Ashley Graham refuses to let the passion within her marriage to 31-year-old filmmaker Justin Ervin die down just because she’s pregnant, but admittedly needs some technical advice on making love while with child.
“I feel like every relationship goes in waves of sex,” Graham, 32, told Vogue in her January cover story. “You’re like, ‘Hey, do we need to plan this?’ And now, with pregnancy, things have been really different.”
For Graham, positions she used to find enjoyable are simply awkward to execute nowadays, adding, “Because there’s this huge bulge that can be sensitive if you lay on it or go into a new position. I’ve been literally asking every single one of my friends who have had babies or who’re pregnant, like, ‘What positions do you guys do?’ This has to be a normal conversation among mothers.”
Friends like Amy Schumer were able to provide Graham with a bit of parental feedback, inviting the model to her home to check out the nursery for her 7-month-old son Gene.
“I was like, ‘Come over and I’ll just tell you what I have learned and what I wish I knew,’ ”the comic told the magazine. “‘Cause it’s a lot. People are so in your face when you’re pregnant because they’re so f–king excited for you. And you don’t get it. You can’t possibly get it. And then after you’ve had a baby you’re like, ‘Oh, I get it!’”
Serena Williams — who shares 2-year-old daughter Alexis with husband Alexis Ohanian — has also been a great help to the expectant mother.
“I text her anything that rolls off my mind,” Williams said. “I was one of those people who wanted to know every ugly detail of what happens … down there … what happens everywhere. Like, why are my nipples so big a week into being pregnant? This makes no sense; the baby doesn’t need to eat yet. I wanted to know every single thing, and I still love talking about it.”
