How To Relieve Sexual Tension On Your Period

I wish I was one of those people who can embrace their periods wholeheartedly. But alas, they just piss me off. In this article I am going to discuss the often taboo subject of how to relieve sexual tension on your period.

I remember being very anxious for them to arrive in my teens. They seemed to signal the magical arrival of maturity, womanhood, and french kissing. Sadly I had a slightly longer wait than many. I was 14 and a half I think, when they finally arrive. These days kids in large numbers are getting their first periods even younger than ever before. Still, I felt like quite the late bloomer and was very relieved when I finally got my period. Little did I know I would wish them right back away again as soon as the novelty wore off.

Tips For How To Relieve Sexual Tension On Your Period

I am lucky as I don’t suffer from the severe pain, nausea and even dysphoria that some of my friends do at that time of the month. But I do experience cramps, bloating, become sick of the mess, and feel tired and grumpy during my period. I try to keep a period-survival kit around to keep me feeling human. Since working at Adult Lifestyle Centres I have added a few products to that survival kit. I also have my eye on another which I think would be a really luxurious and sensible addition. Let’s now discuss some tips for how to relieve sexual tension on your period guide.

Raspberry Leaf Tea And Comfy Clothes For Period Pain

I always keep raspberry leaf tea for cramps, painkillers, and comfy clothes at my disposal when I feel the bloat coming on. I am not very regular but Mother Nature has blessed me with the oh so helpful indicator of going up a pants size when I am a few days from due. Thanks for that.

Yoga And Stretching For Period Relief

I also keep my yoga mat handy to look at guiltily when I’m complaining about the cramps to my partner and anyone else in my immediate vicinity or on Facebook. When I force myself to stretch I always glad, but why is it that when we feel like crap we really don’t wanna go to the effort of doing things that we know help us to feel better?!

TV And A Love For Food

Along with stretching, a yoga mat also offers a comfortable seat when I call my army of cats to me for cuddles and warmth, while watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer (the early 90s film version with Luke Perry, suck it Joss Whedon) and gorging on ice cream and Smiths original crisps. The eating is a lot more comforting than yoga, to be honest.

Use Essential Oils To Relax During Your Period

Essential oils help me relax, and I like to use them in a burner and for stomach massages as well as on period pimples which pop up like clockwork for me. Warm socks are important as I have crappy circulation, and cold feet make period cramps that much more miserable.

Condoms Are In My Period Essentials Kit

Most of you have probably heard that orgasms and sex generally help relieve period cramps, and I have found that to be true for many years. Condoms are in my period essentials kit (although I don’t normally use them with my long term partner) because it makes clean up easier. Period sex is awesome and I would honestly never be with a partner who couldn’t handle it, though I know not everyone feels the same.

My Go To Oral Stimulator Is The Satisfyer Pro 2

A reliable vibrator or similar sex toy is always a help. My go to is the Satisfyer Pro 2 which simulates sucking rather than vibrations, and is most effective for me. Even if you don’t have a partner, or one on call for every time the cramps get bad, masturbation can generally help a lot. If you needn’t get your hands bloody it’s even better. Use a toy that can be easily cleaned and requires as little maintenance effort as possible!

Soft Tampons Are Great For Period Sex During Your Period

A little gem I had never heard of before working at Adult Lifestyle Centres are soft tampons. Soft tampons are just a little sponge, hygienically wrapped, which can be inserted and used like a regular tampon.

After dampening the tip with lube or water, you squish it up and push it into your vagina, and it is super comfortable and super absorbent. But the really super thing about them is that you can wear soft tampons when you have penetrative sex.

Neither you, or your partner can generally feel them. For me they work so well that no blood is even transferred onto my partner when we have sex. Extra lube is your friend though. These tampons are so absorbent you will want a little help in that department. I just love not having to worry about blood on the sheets or towels, and weirdly I seem to get a little raw from penetration when I am bleeding. Soft tampons eliminate that problem.

Superslyde Is My Favourite Silicone Lubricant

Superslyde lubricant is also now in my emergency period kit. It’s also great for shower sex (another period-sex fave) because it is silicone and won’t be washed away in the shower like a water based lube.  If you are into shower sex either during menstruation or at any other time, Sex In The Shower make some great products to make it more convenient and satisfying, from waterproof bullets to handles, and props to make achieving different sex positions easier and safer in the hot, steamy and slippery bathroom environment.

