Today I realized something that I didn’t consider when I started modeling. The whole reason I started doing this was to supplement my income enough to pay my bills. But what do I do when I have my period? Do I take a week off of modeling? I can’t really afford to do that. Do I try to find clients that are into a blood bath? Somehow I don’t think there are very many of them, and trying to find them would take time away from modeling. Or do I find a way to make it seem like I’m not on my period?
This is a challenge. First, I always have a horrible acne breakout around the time I start menstruating. Second, there’s the associated bloating, cramping, and exhaustion. And finally, of course, the technical difficulty of concealing all the blood. There’s foundation for the acne and supplements for the rest, but my solution for the blood is to wear a cup. For those not familiar, there are these little rubber cups for women that sit up inside the vagina. I’ve been wearing one during my period for several months because I think it’s more convenient and it’s better for the environment than pads and tampons. So I thought to myself, why not just keep the cup in and proceed as if nothing has changed?
This worked very well at first. As long as all anyone asked was that I strip or rub my clit, everything was fine. Then I was asked to do penetration with one of my toys. I thought maybe if I was careful I could make it seem like I was going deep, but keep from dislodging my cup. The client was insistent that I go deeper, so I tried, and that’s when I had what I referred to as a “wardrobe malfunction”. Blood everywhere.
So I’m still trying to find a good solution to this problem. Maybe I should revisit the idea of trying to find clients that are into that kind of thing.
