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. I remember being very anxious for them to arrive when I was a tween, as they seemed to signal the magical arrival of maturity, womanhood, and french kissing, and sadly I had a slightly longer wait than many – I was 14 and a half I think, when they finally arrived, and felt positively ancient. These days kids in large numbers are getting them even younger than ever before but back then it wasn’t quite that drastic. Still, I felt like quite the late bloomer and was very relieved when they finally did come. Little did I know I would wish them right back away again as soon as the novelty wore off.

I am lucky, 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 get cramps and bloating and sick of the mess and tired and grumpy with them so I try to keep a period-survival kit around to keep me feeling human and since working at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres I have added a few of our products to that survival kit, as well as having my eye on another which I think would be a really luxurious and sensible addition.

Raspberry Leaf Tea And Comfy Clothes

So firstly 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

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. Stretches do help and when I force myself I’m 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 will help us feel better?!

TV And A Love For Food

Anyway, the yoga mat also helps for comfortable seating 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, which is a lot more comforting than yoga, to be honest.

Use Essential Oils To Relax

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

Condoms Are In My Period Essentials Kit

Now 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’d honestly never be with a partner who couldn’t handle it, though I know not everyone feels the same. Most of the products I’ve added to my stash since working at Oh Zone help with making that easier.

My Go To Oral Stimulator Is The Satisfyer Pro 2

Firstly 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 at any rate, masturbation can generally help a lot and if you needn’t get your hands bloody it’s even better. Use a toy that can be easily cleaned and requires as little effort as possible I say!

Soft Tampons Are Great For Period Sex

Soft tampons are a little gem I had never heard of before working at Oh Zone. They are just a little sponge, hygienically wrapped, which can be inserted and used like a regular tampon. 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. Way more comfortable than using regular tampons. But the really super dooper thing about them is that you can wear soft tampons when you have penetrative sex. You generally can’t even feel them, and neither can your partner. 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 but soft tampons eliminate that problem.

Superslyde Is My Favourite Silicone Lubricant

Superslyde lubricant is also now in my emergency kit as a result. It’s also great for shower sex (another period-sex fave) because it is silicone and won’t all be washed away in the shower like a water based lube would be.  If you are into shower sex either during menstruation or at any other time, Sex In The Shower make some great products to make that 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

Earlier I mentioned massage, and I think it’s 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 babies as not only are they great for helping to achieve orgasm, they also do a pretty neat job of just massaging you anywhere else on the body you need to relax, which makes sense I guess 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 I also like to crank the tunes. Whether it’s something relaxing or something to scream along to and vent 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. Hollering 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!

And of course, 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 now have an even better suggestion – the really rooly truly awesome invention that is the heating vibrator. Think about it – this toy combines two of the most brilliant tools for relief of cramps – comforting, relaxing heat AND orgasms on demand. Can you really get any better than that? I don’t think so? Like, ok, maybe if it also dispensed ice cream, but somehow I don’t think that’s ever gonna happen. Although a girl can dream. 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 and 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 Vibrator Heating
Sex Toy: Pretty Love Crazy Hot Vibrator

Probably the most popular one 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.This toy heats to 45 degrees celsius, so you won’t burn yourself but just 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 for getting through your bleedy times, and don’t forget if you are experiencing any severe symptoms, visit your doc and tell them what’s going on.
