11 Totally Normal Things That Happen During Pregnant Sex ... And After

When you're expecting, you likely spend a lot of time thinking about the baby -- and what will happen after he or she arrives. There are strollers to buy! Prenatal vitamins to pop! Birth plans to devise! But sex -- the having of it (or not) during pregnancy and beyond -- is one of those things that's trickier to prepare for.

And let's face it ... things change. Body parts go wonky; emotions go haywire -- and that's all before sleep deprivation kicks in. Even the most sexually confident woman might wonder: This thing that's happening here, is that normal? And there's not much guidance. "A lot of couples have a lot of questions about sex," agreed Dr. Lauren Streicher, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University and author of the forthcoming Love Sex Again. "And doctors aren't bringing it up."

Which is why Streicher and several other notables in the sexual health arena agreed to share a few of the very common things that happen during pregnant sex and sex after childbirth. What's on your list?

1. You Might Be Really Horny ...

During the second trimester, many women experience a surge of hormones (including testosterone), which can significantly boost their sex drive, said Rose Hartzell, a certified sex therapist with San Diego Sexual Medicine. (Add in the overwhelming relief that accompanies the end of morning sickness.) At the same time, it's not uncommon for a woman's partner to report being particularly turned on by her body -- namely, her growing breasts -- said Streicher. And that could lead to an overall boost in couple-wide randiness, if you will.

"I find that there are usually two camps: women who find that they have heightened sexuality during pregnancy, and those who feel just completely asexual," said Streicher. Hartzell agreed, saying that media outlets tend to oversell the horny story and under-report the "um, no thanks" response to pregnant sex, leaving some women feeling inadequate when it comes to their sexual appetites. But both are totally common reactions to pregnancy, the experts say, as are serious libidinal fluctuations throughout.

3. Your Breasts Might Leak.

"If your partner is handling your breasts and nipples, sometimes that's going to cause a little bit of fluid to come out, which can kind of freak people out if they're not expecting it," said Streicher. It typically begins in the second trimester, she explained, adding that it can be difficult for a woman's partner to adjust to the idea that her breasts are not simply there for sexual pleasure. And the potential freak-out quotient can have not-so-great consequences for a couples' sexual satisfaction. "A lot of women really depend on breast stimulation to get aroused, so when someone is backing off on that, it can have an impact on their pleasure," Streicher said.

4. You Might Have Really Intense Orgasms ...

"Orgasms can be more pleasurable during pregnancy," explained Stephanie Buehler, a psychologist and sex therapist who runs The Buehler Institute. "There is increased blood flow to the genitals. Also, the pregnant woman produces more of certain hormones, like oxytocin, that can make orgasms especially intense." And evidence suggests that the oxytocin (the so-called love hormone) can cross the placental barrier to your baby, Hartzell said. Good news for you and your baby!

5. ... And Be Forced To Think Outside Of The Box.

As pregnancy progresses and women's bodies change, many once beloved sexual positions are no longer comfortable ... or even feasible. "A lot of parents realize that their typical sex positions are going to have to change, but until it happens, I don't think they realize what a big transition it is," said Hartzell. Think of it as a good time to get creative and experiment with different positions (side-by-side is often a good option), props or other means of giving and receiving sexual pleasure, such as oral sex, massages or just plain kissing, she said.

1. You Might Do Non-Intercourse Stuff First.

A 2012 study that looked at mothers' desire postpartum found that women tended to perform oral sex on their partners or masturbate before they were ready to have intercourse or receive oral sex themselves. Indeed, roughly 40 percent of women reported they masturbated within the first few weeks of having a baby. By the end of the first three months, 85 percent said they'd started having intercourse again, but Streicher said data suggests that many women don't totally enjoy it right away. Thus, the "you're good to go after six weeks" advice that most doctors give to couples after a vaginal birth or C-section simply isn't realistic -- or all that helpful, she said.

2. You Could Feel 'Touched Out.'

This phenomenon can certainly happen to both partners, but Buehler said it's particularly common for women to report feeling "touched out" after caring for a newborn. "Cuddling, breastfeeding, rocking and even changing the baby take a lot of hands-on care," she said. Buehler advised that taking a break for a solo cup of tea or bath can help make whichever partner is feeling kind of "meh" about contact feel more receptive to their partner's touch.

"I'd say the number one thing women don't expect is vaginal dryness," said Streicher, adding that it may cause pain during sexual activity. The dryness, she explained, results from a lack of estrogen, particularly among women who breastfeed. A good lubricant can help, but if the dryness persists, Streicher suggests talking to your health care provider about your options.

4. ... But Also Have Leakage Issues.

Another change for which Streicher believes women are woefully unprepared is the incontinence that can occur after childbirth. "It's not unusual at all ... and women also tend to have a loss of urine with sexual activity," she said. "Most women haven't been told about it, and they don't know if it will go away." For many women, urine leakage (during sex or otherwise) does indeed go away on its own, usually within a matter of weeks or months, she said; for others, pelvic floor physical therapy may be necessary, or they might benefit from using an at-home kegel exerciser device.

