Jodie Lawes, a 31-year-old lawyer from London
I can honestly say I’ve never had intentional period sex in my entire life and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on much. I’ve done it when I’ve been due to come on and have been met with a rather bloody surprise, but aside from that, it’s just never really something that’s appealed to me. I’m bloated, in pain and generally feel crappy, and having my boyfriend poke around up there doesn’t always seem like the most appealing of events. It’s not that I’m not in the mood when I’m on my period, but I feel like it’s a time where my body is expelling fluids it wants to get rid of, so I don’t want anything all up in there pushing it back in and getting in the way. Juvenile? Maybe. But you wouldn’t have anal if you needed a sh*t, would you? As far as I’m concerned, during that week, my body is off limits to everyone except me, and I’m 100% okay with that.
