Should I be masturbating on my period?

Masturbating on your period is totally normal – and completely okay!

Does masturbating during your period sound a little too messy to you? Like too much hassle? Well, we’re actually more sexually aroused during our periods, so keep reading to learn how to masturbate during your period without making a mess, and how it not only feels great but is also good for your health...

Does masturbation help period pain?

As if masturbation isn’t good enough on its own, the question is, ‘does masturbation help period pain’? And the answer is YES – we couldn’t believe it either! Masturbation has been proven to help period pain including cramps, back ache, joint pain and headaches. This is because during an orgasm the body releases a rush of the hormones dopamine and serotonin, which act as pain relievers. Possibly the most pleasant and natural pain relief EVER, right?😆 

If this isn’t enough proof that masturbating on your period is definitely okay, then it also improves your mood too! We can all have emotional rollercoasters on our period, so why not relieve a bit of stress? During an orgasm, endorphins are released which cause a chemical reaction to relieve stress, ultimately boosting your mood and relaxing you.

So the answer to the ongoing question of ‘can you masturbate on your period?’ is yes. Masturbation will not interfere with your period at all, but it may cause a little mess – which is why we’re here to help! If you’re worried about stains, lay a towel down underneath you or try masturbating in the shower. While this can often be sexually satisfying, make sure you don’t spray the water directly into your vagina as this can disrupt the pH levels. To avoid mess altogether, you can wear a tampon during foreplay, but be sure to take it out before penetrative sex or masturbation. You can also pop a condom onto your sex toys for an easy clean-up or keep some wipes or cleaner to hand for afterwards. Alternatively, you can embrace the period and go wild!