I Love Bodywands For Extra Power

I believe massage is one of the best things you can do during your period, either self massage or at the hands of another. What can make it a lot easier and more effective though is a Bodywand or other massaging wand. This style of toy comes in many different sizes, battery powered, plug in, or rechargeable, and there are even waterproof varieties. I highly recommend getting one of these toys as not only are they great for helping to achieve orgasm, they also do a pretty neat job massaging you anywhere else on the body you need to relax. This makes sense since that is what they were originally designed for –  before everyone figured out they were even more fun when diverted for sexual purposes!

Lelo’s Siri 2 Helps Me Relax With Music

Whenever I am feeling yuck during my period , I also like to crank the tunes. Whether it’s something relaxing or something to scream along to while venting all my frustrations, music always helps get me through. On my wishlist for period comfort is Lelo’s Siri 2 music vibrator. This nifty toy detects sound vibrations and pulses along with the beat. Singing along with L7’s Shitlist already helps, but how much better could it be if it was also getting me off at the same time?

Hot Water Bottles, Heating Packs And Heating Vibrators Soothe My Cramps!

A hot water bottle or heating pack has always been on my must-have list for when good old Aunty Flo comes to visit, but if you have a spare couple of hundred bucks I have an even better suggestion – the truly awesome invention that is the heating vibrator. Think about it – this toy combines two of the most brilliant tools for relief of cramps – comfort, relaxation, heat AND orgasms on demand. Can you really get any better than that? Maybe it could be improved if it also dispensed ice cream, but somehow I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. A girl can dream though, right?

I think heating vibrators are a great idea for winter, as I am not a major fan or icy cold toys on my nether regions, but it only recently occurred to me that they would be a fantastic option for masturbation on-the-rag. I am almost looking forward to the dreaded flow next month as I’m so getting one of these amazing beauties for myself.

Pretty Love Crazy Hot Rabbit Style Vibrator

Probably the most popular heating vibrators I have sold is the Pretty Love Crazy Hot rabbit style vibrator. It’s gorgeously purple, safely silicone, and the shaft is shaped well for awesome G-spot stimulation. Both the shaft and the clitoral stimulation arm have 10 modes, it has 2 motors and is a rechargeable toy so you don’t have to worry about replacing batteries.

This toy is also fully waterproof which makes it super handy, and it has a digital temperature display so you can keep an eye on how hot things are getting. The Pretty Love Crazy Hot heats to 45 degrees celsius, so you won’t burn yourself, but be pleasantly warmed. It is also easy to operate, simple operation buttons located on the handle.

So there you go. I hope I’ve given you a few ideas in the guide to how to relieve sexual tension on your period. Don’t forget if you are experiencing any severe period symptoms, visit your doc and tell them what’s going on.

Fortunately, there are several methods available that can help alleviate these symptoms. From herbal remedies to lifestyle changes, finding relief is possible. By incorporating relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing exercises and meditation, individuals can help reduce both physical and emotional tension. Additionally, incorporating gentle exercises, such as yoga or stretching, can help relax the muscles and ease the pain associated with period cramps. Furthermore, exploring natural supplements like magnesium or omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to have potential benefits in reducing period pain. Consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new treatments or supplements. By taking a proactive approach and exploring various strategies, individuals can find relief from both period pain and sexual tension. So don’t suffer in silence – take control of your well-being with these natural methods.

  2. Having your period can be a real pain, both literally and figuratively. But fear not, there are quick and easy ways to alleviate period pain and its accompanying symptoms. Whether you’re dealing with cramps, bloating, or mood swings, these tips will help you find relief in no time. So kick back, relax, and let’s tackle period pain together!

    First and foremost, heat is your best friend when it comes to soothing period pain. Applying a heating pad or hot water bottle to your lower abdomen can work wonders in relieving cramps. The warmth helps to relax your muscles and increase blood flow, providing much-needed relief. If you don’t have a heating pad, a warm bath or a hot towel will do the trick as well.

    Next, don’t underestimate the power of exercise. While it may be tempting to curl up on the couch with a tub of ice cream, getting your body moving can actually help alleviate period pain. Exercise releases endorphins, which act as natural painkillers, and can also help improve blood circulation. You don’t need to run a marathon, a brisk walk or some gentle yoga stretches will do the trick.

    Look after your diet during your period. Avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and sugary foods can help reduce inflammation and bloating. Instead, opt for foods rich in magnesium, calcium, and vitamin D, such as leafy greens, bananas, and salmon. These nutrients can help with muscle relaxation and overall well-being.

    Period pain is a natural part of being a woman, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through it. By following these quick and easy tips, you can find relief and make your period a little more bearable. So the next time Aunt Flo pays you a visit, be prepared to kick period pain to the curb!
