For some men, a period doesn’t stop anything but a sentence and will still get freaky when Aunty Flo is in town.
Fans of period sex argue that it’s not only more pleasurable for the woman during that time as blood acts as a natural lubricant but also eases menstrual cramps.
Those against it abhor it because they think blood is disgusting and messy plus they don’t want their bedroom to look like a slaughterhouse.
Apart from the lack of aesthetic appeal, having sex during your period holds two dangers; it increases your chance of catching a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) like HIV and Hepatitis and you can STILL get pregnant because sperm can survive in the body for up to seven days.
“Having sex during your period has the risk of spreading a sexually transmitted infection (STI) like HIV or Hepatitis. These viruses live in blood, and they can spread through contact with infected menstrual blood. Using condoms every time you have sex can reduce your risk of spreading or catching an STI,” explains an excerpt from healthline.com.
