Sex is part of healthy, happy marriage, and kids are curious, sneaky creatures who have a tendency to pop in at the exact wrong moment. It happens. And while, yes, the moment can be unbearably uncomfortable, it can also be hilarious, tender, and a good teaching experience. We have twin boys. When they were 4, they were inseparable. Where one went, the other went. The same went for one when the other got up in the middle of the night. My wife and I were doing our thing one night, and I heard a giggle. Then I heard a second giggle. Great, I thought.

Jessica Walsh is coming up on a two-year anniversary, but she's not celebrating. It's been nearly two years since she and her husband last had sex, since before their only child was born.

For some couples, sex can become almost, if not entirely, nonexistent once baby arrives.
Many parents of young children are in the exact same boat. I mean, really, your biggest priority in life is to care for your children. You need to work to provide for your children — feed them, cloth them, entertain them and make sure you give them ample opportunities to grow and evolve as little humans. Then, on top of that, you want to maintain a shred of the life that you once used to have: be it going out with your buddies, or enjoying a movie night, perhaps a yoga class or going for a jog with the stroller. It is not uncommon for mothers of newborns to feel disgusted by their partners. Especially the one who gave birth. They might experience some pain in the organs that are supposed to give them pleasure during sex A. A genitals , and having sex is off the cards.
