Your Period Came, And So Should You

I usually struggle with dryness, but during my period, everything flows—which is why menstruation is my favourite time for masturbation.


Menses and Masturbation

Masturbating during menstruation is neither dirty nor reprehensible. On the contrary, your body desires. It also has the benefit of leading to a healthy hormone shift since pleasure-killing progesterone abruptly ceases. Many people get extra horny during their menstruation, at least especially compared to their progesterone-rich days.

Mood Boost

Since this sudden hormonal shift can impact our mood, we can benefit from a few extra doses of happiness. Let your orgasm help. Orgasms release endorphins that can alleviate cramps and menstrual pain, aid sleep and make your body feel great, even when you’re bloated.

Avoid Skin Irritation

If you don’t feel like someone has sprayed you with a thick layer of WD40, consider using lube. Especially on weak days or when you use menstrual cups or tampons, some natural secretions may be lost, which is entirely normal. Try to avoid irritating the skin, especially when you’re already bleeding. Perceiving injuries might be more difficult.

Good Vibrations

Inserting fingers or sex toys into your vagina can be challenging with tampons or a menstrual cup. In such cases, focus on your clitoris or remove your period product. Massage your nipples and enjoy external touch. Sex toys like the pressure wave vibrator or lay-on vibrators stimulate the clitoris and are easy to clean with warm water and soap.

Free Bleeding

If you use pads or period panties, you can insert fingers or sex toys vaginally. Keep tissues handy to wipe away menstrual blood, or place a towel underneath. Alternatively, forget the towel and embrace the resulting stains as a sign of liberated sex.

No Desire for Desire

While this is my perspective, I acknowledge that not everyone wants to or can be sexually active during their period. Unfortunately, there’s still shame, stigma and disgust associated with self-pleasure during menstruation, whereas cis men often face no such barriers to masturbation land. So come to the amusement park; the power tower is waiting for you.


Masturbation is having sex with the most important person in your life. You’re allowed to touch yourself at any time, whether you’re bleeding or not.
