After watching the 20/20 episode, I was reminded how much i wanted to see Orgasmic Birth! I went to their website and as of Jan 1st, it is available to purchase thru their site or amazon.com. I had an amazon.com gift card, so i could not resist. It takes 10-15 days for shipping it said. I cannot wait.


Link to purchase.

here is a link to the trailer:

Thanks so much for sharing. I've been really interested in seeing it and I think I'm going to go ahead and order a copy. I'm not sure that I'm ready to watch it yet, but a friend of mine has had several orgasmic births and I'm really eager to see more about it.

Thanks so much for sharing. I also missed the show, so I might order a copy myself. I'm so curious to know more about how these women achieved their orgasmic birth...oh to be so lucky!!! haha

they interviewed one of the filmmakers of Orgasmic Birth in the 20/20 segment and they said 21% of women who do NCB have an orgasmic birth. The odds are pretty good

DH & I just watched it, it came in the mail today! It was good. It was very similar to The Business of Being Born and really just repeated a lot of that film, with the added info of the orgasms some women have during child birth. I think I may have liked Rikki Lake's movie better This movie was good but nothing ground breaking or earth shattering, imo. I think i liked TBOBB better because you really got to know the people profiled in the movie better and the you got to know a couple of the midwives better than OB. Overall it was good and enjoyable and I liked it and am glad I saw it. Once I lend it out to everyone i know, i will donate it to the Birth Center.

shanna where have you been?!?!?!

anyways, i wish i would have seen 20/20. i know the soup made fun of it and i was actually offended. i don't get why people couldn't imagine an orgasm happening during birth, it uses all the same parts as sex.

i am going to have dh dl the documentary. i am interested now.

ummm Ok I think I want to see this. But the something about it puts me off....I guess I'm all for natural and Lord knows I love my Os and all that but making childbirth a sexual thing --i don't know just doesn't set well with me (or am I off on what the movie is about?! I'm just guessing by the name). Don't get me wrong I LOVE my Os! But idk its just seems weird to be trying to do something sexual and at the same time something to do with my kid at the same time. (oh and YES I couldn't think of DTD as BDing while trying because it was to weird for me also--maybe its just my issue LOL)
Anyone else just a little weirded out by the combo?

My understanding of it is, it's something that just kind of happens, not something that you seek out (at least the first time, lol). I think it is caused by the high levels of oxytocin and the pressure in the vagina.

It was more about how natural child birth could be a wonderful, and in some cases, a pleasurable experience. They discussed that the hormones released in the brain during NCB are "love hormones" that are also released during sex. Also, the birth canal and the same place that we find pleasure during sex and it is something coming thru there and all the same nerve endings. It also talked briefly about looking at it as "sensation" not pain and rethinking how you look at the process, compared to Hollywood where the woman is screaming like she is being tortured to death

I will say, there was not enough orgasm in the movie! I thought the title was a tad misleading. It was kinda like TBBOB + a little extra about orgasm

My DH unfortunately was a bit uncomfortable about the whole "intimacy" between some couples during the labor process. That makes me a bit sad and I hope he gets over that, because I think it can be a beautiful thing and something that should be shared between SOs. I am definitely TONS more hippy than him, but I am working on him

Wait until i tell him about vaginal and perineum massage prior to delivery
