This Woman Had A 3-WEEK ORGASM Each Time She Gave Birth
A woman in the UK seems to have gotten the conception process a little muddled up, claiming to have enjoyed orgasms lasting close to a MONTH after the births of each of her four children.
Emily Street, who, coincidentally, is a midwife, was freaking out as she neared the end of her first pregnancy and decided to turn to hypnobirthing; the theory is that breathing slowly and steadily relaxes the muscle fibres in the uterus and allows for an easier and all-round more pleasant experience.
But no-one could have predicted how pleasant that experience would be for Emily.
"People think that hypnobirthing is this airy-fairy, hippie, new-age thing, but it's really not," the mum-of-four explained. "It's a real, back-to-basics principle.
"Giving birth was nothing more than uncomfortable. There was no pain in the traditional sense."
Emily signed up for a three-part course, learning how to keep calm and avoid hyperventilating during labour.
"Rather than taking deep breaths in and tightening up, you take really nice long, slow breaths, with the lights down and the music playing," she continued. "I'd asked for talking to be kept to a minimum so that I could really focus - I certainly didn't want someone shouting 'Push! Push! Push!'
"I absolutely loved every minute of being in labour."
And, by the sounds of things, after the labour.
"The euphoria that I felt after my birth was very, very close to [an orgasm] sensation," Emily admitted, "but which lasted for three or four weeks as opposed to something that's very intense for a short amount of time."
If that doesn't get you through the first few weeks of sleepless nights, we don't know what will.
