Just because it’s that time of the month, doesn’t mean the Magic Banana® needs to stay in the bed-side drawer. In fact, it might be a better time than ever to break out your favorite yellow and black exploration companion.
As Dr. Laura Berman says on her blog – “sex while you are menstruating can help ease the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, or PMS. Many women say that orgasms can ease their cramps and the orgasmic contractions of the uterus offer a soothing internal massage. Also, orgasms release endorphins, natural painkillers and mood enhancers, which can help soothe the cramps, headaches, mild depression, and irritability sometimes associated with periods. Many women enjoy sex more when they are menstruating because of increased feelings of fullness in the pelvic and genital areas, which offer a head start on arousal.”
One great alternative during menstruation is to use the Magic Banana® in shower, to eleviate any concerns over mess. Using the shower head to apply a relaxing steam of water outside, while massaging yourself inside with the loop of the Magic Banana® can be a fantastic combination to relieve the tension of cramps.
Beyond self-pleasuring, the Magic Banana® is a great tool for foreplay any day – but during your period, when you and your partner might be less excited by the idea of oral sex, the Magic Banana® can be a great way to warm up together. I love an intense snogging session accompanied by a little Magic Banana® – whether it is controlled by me or by my partner.
I feel that I need to be thorough in mentioning that it is quite likely that the Magic Banana® will emerge accompanied by some menstrual ‘stuff’. Nothing unusual of course – the typical body stuff that you find on a pad or tampon mid-period. The Magic Banana® is a bit of a scoop ultimately – so it’s really handy at grabbing any loose material in there. It’s also not unusual for some stray tampon fluff and the like to be harvested when using the Magic Banana® – which can only be a good thing, I reckon.
Any other discoveries, tips or tricks that you’ve found while using the Magic Banana® on (or close to the time of) your period?
