This Is What Porn Stars Do When They Have To Film A Scene On Their Period

Because admit it, you're curious.

Tampons

For most gals, (unless you’re one one of the lucky few who work at this company) having your period doesn’t warrant a day off work, and that’s true for porn stars too.

But while most of us can sit at our desks without our co-workers knowing that Aunty Flo is in town we’d imagine that for porn stars having your period at work is, er, much more difficult to hide.

So what do the ladies of adult film do when they’ve got to film a shoot during their lady flow?

Porn star Stoya has revealed all to Revelist.

If you can’t reschedule the shoot “You would theoretically wear a tampon if you were just only going to do butt sex,” Stoya explains. “But if you don’t feel up to doing an only anal scene, or you’re not getting paid enough for it, or you don’t do those for some reason, then you’re going to have to get sort of complicated.”

The fix when anal isn’t an option? The girls use a combo of douching and sponges to period-prep before a big scene.

Stoya explains, “So you get a sponge — but you don’t get a makeup sponge. You get a sea sponge.”

“So you put a boiled sponge in there,” she continues. “But first you get the bottle of douche and you dump that out, because … you need to rinse the blood out first. So you dump out what’s in the douche bottle, you rinse it out in the sink … then you take freezing fucking cold ice water, dump it into the douche bottle”.

Then you’re pretty much good to go.

“Shove the sponge in, run to set, and then you go for as long as you can,” says Stoya. “Eventually more blood than the sponge can soak up happens, and then you have to cut [the scene] because you can’t show that.

“You really haven’t lived until you’ve been squatting on the toilet seat in some shitty location bathroom, bathing your cervix in ice water,” Stoya laughs. 

And there was us thinking that sneaking a tampon into the bathroom at work was difficult!
