Question for guys or gals: if a your female partner were in class on her period and you got some menstrual blood on you, what would your reaction be? Example: would you feel really grossed out, feel neutral about it, feel bad for her, etc.
Question for women: if you have breast tenderness during your period, how have you dealt with this in class? Example: does wearing two bras help? Do you not feel the pain in class? I've not really experienced much breast tenderness in the past 5 years, so I don't feel qualified to comment on it.
I'm writing a resource article about women's periods in BJJ, since it's a topic that does get brought up, and there's not really a single article collecting all the information.
Please note that I WILL be linking to this forum post, so if you'd rather PM me privately, that would be very cool. I'd rather have real feedback rather than a totally politically correct answer. However, please use words rather than emoticons.
UPDATE! Here's the link: http://jiujiubjj.com/2013/02/26/women-and-bjj-periods/
I know for me, if a woman bled on me it would be no different than if a dude smashed his upper lip on his gums and bled on me - but I would discreetly let her know so that she could clean herself up.