5. Partners Might Experience Changes, Too.

It seems just a tad obvious, but studies are only just beginning to show that having a child affects partners' sexual desire, as well. An August study that focused on heterosexual couples in committed relationships found that men also experience highs and lows in terms of sexual desire, post-baby (and lows were often a result of the usual suspects: fatigue, stress and lack of time). Hartzell put it simply: "It's going to be different than it was before the baby arrives."

6. The Negative Stuff Won't Last Forever.

Which is not to imply that all new mothers or partners experience a dip in post-childbirth sexual desire or activity -- they don't. And a recent study suggests that any potential issues aren't long-lasting. Researchers with the University of California San Francisco found that two years after childbirth, there was no notable link between having a baby and subsequent low desire, sub-monthly sexual activity or low overall sexual satisfaction.

In other words, this too shall pass.

Twitter's Vine Includes Pornographic Content

Twitter's Vine, an app that allows you to create six-second videos, launched late last week to much excitement. Within hours, thousands of people on Twitter were tweeting short videos. Vinepeek, a new site that lets you watch streams of so-called Vines from around the world, even sprang up.

But some of those short videos began to include pornography.

Over the weekend technology websites, including Business Insider, The Verge and TechCrunch reported that a search for "#porn" in the new app brought up many videos with hardcore porn.

Vine says that users can report this content and the video will be covered with a warning message. "Users can report videos as inappropriate within the product if they believe the content to be sensitive or inappropriate (e.g. nudity, violence, or medical procedures)," Twitter said in a statement to ABC News. "Videos that have been reported as inappropriate have a warning message that a viewer must click through before viewing the video."

Twitter and Vine said they will only remove the video if it violates its guidelines. "Uploaded videos that are reported and determined to violate our guidelines will be removed from the site, and the user account that posted the video may be terminated," Twitter said. Vine's Terms of Service does not explicitly say anything about pornography or nudity. A search by ABC News for #porn within the app brought up at least 10 pornographic clips, many of which were not covered up by the warning message.

To make matters worse, this morning a pornographic video containing images of oral sex was marked as an "Editor's Choice" in the Vine app. Twitter apologized in a statement: "A human error resulted in a video with adult content becoming one of the videos in Editor's Picks, and upon realizing this mistake we removed the video immediately. We apologize to our users for the error."

Users noticed the misplaced and pornographic video. Many tweeted about the issue and one user complained in a review in Apple's App Store: "If my kids got a hold of this I would be so mad. There is no way to block users or make sure unwanted videos stay off."

The review brings up issues surrounding the app's presence in Apple's App Store. Apple has long limited apps with pornography. Just last week it pulled the 500px photo-sharing app because of complaints about nudity.

"The app was removed from the App Store for featuring pornographic images and material, a clear violation of our guidelines," Apple's Tom Neumayr said in a statement to ABC News last week. "We also received customer complaints about possible child pornography. We've asked the developer to put safeguards in place to prevent pornographic images and material in their app."

Vine, however, has been one of the top apps in the App Store since it was released last week, receiving Apple's Editor's Choice award. It is rated 12+, for teenagers or older, with a warning of "infrequent/mild sexual content or nudity." 500px was able to resubmit its app after putting stricter filtering settings in place and adjusting the rating of the app.

Apple declined to comment about Vine.

All About Eva Angelina

Born March 14, 1985, Eva Angelina has publicly said many times that she came from a "very wealthy" background, until she was around 13 years old and her family "pretty much lost everything". Three months after Eva Angelina turned 18, she entered the world of porn in 2003. Eva Angelina has said that she was so excited to get into the adult industry, she started making her own pornos at home when she was only 13 years old.

Famous for wearing glasses during most of her sex scenes, the five foot, three inch bisexual is rarely seen promoting her films without them on. Eva Angelina has starred in no fewer than 223 adult movies, which include genres like bondage, interracial, group sex, anal sex and double penetration (the latter two only recently, in the 2007 film Upload and the 2008 films E for Eva and Big Wet Asses 12).

Between May and November of 2004, Eva Angelina quit the porn business at the request of her boyfriend at the time. Instead, she went to work as a waitress at a Macaroni Grill in Valencia, California. On November 7th of that year, tragedy struck Eva Angelina. Her boyfriend (the one she quit porn for) committed suicide. Shortly thereafter, Eva Angelina made her triumphant return to porn (after briefly considering joining the US Navy).

Eva Angelina has won many awards for her work in the porn industry, including two F.A.M.E. awards in 2008, two AVN awards in 2008 and several others for Best Actress, Female Performer of the Year and more. Although widely regarded as a Latina, Eva Angelina actually has rather diverse blood running through her veins, including Cuban, Chinese, Irish and English.

