Sex During Pregnancy


Pregnancy itself is not almost never an obstacle for physical love. Nevertheless it must take into account that in the nine months of conception the dynamics of a couple's relationship may change up to cause a disruption of erotic communication that usually ends to create hitches and difficulties also to the communicative dimension in the most general sense. These trends are largely tied to worries, either by man or of the woman, who in many cases have no basis in the medical plan.


The separation of the reproductive function of sexuality to that of pleasure, of communication and of the game means that, for some couples, after he is aware of the pregnancy sexuality to pause for a long time. Another recurring motif in sexual behavior during pregnancy is fear, especially on the part of the father, that sexuality might harm the expectant mother and then to the fetus. It is good to know, in that regard, that the fetus is well cushioned and protected inside the amniotic sac and which is thoroughly isolated from a mucous plug.

In no case, the male organ can come into direct contact with the fetus during sex. Conversely, some researchers argue that the penetration, especially in the last phase of pregnancy, it may even have a positive effect on the cervix, which is also very robust and provided with a mucous plug impermeable to sperm. Then there are the physical changes that can impact both on interest in sex, both by the woman and man, that the sexual pleasure itself.

For women, then, there are some physical manifestations especially in the first trimester of pregnancy - strong hormonal changes, nausea, vomiting, increased volume, soreness of the breast - that alone enough to explain any sexual activity declines (but in some women can even accentuate the desire). It is good to know, then, that there are no particular contraindications to sex during pregnancy, except for a few cases listed below, and in fact the couple may even find that during this period, sexual intercourse can be more satisfying than ever. And if not, is useful for a couple make room for all those intimate events that allow you to maintain a level of even bodily communication that will be good prerequisite to the resumption of sexuality after giving birth.

In other words, the pair a channel of communication must always keep open the sexual relationship and try to satisfy in other ways their intimacy needs, for example by means of kisses, caresses, of "cuddling" and more generally in take care of each other. This will, among other things, to create even the unborn a climate of harmony in the couple of which will benefit to his coming to the world. Safety If a pregnancy is considered normal and safe, it can also be the practice of sex for the entire period of gestation of the child.

A safe pregnancy is one that sees the woman at low risk compared to an abortion or a premature birth, according to the opinion expressed by the gynecologist. The positive medical opinion, however, may not affect the torque compared to a sexuality lived in the manner and with the frequency with which it was practiced before conception. Sexual desire in women, in fact, may vary in stages of pregnancy, as well as her physical discomfort - compared to the increasing size of the body - may cause the partner away. And, again, the woman can soften and lose all sexual desire because it worried by the impending birth or too excited by the prospect of becoming a mother.

There are two types of sexual behavior that, in any case, should be avoided in any pregnancy:

practiced in oral sex from woman to man, man will have to be careful not to blow air into the vagina. The admission of air, in fact, could cause an embolism - that is, a block of blood circulation due to the formation of an air bubble - with consequences that may be life-threatening for both the mother and the child.

Never have sex with a partner whose sexual history is unknown and could be suffering from sexually transmitted diseases. If you get an infection, the disease can be easily transmitted to the baby, with potentially dangerous consequences.

The contractions that women may experience during and immediately after reaching orgasm are totally different in nature from the labor contractions. However, some doctors advise that women have sexual intercourse during the last weeks of pregnancy, as a preventive measure, since the sperm contains chemicals that can, even when present in very small doses, lead to premature labor. In case the doctor has forbidden sexual intercourse, in the presence of one of the reasons above mentioned, you can always resort to mutual masturbation, provided that this does not cause the most violent contractions in women than does the conventional intercourse.

The first trimester of pregnancy is one in which occur most often in cases of decreased sexual desire by the woman; the second quarter is that in which, generally, cease functional disorders (nausea, among other symptoms) and sexual desire grows considerably, in some cases causing more intense orgasms in women and frequent; for the third quarter there are no specific contraindications, except for the period immediately preceding the birth, if not related to sexual activity positions, which will have to be modified taking into account the growing footprint belly on which it is unwise to apply pressure.

Sexual intercourse during the nine months of pregnancy may have a positive effect in the torque menage, both psychologically and physically. Regarding the latter, it must be emphasized that sexual activity prepares the pelvic muscles for childbirth. On a psychological level, it strengthens the sense of intimacy and creates an atmosphere of relaxation and serenity in the imminence of a very challenging period as the birth and weaning. And more generally of the new responsibilities that entails becoming parents.


