Jennifer: I Just Need This Right Now


S2: Episode 4

The pickles-and-ice-cream cravings of a desperate pregnant woman and the agonized screams of an unprepared body in labor are well-worn Hollywood tropes, and for many of us, they are the first things we see and hear about birth. What we don’t see and hear are the stories that my guest Jennifer shares, like how she had the best sex of her life during the second trimester of her pregnancy, or how even though she has less sex now that she’s a mom, the feeling of release it brings her is more necessary now than ever. A freelance writer, Jennifer is thoughtful and outspoken about the vast discrepancies between the realities of sex and motherhood versus all the other shit you hear.
