What Guys Really Think About Period Sex
Period sex: super-hot, or a total turn-off? Before you completely dismiss the possibility, consider that a recent Men's Health poll determined 60 percent of men would be down for having sex during your period. Really.
Clint Carter, our resident Guy Next Door columnist, breaks down how to approach the topic with your dude and gives one reader the male perspective on getting down and dirty:
When I'm on my period, I'm super-aroused all the time. Any hope of convincing my man that period sex is great? —Renee, Norman, OK
I have a confession: Guys are stupefied about what to do with periods. In fact, your man probably has no idea that you're still interested in sex during yours. Can you convince him it's worth the minor ick factor? Probably. Give him the hard sell: At this point in your menstrual cycle, your hormones have you locked in sexual standby, so he can pretty much rock your world with very little effort. Now you have his attention. If he's game to try, you can ease his nerves by going at it in the shower or putting a towel down for stain-free sheets. And during the action, reassure him that everything he's doing feels amazing.
