Posts Tagged ‘pregnant body image’
I’ve been somewhat overwhelmed by the number of articles that I have found online about pregnancy and body image. I find myself turned off to these articles when I see them because most of them have messaging like, “don’t worry your body will return to normal” or “it’s okay to eat more now that you are pregnant”. I get it, there is a lot of pressure out there for women to stay skinny and the pregnant body is far from that. But this kind of messaging creates the image that a pregnant body is not a sexy body. I must beg to differ.
I have never felt sexier than I do not that I’m pregnant. From watching my belly grow bigger and bigger to the cleavage that I never thought possible. Here is my list of the top 10 ways that I’ve enjoyed my sexy body during pregnancy:
1. Maximize the cleavage. I’ve never had huge boobs and now that I have them I totally want to flaunt them. It’s probably because they are only temporary so I feel the need to enjoy them while they last. But whatever the reason, it certainly makes me feel sexy to push up the boobage a little bit to get the most out of what I’ve got. Read the full post »
What do pregnant ladies and new moms have in common when it comes to sex? They aren’t getting enough good information!
Well at Babeland we love to talk about sex, and lucky us, we get to do that all day every day. We also love the hot mamas and mamas to be and we want them to be having as much (or as little) sex as they want to and getting the most out of it. We are teaching 2 classes in Seattle at Birth and Beyond next week (August 11th) one especially for the pregnant ladies (Sex During and After Pregnancy) and one for the new mama’s (Sex, Desire, and Reconnecting ).
The pregnancy class will answer all those pesky questions like:
- Will I hurt the baby? (No).
- What positions can I possibly get into? (Lots).
- Am I a pervert because of my dreams? (No).
- Will having sex or orgasms cause me to go into labor early? (It depends) Read the full post »
In Seattle, we have recently paired up with Bootyland (up the block from Babeland) for our Sexy Moms classes. We have taught a couple of classes for moms with older kids, but our upcoming class here in Seattle on November 30th is specifically for the pregnant moms and the moms with newborns (and partners of course).
When I wrote about the last class we had, I mentioned the lack of info online about how to keep your mojo while preggo. Well, there are definitely no classes for pregnant women wanting to find out the details about how their sex lives will change with pregnancy and parenthood.
Hey, I’m happy to be the resident expert on the subject! I love teaching about sex, I’m pregnant, plus I have now gotten to talk to LOTS of pregnant women and new moms about their sex lives too.
This class will cover 2 really important topics:
1. Everyone is different.
2. Communication techniques Read the full post »
This weekend at the Seattle Store we are teaching a Sex During Pregnancy and Parenthood class. We even have guest teacher Nekole Shapiro from Tantric Birth joining our resident Sex Educator mom Shannon and myself.
Being newly pregnant (18 weeks) and a sex educator, my interest in learning all about sex during pregnancy has definitely increased. Though I taught the Sexy Moms class a few times before I was pregnant, things are now personal. At first it seemed that there wasn’t much information out there on having sex during pregnancy other than: Read the full post »
