I must admit, before my son was born, I bought into the idea that my sex life after having a baby would...well, it just wouldn't. I worried my desire and ability to get down would cease to exist once I became a mother. Even as my due date neared, I was afraid that I would never have the hot, passionate sex I once had. You know, the kind of sex that gave me the baby in the first place. Thankfully, I and many others like myself, were mistaken in this belief ("baseless fear" would be a more accurate way to describe it) that the arrival of a baby meant the departure of a killer sex life. Sure, things have changed and yes, having an active, hot sex life requires more work and effort and conscious thought when you have a child as opposed to when you didn't, but having a baby has also made the sex I'm having even hotter than it was before.
No, this is not me lying to myself to make myself feel better about how having a child has ravaged my existence and eradicated all fun. It's true: My sex life is off the charts now. Now that I have a little kid in the house, if my partner and I want to get down, we have to sneak and hurry and be quiet and sometimes do it on the kitchen counter in the middle of the day and you know what? That's super hot.
So, if you're about to have a baby, thinking about having a baby, or just had a baby and you're completely convinced your vagina will never be a source of pleasure and fulfillment ever again, just take a look at a few of the reasons why having sex after baby — and especially when baby is sleeping — is possibly the most incredible sex you've ever had.
