submitter.. do you know where babies come from?

last time I checked sex DOES cause labor
 
2006-06-02 11:05:14 AM  
Well, why is it such hard work to get some then?
/not THAT ugly, am I? On second thought, don't answer that...
 
2006-06-02 11:21:06 AM  
Who cares... you ain't getting any for at least six weeks after labour.

/Last chance...

Nice, I am e-mailing that to my wife to let her know she is getting some hardcore bonage tonight.
 
2006-06-02 11:28:01 AM

Ha, if you're lucky!

What I don't get is how you guys even WANT to do it with a 9mo preggie woman. I felt like a beach whale but that didn't stop my hubby from trying.

Pregnant women are extremely sexy.

... when faced with an extended "dry spell", us guys will take anything warm and wet.

... to learn more about New Fathers, contact Parks Canada. This has been a Hinterland, Who's Who.

/Plus, pregnant chicks are sexy.

Since there really isn't a guy equivalent, I'm just going to have to take your word on it.

/saw a guy today who looked pregnant
// it wasn't sexy
 
2006-06-02 12:00:01 PM  
hot spicy mexican food sure does.
 
2006-06-02 04:38:10 PM  
yeah, we were two weeks late. tried it. didn't work.

/was worth the effort :)
 
2006-06-02 04:43:51 PM  
I dunno about this study, but for some reason, when I was a young'un I could never fall asleep unless I was rocked vigorously and poked in the head with a wiffle bat first.

/not really
//obligatory joke
 
2006-06-02 04:47:45 PM  
You always had a soft-spot for dad.
 
2006-06-02 04:52:03 PM  
Of course sex causes labor... You have sex, the kid gets born, then the labor begins: changing diapers, feeding, accident-proofing, crib-building, and the list goes on and on.

You still had a vagina.
 
2006-06-02 07:27:47 PM  
sex = labor. Well I generally figured it was sex = pregnancy = labor = kid, so are they saying that sex doesn't = getting pregnant.

/didn't rtfa
 
2006-06-02 07:29:15 PM  
You know what they say about the best way to get a baby to come out --- the same way you got it in there.
 
2006-06-02 07:30:45 PM  
I always thought it was that sex required labor.
 
2006-06-02 07:31:08 PM  
so THAT'S what Labor Day meant...
 
2006-06-02 07:31:13 PM  
I thought it meant you had to labor: make more money to get laid.
 
2006-06-02 07:33:16 PM  
bad: poked in the eye by dad before i popped out
good: chicks dig pirates
 
2006-06-02 07:34:11 PM  
Would somebody get on the FOXNEWS front page and post the story about the pilot having to wrestle a snake to land his plane.

Please...Its really funny
 
2006-06-02 07:35:00 PM  
what a bunch of butt pirates posting on this thread! i bet half of you are canadien?
 
2006-06-02 07:35:35 PM  
The real labor begins when you get divorced and need to make the support payments.
 
2006-06-02 07:38:30 PM  
From an evolutionary standpoint, it is puzzling why men still want sex with a woman who is already pregnant, or for that matter, why (some) pregnant women remain horny right up until birth. It's not like they're going to get any more pregnant than they already are.

From a male standpoint, if it washiattable before pregnancy, it will usually be hittable during as well.

good: chicks dig pirates
better: pirates kick ninjas ass'

BlueBook:

And in the case of a pregnant woman whom you didn't impregnate, you know that you won't be getting her pregnant. Additionally you know that she puts out...

Just make sure that the father is already known so that you don't have to go through a mess proving that you're not responsible...
 
2006-06-02 07:42:12 PM  
Haha! Double filter-owned! Ah screw it, you know what I meant.
 
2006-06-02 07:43:19 PM  
TWX: Good call
 
2006-06-02 07:43:53 PM  
Hey--some of us enjoy sex right up until...THE MOMENT.

My guys were both born early--five days and 11 days.

