Why is masturbating during your period beneficial?

The libido has reasons that reason ignores. While some menstruators don't even consider having sex during their period because they find it dirty or it's painful, others have a libido that explodes at that exact time in their cycle! With your partner or alone, you can enjoy sex and masturbation during your period. It’s even beneficial! Let's find out five reasons why it's sweet to masturbate during your period.

1. Does good

This is certainly the first reason why it is beneficial to masturbate during your period: it feels good! If you want to masturbate, whether you're on your period or not, there's no reason to stop you! Find our article on How to masturbate : we offer you 4 sensual challenges to increase desire!

2. Relieves Menstrual Cramps

The second reason why it is interesting to masturbate during your period is that this practice releases different hormones that have a positive role on the body : welcome to endorphins, oxytocin and other dopamine! This whether or not you reach orgasm. These hormones have the characteristic of numbing pain, bringing a feeling of well-being and reducing stress... Do you see where we are going with this? And yes, masturbating during your period helps reduce menstrual cramps!

❤️ You can enjoy the calming effect of hot water and masturbation by caressing yourself in your bath... Double cool kiss effect.

3. Reduces stress

The third reason why masturbating during your period is beneficial is that practicing masturbation and achieving orgasm helps reduce stress! (And yes, still the effect of the famous love hormones!) The arrival of periods is often marked by mood swings and peaks of stress and anxiety (stress and anxiety are symptoms of PMS ), we understand quite easily how the practice of masturbation during menstruation can be interesting!

4. Helps you get to sleep

Endorphins, these magic molecules! In addition to reducing stress and relieving period pain , they also make it easier to sleep. You sleep faster and deeper! Masturbate in the evening, when you go to bed, to benefit from this rather special effect!

5. Reduces period duration

Last and surprising reason to masturbate... It can help reduce the length of your period! This effect is a consequence of the contraction of all the muscles which participate in sexual desire and then in orgasm: when the whole body contracts at the time of orgasm, this helps to facilitate the expulsion of the endometrium, the uterine lining which thickened during the luteal phase to accommodate the fertilized egg. And the faster the uterine lining is expelled, the shorter the period lasts! Another good reason to do yourself some good, right?

4 tips for masturbating during your period

Before starting, know that there are no specific tips for masturbating during your period : everything will depend on the gestures that you like and whether or not you are uncomfortable with the blood from your period.

Favor the shower/bath if your menstruation bothers you

Would you like to masturbate during your period but are a little disgusted by the blood that flows from you or by the smell of blood linked to your period and your menstrual products ? It is not abnormal to have blockages when it comes to sexuality: it is entirely possible that it bothers you!

One way to feel more comfortable is to caress yourself in the shower or bathtub. Rinse yourself beforehand so that you feel fresh and let yourself go. As a bonus, you can stimulate yourself with the spray from the shower head if you're not comfortable using your fingers.

Keep period panties/menstrual protection

Is your thing to stimulate yourself in thought? Do you like to masturbate just by imagining scenarios? Then your period shouldn't be a problem! To avoid staining yourself and your sheets, you can totally keep your period panties or any other menstrual protection!

Is there a contraindication to masturbating with a tampon or menstrual cup?

You can masturbate with a tampon or menstrual cup as long as you don't insert anything into your vagina. If you prefer to stimulate yourself with penetration, whatever it may be, you will need to remove your internal hygienic protections, tampon and/or cup. The risk then is to insert them too deeply and 1) hurt your cervix and 2) not be able to remove them.

Opt for the terry towel

Do you want to masturbate in your bed? To avoid disasters and bloody images worthy of a horror film, favor the use of a terry towel or a microfiber towel (it's softer). Place it below your butt and don't worry about it anymore.

💡 And to rinse it? Rinse it like you rinse your period pants . When the blood is still damp (avoid waiting too long), rinse it in cold water (hot water cooks the blood and tends to leave marks) and then put it in the washing machine. Your towel will come out clean.

Use a sex toy

Do you like to caress yourself with your fingers but you don't feel comfortable with the idea during your period? Maybe this is the right opportunity to test sex toys ? A majority of sex toys can be used during your period. You just need to rinse them well after use. So, are you ready to give it a try?

🌈 On the store, we have selected different sex toys for you, for the pleasures they offer but also for their refined and feminine designs.
