Oooohh yeah.

A few days before, and during my period, I get EXTREMELY horny, which kind of sucks because my partner doesn't like having sex when I'm on the rag because of the mess. I have no idea why this happens...Maybe it's psychological in the sense that our bodies are thinking, 'Oh no! Period time! Get sex before it's too late!'



"Her laugh turned to a moan at the first ripple in her bones.
She tensed her thighs and abdomen to will the change on, and
clutched the night air like a lover as her fingers lengthened
and her nails sprouted...The night, she thought, the sweet night"

I found its not messy at all if you have sex in the shower. Maybe you can pursuade him to do that, at least try it once.

Actually, what Wild says is rweally on target. Most gynecologists and sexologists suspect that what's happening is that just like ovulation biologically may make us want intercourse because we ARE fertile, menses may make us want it because we're going through the mirror of that process.

In addition, for many women it relieves cramps and adds extra lubrication, making intercourse more pleasurable than at other times in our cycle.

It doeesnt bother my boyfriend a bit. We just put a towel under us when we do it. And it does add that extra lube. I think i might even like it better then.

Yes!! It happens to me too!! The reason you get so horny BEFORE your period is cuz its when you're ready to be impregnated! Your body is just ready for fertilisation (sp?)... its like "Hey dont make me waste this egg. Get a giddyup already."

I'm the same way. I feel like a total nympho around my period! The good news is that there are plenty of boys who don't mind having sex with you at that time at all! It's a great time to be having sex outdoors, or even on the floor. It's easier to avoid a possible mess that way.

I thought this was just me! I am always horny during my period. One way that i can tell that my period will be starting in a day or a few hours is that I'll have erect nipples all day. They ache sometimes, but they tell me that I am close to starting. My guy friend, knowing of my intensified sexual arousal during this special time, prefers to be sexually active during my period as long as I am ok with it. That's grat for me. I get a little bit more pleasure for it during that time.

This relates to me as well. I seem to have an increase in my sexual hormones when i am on my time of the month. My boyfriend and I still have sex even though it's messy lol because he knows it brings me more pleasure

Just a reminder:

The risk of transmission of some STIs (including HIV) is greatly increased if you've got blood around. So safer sex is extra important during menstruation.

My boyfriend and I have sex more often on my period than any other time usually. It really does feel great, especially when it takes your mind off those damned cramps, hehe. Also, I find that its easier to be a little more experimental when its that time of the month-- we had anal sex for the first time then, and I think thats why I got hooked on it.

Definately! i get that as well
Especially the last days of my period and the day or 2 after its just finished.
I heard it was because there was increased blood flow down there and so it makes you so much more sensitive to everything.

i just wanted to put another vote in the "shower" box. It really is a great place to get rid of that extra arousal for those few days. By yoruself or with a partner... I swear it eases some of the cramps

Showers good but I hate water being sprayed in my face so I'm always watch it with the water....Easy now....wohhhh spalater cough cough. Nope I don't like water sprayed in my face.

But I agree with everyone, the time of the month drives me crazy, it makes me want him even more!

Why is it that the person that makes you cry, is the only one who can make you stop.

OMG I'm SOOOO glad that I'm not the only person who gets that way. Even though sex while you're on your period doesn't sound too clean. Plus every guy I know when a period is mentioned they TOTALLY freak! Wussies. Agh, does anyone know what causes certain girls to be more aroused or craving sex around their periods??? This really puzzles me

Geez im so glad im not alone here!! *laughs* Ive always really really craved bein sexual like rite b4 i go on my period or during the 1st couple days. I thought it was really weird, but its nice 2 know other women feel the same way. Does anyone know the real reason 4 this though? Does it have something 2 do w/ our bodies and hormonal stuff? Or is it something else? just curious.
