Sex when she has her period…Yes, No or Maybe

Answered

    Seems that a Biblical case could be made for a husband to leave his wife alone (sexually) during her period (as an act of love).  It also seems like a Biblical case could be made for a wife to recognize her husbands needs and find alternate ways to satisfy her husband (as submission of her body for his fulfillment).

    I am wondering the perspective of the MB group…

    do most abstain under MUTUAL agreement?

    or do both continue to enjoy sex anyways?

    or does the wife meet her husbands need (hate to call it this.. but “duty” sex)  to O with or without her achieving an O?

    Or does the wife rebuff her husbands advances and both feel emotionally rejected by the other?

      We have never had period sex. For one thing, I was extra sensitive, and even the day before, and the day it ended, it was almost painful. Neither of us liked the idea, anyways. My period never lasted more than 5 days, and now it sometimes quits at 3, but more often at 4. I usually give DH a HJ somewhere in there.

        We do most every period. It’s a time I’m positive I’m not fertile, so it’s nice to not have to use a condom. I always feel a little “ick” about it, and I think he does too, but we get past it to enjoy sex condom free.

          My wife has never wanted sex during her period, I think we did it once or twice in 20 plus years.

           

          She does not feel sexual and wants nothing to do with sex, she says I am free to “take care” of myself during that time.

            We still have sex, but after things have lightened up. There seemed to be a higher desire in me at that point. Things can also be more sensitive, in a pleasurable way.

              We tried sex when she had her period and she loved it because she stated there was more lubrication.  It wasn’t that messy.

                I had long periods that were heavy for 3 or 4 days and I didn’t want sex during those times because I had excruciating cramps and felt like I was bleeding to death. But once it lightened up it felt like it dragged on and on and then I was ready to resume but DH was only willing when he was more than typically aroused and only with a condom. Always made me feel a little dirty and rejected, but if he’s grossed out he’s grossed out. It’s not like I’m going to talk him into finding it pleasant.

                  We typically don’t have it during the heavy days. I don’t push and DW prefers to wait. But we don’t see it being wrong.

                  DW is very pleased to take care of me with a HJ or OS.

                    We did it once or twice towards the beginning of our marriage, but now my DW won’t entertain the thought of it. It does have more lubrication, but it was also pretty messy when we tried it and I’m sure that’s what really turned her off to it.

                    From what I’ve read in the past, orgasms during menstruation can actually bring relief to a female and the O feel more intensified. However, I’ve only read that and I have 0.00% experience in that realm, personally.

                      We did not when first married.  After five or so year we did it and though cognitively assured,  from 1 Cor. 7:5, we did feel emotionally odd having done so.   With courage and right, we continued and over a short period of time had no inhibitions to do so.  The flow great or small never phased us after that by mutual agreement.

                        After the flow has lightened, we enjoy having sex so we can have a few days of condom-free sex.
