Dear Daddy: My boyfriend is a normal red-blooded man and wants sex all the time.
I don’t mind at all and I take it as a compliment – except when it’s the time of the month.
I told him I wasn’t interested at all when I had my period, but he kept trying to get me to try it. I am 25 and he is 27 years old.
I told him I wanted to be alone because I was bleeding profusely and had a bad period of pain but he would not let me go.
Last week I gave up because I wanted him to stop moving but it wasn’t comfortable and I didn’t enjoy it.
I find the whole thing really embarrassing and I’m not sure why, but when I’m menstruating I feel very private about my body.
Now he says, like I did it once, I have to overcome it and get ready for it again.

Daddy says: There is no medical reason why you should not have sex during your period, but for some people it is very dirty to think so.
Also, no one should do anything sexually they are not 100% comfortable.
Tell your boyfriend once again that you are not interested in sex when you have a period and he needs to respect your wishes.
