NSFW: We’re Talkin’ Sex, Baby

Anyone up for a little dirty talk? Let’s not get it twisted, because in the wise words of Salt N’ Pepa, “…people might misunderstand what we’re tryin’ to say, you know?”

Now, let’s get down to business. 

I’ve come across several articles that discuss how the frequency and amount of sex a couple has, can ultimately determine the sex of your baby. A co-worker and I got to discussing this one day, and she later sent me an article Pregnancy Myths Debunked by Miriam Stoppard

I scrolled through some myths like looking at a monkey while pregnant will cause your baby to come out looking like a primate, and how sitting on a bed cutting something with scissors, will cause your baby to be deformed. #IsThisRealLife?

After picking my jaw up from the floor, I came across how the amount of times a couple has sex, can determine whether you have a boy or girl, and Stoppard states this is actually true, but it has more to do with the speed at which sperm swim.

According to Stoppard, as female sperm swim slower and live longer than male sperm, having sex a few days before ovulation will mean that the female sperm are waiting for the egg. If you have sex right before you ovulate, the male sperm will arrive to the egg faster. 

I’m intrigued, but I suppose a little experimentation will have to be done! Have any of you heard of this theory? Has it proved true for you? What other pregnancy myths have you been told?

Stay tuned for later posts, as I love a little dirty talk.
