    just thinking today lol, i found out yesterday what a sweep was due to one of the posts someone had made here, surely if u have deep enough hard enough sex thats kinda the same thing, u'd have the same effect? would u?

    lol, just got me thinking :blush:

    Its actually the semen that helps soften the cervix :) The hormones in it anyways...

    Although the sex alone may irritate the cervix enough to start something happening.

    I was hoping it was the same myself to save me getting the fingers up me by some woman. It sounds logical enough though. And sex is reccomended to bring on labour at the end.

    Having a sweep is nothing like sex. It is a lot more unpleasant! And i dont think it could be done with a you-know-what :rofl:

    Honestly though, when you get to the stage where you need a sweep, you wont give a toss who it is sticking their fingers up you :rofl:
