I have spent the last week or so pondering whether to post this image or not. It is not the first image of menstrual blood I will have posted, you can find all the others listed HERE, but this one is probably the most graphic.
Whilst Sir has been away I have been instructed to have one orgasm a day. I have to say it has not been a very fulfilling experience but I think that has been due to my moods which have not been ones that lend themselves to sexy self pleasure. A mixture of anger and sadness all mashed up with a topping of missing him doesn’t make for great masturbation moods. Nevertheless I am not going to pass up an orgasm and so I have pressed on, excuse the pun.
Last week I had my period. I was actually working on some completely different images when I felt the wetness pooling between my thighs and as is so often the case I couldn’t help but dip my fingers in and explore. I like the heat and the sticky slick feeling on my fingers when I have my period and I find that my pussy is much more sensitive at this time of the month . Of course the camera was right there and so I stood and pressed the trigger over and over as I played. In the end the camera was forgotten as my orgasm washed over me and my task for the day was done and then it was off to the shower to the clean up, feeling somewhat less sad and angry, with a dollop of missing him, as described above.
Later that day when I moved the images from my camera to computer I found all the rest that I had taken before this moment where disappointing and were consigned to the ‘learning curve of photography’ file, in other words the trash can, apart from this one. Which left me pondering whether I should share it or not. I think it is rather beautiful in a gory kind of way and it certainly captures a moment but is it a moment for sharing?
I asked Twitter and I got back a number of responses but it was this one from @Wholesexlife that stood out for me
“I think it’s important to share non-standard sexual images. So many different things can be sexy. Menstrual blood gives us a way to explore some of our darker taboos. It’s hot because it’s a little scary.”
And I thought you know what? She is dead right and not only that but it challenges the concept that menstrual blood is in some way dirty or shameful. I am a woman and I believe that in many respects there is nothing more womanly than this. It is not dirty, or shameful, it’s natural and normal. It might not be to everyone’s taste but it is real and honest and it happens. I have never been one to shy away from tricky subjects on my blog and I believe that some of what I do here is challenging to both me and you, the reader, but that doesn’t mean we should shy away from that challenge. It is part of who I am and what my body does and I am happy with that. Just because I have my period does not mean I suddenly become any less sexy or sexual in fact for me it is quite the opposite. It is all part of being a woman, it is all part of being me.
