I loved being pregnant! I felt sexy and sensual, busty and beautiful. And every time I gazed upon my expanding belly I was reminded of that glorious act of love that had led to my baby’s conception.
Strangely enough, however, pregnant women are often looked upon as asexual. Maternity clothes are generally designed to hide a woman’s figure, rather than accentuate it. Tops are more apt to have Peter Pan collars than swooping necklines. Although the very fact that a woman is pregnant means that she has had sex, society tends to view her as anything but sexual. It’s as if she is suddenly expected to stop being a lover and start being a mother – and a virginal one at that.
The problem with this line of thinking is that first of all, it’s no fun, and secondly, it’s unhealthy both physically and psychologically. Having sex and feeling sexual are crucial to a woman’s sense of well-being. Pregnant women need to know and be told how beautiful they are – because, in truth, they are. Pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding are integral parts of a woman’s sex life. Accepting this fact will make all of them more pleasurable. Here are some quotes about the sensuality of pregnancy.