Just sayin'...

You ain't seen anything until you've seen D-cup moobs.
 
2006-06-02 07:45:15 PM  
What about a study proving the theory that pregnancy causes impotence? I don't think I could get it up if I knew the girl was on her first day of pregnancy, let alone her 9th month.
 
2006-06-02 07:45:26 PM

I actually the source of that attraction is quite the opposite. Any male can see that a pregnant female is fertile. Therefore, she immediately exemplifies one who can carry on your own genetic heritage, even if you had as much as a farker's chance in hell of hitting her. But since you know deep down that she's willing and able to bear offspring, THAT IMO is the source of attraction.
 
2006-06-02 07:48:20 PM  
I wonder if they have studied the effectiveness of the "shocker" in inducing labor.

BlueBook: From an evolutionary standpoint, it is puzzling why men still want sex with a woman who is already pregnant, or for that matter, why (some) pregnant women remain horny right up until birth. It's not like they're going to get any more pregnant than they already are.

First, from an evolutionary standpoint, men always want sex. Most men would bang a tree stump if it had hair around a knothole. As for women - hormones. They go absolutely nuts during pregnancy, and for some women, their testosterone gets up over normal male levels, and they want some lovin'.

All of which is good.

Attention Retarded Farkers

This study refers to the axiom that coitus will induce labor in pregnant women. That is, a pregnant woman will begin to give birth after sex.

/that is all
 
2006-06-02 07:54:01 PM  
It still feels like you are mounting a beach ball though...
 
2006-06-02 07:54:03 PM  
I think everyone gets that CommiePuddin.. it's just more fun to make smart-assed comments about where babies come from..

/better get your sarcasm meter checked, it seems to be broken
 
2006-06-02 08:03:50 PM  
no comment but this:

dont care if its true or not, got me lots more sex the last month of my wife's pregnancy... so who cares....

/get some
 
2006-06-02 08:04:40 PM  
You know why men find pregenant women attractive?

Because we know they put out.

TIME TO PORK THE PREGGOS
 
2006-06-02 08:08:47 PM  
Sure it does...after like a nine-month delay.

Now extended *nipple stimulation*, that brings on labour.

This PSA brought to you by Krapsnart, provider of Krapsnart-based services.

/22 weeks pregnant as of yesterday
//doesn't want anyone anywhere near her nipples right now, for several reasons
 
2006-06-02 08:13:01 PM  
krapsnart just reminded me of my favorite game when my wife was pregnant... nipple touch/pinch/grab


it was fun for me, mild torture for her.. still play to this day.... i guess the only winner is me, but i am okay with that....
 
2006-06-02 08:18:11 PM  
First off, a thread jack.

NINJA'S RULE, PIRATES SUCK.

Second off

Pregnant women, to me, are teh gross.
 
2006-06-02 08:20:04 PM  
To those questioning the evolutionary advantage of sex during pregnancy:

If the gal gets super-horny during pregnancy, the guy is more likely to stick around throughout the pregancy, and probably for a while after the pregnancy. Therefore, the child will have two parents, at least for the first couple of months/years. Therefore, the child is more likely to survive, and pass on it's genetic material.
 
2006-06-02 08:27:09 PM  
Yeah, pregnant sex at 9 months didn't do a thing to start labor for me. Tried it right up to 2 weeks overdue, and it never did a thing. Not even any extra cramps. Nipple stimulation didn't do anything either, nor did walking, eggplant parmagiana, or any of the other stupid old wives tales we tried. Junior was just way too comfy in there...
 
2006-06-02 08:29:15 PM  
"Patients may continue to hear the 'old wives' tale' that intercourse will hasten labor...

It sounds more like this is an 'old husbands' tale.
 
2006-06-02 08:30:29 PM  
Funny - my wife's doc advised us that sperm has very similar chemical properties to the gel they use to thin out the cervix to induce labour, only sperm was less expensive and more fun to apply.
