Why Is Period Sex Considered Taboo? Let’s Talk A Tit Bit About It

By  | 

Humans have been around for like a billion years. So, I think it is safe to say that our species has seen the world grow and now it’s seeing the world die but that is a story for another time. We have been through wars, colonization and nuclear blasts and now we are going through what can only be called the worst pandemic to hit the world since the 1920 plague outbreak. But for some reason despite all that, one of the world’s biggest pet peeve is a woman bleeding from her vagina for five days every month. Don’t scrunch your face in disgust, you know I am right.

I really need someone to spell this out. Because for the life of me I have never understood what is so disgusting about periods that it makes people so uncomfortable. I mean, women around the world are shamed for something they don’t control. More than half the men don’t even know what goes down when a woman is menstruating because we aren’t allowed to talk about it in front of them, why? Do people really think that if we had a choice, we would choose the PMS, the cramps, the mood swings and the bloating? And don’t even get me started on the raging hormones.

Now that we have established how ill at ease menstruation makes people, I would like to clarify my story isn’t about that (sorry if I lead you on). Today, I am talking about something that is related to menstruation, but it makes people like thousand times more uncomfortable- period sex.

For the people who live in denial period sex, like the name suggests, is having sex when you are chumming. Yes, it is very messy and the thought of it makes some people nauseous and that is okay. What is not okay is denying its existence altogether because it is related to something that is considered taboo.

Keeping that in mind, I feel like it is very important to at least educate yourself and if you are open to it (as you should be) I urge you to go ahead and listen to our latest TitBits podcast. It talks about all things related to period sex and why it is important for every woman to try it at least once.

So, we spoke to several women about it and the first thing that came to their mind was the colour red, how messy everything gets and the fact that period sex is “dirty but kinky”. There is no reason to get grossed out because it is no secret that women do get horny while they are menstruating.

When asked whether they would try it, one woman said sometimes she thinks it is a good time to have sex her partner doesn’t. Another person said that though it is messy, but period sex gets her extremely turned on. However, another person said that she avoids being “sexually active on her periods”.

Look, no one is saying that you have to try it. That is one hundred percent between you and your partner. But, you need to know that there is absolutely nothing to be grossed out about because sometimes at the end of the day all you need is good sex- even if you are on your period. Actually, more so if you are on your period.
