“Can we please talk about when men refuse sex because of pregnancy and kids?”
“I’m pregs and my boyfriend refuses. I don’t ever see us having sex again especially when the baby is born. Traditionally it’s the other way around and it feels so isolating and shameful not to have my own boyfriend want me.”
Aimee believed the woman who sent her the message wasn’t alone in her feelings of “isolation and shame”, and so she shared her message anonymously with her 46,500 followers.
The response she received was overwhelming.

Speaking to Mamamia, Aimee said hundreds of women replied with similar stories.
“Some had partners who became physically repelled by their pregnant body, some relationships struggled through the issue but ultimately got their sex lives back, some ended in separation and many just resigned themselves to a sexless relationship while feeling isolated and depressed,” she said.
