A Pregnant Woman Is Fighting With Her Friend Over a Hurtful ‘Joke’ About Her Sex Life & Reddit Stands By Her

Talking about sex during pregnancy can be intimidatingly vulnerable, even among close friends. It’s common to not feel sexy, confident, or turned on while pregnant, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of, either. Unfortunately, one pregnant Redditor was on the receiving end of a hurtful joke from a friend after opening up about her sex life — and now, both women are beefing.

Writing in the infamous /AmITheAsshole Subreddit, user @litzu4863 gave this context: She is halfway through her pregnancy, and recently, she was talking with a few friends “about pregnancy and the weird stuff that nobody really talks about.”

“I mentioned that I was finding it awkward to be intimate with my partner since I haven’t been feeling confident in my new body, and I don’t really feel attractive or sexy,” the Original Poster explained. “One of my friends’ only comment was, ‘Poor guy.'”

AITA for "embarrassing" my friend?

Ouch! Way to shift the focus from your friend’s very real insecurities to her partner.

As OP explained in an addendum to her post, the comment was made “in a judgmental tone” — which is exactly what she didn’t need in the moment. “Me and my partner are still being intimate. My only point was that I was having a hard time adjusting to my new body,” she said.
