Have you ever heard of the Nirupa Roy syndrome? It’s the one where the moment a woman becomes pregnant/a mother, she is deemed to be a creature devoid of all desire, especially sexual.

Thanks to our Bollywood films, our mothers have always occupied a place on a pedestal and it would be considered sacrilege to put the M word and the S word together. Why else were our on-screen mommies usually widows? No husband is equal to no sex life. So the only time she had sex was to procreate and heaven help her because that would be the last time she would be guilty of that pleasure.

A pregnant woman is known to have cravings. Some love the taste of sour fruit, like lemons…some others crave ice cream in the middle of the night. When I was pregnant, I craved sex.

  1. I feel one can take advantage of this time. Share the joy of how your body is changing. Sex during pregnancy is a great way to stay mentally, emotionally, and physically connected.

  2. This has to be the most honest personal narrative I have read in a while. Very brave of you to admit it, and also interesting to know that such cravings can arise during pregnancy.

  3. It is really very bold of you to admit to this craving you had. I can only imagine the look on people’s faces when you told them about it.

  4. Such an honest honest article this is! I cannot think of any woman who would admit to her cravings for sex during pregnancy. In fact women don’t admit to being in the ‘mood’ even on normal days. Women are not supposed to ‘want’ sex in India! Thanks for sharing!
