You have probably heard for your whole life that childbirth and labor are the most painful thing ever. The suffering that your mother probably went through to bring you into this world! What if childbirth could actually be, not only a pleasant experience, but literally orgasmic? Filmmaker and Lamaze-certified midwife Debra Pascali-Bonaro will tell us how women can increase their chances of having an actual orgasm during birthing, what for so long has been called "labor." Not only are the brain chemicals, like oxytocin, released during sex present during childbirth, but the sorts of things that make for a "romantic experience" soft lighting, a hot tub, pleasant smells, a glass of wine, making out with your partner, focusing on the sensations of the body - are all things things could lead to not only a more pleasant labor experience, but maybe even an actual orgasm!! According to mother Amber Hartnell, her orgasm during labor really didn't feel any different than the kind of orgasm you could have during intercourse.
