Masturbation/masturbating on period

Question
I have gotten into the habit of masterbating lately and I was wondering if it is OK for me to masterbate on my period?

Answer
Yes, it is more than OK.  Not only is masturbating normal, healthy, and fun, but many females find that doing it when they have their period relieves menstrual cramps.  You should enjoy it.  There is nothing at all wrong with masturbating when you are menstruating.
