Apparently Men Think My 'Preggo Bump' Is Hot Stuff's an actual fetish.

Apparently Men Think My 'Preggo Bump' Is Hot Stuff

I am standing in the produce aisle, minding my own business when I hear a voice.

It comes from a thirty something-ish looking Caucasian man.

"Well, aren't you as cute a button. How far along are you?" he enquires.

"I'm about five months," I said .

"You're just radiant. Are you tired?" he asks.

"Thanks, a little," I said.

He then offers to hold my basket, and walks with me as I reach for a pre-packaged bag of Caesar salad.

He has so many questions for me .

"Is it your first?"

"Does your back hurt?"

"Boy or girl?"

"How long have you wanted kids? "

And then a few others .

Eventually I ask him if he has kids. He says not yet, but he loves pregnant women.

He gushes about how beautiful he finds us .

"You're amazing," he adds.

I say thanks so much. But the convo doesn't end there. There are more questions.

"What do you eat?"

"What day are you due?"

Then eventually the two big ones he must have been working towards all along.

"Are you married?"

"Would you like to go to lunch ?"

I say no to both .

But the journalist in me is too curious to let him get away without a barrage of my own questions.

"You want to take a pregnant woman to lunch?" I ask.

He says yes. And I laugh and say O.K. But I explain that I'm a writer and it's a working lunch, because I want to interview him.

We meet the next day and I finally get down to the crux of the matter.

This man has a pregnancy fetish.

I kid you not. That's what he eventually confessed.

"Of all the women in a room pregnant women just shine the brightest, " Tyson said. His name was Tyson.

"Wow" was all I thought as he gushed about the pregnant breasts and the glow and the "amazingness" of the female body.

He is really into this, I thought. I let him touch my bump and ask questions about cravings, reward him for being so nice. He seems over joyed, and overall the working lunch was a success. I had the meat for a new story and my bump had just made this man's day.

But his confession led me to further investigate the idea of pregnancy fetishes. I found that this is more prevalent than one might think. Like, it's a real life fetish. Right up there with feet and bondage are the men who are sexually into pregnant women.

I was stunned.

The fetish is called maiesiophilia. In the book, “Forensic and Medico-legal Aspects of Sexual Crimes and Unusual Sexual Practices,” Dr. Anil Aggrawal said Maiesiophilia is "gaining sexual arousal from pregnant women and/or female childbirth.”

Some extend the fetish to include being aroused by actual impregnation and breast feeding.

As I further perused the world wide web, I found chat groups about the topic and realized that while there are thousands of men who are sexually attracted to pregnant women, there are millions whose desire to be protective increase when in the presence of pregnant women.

On the website , men talked a lot about how seeing pregnant women increased their respect for the fairer sex.

Maybe its some type of universal "daddy gene", but I have been noticing it more and more since my bump began to grow. Men are nicer, more attentive. They hold more doors, ask more "how are you's?" and offer me "be careful's" as I walk down stairs, etc. Overall, people are just nicer to me. And in some ways (whether it's because they think my bump is hot or not), all the human kindness somewhat makes up for the nausea, breast pain, and my shrinking bladder .

So feel free to bring on the love, people. Us "preggo" ladies love it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
