If you are worried because you think that having sex with a menstrual cup is the same as having sex with a pad or a tampon…Forget about it! 



Is it possible to have sex with a menstrual cup on?


If you are thinking about buying a Eureka! Cup you might be asking yourself if you can have sex with it on. Before answering this question it is indispensable to firstly define sex.

Sex is something beyond penetration. It is a diversity of practices that range from self-eroticization as a couple, eroticization or masturbation to the couple, cunnilingus, black kiss, anal sex, etc. So, can you have sex with a menstrual cup? 


What if the menstrual cup stays in there?


Generally speaking, any practice – except intercourse or penetration – is welcomed during menstruation. As long as it is agreed by each of the members. In other words, if the sexual practice is primarily focused on the path to pleasure – beyond intercourse – sex will be an incredible experience with or without a menstrual cup.

Now, in the case of intercourse or penetration, it is important to be aware that the penis could push the menstrual cup towards the cervix and cause: 1. Intense pain or 2. Blockage of the menstrual cup between the vaginal walls. Therefore it is recommended that in the case of practicing intercourse, you better remove the menstrual cup and focus your attention on pleasure.

Alternatives for intercourse during menstruation


The menstrual cup is not designed for practicing intercourse. However, groups of researchers and technological designers have developed a healthy and pleasant alternative. Menstrual discs. These devices allow intercourse while keeping menstrual blood within the disc itself. The reason why it works is that the disc is placed behind the pubic bone and behind the cervix – while the menstrual cup is placed in the vaginal canal, below the cervix.

With knowledge of that, now we just need to enjoy sex without shame of our naked and menstruating body.
