Many people have questions about sex and how it relates to a woman’s period, including her menstrual cramps (not all women have bothersome menstrual cramps, but many do). Recently at Kinsey Confidential, we received this question from a listener:

You can listen to our response on our Kinsey Confidential podcast, created in partnership with WFIU at Indiana University and National Public Radio (NPR).
