OK, this morning I was doubly blessed, as the SO began her monthly cycle. Blessed because I sqeaked by another month, and blessed again, because I thoroughly enjoy this time. I don't know if I'm just a sick fuck, or if she's giving off these freakish pheremones, or what, but I really enjoy going down on her during this period, so to speak, as does she. My question to the guys, am I alone in this, and for the girls, how do you feel about this activity during the time.

I'm a naturally squeamish person, so I don't know whether I'd be able to suppress my "isn't it gross down there?" thoughts. However, that area is a lot more sensitive during my period, so I'm not surprised that your girlfriend enjoys oral sex during that time.

I personally never had any problem with it. I've never found a girl who wasn't totally against the idea, though.

I have no problem with a man who wants to go downtown during "that time". I'm always more hot-blooded when Aunt Flo visits, but I have yet to meet a guy who isn't grossed out by the idea of putting his face there. Well, one guy didn't mind...after I'd gone through cleansing rituals that would make a levitical priest weep with pride!

Yuk.

All I can think of is that any guy who says he wouldn't mind it is thinking that all that's going on down there is a bunch of blood. Like a cut or something.

Us girls know better.

It's a goddamn UTURINE LINING that's sloughing off. It can get CHUNKY. Goddamn it, it's my own body, and I think it's gross. There ain't no way I'd let any man who I liked anywhere near it with his mouth.

I see...so I'm either "special," or disgusting. I knew I could count on you good people to clarify that for me. Thanks for your input. Happy Thanksgiving all, and remember where the stuffing came from...

Considering during that time few women want to be anywhere near me, I've given it up. That & the fact that HIV is so ever present in zee blood.

It doesn't bother me if I'm confident I'm not going to bleed all over him. (There are things I do to make sure that doesn't happen when we do get involved that way.)

If I'm in a serious, exclusive relationship, I have no problem with it. Wash up, put a fresh tampon in, and go to it. As far as intercourse goes, throw down a towel to avoid too much of a mess, and do it.

If the OP meant "Can I get her to start early, so we can switch from PMS to red-faced diving?" The answer is maybe. Many women have had an early start triggered by an anxious event, such as an appointment with her OB/GYN or a big dinner with the inlaws. Take her to a scary movie, or nearly have a car crash. Tell her you started this thread. Well, maybe not that.

Tampon, hell. You can do anything you might normally do with instead in place. Best damn thing since sliced bread. We have the technology...

No objections, current SO has none either. I suppose I'd think it was a little weird if I were with a guy who really really looked forward to it, but I don't think I'd complain either.

Yeah, the removal instructions make it sound like a real mess. I think I'll pass, thanks.

When I was in the service, I was at this party where this drunken G.I. ate out his girlfriend while she was on her period. He then stumbled down the stairs afterwards and passed out on the living room floor with blood smeared all over his face!



Of course, we never let him live it down.

I've done it many times. I don't enjoy it particularly more during the menses, but it doesn't bother me at all, either.

Most gals are squeamish about it....but those who've allowed me oralize during the crimson tide have decided they really like it.

I just like cunnilingus, period.

(no pun intended)

I'll gobble up uterine lining, but what really makes me red-faced is a poorly previewed post.

That should have said: "...allowed me to oralize..."


Oh, and it seems to me that sex itself can "jump start" the flow sometimes.

Ok, I am sure this is a dumb statement but here goes:

You always here the jokes and comments about the odor of a woman. Then they have extra deoderizing for that "time of the month" I do not get how one would get past the smell. But then this is not a task I would want to participate in tide or not I do not think I would be thrilled to do so if men had a Uncle Flo either, but that is just my prefrence.

IMHO, the scent is different, but not unpleasant.

If you have ever lived with a woman and been intimate with her regularly, you would know that hormonal cycles cause changes in scent, lubrication and other variables... Even what a person eats makes a difference in what he or she tastes/smells like "down there." Try eating a whole head of roasted garlic on toast and sweating, and notice how you smell.

Quite true.

As I said in some related thread, I had a SO who loved garlic and ate it in huge quantities.

Happily, I love garlic, too.
