One of the scariest parts of having a kid… Labor! I’m not going to get into all of the different ways to have a baby until–Let’s say at least not until I’m pregnant. But when I came across a crazy story on 20/20 I couldn’t help but think this would be the best way to go.
The idea of a natural birth never seemed appealing to me.. That is until I heard about Orgasmic Labor… Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about! Although drugged-up and pain-free sounds fun, this way could be even better. Apparently some people try to have an orgasmic delivery while others it just happens for.
I told my husband about the story and told him I thought it was a great way to go but he brought up a good point… While you can try, it doesn’t happen to everyone. I’m not sure how common it is but I can only imagine how angry I’d be if I purposely didn’t get the epidural–Thinking I’d have a euphoric delivery, but it instead turns out excruciating.
Orgasmic labor also brings up the question of the “birthing video.” It’s bad enough having one of those to begin with (although I’m not gonna lie I actually think it’s awesome) but a delivery video like THAT may be mistaken for a kinky sex tape.
If you like to read it here’s the whole story. But you can watch it below.
To prove that it is possible to have pleasure in childbirth, Pascali-Bonaro made a documentary called “Orgasmic Birth.” After seeing this story I just had to learn more, so for those of you who are as curious as I am… For your viewing enjoyment, here is the trailer for the documentary.
