Introduction. The modern model of the course of the sexual response implies that a woman's sexual response is also influenced by psychosocial factors, such as: relationship satisfaction, self-esteem or negative sexual experiences. In this algorithm, it is personal satisfaction (physical and emotional) that is the goal of a woman's sexual activity. In the sphere of pregnant women's sexuality there are many circulating opinions and there are valuable scientific comments. Frequent treatment of this subject as a taboo has led the authors to undertake their own research.
The aim of the study. The aim of the study was to present selected aspects of pregnant women's sexuality presented in circulating social opinions as well as in scientific commentaries.
Selection of material. The search was conducted in the Scopus database using the concepts of female sexuality, pregnancy, beliefs, psychosocial factors 1990-2018. The literature found in the Google Scholar database was analysed for the highest number of quotations. The literature selected in this way was used as the material for this work.
Conclusions. All married couples approach sexual intercourse during pregnancy in their own way: some have pleasure, some do not, others would have much satisfaction, but they cannot have intercourse for other reasons. In all cases this problem should be treated naturally. However, there are stereotypes about sexual intercourse during pregnancy in doctors and the general public.
