I know Iâ€™ve posted on orgasmic birth before, and since the last post had some nice length and girth to it, Iâ€™ll keep this one short and sweet.
InÂ America, as in most of the western world, we medicalize birth, meaning as soon as a woman is admitted to the hospital to give birth, sheâ€™s put in a wheelchair. This treatment helps further the idea that pregnancy is all about being helpless and feeling pain and fear. But there are advocates of pleasure-based, heck, even orgasm-inducing birth, and as the orgasmic birth movement rages on so does their latest book.
Orgasmic Birth: Your Guide to a Safe, Satisfying, and Pleasurable Birth Experience which (like the film), reminds everyone that women can actually experience pleasure in giving birth. Especially when “Anecdotal studies suggest that 30% of women experience [orgasms], or sensual pleasure, during labor and delivery.” So, even if a woman doesnâ€™t orgasm during birth, why not give it a try? The worst that can happen is you donâ€™t come.
Yeah, letâ€™s here it for the big O!
