Many women feel more aroused leading up to and during their periods so if that's the case with you, don't be afraid to have sex. That's one reason I started my business, Venus Matters. I was amazed that there was nothing beautiful on the market for just these occasions (and many more). After all, towels are not failsafe plus I had heavy flows—and I hate trying to scrub blood stains out of sheets in the middle of the night. That's why I launched a business to truly honor the needs of women in bed (www.VenusMatters.com). With our absorbent, waterproof and washable Venus Mats you'll never worry about the sheets again. We think they're the prettiest bed mats in the world! Plus, they're great for young girls who first get their periods (no one wants to sleep on plastic mattress covers, ugh). Thanks for helping dispel the taboos around women's biology, Michele!
