  • Yes.
    Prostaglandins and oxytocin from his orgasm and yours can push things along.

  • My dr told us near the end to use condoms...so we did that for awhile. Then one night we didn't...and the next day i went into labor.

  • Shay--
    Kissing can do it, nipple stimulation, of course orgasms, but *anything* that releases these chemicals can help.

  • Its not the sex...its the sperm...it has hormones in it that causes contractions.