Sex and the City is an American television series originally broadcast by the channel HBO from 1998 to 2004. The series, created by Darren Star, already creator of Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place, is based on the novel by Candace Bushnell, one of the first works of the genre chick lit along with Bridget Jones's Diary, and had a great success and international attention.

Set in New York, the series tells the emotional and sexual lives of four friends, three of which around 35 and one, Samantha, around 40; often it comes to socially relevant topics such as the status of women in society and their role in the family. The first episode was broadcast in America on June 6 1998 , while the last 22 February 2004 from the network HBO and is currently revived in syndication on networks such as PBS, TBS and WGN.

In autumn 2007 work began for the film on the big screen, which was released in theaters on May 30, 2008. The success of the first film led to the production of a sequel, two years after the output of the first film.  In January 2013 the US channel The CW began airing of The Carrie Diaries, produced by Candace Bushnell and Amy B. Harris and based on the eponymous book of Bushnell which tells the teenage Carrie.

Carrie Bradshaw and her three best friends Miranda Hobbes, Charlotte York and Samantha Jones run through on the background of the island Manhattan their single life sexually active, at the turn of the new millennium. The show has become famous for the scenes in the chic bars, upscale restaurants and exclusive clubs, to the importance assigned to the fashion and for having openly showed sex scenes in a TV show.

The show is based in part on eponymous book signed by Candace Bushnell, in turn taken from her column in the New York Observer. Carrie Bradshaw is the alter-ego of the author that, for privacy reasons, has created a woman who held the same job and had his own initials, CB. The series quickly gained the appreciation of both the critics and the audience, impressed by a television product in which for the first time women talk about sex like men. The first season of the show is loosely based on the material provided from the directory of Bushnell, but from the second season onwards, the plot is completely original.

Each episode of the first season it foresaw a small montage of interviews that Carrie, alter ego of Bushnell, was supposed to do to fill his column for the newspaper which the show is the fictional newspaper New York Star. The gimmick was also repeated in the second season, only to be phased out. Another modified feature in the second season is a particular ploy narrative: if at the beginning there were times when Carrie was talking directly to viewers, commenting on what was happening in a still image, the seventh episode of the second season this expedient was abandoned. From that moment Carrie continued to comment on what happened to her and her friends, but only as a voice-over or through the preparation of its articles.

The first season was broadcast on HBO from June to August 1998; the second from June to October 1999 and the third from June to October 2000 . The fourth season was transmitted separately: first from June to August 2001, then from January to February 2002. The number five season, shorter due to a pregnancy of the actress who played Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), was passed in the summer of 2002, while the winds final episodes, which are the sixth season, were themselves divided in two parts: the first from June to September 2003, the second between January and February 2004 .

During his six seasons, Sex and the City was nominated for over fifty Emmy Awards , winning seven, and twenty-four Golden Globes , winning eight. The series tells the love life and friendship among four single women living and working in New York: Carrie, also the narrator, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha.

Miranda, a lawyer of success, falls in love with Steve, with whom he lives a love story full of ups and downs, caused by different lifestyles; the two get married at the end of the sixth season after having a child together.

Charlotte, the romantic of the group, is a dealer in search of great love; believed to find in Trey, successful doctor suffering from impotence, but the two are left because the man, after having solved its problems of impotence, reveals that she was not interested in having a child. So Charlotte marries her divorce lawyer, Harry, with whom he adopted a Chinese child.

Samantha, the character most transgressive, weaves numerous sentimental or exclusively sexual relations during the different seasons: fall in love with James, but it has a penis too small; He then puts a woman, Mary, but is too jealous of his former; gets engaged with hotel magnate Richard, but he betrays her. At the end of the series, after beating breast cancer (in this passage the authors were inspired by the story of the singer-songwriter Anastacia), establishes a stable relationship with Smith, actor much younger than her.

