When people say period sex, all that comes to mind is blood-stained bed sheets and a bloody penis. Sure, the bed gets a little messy and the penis is definitely dripping blood. But, honestly, if sex isn't a little messy, are you even having crazy sex?

A little ding-dong on your periods is not going to hurt you or your partner. Plus, what about all the health benefits that come along with it? You ladies deserve a little kinky time when you're in pain.

So here are some benefits that'll encourage you to bone, periods or no periods. Trust me, it's worth it!

1. Cramps bugging you? Endorphins to the rescue!

Having sex and achieving an orgasm does wonders for your nasty cramps. When you climax, endorphins like dopamine and oxytocin get released and that takes care of your pain just like a painkiller would. Only, more naturally.

Ain't that worth some downtime?

2. Want some relief from the incessant pain? Period sex is the answer.

Girl, you know how difficult periods can be. From backaches to legs that hurt, those 5 days are a pain-fest. And not the good kind.

So, why don't you do yourself a favour and have some sex? Tell your partner about how it can alleviate your pain and I'm sure they'll be more than happy to pleasure you a little.

3. Chances are, you'll achieve a better, long-lasting orgasm.

Who wouldn't want that, right? Just before and during your periods, your genital area is a little swollen. This, in turn, makes your libido go into overdrive getting you super horny. Imagine having the best orgasm of your life! Oh, sweet angels!

4. No need for lubrication either.

Well, do I even need to elaborate on this? If your vagina is really dry sometimes, you should not be wasting this opportunity. Having sex on your periods has its perks and the best one is that you don't even have to try to get wet or use saliva and other forms of lubrication.

5. Your periods might become lighter.

When a woman orgasms, her uterus contracts. More the uterine contractions, more blood and tissue get expelled from the body. Hence, giving you a lighter and in some cases, even a shorter period.

So, what's the lesson here? More orgasms = Lighter, pain-free, shorter periods.

6. Better sleep, anyone?

With all that pain and discomfort, and the nagging thought of staining the bed sheet in the back of your head, it can get quite difficult to get sound sleep on your periods. However, the endorphins released during the big O can help you de-stress and prep you up for the soundest sleep you've ever had.

With so many benefits, how can you just waste those 5 days without an orgasm, ladies?

The next time you're on your periods, get some action. And if you can't, well, there are always other ways to get to heaven.
