    Lightbulb Orgasms give pain relief during childbirth-should hospitals provide orgasms ?

    The Irish Times is today carrying a story about orgasmic child birth:

    Irish Times [excerpts]

    A documentary, dealing with a woman’s ‘orgasmic rushes’ during labour, is being screened all over the world, including several recent midwifery gatherings in Britain, writes VIV GROSKOP

    AMBER HARTNELL did not intend to have an orgasmic birth – it just happened.

    “I just got into this ecstatic state where I had these peaks of orgasm. There were these rolling waves coming through me where I was laughing and crying. I didn’t feel like I was having contractions. They were more like rushes. I did not actually experience pain, I experienced intense sensations.”

    But Hartnell says this is definitely what happened during labour with her son Orus, now three and a half. She had a water birth at home over a 12-hour period and the “orgasmic rushes” kept coming from about two-thirds of the way through.

    “It was the most overwhelming pleasure I have ever felt in my life,” Hartnell says. “It was like an energetic movement through me.”

    An advocate of “ecstatic birth” – pleasurable, drug-free labour – May Gaskin once conducted a poll of 151 women in which 32 reported having at least one orgasmic birth

    Why then do we feel so uncomfortable about the idea of women having an orgasm when they are actually giving birth?
    “It crosses the margin of decency – which I think is wrong,” says Kitzinger.
    So should our hospitals be striving to provide orgasmic births ? Would this save on pain & money ? Would it be socially acceptable for doctors to be getting into the orgasm business again ?

    Would orgasms for the dads be of any use.

    Free jazzmags in the waiting room is the very least we should be provided with. The health system is sooo pro-wimmin

    Badly written original post.

    "Orgasms give pain relief during childbirth"

    ???

    It's several decades ago now, but I have no memory of having an orgasm when I was being born.

    I'll say one thing for ya Cyberianpan ... you do put up interesting posts! Saw it and thought hmmmm Cyberianpan? and yep it was


    Depends on the level of screaming and shouting I suppose ... would it be noisier than during normal childbirth - to which the answer would prob be yes .... plus earmuffs would have to be provided to those present who wished to avail of them?

    I've been pleasuring women all my life but I didn't think I started that young.

    Indeed ... as per the tag ... would intentionally seeking orgasm from the baby movements be child abuse ? In effect it is turning the baby into a giant dildo ...