At the beginning of the June of 2008, XFANZ reported that Eva Angelina is pregnant. For awhile the rumors had been circulating, but nobody made an official announcement about the situation until was able to wrangle an exclusive comment through her publicist. On June 8, 2008, Eva Angelinas publicist said "she has a name, it is Sylvie, and it happened at a good time, because she needed a break to focus on her personal life. But, she is looking forward to coming back to the industry a year from now and stronger than ever."

So, Eva Angelina fans should not fear. Although she is on a hiatus to have her baby, she is definitely coming back!

How to Block a Website

By Ben L. Matthews

If you are a bustyinescudna parent who is trying to gain parental control over what your young children or teenagers are able to see or what they are able to search for, then you definitely need to know how to block a website. Here are a few ways that you can either limit, and even control your child's ability to access certain places on the internet.

1. Browser Security Controls

All of the internet browsers that you may use will have options to block certain sites if you go to the tools section of the browsing program. Some, like Firefox will require that you download an add-on which can easily be done by going to Firefox's site. Here are some easy directions:

Internet Explorer

Open Internet Explorer.

On the top bar select Tools.

Go down to Internet Options.

Then find the Privacy tab.

Look for Sites.

Type in the address of the site you wish to block and then press OK

Google Chrome

Open Google Chrome.

Look for the wrench symbol in the upper corner.

Click Tools.

Select the Under the Hood tab.

Find Change Proxy Settings.

Next, click Security, and then Restricted Sites.

You will have to double click on Sites and then you will be able to type in the site you want block.


While in Firefox, click on Tools.

Then select Add-ons.

Click Get Add-ons.

Select Browse All Add-ons.

Enter Block Site for your search and you will be able to download the add-on.

Once you have the add-on you will be given instructions on how to block sites.

2. The Hosts File

You can tell any browser you use to redirect its search of a particular site back to a dead end on your computer by altering the Hosts file. What you are basically doing is instructing your computer to look for the unwanted website in a place where it does not exist. Here is how to block a site using the hosts file:

Click your Start button, then All Programs, then Accessories, and then to Command Prompt.

You will see a black DOS window.

Type notepad C:/Windows/System 32/drivers/etc/hosts and press enter.

Look for the line

Right under this line, type the address that you want to block with in front of it.

This method is effective but just like with browser tools, you will need to add the sites one at a time.

3. Content Blocking Software

The most effective and reliable way to block a website is to find good content blocking software. These programs will show you how to prevent a wide range of sites from being searched for or even stumbled upon by your kids. Many are able to quickly update from a growing list URL addresses so you don't have to worry about figuring out which to block. The more sophisticated filters will be able to scan actual page content and prevent access even to sites that are not on the banned URL list. The first two methods are free, but it will be worth both your time and money to purchase a trustworthy program to protect your family from adult content.

Author's Bio: 

I am a father of three and I want to help other parents protect their children and families from the dangers of internet pornography. Now that you have looked at three methods on how to block a website, I urge you to take a closer look at one of the best porn blocker programs I have ever seen. You can find out more by going to

Naughty America Introduces VR Technology: A Game-Changer for Adult Entertainment Industry

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Naughty America, one of the largest US producers of adult video and the

industry's leading technology innovator, introduces the kind of virtual

reality (VR) that Americans want most: the adult kind -- at the Consumer

Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas January 6-9, 2016.

"VR scenes are extremely immersing and provide an intimate experience

like nothing else can. You feel like you're really there, in the room,

almost as though you could touch the performers," says Ian Paul, Naughty

America's CIO. "Customers want to get as close to reality as they can

without reality getting in the way. That's where technologies like 4K

and now VR become so important. VR and adult content make a perfect


Having already made thousands of its fantasies available in mobile and

4K Ultra HD formats, Naughty America has led the way again, by releasing

its original titles in VR to industry acclaim.

Naughty America's VR content is formatted for 180-degree stereoscopic

head tracking using a VR headset. Viewers are immersed directly into the

scene, elevating the experience to a completely new level.

From the first introduction of VCR tapes through to today's ubiquitous

online desktop, mobile viewing and 4K, the adult industry has not only

been among the earliest adopters of new technology, it has helped shape

the technology itself. Naughty America, working closely with its

customers and technology developers plays a significant role in how the

industry develops.

VR has a relatively small market share today - about 1-2% of the overall

market for adult content - although, even a small percentage of the $8 -

$10 billion adult video industry is significant. But, the adult VR

market is on a high growth trajectory. Naughty America predicts that by

the end of 2016, 10-20 million people will view adult VR content at

least once a month.

Naughty America is offering a $5 sign up promotion to CES attendees that

can be accessed through its homepage.

"The entire history of porn has been trying by whatever means available

to arrive at this type of experience, and now it's here. This is a huge

leap forward," adds Paul.
