Period Sex Can Actually Banish Your Cramps
Having sex on your period can be a bit taboo in a new relationship or fuck-buddy-ship if you’re straight. Guys are more clueless about periods than they are about how to dress themselves, I’m pretty sure the majority of dudes assume that our vaginas continuously spout blood for an entire week when it’s our time of the month.
Regardless, guys are also horny 24/7, and most of them probably won’t care about a little blood as long as they still get it in. But you still might be self-conscious about unleashing the crimson tide with your dude.
First off, you shouldn’t be self conscious, it’s not like you’ve never dealt with a dude’s bodily fluids before. Secondly, and this is even more important: having an orgasm has been shown to help period cramps. Halle-fucking-lujah.
According to a survey done by Womanizer, “47% of women are not aware that an orgasm can actually help relieve menstrual cramps,” so we’re here to educate you.
Having an orgasm raises your pain threshold, according to Medical Daily, which explains why some of us like a little pain during sex. Some women even reported that masturbating helped cure their PMS symptoms in addition to their cramps.
Of course, every woman is different, and there’s no guarantee that an orgasm will kick your period cramps for good. But why not test the theory? If you don’t have a partner ATM, a solo sesh will do the trick since you’re probs more likely to actually have an orgasm by masturbating anyway.
Even if your period cramps don’t go away completely, we have a feeling that an orgasm will distract you from the pain for at least a little bit. Besides, when did you ever need an excuse to have more sex?
