Do/Would You Have Sex Whilst Your Baby Was in the Room? - January 16th 2012, 10:54 PM

As the title suggests, if you have a child do you have sex whilst the baby is in the room? Or do you make sure you're in a different room?
Or to people that plan on having a child in the future, do you plan on having sex whilst they're in the room?

For me and my partner we plan to have sex when it comes (only a week until due date ^^), it will be in a cot and won't be able to see us and it would be asleep when we did it. It would also be less than a year old whilst we did this so I can't see this as being a problem since nobody can remember this part of their lives anyway.
Besides, don't they recommend that you keep your child in the same room as you for the first few months, it would be silly to expect parents not to have sex in this time.

We did. Our son was in the room with us in his own bed for the first three months. Granted I couldn't have sex for the first six weeks, him being in the room didn't stop us. He was still just a blob who only cried, pooped and ate so it obviously didn't effect him at all. Plus, he was already asleep when we did. Anything past six months though would make me uncomfortable I think, and if the baby was awake.. no deal.

I'm going to move this to Current Events & Debates, as I feel as if you'd get proper answers from there.

To answer your question though, I'd only feel comfortable with it if the baby is sleeping. Obviously, my first priority would be the baby and not sex. After 6 months, I'd feel more comfortable having sex if the baby was outside of the room, in their own. You aren't supposed to have sex for the first 6 weeks anyway, since you have to give her time to heal.

I think up to the age of like three, who cares as long as they're sleeping? If I have a two year old, they're FINALLY asleep, we're in a hotel room with them in the room, and I'm in the mood? Sex is happening. I'm not sure why it matters. Even if they wake up, it's not like they'd have any idea what's going on, I doubt there would be any "future trauma" or whatever. I don't think there's anything wrong with it.

I don't think I'd feel comfortable with it. Even if they won't know what's going on, I'd feel awkward that there's another human being in the room with me while it's happening.

I don't think there's anything wrong with it up until they're like 2. Either way they should be in their own room by like 1 years old. That's my plan anyways.

I don't see anything wrong with it, but I'm not sure that I would do it.

Re: Do/Would You Have Sex Whilst Your Baby Was in the Room? - January 18th 2012, 05:53 PM

I wouldn't worry about the baby seeing/hearing you. At birth, the ability to see (and I believe hear, but don't quote me on that) isn't fully developed, so even if the baby were facing you and could "see" you, it would only see a couple blurs. Besides, a lot of people have sex while pregnant, so why not have sex after the baby is born. Now, I'm not saying we should all go into a nursery to get it on, but if the baby sleeps in your room, and you want to use the room for a more recreational purpose than just sleeping, I see no issue with this. And think about it, there are WAY worse things you could be doing with your baby in the room.


“I can only hope that they’ll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects … I hope that every professional gay will say ‘enough’, come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978
