Okay, so if you feel like you have a ridiculous amount of money to burn, you may want to drop some of it on the new Thinx Period Sex Blanket. It comes in at a staggering $369 USD.
That’s certainly far more than I’m willing to spend on a blanket that I can use to have sex on during my period. My guess is that you might feel the same.
So, let’s talk alternatives to the Thinx Period Sex Blanket. In a happy twist, all of them are way, way cheaper. Let’s get to it, so you can get it on.
#1: An Old Towel, or Two
Let’s start with the cheapest option of them all to the Thinx period sex blanket, old towels. Yes, don’t overlook them.
They are not only free, but they’re comfortable and easy to clean. Plus, they’re generally quite effective at keeping the fluids off the bed sheets. If you have a particularly heavy period, consider using two or three of them.
Quick tip: dark ones might work best if you don’t want them to get all stained.
#2: Plush Blood Splatter Blanket
If you’re going to have a dedicated period sex blanket, why not make it a blood splatter one. It’s easy to deal with too…just machine wash and dry. For rest results, you’ll want to throw it in the wash immediately after using it, before the fresh blood splatter dries.
The blanket is warm, fuzzy and light in weight. In short, it’s exactly what you need for some comfortable period sex, and then cuddles afterward.
The best thing? It’s around 7x cheaper than the Thinx period sex blanket.
If you’re not happy with it, you can return it to the company for a full refund with no questions asked. How’s that for customer service?
You can check it out for yourself over on Amazon:
Peapods are designed to protect your mattress against bedwetting or incontinence. Why not add period sex to that list? A fluid is a fluid is a fluid. These things are soft, comfortable and easy to clean.
The size is ideal at 3×5, and most people will be able to make that work. It’s not so big that it’s unwieldy or takes up your entire washing machine, but it’s big enough to cover a good area.
The second best thing? The price. It comes in around 6x cheaper than the Thinx period sex blanket.
Check the reviews…people use these for a whole bunch of things. Kids who wet the bed. Cats who like to pee on beds. Post-swimming in the car. Etc., etc. The sky is the limit and who wouldn’t want to have at least one of these things hanging around the house?

#4: Soft Tampons
The next cheaper alternative to the Thinx period sex blanket are Soft Tampons. They’re kind of like regular tampons, except they have no string. They do have a pull tab on them to make removal a wee bit easier.

#5: The Ziggy Cup
If you’re looking for a reusable period sex option, then you’ll LOVE this new menstrual cup, the Ziggy Cup. It’s a flat, flexible disc that fits right below your cervix.
It’s made from the same material as most other menstrual cups (medical grade silicone) so can last for at least a couple of years.

#6: Soft Cups
The final option you might want to consider instead of the Thinx period sex blanket are Soft Cups. They’re similar to the Ziggy Cup in that they’re flat, flexible discs that are designed to fit below your cervix.
Unlike the Ziggy Cup, they’re disposable. But, for $369? You could buy boxes, and boxes, and boxes of them. Probably enough to last an entire lifetime.
