    hey, girls! just had a question i'd like to ask.

    are you very open about talking about your periods and cycles with other men? i;m asking this because for some reason, girls just love telling me about all that stuff, and even though this seems very immature but it makes me cringe. i nearly fainted when one of my friends talked about her "heavy flow." lol..

    Its not something i'd discuss with just random male friends but my long-term boyfriend knows my cycle just as well as i do, its not cos we chat about periods though. He just knows which week to either hide or be extra nice to me and that if i have knickers on in bed it's for a reason.

    This is a natural function of the Female body. Nothing more natural than that. Its also natural for them to talk about.

    I don't really wanna hear about it. Thankfully my gf doesn't wanna talk about it either. I don't think it's immaturity to be turned off sexually to it. Nothing more natural than going to the bathroom either, but I don't need to discuss the particulars with anybody esp not someone I see sexually. To each their own tho.

    I've always had some severe problems in this area but i've been modest about talking about it. My husband of 9 years doesnt mind hearing about it but i had my doc get rid of my periods 4 years ago with the pill. But i'm sure my husband hasnt minded not hearing about it.

    He is a manager and a very nice guy and he says his female employees seem to always spill the details to him. I think nicer guys open up that door inadvertantly. ;)

    TK, funny you should mention that. Some tribal communities have a mantra that a woman is evil because she can bleed that long and survive that their boys are taken to be raised strictly with the males until a certain age because, not even their mother can be trusted.

    It is pretty much common knowledge that some men would happily cut off their own ears before voluntarily listen to a woman talk about her period

    Taking this into account no i dont talk to men about it (partners yes) but i would probably have no problem talking to a guy about.

    i have to get to know someone first (if a male). my ex would always ask me questions because he was curious. he thought it was interesting, and even started reading more about females and the vagina. i thought it was cool that he wasn't grossed out by it. it's natural.

    i'm half native american, and we have our ways. when a girl gets her period for the first time, she has to stay in her room the entire time, her mother has to bring her food to her. she's basically locked in her room until it's gone. the only time she can come out is if she needs to use the restroom. it cannot be food that is cooked for the rest of the family. usually it's fast food, but there are others that decide to make home-cooked food, it just has to be made in separate dishes that no one else can use. males cannot take a bite of your food or drink out of your cup. when i have my period, it's considered "sick" or "contagious." when i have my period, i also can't participate in any sort of cultural events like pow-wows, feasts, funerals, and so forth. the part where the girl is locked in the room is ONLY the very first cycle. after that, she can be wherever she wants. but everything else still applies. if i'm not able to attend a cultlural event and people ask my family where i'm at, all they have to say is "she can't eat" and everybody knows what that means. or "she's muj" (she has her period).

    Nay-Nay and any other female of a background that treats menstruation as something bad, please do not take offense.

    IMO, these rituals show plainly the fear men have always had about women. In "pagan" times, before organized religion as we know it, that time of the month was celebrated.

    Of course it was celebrated because it is the reason we can bring forth life.

    But as male dominated religions began to coming to power, it was not only stopped, but turned completely around.

    In our society there is still a lot of shame heaped on a woman because of that natural cycle and...it pisses me off!

    I blame religion for everything ;)

    I've had a couple of boyfs who were squeamish. I only had to mention blood clot and they almost fainted. However another short term fling loved it. He even took a tampon out once with his teeth. I felt more squeamish about that than he did. :biggrin1:
