Mom Gets Real About Sex After Giving Birth In Hilarious Video

"Downstairs is as dry as the Sahara desert!"

A mom and vlogger got real about a topic many new parents hesitate to talk about: sex after giving birth.

Riona O Connor posted a two-minute video on Facebook titled, “Sex After Baby - How Soon Is Too Soon?” In the video, she opened up about her first attempts at postpartum sex (“downstairs is as dry as the Sahara desert!”), the stress and anxiety new moms feel about this topic (“Let’s stop putting all this pressure on ourselves!”) and worries about depriving their partners (“They’re grand! They have not had to grow something in their body and push it through their penis.”).

Watch the full video above for some blunt new mom wisdom.
