I have thought that I'd have either two reactions to pain during labor. One is being withdrawn or the other is being super sensual. Call me crazy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: but I always found the crampiness of my menstruations to be very sensual. Well aside from the bleeding, the process in which my uterus would compress and tone was quite comforting to me.<br><br>
During this pregnancy I have felt very sensual and sexy. Especially when I'd think about the details in which this pregnancy was conceived<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">. I would <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"> to harness that energy for releasing tension during labor.<br><br>
Anytime that I'd feel uncomfortable I would just incorporate a sensual element into my deep breathing by letting out low sexual moans as I exhaled. This technique is simple but it works wonders for releasing tension <b>Everywhere!</b> You instantly feel the difference. It works so well that Dh has incorporated this trick for releasing his own tension. Only around the house that is<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> .<br><br>
Feeling this way through out my pregnancy has definitely contributed to my empowerment of self. Providing a confidence in my heart, control of my body, and trust in my instincts.<br><br><span>Pregnancy begins in Sensuality why not end it in Sensuality<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"></span>

Contractions are a total turn on to me - as long as I'm relaxed and able to sit back and enjoy, pain isn't a factor - just like something else...

I feel the same way.<br>
In fact, I'm really looking forward to labor. Braxton Hicks, though sometimes painful are so feminine and sensual to me.

Glad that works for you! It wouldn't for me--I'm just way too self-conscious even around DH. Actually, esp. around DH. So I can't do this. But it does make sense.

All of my dilation contractions (active labor) felt like deep penetration during sex to me. I moaned like we were having sex and enjoyed it, despite the fact that the contractions were also painful (pain wasn't that bad until transition). Dh also noticed the moans were sex moans. It's one reason I like to be alone (just w/dh) for active labor. I don't really want to share my happy sex moans with anyone but him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Totally agree about a lot of labor being very sexual and not in a bad way, either.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> After this thread I noticed that whenever I have a BH, I let out a quiet little sigh/moan. You know how you feel when your lover gives you a secret caress in a public place? That's what BHs feel like to me... just a little reminder that the fun is coming <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

DH said I sounded throughout like I was moaning like I was about to have an orgasm. Hee. If I could do that, buck naked, rocking back and forth, with about six people staring at me, maybe I should seriously think about going into porn. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> j/k
