Va Va Valentine's Day: Your First Time Back in the Sack

We are bringing sexy back in a big way this Valentine's Day at LilSugar. No "schedule a date night," just tips to get you and hubby back in the sack.

The thought of postpartum sex can keep some new mamas from the bedroom. Thirty-six percent of LilSugar readers got busy by the time they hit the six-week mark, but another 13 percent waited until three months had passed.

If you need a nudge, consider reading Kristen Chase's The Mominatrix Guide to Sex, A No-Surrender Advice Book for Naughty Moms Here are some tidbits from the text:

  • Worried about the baby fat? Invest in some pieces of lingerie that will hide the offending baby pounds, and "when all else fails, pure darkness and a few drinks can remedy almost any pregnancy-induced bodily imperfection."
  • Nervous about getting things going after several weeks (or months) of keeping to yourself? Bring some sex games into the bedroom, "they're popular because you can add a little humor into your sex life, which is something most postpartum moms could definitely use more of."
  • Choose positions that give you control of the speed and level of penetration. "This way you can ease yourself back into it at your own pace."
  • Lube-up! Nursing can drain the body of any excess moisture, and that includes moisture down below. "Just save yourselves some trouble, invest in some lube, and be free with it . . . [just] make sure sure you put down some towels before you get hot and heavy."
