Their findings concluded that after eight weeks, most couples resume vaginal intercourse, but pre-pregnancy frequency does not occur on average until closer to 12 weeks post-childbirth. Even so, plenty of women are nowhere near ready to have sex after a few short months. Some of the most obvious reasons sex after birth is impacted include decreased libido , soreness, and body image issues. Decreased sex drive may be hormonal but it can also have a lot to do with partner communication. Here, we spoke with six women about how their sex lives changed—for worse or better—after giving birth. I found it really hard to enjoy sex or climax because I was basically anxious all the time. Weirdly though, physically , I could orgasm a lot easier than before I had a baby; if I could get in the right frame of mind, I could actually reach orgasm much faster than I used to. This is my 4th living little one, my first and only with my partner. My previous relationships were very abusive and that definitely affected recovery including my sex life.

Takeaway: Pregnancy and lactation are beautiful and sacred. They are also sexually desirable for many people. I often write about fetishes from a first-hand point of view. I have a kink for both pregnancy and lactation. They both make me feel horny, protective, warm, loving and excited. I remember seeing a woman at a Grateful Dead show in
Pregnancy fetishism also known as maiesiophilia or maieusophoria is a context where pregnancy is seen by individuals or cultures as an erotic phenomenon. There are no particular or preferred elements within maiesiophilia that are common to all maiesiophiliacs. Some may pursue fantasies that are concerned with the circumstances in which a subject may give birth, or to the conditions to which the pregnant subject may find themselves acting upon, such as approaches to mobility, sleeping, and dressing. Particular areas and processes of the body that change during pregnancy may also become the focus of psychological investment, but nudity or sexual activity is not always essential, and in some cases actual pregnancy is not necessary to invoke arousal. In these cases, the appearance of an enlarged abdomen caused by obesity or overeating may be sufficient, or simply the suggestion of a protruding navel. The naked appearance of actress Demi Moore in the advanced stage of pregnancy on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in marked the beginning of a period which has since seen pregnancy presented by celebrities as a glamorous state of living, while also creating a market for photographers to produce images of pregnant mothers, and for fashion stylists to introduce "pregnancy styling" to their business. Impregnation fantasies are characterized by the arousal or gratification from the possibility, consequences, or risk of impregnation through unprotected vaginal sex. Impregnation fantasies are often indulged by reading erotic literature and role playing with a partner. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Pregnant women often say they get a lot of smiles. But, of course, it does happen. The pregnant form has been worshipped by societies for millennia, be it via fertility goddesses or simply treating women who are expecting with the adoration often reserved for kings and queens. But that was mainly due to the fact that women can carry and deliver children, and thus prolong the bloodline. What is it that drives such fervent fetishization of pregnant women in society today? In a study that was later published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine , a team of researchers found that early exposure to pregnancy and lactation can lead to an adult interest in pregnant women down the line. Older siblings, researchers found, are more likely to develop this kind of attraction than those who never witnessed the birth of a baby brother or sister. In his book Modern Sexuality , Aaron explains that testosterone has been shown to influence a predisposition to fetishistic interests, which is why members of the pregnancy fetish community appear to be overwhelmingly male. Men may be more likely to fetishize a round belly, or larger breasts heavy with milk.