Carrie lives a romance with Mr. Big (of which you will know the real name, John, only in the last episode of the show), which continues during the various seasons even though the two are left several times for different reasons; over the years Carrie intertwines other reports, some more stable than others: one with Aidan, designers, that leaves because she is not ready for marriage, one with Jack, a writer who leaves her with a post-it, and one with Aleksandr, Russian artist. The latter convinces her to move to Paris, but Big joins her and brings her back with him to New York in the ' last episode of the series. The latter is just one of three final series that were filmed: in the other two Carrie came back to New York, but one with Petrovsky, the other alone, after leaving Big permanently.

Carrie, the alter-ego of Bushnell, is the protagonist and narrator of the book is both the show; but if the TV version focuses on four friends (Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha), while some others are glimpses into individual scenes or single episodes in the book instead of the three women have much less space (and sometimes even features different than those shown in the show), and attention is focused on other female characters.

Charlotte and Miranda are almost nonexistent in the book, while Samantha appears a bit 'more often. In the stories of Bushnell Miranda is a producer rather than a television ' lawyer , while Charlotte - US and puritanical in the show - is painted like a nympho English. Stanford Blatch, Carrie's friend, the book is a gay artist and has a lot more space than we have in the show, which is a talent scout .

The television series inspired by the book for the first season; the end of the novel, then, does not match that of the series, but at the end of the first season. From that moment the narrative history of the show continues independently from the book, introducing new characters and alternative developments.

Almost all of the events narrated in the series take place in the streets of New York, a city in eternal movement, chaotic and deeply alive, so that he was called the fifth star of the show. Manhattan, New York's heart, is the place where they live Carrie and her friends, always in search of the local hottest and most festive in the moment.

The protagonists, especially Carrie, nourish deep love and respect for the City, which is almost seen as a world apart, beyond which only proves loss as claimed by Laney, Carrie's friend who went to live outside city. Mr. Big instead, which left New York to go in Napa, California, outside of New York is the real world.

Often the episodes start with an overview of the city: New York in the spring, with trees of Central Park in bloom, New York in the winter, with the streets full of snow and the chilly people; or the streets of the city, filled with people (single, of course) who walk, men with briefcase in hand always and women with their 400 dollars shoes. The most fashionable are shown, so that some of these have drawn considerable publicity and have become even more popular after the airing of the episodes, the most famous museums and the most chaotic and crowded city, as the stock exchange and major roads, always crowded with cars and taxis, which the protagonists of the series used to move from one part of the city and who are in full activity even at dawn.

Carrie deeply loves New York, where he lived for ten years, and during the fifth season decides to get engaged with New York. The city, however, seems to turn against her: taxis do not stop, it's always raining and she feels more and more alone. But when, out of a party, feel his companion speak ill of the city, Carrie leaves him alone and he understands that, despite the flaws that, the city will be his partner even if he has not a next man.

After the attacks of 11 September 2001, the tribute that the series offers in New York is the title of the last episode of the fourth season: New York my soul (I Heart New York). This was also to be a scene in which Carrie should have been stopped by the police while trying to enter a station of metro, closed to the public for an alarm, but it never aired. Even the theme song is changed slightly: the name of Sarah Jessica Parker in fact no longer appears with the Twin Towers in the background, but with the Empire State Building .

The first episode of Sex and the City aired on HBO on June 6 1998 , achieving excellent ratings. The show soon became popular for the frankness of the dialogue of the four women and their relationship with sex (At last, the women talk about sex like men). Since the airing of the first episodes have emerged both enthusiastic comments (to the themes that were dealt with as per the scripts and witty dialogue), both heavily criticized especially addressed to the four protagonists, criticized as a symbol of women surface, self-centered and a little easy. Many fans of the show argue that Sex and the City is a realistic depiction of the way we live and the sex lives of many citizens of the big cities.

Over the years and with the passing of the seasons transmission has gained a wide audience, consisting not only of women, but also men, as witnessed by the excellent ratings of the end of the series, which aired on February 22, 2004 : the episode final was watched by over 11 million viewers. The series is named one of the 100 best TV shows of the magazine TIME in 2007.

The show has influenced, as conceded by its detractors, the way of talking and to show sex on television: After Sex and the City were many shows products in which much more explicitly about sex than it had been done in the productions previous. Also many subsequent shows have resumed the friendship theme for women (or men) singles struggling with dating and relationships, in some cases proposing the setting in the city of New York.

