    Ray likes it like that.In the Season 2 opener of the male-prostitute comedy-drama Hung, Ray, the well-endowed main character, gets hired to “service” a heavily pregnant woman. At first, he holds back because he says he’s worried about hurting the baby -- a myth that a lot of us fall for.But when he’s pushed, Ray reveals his real worry: Becoming emotionally involved. Being attracted to a pregnant lady is no problem, he reports; in fact, when he was with his ex-wife, he was “almost drunk on” the heady sexiness of boinking while pregnant. Opening that Pandora's Box worries him, and the episode ends with him not schtupping, but holding his client in a satisfied, post-coital spoon. Yikers. It’s one of those situations that made viewers squirm for many reasons. But I think the basis of it all is: Can we find pregnant women sexy, or is this too tough of a taboo?

    Pregnant sex was the topic of the evening during last Sunday's episode of the HBO comedy, Hung.

    **Spoiler Alert**

    Thomas Jane -- who plays Ray Drecker, a high school teacher turned male prostitute -- is hired by a pregnant woman whose husband left her. At first he is nervous and scared (look to the title of the show for more on why) that he will hurt the baby. Soon he discovers that he's struggling not because of girth or length, but because he's reminded of his ex-wife and how he "loved" to have sex with her while she was pregnant.

    "It was just so full of hope," he says.

    Awwww.

    How many guys really feel like Ray?

    Billy Idol famously sang about shotgun weddings in "White Wedding" -- weddings in which the bride is pregnant -- and it seems every celebrity and their mom is having one (hi, Bethenny!), but are "shotgun weddings" really as common as they seem?

    A 2007 survey from MaternityBride.com found that one in every six brides is pregnant. And this includes many celebrities like: Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Amanda Peet, Jessica Alba. All were knocked up when they walked down the aisle.

    Personally, I like the "first comes love" order of things.

    A pregnant teacher has been fired from her job, so why is the school claiming this is anything but pregnancy discrimination?

    Because it's a Christian school.

    And Jarretta Hamilton admitted that her baby was conceived three weeks before her wedding.

    Oops.

    Flickr photo by solarixxMasturbation is one of those topics that far too few people discuss (except in jest) in public.

    And masturbation while pregnant? Might as well not exist.

    Except it does. Get most pregnant women talking and they might giggle a bit, but most will admit that self-pleasure was probably one of the most important gifts they gave themselves during pregnancy. 

    Or, as Oscar Wilde once said: “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”

    Photo from advocate.comAre you pregnant with baby #2 or 3 or 4 -- but also have a child from a previous marriage or relationship? If so, you're a proud package deal like Sex and the City star, Cynthia Nixon. She told The Advocate: “I feel like falling in love with her [partner Christine Marinoni] is part of being amazed at how she makes our family so much better.” 

    Welcoming Marinoni into the family made it that much stronger too.

    With the way guys feel about sex all other times (anytime, anywhere), Sam Holt of the Being Dad DVD series that aims to help guys be better birth partners and poppas, tried to figure it out. He interviewed hundreds of men around the world as to why some men don't like having sex during their partner's third trimester, and here's some of what they said (via Pregnancy.org):

    Sad FaceThere's a frowny face in my pink doctor's-appointment notebook under the date of my most recent visit. The baby's great, fine, she's swimming around like a champ and her heart is beating like a champ and her tests are all coming back groovy-schmoovy. And I'm doing great too, in much better shape than my first pregnancy: blood pressure lower, weight more steady, mood and energy better. The problem is this: I have one more month of orgasms, and then – pelvic rest. Pelvic. Rest. Do you know what that means? It sounds like someone settling into one of those drawer-beds that Japanese businessmen sleep in and sliding into a nice vagina-nap. What it really means is – no sex.

    Amazon: $40.54It's getting to be that time: my belly's bigger, my tendons are stretchier, my back is achier – I'm getting to need a pregnancy pillow. During my first pregnancy, I became completely desperate, all in one day, and ran down to my local pregnancy emporium and paid full price for a Snoogle.

    Some people love this thing. My emotions are more complex. Yes, it gave me a tremendous amount of physical relief: my knees, my belly, my hips all thanked me. But the only way it fit in my bed, gave me all that support, and allowed me to get up and pee 7 times a night was if it went smack-dab right in between me and my husband. Which I hated. It was like having a big, fluffy chaperone. This time around, I'm going to see if there's a smaller version – maybe a nice little wedge – that'll leave me nestled in his loving arms, not spooning with Nemutan.
