    @cloverbug:  That happened to me too, when I had a Paragard. I just got a Flexi-T 300 (it’s Canadian, I went to Montreal to get it; it’s smaller and more flexible than the Paragard or the Mirena) and though I’ve only had it for 1 day, I haven’t noticed any poking anywhere.

    To answer the original question! We used to have frequent period sex before we were living together, simply because we only saw each other on weekends, and at that time, my period seemed to come on the weekend constantly! But he was apparently only tolerating that. . . he finds the blood really gross, so now that we live together, it’s rare that we have period sex (unless I am so horny that I can’t help but seduce him, which occasionally happens!). A lot of the time, though, if I’m not feeling horny, I just feel disgusting, and I don’t really like the very wet/sticky sensation. And having an IUD makes me scared to try the softcups, though I would love to!

    A little “crime scene sex” doesn’t bother me, but my Fiance doesn’t like it, so no period sex for us.

    I chose other because we do not prefer to have sex while I am on my period. I usually am horny as eff so we generally try other playfull things. And we dont because neither of us like it. It feels gritty to me like sandy or something and he just is not aroused which defeats the entire point.

    @Hyperventilate:  Could be. He was abusive otherwise so I put it down to ‘another of his perversions’. I guess I was wrong about it.

    We do.  We have a special blue towel to use just for the occasion!  We call it “blue towel sexy time”.  We both might get messy but we figure it’s just blood and we can shower together after if it looks like a murder scene. As far as some getting onto the sheets? That’s why we only buy white ones and always have bleach at the house. ; ) 

    Period sex is great.  Helps your cramps AND mood.

    @Hyperventilate:  i never though to buy plastic steps for the shower, that is a great idea!


    also it depends on my mood the week of my period. My fiance is all for it but sometimes i just feel unattractive.

    Yes we do, but my sex drive is usually low during that week, so it’s not a consistent thing.

    I don’t get periods because I’m on the jab (depo provera) and I haven’t had one since we started dating 5 years ago when I started using it. I don’t think I’d have sex on my period though; think I would feel awkward about it.

    I’ve just come off the depo so every week is “shark week” for me (currently 7 weeks and counting FML). Luckily my Darling Husband doesn’t mind and I’ll just jump him when I am a little lighter… On the Too Much Information side unfortunately my libido has increased soooo much since coming off the depo that I could go every day but my damn body has other ideas 🙁 guess I am lucky that Darling Husband is still willing …
