I went out of the city with my boyfriend last to last weekend. We were excited, it was Christmas weekend and we went to Shimla, it was snowing there.

However, a day before the trip, I got my periods. The moment I realized that I’m on my periods, I started panicking. I was afraid of losing out on all the Christmas action I was so looking forward to. Although my boyfriend tried his best to calm me but I was not able to calm down because for me sex was the one of the tempting factors.

I texted my friend, told her about my “ravaged sexual fantasies” and being a best friend that she is, she told me about period sex.

At first, I was reluctant but she somehow got me convinced.

I tried it, and this is my personal advice to all of you people, you must have period sex at least one time in life. Though, it is so addictive, you would want to have it everything a red drop appears.
