Birth Erotica

Hi everyone,
Many of you know that geocities mercilessly deleted my Birth Erotica page due to its sexual content. Since I am not allowed to put it on someone else's page and then link to it, I am leaving geocities all together. I will have a new URL soon. In the meantime, I am giving everyone their own personal copy! Feel free to forward this to anyone and everyone.

I had finally become able to make my vagina wet and loose by fantasizing about making love to my husband, so while I labored, I graphically visualized having sex....I remember very clearly the intense pleasure of feeling my baby's body move downward inside me. The spreading apart of my muscles and bones and the joy of voluntarily allowing my body to do its work was both arousing and exhilarating....I found it amazingly satisfying to pinch my clitoris to relieve the burning sensation while I savored the soft, wet, slightly furry head of the emerging new person pressing on my eager fingers.
-Laurie Morgan

This birth was not only painless, but very pleasurable. We had never read about this aspect, and it took us by surprise. As the baby crowned, I knew from Jean's look and sounds that she was having an explosive orgasm, which rolled on and on. What a long way from the pain and agony of conventional myth! Years later we asked a sympathetic doctor about this. "Yes," he said, "I've seen it a few times. It may even be that many women have orgasms during birth, but interpret them as pain because the sensations are more intense than anything previously experienced and because women are conditioned to expect pain."
I had been told to expect a "dogging pain," but was unprepared for the sensation of sexual ecstasy, the voluptuous feeling of penetration ....Crouched on my knees on the little afghan, I caught the infant who rushed from my vagina into the small world between my legs, in the midst of an extraordinary orgasm from the inside out.
-From "They Don't Call it a Peak Experience for Nothing," by Ruth Claire (MOTHERING, Fall 1989)
I feel the baby come down. The sensation is ecstatic. I had prepared somewhat for this being as painful as my last delivery had been. Yet this time the pulse of birth feels wonderful! I am building up to the birth climax after nine months of pleasurable foreplay. With one push the babe is in the canal. THE NEXT PUSH BRINGS HIM DOWN, DOWN INTO THAT SPACE JUST BEFORE ORGASM WHEN WE WOMEN KNOW HOW GOD MUST HAVE FELT CREATING THIS PLANET....HE COMES, AS DO I.
-From PRENATAL YOGA AND NATURAL BIRTH, by Jeannine Parvati Baker
Labor for me was a total turn-on. Yes, there was pain - a lot of pain, and the most effective relief for it was stimulation of my clitoris. Larry rubbed my breasts and my clitoris and kissed me deeply and passionately for hours until the baby came. And when he had to go out of the room, I masturbated myself until he came back. I had lots of orgasms. They seemed to flow with the contractions. Even when I was pushing I wanted clitoral stimulation. It was the sexiest birth ever! And I loved every minute of it. I was completely alive and alove - turned on in every cell of my body. I felt that the totality of Larry and me - the fullness of everything we were individually and together - was giving birth to our child.
It was ecstatic, wonderful, thrilling. I heard myself moaning - in triumph, not in pain! There was no pain whatsoever, only a primitive and sexual elation....With the most spiraling, fascinating thrill of all, I felt my baby slither out. I wanted to shout with joy.
I had the most sought-after midwife in France - my competent and funny aunt Marie-Therese, whose radical idea it was that childbirth above all should feel sexy. I listened to nothing but gospel music during my pregnancy, a music quite new to me, and to France, and "It's a High Way to Heaven" ("...nothing can walk up there, but the pure in heart...") was playing on the stereo during the birth; the warmth of the singers' voices a perfect accompaniment to the lively fire in the fireplace. My vulva oiled and massaged to keep my hips open and my vagina fluid, I was orgasmic at the end. Petit Pierre practically slid into the world at the height of my amazement, smiling serenely even before he opened his eyes.
-From POSSESSING THE SECRET OF JOY, a novel by Alice Walker
Pushing was absolutely incredible. It felt SO good. I loved the sensation of my daughter's head popping out; and her body coming out was incredible. I made roaring sounds. KT later asked me if I was in a lot of pain and I said I felt no pain at all. I was reaching down into the depths of my being - I felt like I was reaching back through time eternal, into the Great Mother herself - and using my power to push her out. The sounds were sounds of power. And I felt awesomely empowered. It was I could say the best feeling I have ever had. Primal force of life coursing through me. Power of Woman, Power of Birth, Power of Carolyn! If I can do that, I can do anything I set my mind to. The sensation of my daughter's body sliding out of my vagina was orgasmic. I still shudder when I think of how pleasurable that was.

A woman in California was giving birth at home in a portable birth tub and feeling very sexy and loving with her partner. Each time she had a contraction she would cry out, "Oh, baby, I love it. More...more!" Her windows were open because it was July, and soon a crowd gathered outside her home. When the baby was born amidst shouts of "Yes!!! Yes!!! Oh, my God, yes!!!" her neighbors gave her a great round of applause. They only realized that it was a birth after they heard the cries of a baby.
-From GENTLE BIRTH CHOICES, by Barbara Harper, R.N.
It was the ultimate climax. I felt open, loose and free. Words cannot explain the feeling as my baby's body slithered out. To this day I can still sense that wonderful feeling inside. It makes me tingle.
-Allison Scimeca
As long as I was alone and able to yield to the sexual joy of the birthing, I was able to experience wonderful orgasmic feelings and no pain at all.
-From THE NEW NATIVITY, edited by Marilyn Moran
I started pushing while Michael supported me as I squatted. Immediately, after one vigorous push I felt Damian coming down. A tremendous excitement filled the kitchen and Michael and I seemed to merge as our eyes met. It was as if we had become one again as we did in a genital embrace. Yes, we were one. It was not just I who was having the baby. Michael was as well. The moment had become ecstatic. Sensations of every kind and color coursed through me. I was one, one with everything....And with that I shouted in sheer delight as I felt Damian coming....out he shot, into the safety of Michael's confident hands.
-From HAPPY BIRTH DAYS, by Marilyn Moran
My contractions were five minutes apart and extremely pleasurable. They reminded me of that "opening" feeling that accompanies an orgasm....feelings of sexual pleasure surrounded me and I felt the desire to create climaxes, with clitoral stimulation, to accompany the inner rhythmic orgasms produced by my baby's gentle touch.
-Hygeia Halfmoon
I began having beautiful, rushing contractions that started low, built up to a peak, and then left me floating about two feet off the bed. Michael was lying beside me and going through the rushes too. I saw that I could breathe very deep and fast and rush higher with the contraction. The contraction would carry me and I would breathe harder and harder and then we would peak - it would slip off and leave us floating. It felt wonderful, and we were having a beautiful time. As the contractions got stronger, it felt like I was making love to the rushes and I could wiggle my body and push into them and it was really fine.
-From SPIRITUAL MIDWIFERY, by Ina May Gaskin
There would be no war if every man received his son onto this planet in this way and had known his wife in this act of ecstasy.
