All men express different reactions at their wives’ body changes in different ways. Some of them consider growing belly to be very erotic, they like to stroke and kiss it, and they may massage it with great pleasure. However, there are also men, who are so to say afraid even of touching their wives or girlfriends during the whole pregnancy period. This may be either because of feeling of disgust (though it is rare enough), or because of some fear to harm the baby.
It is also possible that a man may experience somewhat lowered sexual desire, just like his wife does.

Moreover, they are to try to fortify their feeling of love and sexual desire with the help of all available methods, however, none of these methods is to do harm either to the woman’s health or to the health of their developing baby.
