Kareena Kapoor recently launched her Pregnancy Bible where she talked about everything a woman goes through during pregnancy. The actress also wrote about sex drives during pregnancies in her book. Now the actress had come out to talk about it.
Recently while she was engaged in an interview with a news portal, she reportedly said that most women in India are ‘scared’ to discuss sex. She also added that nobody wants to talk about belching, swollen feet and not feeling sexy enough or hair loss or mood swings and things like that. This is also a reason the actress has talked about sex in the book. She believes that these are the things that one should be talking about.
Kareena talks about sex and libido during pregnancy in her book. She had also written about a series of suggestions of sexual positions. The book also talks about the stigmas and trauma following C-sections and more.
“Nobody wants to talk about belching and swollen feet and not feeling sexy enough, or hair loss, or getting such bad mood swings you don’t even feel like talking,” she told the Guardian. “That’s why we talk about sex in the book. Most women in India get scared to address this issue. But these are things that we should be talking about,” she added.
During an Instagram live session at the time of her book launch she said and quoted by Hindustan Times, “People just feel like… When you are pregnant, they don’t realise the kind of moods, emotions, feelings, what you actually feel about yourself. That’s so important. Some days, I would feel super amazing and sexy, and feel ‘oh my God, I am looking so hot with this belly’ and I feel amazing, and I would tell Saif that or he would say, ‘You are looking beautiful’.”
“But there were times post six-seven months where I felt like… Of course, I was exhausted and I couldn’t get myself to get up sometimes in the morning. But sometimes, it’s just a feeling of repulsion. You are just in a mental state when you don’t know what to think. It’s so important to have a supportive man and most men should not put pressure on their wives to a) look beautiful while they are pregnant and b) feel they are any less. That pressure shouldn’t be there or like ‘this is it, our regular sex life has to be super-active’,” she added.
