Let’s count the reasons why period sex can be so beneficial <3
1. Less cramps. Yes, you heard it here first. Period cramps are caused by rhythmic contractions in the uterus… a similar type of pelvic muscle contraction that occurs during an orgasm. It’s been proved to reduce pelvic pain, so there’s a good chance that your cramps will disappear altogether. Some women have even reported that having an orgasm delivers relief from menstrual migraines. Jackpot!
2. Shorter periods. This is truly a life hack. Not only can sex while menstruating, shorten the length of your period (pelvic contractions during orgasm make it easier to pass the contents of the uterus), it can also create a heightened state of arousal. Many women report a higher sex drive during their periods. Fluctuating hormones and increased blood flow may be to blame, but why not take advantage of this increased libido? During one lifetime, women will have their period for roughly 6 and a half years of their life. When you put it that way, that sounds like a very long time to be denying ourselves pleasure!
