View Full Version : Sex during period - Sponges - prostitutes etc

18-05-2002, 12:59 PM
I saw a late night programme recently about prostitutes and they said that they could not afford not to work during their period, so they were cutting up household sponges and were going to use them for something???? they were cutting them into tube shapes but the explanation was never forthcoming.

My boyfriend is returning from a long business trip (3 months) and it will be my very first (really light day) so I am looking for any way to get around this. He is not keen on going there when things are happening, and we have been unsuccessful with "rear entry".

So, anyone know what this sponge method is and how to do it.

Stay safe.

Give him a blow job. If you want to do more, give him a great meal and two blow jobs. No man could ask for more.

There is nothing unsafe about having sex whilst on your period, messy perhaps but still safe 9provided you use a condom).

You might mention to your bf the old addage that goes "Only the best sailors sail the Red Sea".

If he is adamant not to go against the flow then of course go with oral for the time being. Good luck!

thats all very well but she might fancy a shag herself, she didnt mention that she only wanted to pleasure him and not get anything herself

are you on the pill?? if you are then starting the next pack immediatly after finishing the last pack rather than leaving a weeks break, will often let you miss that period.
if not, then depending on how light your period will be, maybe he wont mind, or you could get away with not telling him youve come on, and hope he doesnt notice. my husband doesnt generally go for sex when im on, but a few times if its the first day then we have and he hasnt noticed, or if he has then he hasnt said anything.

that sponge thing is a trick that hookers use to still be able to have sex on their period without the client seeing any blood as the sponge soaks it up. However, i wouldnt recommend doing that because its really dangerous. My friends mum was telling me about a prostitute coming in to her hospital last friday because the sponge had become stuck <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> , so dont even try that

Quite right.

However, there are very serious safety risks in inserting non-sterile items into the vagina to trap menstrual blood.

Women have died before now through simply leaving in a regular tampon for far too long.

Imagine inserting a sponge so small that he won't notice it, and then imagine not being able to get it out, and being scared to go to the doctors out of embarrassment...

Stay safe.

If you can get TSS from leaving a tampon in for too long what is a sponge going to do.

To be quite honest i can't see it being very comfortable and like said before if it gets stuck <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="redface.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

just a thought.
the contraceptive cap can be used to trap menstrual blood for a short while. its not true about it being dangerous to put non sterile things into the vagina, theres no such thing as a sterile penis unless it has just been dipped in bleach or scalded! also tampons are not sterile. i dont know about household sponges but i wouldnt! there is actually such a thing as a contraceptive sponge which you put spermicidal jelly on and insert it into your vagina. i imagine its not very absorbant after being smothered in jelly though. i would ask your doctor about being fitted for a contraceptive cap maybe

Thanks for all your replies, I was just curious as to whether they left the sponge in or just soaked it up and took it out.

And, yes, I am gagging for it, but I suppose another week is not the end of the world, except that I am always more horny during my period anyway <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> I am not on the pill, we only use condoms for contraception so I can't keep taking them.

Anyway it was just an enquiry about the sponge method.

Thanks again

i bet you anything, if hes been away for 3 months, hes not going to be bothered by you being on the first day of your period.

isn't it so annoying when you realise your period's due at a time when you're likely to really not want it! <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

<IMG SRC="redface.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> you seem to want this alot. so i say if you really are a horny little devil do it in the shower that way it wont mess up the sheets. and if he wont do that, put on a tmpon and ask for a bit of oral loving. he cant really complain about that because if its in the shower it will just wash off him and if you use a tampon the blood still wont touch him. so everyone is happy <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
