Period sex is a divisive one—some people love it because all those extra hormones turn them into a total horndog. Others feel gross and bloaty and crampy and generally hideous, and couldn't imagine anything worse. These women and vagina-owners, who have all tried receiving oral sex while on le blob, explain what it feels like. And yeah, they're pretty much just very into it.
"It was one of the best orgasms I've had."
"I recently received oral while on my period. It was probably one of the best orgasms I've ever had, the second time he went down. This is just a fuck buddy, not kinky at all when it comes to toys and things. But damn, can this guy eat pussy. The fact that he wanted to eat me out even on my period was startling, but Hot. As. Fuck. I was talking to another guy for awhile, he wouldn't even bang me on my period, with a menstrual cup in, and a condom. Then this guy comes along! I was kinda nervous but he made it fine, he said, 'I'm a grown up.' And that was that. Bam!" [via]
"It turned me on so much."
"I was so surprised when my boyfriend did this, but it was amazing. It turned me on so much and I honestly felt so much respect and attraction to him at that moment, especially because he was being enthusiastic even though there was blood. I love [it], it's so intense." [via]
"It was super intense."
"I accidentally experienced this for the first time last week. I was at the tail end anyway and thought I had finished and my FWB and I had already been at it pretty roughly. After a breather for a drink, we went back at it, and he stopped part way through and gave me oral. It was super intense, and I did not realize until after that I was still on my period. Maybe this was part of why it was amazing. I messaged him to apologize for not warning him after, and he didn't care and said not to worry, he loved it." [via]
"It makes me swoon."
"My bf did this without me asking. He stays near the clit instead of digging in when I'm on my period, but damn does it make me swoon. I love him so much." [via]
"I got self-conscious about orgasming."
"I've had oral on my period twice, and I couldn't let myself relax enough to have a big O. In general, I get crazy horny on my period anyway. But then I get self-conscious about orgasms [because] I squirt." [via]
"I miss it dearly."
"I had a FWB that would do this. Ugh, I miss him dearly, but he moved away. He came to visit me once and I was so bummed because I was going to be on my period. When I told him his answer was, 'so?!' [via]
"We had a grand old time."
"I just had first time period oral a few days ago. I had a menstrual cup in place, so it had been previously discussed as a possibility for consideration. I was still a little apprehensive that he would be squeamish, but he handled it like a champ and we had a grand old time." [via]
