Nos meilleurs trucs pour explorer ta sexualité durant tes menstruations

Our best tips for exploring your sexuality during your period

In this article, we are going to delve into a subject that is often taboo, but oh so important: sexuality during menstruation. Yes, yes, you read that right!

Your periods should not be a hindrance to your sexual development, on the contrary, they can be an open door to a deeper connection with yourself and your partner. So, here is your guide to living this experience with complete confidence (and without too much washing to do).

Sexuality during menstruation: deconstructing the myths

First, let's debunk a stubborn myth from the outset: periods are not dirty or impure. They are an integral part of your body's natural cycle and should not be a source of shame or embarrassment. In fact, while it's not the case for everyone, many people find that their libido is higher during their period due to increased blood flow to the pelvic area. So why not embrace this energy and explore it fully?

We did a little in-house survey with our Instagram community asking them what their sexuality was like during menstruation. Here are the answers:

- 51% say they abstain from sexual intercourse

- 17% have sexual intercourse without vaginal penetration

- And 32% have sexual intercourse with vaginal penetration


This means that each person is free to decide whether or not they want to make love during their period.



The Benefits of Sex During Your Period

Besides sexual pleasure, there are many benefits to having sex during your period. First, orgasm can relieve menstrual cramps and reduce headaches, thanks to the release of endorphins, those wonderful happy hormones.

Second, it can strengthen the connection with your partner, creating a space of trust and open communication around sexuality and well-being.

Here are some general tips, shared by our community, to improve your experience:

- The classic towel placed under the buttocks to avoid staining the bed

- Making love in the shower

- Abstain during days of heavier flow

- Use a menstrual disc to prevent leaks

- And have open communication with your partner


Using a menstrual disc during penetration: an intimate revolution

Now, let's talk about using the menstrual disc during penetration. You may be wondering why is this a good idea? Let us explain. Menstrual discs, like those from Fornix , are designed to collect menstrual flow inside the vagina, providing discreet and comfortable protection.

But did you know that they can also be used during vaginal penetration?


3 good reasons to use a menstrual disc during sex

First, menstrual discs are not visible from the outside (except the tab for some people) and do not restrict physical sensations, allowing for a more natural and unfettered sexual experience.

Then, they provide additional protection against menstrual leakage during sexual activity, allowing you to fully concentrate on pleasure without having to worry about staining the sheets.

Additionally, some people find that using a menstrual disc can increase pleasure or pleasurable sensations, all thanks to the back and forth movements that move the disc and stimulate the erogenous zones inside the vagina

A word about the Fornix menstrual disc with tab : collecting testimonials from people who have used it, some mention preferring to use the model with a handle, especially because their partner can feel the ring of the tab during penetration.

That said, it is entirely possible to have sex with the model with a tab by “tucking” it in the vaginal fornix.

It's up to you to explore and see which model suits you best!

Feel free to explore your desires

In conclusion, sex during menstruation is a normal and healthy part of the sex life of many people who menstruate. By fully embracing this time in your cycle and exploring your desires without inhibition, you can discover new dimensions of pleasure and connection with yourself and your partner.

So, free yourself from taboos and prejudices, and let your sexuality flourish fully at each phase of your menstrual cycle.
