Things can get really messy.

(Readersdigest)

Self-stimulation can be a nice way to get in touch with your body. The feeling is totally amazing and it can help you realize what you like and don’t like when it comes to other sexy time activities.

However, some people might find that they’re more aroused during their periods. It might originally seem a bit indecent, but you do not need to hold off masturbating until your period is done. People have period sex and masturbating when your period is in town really isn’t that different.

But before you reach down there, have a look at 5 things to know before masturbating on your period.

1. Fingering will feel very different

If it's part of your normal masturbation routine and you still want to try it, make sure that you're being hygienic and washing your hands before and after. To keep things clean, you might elect to use a condom on your finger. If you go bare, prepare for the mess and for things to feel different.

2. It can get really messy

Blood can get everywhere including the sheets, the mattress, your clothes, your hands. It can also get in all sorts of cracks you didn't even know to exist. Knowing this beforehand can hopefully help you make adjustments to make the situation more enjoyable and less messy.

3. You might find it better not to use your hands

You can try dry humping your pillow with your clothes on or you could use something like the shower head. Just remember that you don't want to be sticking random objects down there. Things should be clean. If you go with the shower head option, remember you shouldn't aim it up your vag.

4. Location can make a huge difference

If you do like your bed, you will probably find it more helpful to put down some towels so if you leak, you can wash those rather than having to redo your entire bed. Some people prefer the bath or shower because any dripping blood goes down the drain.

5. You might find it easier to leave your underwear on

If you wear pads and/or you want to avoid getting blood everywhere, rubbing yourself with your panties on could be an option. You could do it over top of your underwear or you could just reach down there and stimulate your clitoris.
