Try Some Period Sex-Specific Innovations
Ever heard of Thinx, makers of the period-proof underwear with those awesome advertisements? Well they just expanded their *oeuvre* and released a special Period Sex Blanket, meant to take the taboo out of period sex. It comes in a pretty opalescent pink color, and has a space age-y sheen to it. Of course, with a $369 price tag it’s decidedly notfor the casual period sex haver, but if you’re serious about your bloody lovin’ and want to spend your money on tech that says so, this may be just the thing for you. Check it out here.
If you prefer something a bit more wearable, there’s also Flex. It’s a 12-hour tampon alternative that’s kind of like a diva cup in that it catches the blood that’s coming out of you, but with one really cool twist: Because it sits in your vaginal fornix (the part by your cervix), rather than canal, it collects blood without getting in the way of intercourse. That means you can enjoy hormones coursing through your body during that time of the month mess-free . (Here’s a review that might help you get a better idea of how it works.) It costs $15 for 16 Flex discs, so they’re affordable, too. You can buy them here.
And for after-the-fact, Sustain makes all-natural Post-Play Wipes specifically for when you’re done doin’ it and want to feel cleaner than T.P. allows, but don’t have time to hop in the shower. They’re $11 a pack, and you can get them here.
