I don't know how the women on this board may feel about this topic, but I think it is about time I man up and begin a discussion about it. Should we men encourage or participate in sex with our better halves, girlfriends, lovers if they are menstrauting? I hear it is suppose to help with cramps and therefore help the female deal with her problems but at the same time the female can be very agitated during this time. This usually make moi want to run and hide from her than take abuse from her. Also, I hear of the good thing for her--but is there anything bad about sex during menstraution? Could I use such an argument when in truth I don't want to get beaten up by her. Or is doing that lame and shoulid I man up. What is your opinion about this? Should I man up and try to initiate sex when I find out, or running and hiding for a couple of days acceptable? i really want to keep my girlfriend happy, but at times she scares me.
