People Get Candid About How Their Sex Lives Changed After Having A Baby

People Get Candid About How Their Sex Lives Changed After Having A Baby

Intercourse is (often) the act that brings a child into a relationship ― but once the baby arrives, couples’ sexual intimacy generally takes a backseat to the all-encompassing task of keeping a tiny human alive. If one partner has given birth, they will need time for physical healing, and if they’re breastfeeding, couples may need to switch up their erogenous zones. Yet we somehow expect that people will tolerate this change and then find their way back to a healthy sexual relationship without a struggle, without outside help and without honest conversations about their needs and desires. The truth is that after becoming parents, it takes a lot of effort, and often some creativity, to bring a sexual relationship back to a place that is satisfying for everyone involved. Below, people share the ways that their sexual relationships changed after the birth of a child, and how they handled it with their partners. ‘Physical intimacy was lacking because it was the last thing I could even think about.’ Jillian Amodio is a social worker who …

Hannah Waddingham Gets Candid About Wanting Jason Sudeikis’ Approval on ‘Ted Lasso’: ‘Never Worked So Hard’

Hannah Waddingham has performed on the West End and on one of the biggest shows in television history. But it was her breakout role on Ted Lasso that made her nervous — due in part to her desire to impress the show’s creator and lead, Jason Sudeikis. In a preview clip from her upcoming interview on NBC News’ Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist  — which airs this Sunday, April 21 — Waddingham recalls Sudeikis’ “vision” for her character, Rebecca Welton, the owner of a struggling football club who initially hires the titular coach in order to sink the team, but ends up being won over by his charm and positivity. The actress recalls the audition process, remembering that Sudeikis later told her, “I saw Rebecca first. And then I had to get to know Hannah.” “It made me very emotional when I heard him say it, because he doesn’t give compliments lightly,” she tells Geist. “That was just gorgeous.” The show, as Waddingham explains, was Sudeikis’ “baby,” as the former Saturday Night Live star first created the Ted Lasso character in …

Courtney Love Is As Candid As Ever When It Comes To Beyoncé, Taylor Swift And Madonna

Courtney Love has always been one to speak her mind – and that’s evidently not about to change any time soon.

While she praised legends like of Patti Smith, Nina Simone and PJ Harvey, she had less complimentary words for pop fave Taylor Swift. “Taylor is not important.

The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple of drinks. “Then there’s the French a language I studied through high school and then lost as I immersed myself in speaking Spanish with the Argentinians during my stint in Buenos Aires. “I have put my little Rosetta Stone headset in my eager ears every year, resolving to do interviews en francais, but much to my chagrin, it hasn’t stuck.” She then shares her most “unladylike” one – biting her …
