Noone said people should accept their looks just because they have experienced the miracle of giving birth. We still need to be comfortable with our bodies to be happy and to function properly in our social/love lives.
Again, I am comfortable with clothes on, but have never been comfortable without clothes on. I have not had any sex since I was 9 weeks pregnant, so that's been well over 3 years.
If I have sex again, I will be feeling extremely self aware. I do not have a husband who will love me for who and what I am. Unfortunately when looking for that special someone, people do tend to judge the covers and not the pages
THIS is why I refuse to have sex with someone who I know does not love me or does not know me as a person yet. I will hold off with sex for as long I need to until I am positive that he will not run away regardless of what my body looks like naked.
I have not had sex with the lights on for 6 years now. So even before having DS I wasn't comfortable with my body being seen naked by my partner.
I think part of this problem is to blame by several bad experiences I have been through in the past.
