  • Not usually. I doesn't bother hubby but it does bother me...I just think it's gross and we can survive a few days.

  • Yes. Why? I don't know, we always have though-and it relieves cramps.
    Does it bother me? It used to. but, not really now.
    Does it bother him? No! lol at least I don't think it does or he wouldn't initiate ?
    Putting a towel down helps to not damage the sheets/comforter.

    & Yes, always have a shower after.

  • Yes we do - never considered NOT having sex simply because I have my period. Doesn't bother me or my husband - I've actually never met a man that was bothered by it. We put down a towel and we shower after, or during.

  • Yes, we have sex when I am on my period. We usually take a shower together afterward.

  • No I can't feel "sexy" when I am on it. And it seems gross. He doesn't seem into it either. Once in a while we do IN the shower.

  • No. It bothers me. DH wouldn't mind if we did. He's suggested it a few times and when I turn him down he suggests to do it in the shower. It personally disgusts me. I would rather not be touched sexually while on my period. I'm already uncomfortable enough, that would only make things worse.

  • I'm enlightened by these answers! DH and i have once or twice, but I always assumed he wouldn't be interested. I feel kind of gross, but if he didn't mind, I probably would get used to it. Once I was on my period ON our anniversary, which was the DAY after I got back from being OUT OF THE COUNTRY for 3 WEEKS! Not cool. Fortunately, we had booked a room with a huge jacuzzi bath! Ok, sorry if this is TMI. Anyway, now I'm curious if it bothers DH at all.... Maybe I'll ask him!
