The churning, and out-of-bounds, topic of period sex is still surprisingly fraught.
A few of years ago, having a sexual kink was something of a taboo. It was considered at best quirky, and at worst, weird and downright subversive.
Certainly not the sort of thing you'd mention readily, even among friends. Case in point. Blood Hounds, if you really need me to explain, are not dogs.
They're guys who are into having sex with women on their periods. That's sexual expediency.
That's just good old, normal period sex. So this has officially been announced as a fetish albeit a highly individualistic one and we're all invited to partake although, I can't imagine that after reading about it, thousands of women around the world gingerly removed their tampons, before spending 20 minutes mentally debating whether putting a towel on their White Company Sheets. There's a problem, though.
Blood Hounds, we're told, are 'real men'. Basically, a fetish for period sex isn't for wimps. Menstruation is, well, gross. It can irreparably damage your upholstery.
It is made of a substance that causes people to faint on sight. Thus, menstrual sex is an advanced maneuver, available only to men and women with seasoned sexual palates and hangup-free psyches.
Want to really prove what giant cojones you have? She also disagrees with the assertion that, as a woman, getting a guy to go down on your during your period is a mark of sexual empowerment.
Fox is quick to point out that period sex as a fetish is a thing: called menophilia. So are guys going to start going for it? Not the ones I spoke to. Both men and women are constantly being told to up our game, make sure we hold the right opinions, live the right kind of life, and have the right kind of sex.
See the distinction? Sexy - apparently.
