Aghhhh I love the sound of this!
This writing inspires me to share some stories… I have one, in particular, that sounds a bit like this quote.
An ex-lover told me when I asked him if he minded that I was bleeding, that “men who are scared of period-sex don’t know what they’re missing out on—women are at their most sensitive during those days”— and my heart melted a little…
Also, if you haven’t seen Ali Wong’s stand up-piece on period sex, it’s gold! After she tells her lover that she’s on her period, his reaction is: “Well, then let’s make a fucking mess Ali” and she goes onto say: “Till this day that is the most romantic thing anybody has ever said to me.”
There’s really so much truth in that—and what you are saying as well—about being wanted in every way, and on every day of the month, blood or no blood. This kind of uninhibited acceptance is both super hot and powerful—and romantic!
