A while ago I overheard two girlfriends having a conversation with each other about the new love of one of them. He wanted to have sex with her, but she told him she was menstruating, to which he replied that he thought that was kind of hot. It was “his thing”. The girlfriend told in detail how the sheets and his face were full of blood, followed by a screeching “ew” from girlfriend 2.
Now it has also happened to me on occasion that a woman was in her period while we were having sex. As a man, I was OK with that and had no objections. But actively looking for it, that’s something completely different.
Into the thing
Curious as we are here at the NBRplaza, we decided to delve deeper into the subject. And it turns out that there are indeed men and women who are ‘into the thing’. The reasons appear to be both psychological and physical. Sometimes it is just practical but more often it is connected to an erotic association and the pride that comes with the female body in all its phases. In men it can also be a modern form of masculinity, a kind of hard core connoisseurship.
Menstruation, to the average fellow human being, is rather, well, gross. It can contaminate your upholstery beyond repair. The sight of blood sends some people off their feet almost immediately.
That makes menstrual sex a sophisticated maneuver reserved for seasoned connoisseurs who aren’t afraid of an after sex hangover. Or in the words of comedian Louis C.K. “fuck her in her red week hole, idiot, what are you waiting for? I don’t give a shit if you’re menstruating or not. Just come over. I’m 41. I’ll fuck your brains out. I’ll drink your blood. Bring it on!”
A good sailor
A well-known saying is that “a good sailor also sails through the red sea”. An experienced lover will have no problem with this and does not shy away from it. The vagina is also much more sensitive during her period.
For some, menstrual sex is not a dirty necessity for the desperate horny. It’s an activity you have to wait a whole month for. With a smile because of the anticipation. Such people look forward to that one week and are comfortable being celibate during the periods in between. A tampon is a sex toy for them. Model Jamie Peck wrote of photographer Terry Richardson that she kindly thanked him when he offered to make tea from her bloody tampon.
The attraction of bloody week can go far. Some men schedule their dates to coincide with her period. And the women who agree to this sometimes use the conveniences of the pill to better plan that period. They deliberately swallow for several months, hoping and assuming that they will be extra bloody when they have their stop week. The men find it horny when the blood pours out like in a cheap horror movie. They prefer to be covered in blood after the deed, from mouth to knee. These men don’t want you to have a tampon in while going down on you.
It is not only the blood that attracts those men, but also the stronger musky scent that the woman secretes during her period. It is a primal urge with two sides. The potential for uncontrollable gratification is great, but humiliation lurks. For women who are already embarrassed about the smell and the dirt, a partner going for it can elicit a reaction of disgust, to say the least.
This abhorrence is ancient. In the Old Testament it was already considered distasteful (Leviticus: “When a woman’s blood flows from her sheath, the period of her uncleanness lasts seven days. Anyone who touches her during this period is unclean until the evening. 20 Anything on which she lies or sits during her period becomes unclean. 21-22 Anyone who touches her bed, or anything on which she has sat, must wash his clothes and himself with water and remain unclean until the evening. 22 [21-22] 23 Whoever touches anything lying on her bed or on any object on which she has sat is unclean until the evening. 24 If a man has intercourse with her, so that he comes into contact with her blood, he remains unclean for seven days. Everything on which he lies also becomes unclean).
Strawberries with cream
But even for men who can’t stand blood very well, this monthly period of discomfort can be exciting. That’s because some women actually get excited during that week. And their excitement is contagious. To make her cum screaming, you’ll take the taste of a rather raw steak and the post coital sight of a human carnage.
Now, during an average 10 to 15 minutes of sex, not that much blood is released. But the little blood that does flow does act as a natural lubricant. Good for the Leviticans among us.
A friend of the editorial staff told us that she had a sex date at a hotel the other day. “The sheets were full of stains. But it felt wonderful. Animal-like. Like I was tighter. Much more sensitive. I felt like I could feel my heartbeat beating in my pussy and my ass. I was super sensitive and my orgasm was overwhelming. The blood on the sheets wasn’t even because it had run out of me, but was wiped out from his cock as we lay next to each other puffing out.”
The increased female libido does not occur in all women, but is associated with increased blood flow in the pubic area and with the hormone estrogen released at the beginning of menstruation which increases the need for sex. But what also plays a role is the thought that she cannot get pregnant during this period and thus can have uninhibited sex. The latter, however, is the wrong thought. Yes, the chances are much lower, but it is not impossible to get pregnant. Also, during menstruation, the woman is much more susceptible to bacterial infections and STDs. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to use a condom if you are not both convinced monogamous.
For women, it can also be enjoyable to have “strawberry-with-cream sex” because the man shows that he finds her attractive at her least attractive moment.
