Can you have sex when you have your period?

i personally think it's disguisting and so does my hubby he waits patiently for that week to go by but i was talking to a friend and this topic got brought up and she says they have sex all the time when she's on her period they just put a towel down and go at it. so i was wondering how many moms auctually have sex when they are bleeding?

  • Me personally NO, I think it's gross. I feel gross at that time.

  • Towards the end, with a towel to save the bedding... sure
    It really not that messy, bc your body kind of stops bleeding a little when your natural lube kicks in.

    Man... this is one of those questions where it would be nice for everyone to get to be anon.
    I don't really get the NASTY comments... I having sex with MY DH, nothing nasty about it.

  • having sex during your period is no big deal. it's not gross. it helps relieve cramps. doesn't leave that big of a mess

  • Um...yes...lol.

    I just don't do it myself because it'd leave a huge mess!

  • I have more with my ex, but my SO and I have a few times. We just wait until it's really light, near the end, and use a condom. He doesn't really mind if it's not getting all over him. lol!

  • Only once. DH seemed rather "into" it. I wasn't thrilled. Like I said, "Only once!"
    To each his (her) own (said the old lady as she kissed the cow)!

  • Generally no. we have on a rare ocassion if it wasn't heavy. but generally I'm too uncomfortable and don't feel sexy at that time of the month.

  • ORGASIM works so much better than Mydol!

    And it saddens me that so many woman here think their periods are "gross" and not beautiful!

  • we have talked about it in the shower.. the thought of blood being the "wetness" that gets things going makes me sick. if we just WANT to.. we do anal- which is also something that we do just cause.
