It sure is! As long as you're using protection, of course, and both partners are okay w/ it. You might want to put a towel underneath both of you so you don't mess up the sheets or couch or floor ... where ever you happen to be.

Yes, it is okay to have sex while having your period. I do it all the time, because my boyfriend and I don't like taking that many days off from having sex, hehehe. As Smurf said, it is a good idea to put a towel or something underneath you. Because it definitely has the possibility of becoming messy! :-D

It's okay, BUT:

During your period, blood is being released. That means that it is EXTRA important to practice safer sex - latex gloves, condoms, dental dams. Many diseases can be transmitted through contact with blood.

Putting a towel down is also a good idea to protect bedding, since bloodstains can be hard to get out.

You know when you get in the bath and your period *magically* stops? (or slows down) i heard that is the case in sex too...
I heard in on the Sunday night sex show, i'm not positive its true, could someone comment on that?

When you're in water, menstrual blood can just sort of sit where it is, rather than flowing out. If you're lying on your back it can be the same (ever wake up to a perfectly clean pad only to find yourself bleeding a lot a couple of minutes later?), and in this case it's a gravity thing. So, if you're lying down while having sex, gravity might help, but sex won't stop menstrual flow. If anything, orgasm might push blood out if the uterus is contracting strongly.

Sorry to get off topic but I have a question for Milke.

Milke: I noticed your little "Don't think the water" thing, by your location. I'm from Ontario too, and I was just wondering if your were refering to the E-coli thing in Walkerton, or just icky water in general?

Thanks!

It's a Walkerton thing. It really appalled me that such a thing could happen here (toxic drinking water is uaully associated with third world countries where the government and people can't afford to make the situation much better), and is one of the many, many reasons I didn't vote PC.

I noticed when I was on my period and my boyfriend and I were messing around my period seemed to stop for a little while. I wonder what makes it do that. Is it like you guys said before like when you are in water? hmm...
