"Unique in sex-advice lit and highly recommended...Hardly erotic-minded, the average mama-to-be is assumed to be throwing up, not putting out. Yet authors Cavallucci, a pregnancy coach and fitness trainer as well as a new mama herself, and Fulbright, a sexuality educator (Argosy Univ.; Pleasuring: The Secrets of Sexual Satisfaction), assert that maintaining an erotic connection during pregnancy offers real benefits for self, mate, and child. Their lively and sassy manualan OB-GYN contributed comments and vetted the medical materialdiscusses each trimester separately: what to expect physically, positions and techniques, non-penetration options, tuning in with one’s partner, and coping with fatigue and competing priorities. Throughout, safety concerns turn up repeatedly and appropriately, e.g., preggie sex no-nos, when to be concerned, and when to check with your doctor. All advice is grounded in quotes and information from other pregnant women and their partners as well as from the psychomedical literature." Martha Cornog, Library Journal
"This book was a relief to read after thumbing through so many pregnancy books that quickly skirt over a topic that is central to life during pregnancy. It keeps a light--but not condescending--tone while exploring each trimester, the post-partum days, and the big topics that transcend whatever week of your pregnancy you find yourself in. There's plenty of appropriately explicit "how-tos" along with diagrams that, alas, were left out of the early reviewer edition.
The book is targeted to the pregnant woman, of course, but partners will find it works for them too, especially the sidebars helpfully titled, "For Partners."
The book is a bit hetero-normed, but tries to stay as "sexuality neutral" as possible. There are also plenty of examples of lesbian sex during pregnancy that make this book plenty adequate no matter your partner's parts. -- Zhejw, LibraryThing Early Reviewer
A fantastic book for the recently pregnant, Fulbright and Cavalucci's book guides women (and their partners) through some of the physical and psychological barriers to intimacy during pregnancy. They offer suggestions and guidance and list situations where a doctor's guidance might be recommended." - Jshorr, LibraryThing Early Reviewer

Your Orgasmic Pregnancy is an upbeat and engaging read
At about 175 pages paperback, Your Orgasmic Pregnancy isn't an intimidating medical volume that is set on giving you all the technical details of childbirth. Instead, this engaging and quick-reading book gives a great relational look at how pregnancy and childbirth can affect the sex drive and ways to best enjoy the sensuality of a pregnant partner.
Your Orgasmic Pregnancy gives a good look at what aspects of pregnancy can be sensual. It gives the low-down on each trimester and its effects on the body in casual, easy language, and also includes a section on sex after pregnancy. Helpful sidebars help the pregnant partner understand what their long-term partner may be feeling during the pregnancy, and likewise other subsections directed at the non-pregnant partner give advice on what can be done to help the pregnant partner emotionally, mentally, and physically.
While the book has a nice relational focus, a good portion of it will also be helpful for pregnant ladies who are single or in (a) casual relationship(s). Additionally, Your Orgasmic Pregnancy gets a huge thumbs-up from me for embracing a variety of sexualities and forms of sexual expression.Read more ›
I found the information accessible and useful (although the authors sometimes went overboard on the buddy-buddy tone, and in one section the suggestions for erotic dialogue were more ridiculous than sexy). The intimacy-positive tone should go a long way toward helping the reader to maintain a positive attitude toward her pregnancy in general and sex life in particular, making this addition to the books-for-expecting-mothers literature well worth any future family's time.
Please note: I have chosen to give this title three stars *only* because I cannot comment on the usefulness of the illustrations, as they were not included in my advanced reader's copy. I may revise my rating once I see the finished product.
