This question is for both men and women but I'm especially interested in the male point of view here. After your wife gave birth did you notice penetration being less enjoyable due to the stretching or anything? Just curious as to what it might feel like to DH after our first child is born. Thanks.

Yes, for us it does feel different. Before birth I felt very tight. I could contract my muscles even tighter which felt very good. Now, my muscles are looser not loose but it's noticable. We still enjoy sex as much as ever but I do wish it was as tight.


HTH!

Unless there was physical trauma to the vagina during birth,

I did notice a slight difference in HOW it felt, but no noticeable difference in the tightness. DW had two natural births, with little or no tearing.


Like Tish said, unless there was some trauma, the body is made to stretch and return to its normal state.
