Is it possible to balance the swinging lifestyle with being pregnant? Yes, some people keep swinging while they are pregnant or trying to become pregnant. Other swingers choose to take a break from swinging temporarily. Both options are acceptable personal choices.
Here is some information to help you figure out which option might be the better choice for your own personal swinging situation.
Worries of Pregnant Swingers
Couples thinking about swinging while pregnant have a few common worries. The good news is you are not the first swinging couple to be facing pregnancy, so you can learn from others to help make it easier for your own situation.
Are Other Swingers Attracted to Pregnant Swingers?
Many women don’t appear to be pregnant for several months. Your attraction won’t be impacted during that time. Once a lady does start to show signs of being pregnant, some swinger men may be less attracted, but other men might become even more attracted with her more ample bosom and glowing skin. Swingers tend to be more mature, which means many of them are likely experienced with pregnancy sex when expecting their own children. These more experienced swingers will understand what is happening to your body and won’t be distracted from your sexiness. There are also some people that have a fetish for pregnant ladies. Those couples can make for a perfect match as they can enjoy their pregnancy fetish, and the expecting husband can enjoy certain sexual positions that might not be the best position for his pregnant partner. Ultimately, there will definitely be swingers attracted to pregnant women.
Regardless of other swingers’ attraction to you, some women may feel quite insecure about their body during their pregnancy, largely due to hormonal imbalances. A pregnant lady’s mood and libido can be unstable. To better handle this situation, you should openly communicate with each other to address the evolving emotional issues that might change your swinging preferences as your pregnancy progresses.
Is Swinging Safe While Pregnant?
Every pregnant couple’s situation is different. Ensure you check with your own doctor about sex during pregnancy and any positions he or she might recommend avoiding, given your individual background. Many pregnant women can enjoy a robust sex life, but other women find certain medical conditions hinder them. Even if your doctor places no restrictions on your sex life, there are still some health concerns like STIs in the lifestyle. Condoms can prevent many STIs, but they aren’t perfect. Some STIs can be passed in utero. This fear is a big reason why many swingers choose to take a break from the swinging lifestyle during pregnancy. Obviously, not swinging is a simple answer, but it is not the only answer. There are many options a couple can choose to still enjoy their sexier side while pregnant.
Steps For Safer Swinging While Pregnant
No sex is ever 100% safe. Thankfully there are many things that swingers can do to protect themselves and their growing family better. It is up to each pregnant couple to think about what makes the most sense for their own situation.
- Trusted Swinging Partners
Be careful when selecting swinging partners. Discuss with your partner what people will make you both feel comfortable. Limiting yourself to only trusted and established swinging partners can help reduce your risk and worries. Be completely honest and clearly discuss with your swinging friends any new rules or restrictions you might want. If you have close swinging friends, they might be open to only swinging with you during your pregnancy and being freshly tested for any STIs. Before making this suggestion, you might want to test the waters first to minimize the chance of offending them. Honestly, your family’s health is worth the risk of possibly offending someone. True swingers understand the need to ask for STI tests, so don’t be afraid.
- Use Condoms
Even if you are with only trusted swingers, you should still use condoms. STI tests aren’t always 100% accurate. Some STIs can take several weeks to trigger a positive test result. There is also the very rare possibility of becoming double impregnated. Talk with your partner and figure out which rules work best for you, and then let your swinging partners know any new rules and boundaries while you are pregnant.
- Soft-Swap Limits
Before facing pregnancy, you may have enjoyed full swap swinging. When you are pregnant, you might find it less stressful to limit yourself to soft swap play. Excluding vaginal penetration can simplify things and greatly reduce your worries. It helps to minimize STI risk, and you can still enjoy the thrill of the swinging lifestyle. Discuss this with your swinging partners before starting to prevent misunderstandings. Set the rules but enjoy the playtime.
- Bisexual Play
Another way to reduce STI risks is to limit yourself to only swapping with bisexual ladies. Many STI transmission rates are tremendously lower between women. External kissing and touching tend to provide a lower risk profile. It can also feel much less intimidating for a pregnant woman to open up with another woman rather than not feel pressured to appeal to men who aren’t always in tune with the challenges a woman’s body needs to handle.
- Be Voyeurs
Just because you are pregnant does not mean you have to exclude yourself from life. You can still attend swinging events and enjoy them as voyeurs. Not swapping with other people removes the STI risk, and you can still enjoy the social benefits of being connected with your sex-positive friends. There is no pressure to perform for other people so you can more easily feel comfortable in your own skin.
Decide For Yourselves
Different people have different comfort levels and preferences. You have the option to keep swinging while pregnant. Before using that option, you and your partner should consider what is best for your situation to make sure you are on the same page. Speak with your doctor together, so you can both communicate in an informed position and figure out what is best for you.
Regardless of what you decide to do while pregnant, there is also plenty of swinging to enjoy after pregnancy. Here are some tips to help you transition back into swinging after being pregnant. That is another decision that is different for each couple.
