How to Feel Sexy on Your Period
For some women, the last thing on their minds during their period is wanting to feel sensuous. We feel fatigued, crampy, and bloated—definitely not a recipe for feeling sexy! However, if you’re looking for a way to spice things up on your period and feel yo’ self, here are some tips to help you get in the mood.
Amp Up the Self-Care
When you’re not feeling great, indulging in some extra self-care practices is the perfect way to help you feel better. Whether that’s doing a facemask, taking a bath, or just changing your sheets, whatever self-care looks like for you, taking these extra steps on your period can make you feel like your best self!
Nothing sets the mood like soothing, sensual scents. Essential oils are not only a great natural remedy for menstrual cramps and fatigue, but their scents can help activate your senses, helping the serotonin flow. We recommend peppermint or lavender to get you feeling sexy.
Indulge in Sexy Period Panties
Who says you can only wear your worst granny panties while menstruating? If wearing a cute matching lingerie set makes you feel like your sexiest self, treat yourself to a pair you can feel good about wearing on your period.
Try Period Sex
It’s no secret that our hormones go crazy while we’re menstruating. That’s why it’s really common to feel turned on before and during your period! Whether you’re getting sexy with a partner or alone, any kind of sex on your cycle can be just what you’re looking for to feel sexy. Check out these tips for great period sex!
Open Up About It
Communication is key! If you’re struggling to feel sexy on your period, talk to your partner about how you’re feeling. If your partner isn’t as onboard with period sex as you are, find other ways you can make each other feel good while on your period! Be direct about what you want and find a compromise if needed.
It’s important to remember that you don’t need a partner in order to want to feel sexy on your period! Feeling sexy is for you and another way of showing self-love. Alternatively, if you want to just curl up on the couch with a hot water bottle on your period, go for it. Do whatever feels right for you. We hope that no matter what, that these tips helped in some way!
