John Stamos Says His Post-Baby Sex Life Is Dead, So What Can He Do?

Maybe he should call up Enrique Iglesias for pointers?

By Marianne Garvey

John Stamos says his baby is killing his sex life. And while he and wife Caitlin McHugh want a second baby, they are having some trouble getting around to making that happen.

“We are trying, but the kid is like a c--kblock,” Stamos, 55, said on Live with Kelly and Ryan this week. “Can I say that?”

Sure, why not?

He says his age is a huge factor in wanting to rush a sibling for his son, Billy, who they had in April.

“We try to do it fast, and start hearing this ‘wah wah,'” he added. “He screeches like ‘Saved by the Bell’ and that ruined the mood. We were so close and he’s got this elephant, and he learned how to press it, and it starts singing, ‘Do your ears hang low?'”

Parents magazine says that post-baby time sex (after the recommended rest time from doctor) is even more important now.

"If there is no physical intimacy, or if it's really limited, couples start to feel like roommates, which is rarely a good thing. Feeling disconnected can lead to resentment," it reports. "Start with kissing or touching each other in a loving way, and work your way up to post-delivery sex when you're ready." 

While John Stamos would make quite a distracting roommate, it's true for any couple. 

Mayo Clinic reminds us that there's "more to intimacy than sex, especially when you're adjusting to life with a new baby."

"If you're not feeling sexy or you're afraid sex will hurt, talk to your partner. Until you're ready to have sex, maintain intimacy in other ways. Spend time together without the baby, even if it's just a few minutes in the morning and after the baby goes to sleep. Look for other ways to express affection...Remember, taking good care of yourself can go a long way toward keeping passion alive."

If the new parents can get a minute to themselves (and remain awake), remember, "sex doesn't have to last can be short, sweet."

And with John Stamos.
