yoma 6

comparing contact with a corpse and sex with a niddah...

but for the woman herself, it's as different as night & day

(comparing the impurity of a man who has sex with a niddah, and the impurity of contact with a corpse... yes, well.... they have the same length of time of impurity, can immerse during the day. but for a niddah, or a woman who has just given birth, they have to wait until night before immersing.

it's a bit of a tricky and problematic comparison....)
