jessicas_72bwI was pregnant for the first time fourteen years ago (no that is not me at left, more on her later). I remember driving in my car and listening to two male talk show hosts trying to be funny. At some point, one of them tried to ?shock? the other one, and their audience, by bagging on a female celebrity that had been photographed naked and pregnant. I believe ?oh gross? was the phrase repeated more than once, delivered with as much revulsion as they could muster.

Now flash forward to the present. I?m working at Babeland, contemplating how to infuse our Moms' Blog Event with� a bit more visual sexiness. I suggested a few classic photos of pregnant nudes. I wasn?t met with revulsion this time, but a younger coworker scoffed at the photos calling them ?cheesy.?

Both reactions irritated me, though the reasons for them couldn?t be farther apart. The shock jocks couldn?t envision a sexy pregnant woman, yet twelve years later these photos had become so ubiquitous that a coworker was also unable to find them sexy.

As one of a million moms who took a photo of herself naked while nine months pregnant, I want to set the record straight. Pregnant women are sexy, damn sexy. One of the things that makes them sexy is this simple act of exhibitionism--posing naked for the camera. At that moment, a pregnant woman proudly reveals her full, gorgeous, robust, blossoming body, even if the photo is only intended for an intimate few.

demimooreI believe pregnant women have always taken these snapshots, but it wasn?t until the early Nineties that we started to see them reflected back at us in the media. Most of my generation remembers Demi Moore?s provocative and controversial nude on the cover of Vanity Fair. It was empowering and hot. So what if today these shots have become something of a clich�, I welcome that. A woman?s sexual self-image goes through such a sea change when she becomes a mom that this first act of sexy motherhood will be something she will always remember and cherish. I wanted to include my photo here, but didn?t have the time to look through boxes of old photos (pre-digital camera!). But I remembered a friend who?d showed me her gorgeous pregnancy photo all those years ago, and she kindly offered to let me use it today. (photographer credit: Victoria Yee)

So I invite all moms, whether you?re blogging or not, to send me (anne@babeland.com)� your sexy pregnant photo and I?ll post it here. Or post yours on your site and link to this piece. You are beautiful!
