When is it safe to have sex after giving birth?
You should wait until any bleeding after the birth (lochia) has stopped, which should be by about three weeks after your baby's birth. This is because the wound left in your uterus (womb) by the placenta coming out is still healing. If you have sex before the bleeding has stopped, you may get an infection.
When will I feel like having sex after the birth?
Everyone is different. There's no norm, or set time, when you should aim to have sex by. The most important thing is to wait until you are physically and emotionally ready.
A small number of couples start having sex within the first month after the birth, but about half wait until at least six weeks, as do most women who have had a tear or episiotomy. By three months, most couples have tried sex again, though some couples prefer to wait until after six months.

So you want to ‘Have IT All’ correct?! You could suppose that accomplishing that fete or at least coming close to it, involves a balance of all aspects of yourself, from the professional, spiritual, social, personal and then you have the VERY personal level. Now despite what you may think, this article won’t be as raunchy as you think. Apart from the more ummmm (searching for a word) risqué sex swings, are you aware of very simple and seemingly normal pieces of furniture that can help to improve your sex life?
This article will introduce you to the world of Sex Furniture and will also help you to take baby steps through a variety of simple techniques or options that you may unknowingly already have access to within your home – a beginner’s guide of sorts.
So what is Sex Furniture you may ask? You have heard of ‘Ergonomically Correct or Designed’ right? For example, your cell phone, laptop, tablet, pen, coffee mug, office chair are usually ergonomically designed, which means that ‘human factors’ are highly considered when designing certain items. So that the number pad on your smart phone can be easily reached by your thumb while the phone is still in the palm of your hand. Well, Sex Furniture takes Ergonomics to another level, a very intimate level.
When you consider the act of sex, or rather enjoyable sex for both partners, it’s not just about pleasure, penetration or orgasm. For both parties to have a satisfied encounter a plethora of factors come into play (we will save the tantric, emotional and mental aspects for another article *wink wink*). Great sex is a result of quite a complex combination of factors that work well together to ensure optimal pleasure. First time sex with a partner can sometimes be quite awkward and either a humorous or embarrassing encounter depending on the person.
These are the things we often not consider, right before hopping into bed with someone. Their height (no not length you naughty freak – ok just kidding that’s the second one on the list), length - but get this we are talking about length of arms, and knee to pelvis height, also how about width of their pelvis in relation to yours. Do you consider who would be on top or the potential rug burns, elbow bruises or headbutts on the headboard, wall or other random surfaces? What about your preferred angle for penetration or cunnilingus? Did you know that the position of your body can also affect the intensity of your orgasm? What about the back pain that can be caused by an awkward position, or do you have knee issues, does your partner?
Ok, so now that you are thoroughly turned off by thinking too much, sex furniture helps to take some of those issues away. These items look like pretty cool ‘modern’ furniture (with removable and washable covers) and come in a variety of colours and sizes. Specific pieces will aid in a variety of situations / conditions, assisting in optimal pleasure for different positions, as well as, aid persons who suffer from back pain, hip issues or knee injury to enjoy sex without discomfort. Sex furniture is ergonomically designed to assist persons to have some intimate fun, increase satisfaction and decrease discomfort and even the awkwardness of shifting positions, where knees often hit foreheads and the mood maybe thrown off.
So where can you get sex furniture and what if you don’t want to go that far yet, but want to try out new things in the bedroom? Ok let’s take the first question – a great website to order from is: lovebumper.com (got you smiling with that name eh J) but they only deliver within the US and Canada, so you would need to have an address there to receive. However, we have a resource right here in Jamaica that we can hook you up with for custom-made pieces, so email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org place “Sex Furniture Request” in the subject line and you will be contacted by our resource.
However if you want a few tips to get some more happiness in the bedroom (or wherever you like) try a few of these simple techniques for a start:
Place a pillow or a cushion at your lower back when your partner is on top. Raising your hips can assist in the act of penetration. It’s also less work J so persons with lower back pain will have an easier time trying this. This method is also great to try for cunnilingus, gives a whole new sensation and makes your partner’s neck more comfortable.
Go to the edge of your bed or the surface you are laying on. Depending on your partner’s height this can be a great help, it’s also easier on the knees.
Standing up during foreplay or finger-play is also a nice little trick. Your centre of gravity is now focused on your lower body; this increases blood flow to the genitalia and will also increase in pleasure.
On your tummy try placing a cushion under your hips, this helps making ‘doggie’ positions easier on the knees and back, also helps for correct hitting of the illusive g-spot.
Practice let’s also face the fact that everyone is different, so what works for you may be hanging upside-down right after doing 10 cartwheels or simple missionary. Try things out and get to know your own body as well as your partner’s.
