The benefits are not only awesome, but incredibly yummy. It is a natural cramp easer and dissolver, an organic mood elevator, and brings a woman and her partners into a new intimacy with her body and her flow. It makes me sad and sometimes angry that people so often have a closed mind to it, thanks to centuries of negative propaganda concerning menstruation and women's sexuality in general. It is wayyy past time for a change.
There are many studies that show that a woman's sexual response is heightened in particular ways during this time. The sexologist Alfred Kinsey determined through his research that women's clitoral response is heightened during our menses, and
Mary Jane Sherfey in her book 'The Nature and Evolution of Female Sexuality' states that women have the potential for an "inordinately high drive and orgasmic capacity" during our menstrual cycle. And if that isn't a ruby to grab every month, I don't even know!
The wild woman, the woman's inner Lilith, comes roaring out, demanding pleasure and satisfaction on her own terms. The Red Queen! I know this has always been the case for me.
The Holy Red Roar of a Red Queen! Yes indeed!
So often, this red lusty roar is repressed- and the implications of that are multifaceted. I truly believe so much of PMS is linked to menstrual repression of every form.
When we have the beauty and power of our wild feminine denied, that is the "curse".
Not our holy flow- but the fear-fed bullshit of that misogynistic propaganda, which has resulted in an abundance of menstrual taboos and female oppression
in patriarchal politico-religious history.
Don't let them fool you.
It's just straight up oppression from a mindset straight out of the Dark Ages.
A mindset responsible for the witch hunts.
A mindset that tells us our bloods are disgusting, dirty, shameful.
A mindset hellbent on the subjegation of sexual women,
while it revels in the exploitation of female sexuality in epic proportion.
There is serious mana, potent power, from menstrual sex.
There is deep healing potential from menstrual sex.
There is fierce pleasure and intimate connection from menstrual sex.
Menstrual sex is a radical reclamation of joy and self-love!
I highly encourage you to Rock your Holy Red Roar, Red Queen!
Grab that ruby!
