Before I was exposed to birth, I thought it would be odd - after all, a baby is not a sexual thing, so if my DH has the image of a baby coming out of my vagina, will he be able to 'see' the vagina as a sexual thing again?
My DH has had NO problems WHATSOEVER! But... I will say... he has one of the most healthy attitudes toward sex of anyone I've ever met. He's just a laid-back guy. Comfortable with his own body & his sexuality. No hang-ups or shyness about what he likes, just a great healthy attitude.
Incidentally, I attribute part of this healthy attitude towards sex to my MIL. DH went to catholic schools & the nuns actually told the kids they'd go to hell for masturbating. I think this is an extremely DAMAGING thing to teach a child & can only lead to all sorts of hang-ups about sexuality & your own body. But my MIL, cool lady that she is, made a point of telling him, "Don't listen to the nuns. It's ok, it's not a sin."
DH wasn't immediately interested in 'catching' DS, but as we took Bradley training, got more educated, watched other birth videos, he became much more interested in doing so. And, after the head was out & my MW unwound the cord, DS did
grab DS & put him on my chest.
Anyway, I will say though that it has been a bit
weird for DH to see my BFing... particularly since I'm small-breasted & the bigger-boobs from BFing are sexy to him.. but, of course, seeing the baby latched on is NOT a sexy thing, so that's been a little
weird, but just a little. Not a big deal.
