This morning, I read an article written by CNN contributor Shanon Cook, who talked about an experience she had in a grocery store when she was pregnant. Shockingly, a man started hitting on her, even though she was sporting a big old baby bump and was a mere three weeks from her due date.
She was pretty surprised that this dude thought she was hot considering just how pregnant she was, so she did some research on the subject and gathered a couple opinions from a sex educator and a good male friend.
The friend gave a few reasons why men find themselves attracted to pregnant women, including the increased size of their boobs, their "glow," and an innate desire to protect them. No big shockers there.
But the sex educator's opinion did kind of surprise me, because she seemed to think that pregnant women feel more comfortable and sexy in their own skin than when they are not expecting.
