Being a new parent is amazing. It's also stressful and frustrating and exhausting and challenging and confusing and, well, you get the idea. Taking care of a tiny human is no joke, and gives new meaning to the phrase,"It takes a village to raise a child." If you're like most parents, you probably don't have a village at your disposal, which means that, even if you do have help, you don't have as much as you would like. That, coupled with every other taxing aspect of parenthood, adds to the many things getting in the way of every mother's orgasm; orgasms that, honestly, a mother needs. When you've hit maximum capacity and you're stressed and you're trying to find neutral and connect with your partner or partners or just another human being who doesn't wear a diaper, orgasms can be so, oh-so helpful. Like, they can be exactly what the doctor ordered.
It's hard to decide what to do if you've been gifted with a precious few minutes of either alone time, or time with a partner or potential partner. Should you nap? Clean the house? Do the laundry? Sit in silence and bask in the precious moments that are not being needed by a child? Or, should you use that time to rekindle the physical connection you once cherished with your partner(s), or spend a little quality time with yourself? Remember that thing you used to do all the time before the weight of life's responsibilities brought you down? That thing that you loved to do anywhere, at any time? That thing that made that little human that you adore so much? Remember sex?
Becoming a parent shouldn't mean the end of a person's sexuality. Sure, you've got a kid that needs you every hour of every day, but what about your needs? Shouldn't your needs have an opening in your busy schedule? Of course they should. You should be allowed to have some alone time with your partner; you should be allowed to drink wine and feel sexy and desired; you should be allowed to find some time to pleasure yourself if the mood strikes; simply put, you should be allowed to get busy in the bedroom (or any other room)! Part of your post-baby life should be post-baby sex.
Go! Do it! Be free and feel sexy! Go forth and get it on to your heart's content. Just be prepared to conquer a long line of obstacles en route to your orgasm because, well, there are some things that stand in every mother's way when she's trying to climax.
