Hi. I'm Kristen. Not Krissy. Or Kris. There's a difference. After having kids, I left life as a college music professor and became a writer, sex book author, and host of the CafeMom Studios' show Coffee Shop Confessions.
Can we all just agree that men are big babies? And I'm not just talking about how they act when they're sick -- the "man cold," if you will. I'm talking about how they act in the bedroom when we have our periods.
I can't tell you how many times I've had guys ask me to do some crazy, weird stuff between the sheets, only to have them freak out when they find out my monthly "friend" is paying a visit.
Look, I get that some women don't feel comfortable having sex when they have their period. That feels different somehow. But if you're okay with it, shouldn't your partner be too?
Here's why men really need to man up when it comes to period sex.
I have had a number of various haircuts in my life, and even though I have pretty good hair (it's thick and wavy and generally easy to style), I tend to be like most people in that once I leave the salon, it never looks like that ever again.
Well, that is, unless I'm willing to buy lots of hair care products and spend way too much time blowing it dry. And even then, it still doesn't look like it did when I got up from that chair.
That's all changed since I found the most awesome hairstylist who just so happens to charge $150 a cut. But let me tell you, it's worth every single penny.
I've dated a bunch of guys over the last year as a newly single mom and inevitably the conversation gets to sex. And as a sex columnist and writer, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to get insight into what men think is the biggest turn-off in the bedroom.
Well. Let me just say that not only were the answers pretty much consistent across the board, the turn-off was something that I would never have thought would have made the list in a thousand years.
But worst of all, a lot of women do it. Including you.