Starred in Men in trees , produced by the screenwriter of Sex and the City Jenny Bicks, is, like Carrie, a writer at the right man, while in Girlfriends and German Sex and more is repeated a similar group of four friends singles in Big Shots situations similar to those experienced by Carrie and her friends are experienced by a group of men.

Other shows recover some of the elements of Sex and the City placing them in show of another kind: Desperate Housewives, featuring a group of friends who live out of town has been called Sex and the Suburbs, while Grey's Anatomy was quoted as the fusion of ER and Sex and the City, presenting, within the context of a show hospital, the amorous and sexual relations among the leaders.

In the television season in 2008 also they debuted Cashmere Mafia on ABC, produced by the creator of Sex and the City, Darren Star and on NBC's Lipstick Jungle , based on the novel by the same author of Sex and the City. The first was deleted after the first season, the second was deleted after the second.

In April 2012 he made ​​his debut on the American channel HBO series Girls. The creator, Lena Dunham, said she was a fan of Sex and the City; she and her executive producer, Judd Apatow, explained that their show fills the time gap between Gossip Girl and Sex and the City. After the conclusion of the television series in 2004, came out two feature films that take up the title and the characters and continue the story of the four protagonists: Sex and the City was released in May 2008, and its sequel, Sex and the City 2, in May 2010. Both have been a commercial success.

As soon as the sixth season the cast especially Parker and the producers began to talk of a feature film that go on the events of the TV series, and this was already in production at the end of 2004 . Subsequently did not heard from again; The project was abandoned because of the refusal of Kim Cattrall to participate in the production: the actress did not accept the fact that Parker had a higher remuneration than the other three protagonists. On the contrary, the two actresses Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis is said to be happy to participate in any project. After a long series of announcements and denials, in early 2007 variety made ​​it known that all four actresses had signed a contract to participate in the film, it would be written and directed by Michael Patrick King.

The film received the American press criticism of any kind: has been called The best American films on women so far, and probably the best movie this year", but also a vulgar and superficial - and quite long - addition to a show that, over the years, has evolved and expanded in surprising ways. The film was described as" not necessary, as in the case of Simpson expanded to movies but also" a classic born movie, elegant, brilliant, shrewd, that does not forget the moral.

Overall, the film has grossed over $ 415 million: more than 152 million in America alone and more than 262 million total in the other countries where it was distributed, against a budget of $ 65 million.

Given the considerable success of the first film, the speculations on a possible follow-up, which was echoed statements by Kim Cattrall, who said The fans keep saying Yes I soon started, another. It was so much fun making the first movie, I hope they will do it again.

The filming of the sequel have started on September 2009 and continued until the end of the year, taking place mainly in New York. Part of the film was to be shot in Dubai , but have been denied permission to film in the emirate in the Arabian Gulf as a result of the script and the title of the film, so the scenes to Abu Dhabi were filmed in Morocco .

In interviews, Kim Cattrall has talked about the possibility of making a third film, but added that it's all in the hands of writer-director Michael Patrick King: "I do not know if there will be a sequel. I hope. I think there are still many stories to tell. According to rumors, the third film would have been shot, while the second, according to others, it could instead be a prequel, inspired by the new novel of Bushnell, The Carrie Diaries , which tells the Carrie's teenage years. These rumors have not been confirmed either by the plaintiffs or by the production company.

In an interview by Sarah Jessica Parker in Gioia 8 September 2011, the actress insisted that those on the third film are just baseless rumors and that currently there is no plan for another film in the series.

The production of the series was headed by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, former producers of Gossip Girl , as well as the same Bushnell and Amy B. Harris, former producer and scriptwriter of the original series.

The producers of the show have specified that being The Carrie Diaries, an adaptation of a novel disconnected from the television series, the series should not be considered as a direct prequel to Sex and the City , but an adaptation of the novel. In the series original example, Carrie's father abandoned her and her mother from small, and there is no reference to a younger sister.

There are also four caskets Sex and the City Essentials, each containing three episodes that are based on a common theme: The Best of Lust, The Best of Mr. Big, The Best of Romance and The Best of Breakups, distributed in the US alone. Were many CD products containing the songs that accompany the series, produced by different brands and labels, not all are official. Two of the albums Irma Records are considered the best because they contain songs that are hard to find elsewhere. The opening theme of the show is Douglas J. Cuomo.
