Sexuality and Pregnancy
Childbirth is far from being a fun part of you will tell most young moms. Yet some of them say they have felt a sense of enjoyment. Can one have an orgasm during childbirth? We conducted the investigation-
For ordinary mortals, childbirth is above all synonymous with pain in which the refrain of the Queen of the Snows delivered and liberated its place. Indeed, there are few young mothers to keep a sweet memory of contractions or work. But for some, childbirth would provide a certain orgasm.
A phenomenon revealed in 2013 when publication of the study of clinical psychologist and sexologist, in the scientific journal Sexology. The specialist sent a questionnaire to 956 midwives to obtain their opinion on the subject. The study included a sample of 206,000 assisted or attended deliveries. Result: In 868 cases, the midwife thought with certainty to witness a manifestation of physical pleasure during the confinement, without being confirmed by a confidence of the parturient. In short, 3 out of 1000 women would experience an orgasm, also called obstetric jouissance, during childbirth.
In the United States, Debra Pascal-Bonaro has even devoted a documentary on this subject under the title “Orgasmic birth” in which 7 women give their experiences, supplemented by the testimonies of specialists
Pleasure and childbirth: a taboo subject.
Supporting figures, young mothers assuming spontaneously their feelings are extremely rare: 0.3% of deliveries. There are a few cases, but it is not commonly expressed because, according to general opinion, it is not normal to feel pleasure at the moment when you become a mother. In our society we distinguish erotic functions of the maternal functions. Women concerned are uncomfortable when the subject is addressed. The phenomenon does indeed exist which does not fail to elicit reactions among future mothers, who do not conceive that it is possible to feel a certain pleasure at that moment.
A phenomenon is more delicate to evoke that the main concerned with themselves is having difficulty in expressing clearly their feelings: animal drive, well-being, sense of enjoyment.
Orgasm during childbirth: why, how?
Few studies have examined the subject and it is difficult to determine the exact causes of orgasm during childbirth. Among the possible reasons, one can consider purely physical explanations. Knowing that the roots of the clitoris enclose the entrance of the vagina, it is probable that the clitoral zone is stimulated during the expulsion of the baby. Another track is oxytocin, also called “hormone of love” (secreted during sexual intercourse) would also be produced by some women during childbirth.
The orgasm would mostly be felt during natural deliveries. The epidural can anesthetize feelings, that is why many women reproach it. A factor confirmed by the study of Thierry Postel. Out of the nine direct testimonies of mothers, obstetric pleasure was experienced seven times without anesthesia and twice under ineffective epidural anesthesia. An unpredictable pleasure that would drop, on average, the score of 8.3 out of 10.
