It’s one of life’s many cruelties that periods also come with heightened sex drive. If you’re not inclined to throw in the towel for a week, you can always throw one down, or even slide into the shower. But that does tend to dampen the mood somewhat. Thankfully, there’s now another option.
A Californian start-up has created Flex, a disposable disc-shaped device that allows for mess-free period sex. Inserted just in front of the cervix, it serves as a silicone barrier that temporarily halts your flow.

One of the founders of The Flex Company, Erika Jensen, told The Huffington Post that she hopes the product will help couples be more open about menstruation.
“And for those of us who were already comfortable having period sex (including [co-founder] Lauren and me)," she said. "Flex saves our white sheets and allows us to enjoy the moment more.”
