Sex positions to try during pregnancy

 

Many couples have mixed perceptions about having sex during pregnancy. While some don’t think of being pregnant as a hindrance to their sex life, others simply avoid the risk.

This is what clinical sexologist Kat Van Kirk, Ph.D has to say, “Continuing to have sex during pregnancy is important for not only the ongoing intimacy and bonding that it creates for both partners, but it allows for the release of oxytocin, which is a hormone that bonds partners through physical touch.”

On the couch

How to: Your man can sit on a sturdy arm chair and you slowly sit down onto his penis (after your vagina is lubricated) with your back facing him and your hands on the arm of the chair. He can hold your waist or caress your breasts during the act.

This position will be helpful because you can take control of the depth and speed of the penetration.
