Major Issues with Pregnancy Sex

Problem: Having trouble orgasming or experiencing unintense orgasms. Although some women find there pregnancy makes them more sensitive and find it easier to orgasim, most have a harder time reaching orgasm due to the reduced blood flow in the pelvic region.

Solution: There's nothing like an intense vibrator-induced orgasm. This is how most sexually active women survive there pregnancy, a vibrator or a dildo. They produce much stronger and intense orgasims than conventional sex (especially when you're pregnant.)

Generally speaking, the safest sex toys to use during pregnancy are vibrators.
Even the most intense vibrator induced orgasm will not harm your baby in any way, and is completely healthy. Although there is no scientific evidence that vibrators are or are not bad for your baby, it's accepted within the scientific community that it's entirely safe.

Sex Toy Superstore has a wide variety of vibrators and dildos. As a pregnant women, you should look for something that has intense vibration due to the lack of blood flow in your pelvic region. You're not as sensitive, so more intensity is needed. Ofcourse, most of these vibrators have diffrent speed settings, so that you'll be very comfortable with the speed.

Problem: It's common for pregnant women to experience a lack of secretion due to hormonal changes, resulting in uncomfortable and even painful sex and/or masturbation.

Solution: Any personal lubricant will do the trick. I would recommend something organic, it's better for you and your partner, and safer for the baby.

Sex Positions During Pregnancy

I got this information from 500 Love Making Tips & Secrets by Michael Webb.

Generally, a good sex position should be:

1. Enjoyable for both partners.

2. Physically comfortable for both partners.

3. Little or no pressure on the uterus or pregnant belly

With that said, the following positions are very safe and are highly recommended during Pregnancy:

Woman on Top Position

This is a favorite among pregnant woman, because the woman can control the depth and movement, and no pressure is placed on the uterus or pregnant belly. This position is especially good during the second trimester, were you will have much more energy. Although during the first and third trimester, you may find that the fatigue is too overwhelming.

The Rear Entry Position

Most women find the added G-spot stimulation very enjoyable, although since the man is in control this could get uncomfortable for the women. Make sure you tell your partner if this position isn't comfortable for you. This position places no force on the uterus or pregnant belly.


Very comfortable and easy on the women, recommended for all trimesters.

The "edge of the bed" position.

The most comfortable position for the pregnant women, leaving absolutely no stress on the uterus or the baby. The women lays on the edge of the bed, and the man will either be on his knees or standing.
