what do i do if my sweetie is hurting me during sex?

dear heather,
heyy what will happen if i’m having sex with my boyfriend and he starts speeding up
really fast and wont stop and he is hurting me? what can happen?

Nevermind what can happen (but I’ll get to that in a second)! Why won’t he stop? Is he not listening to you? I’m assuming you asked him, right? Is he hearing impaired? If so, can he not open his eyes to look at your sign language? If he’s not hearing impaired, then he has absolutely NO EXCUSE for hurting you. The fact that he continues to pound you for his selfish pleasure is a HUGE red flag and I’d urge you to think about if he’s really the kind of guy who you should be hooking up with.

I don’t mean to pass judgment, but when you’re in an intimate and vulnerable situation, which sex inherently is, your partner must and ought to immediately listen to any complaints of discomfort. It doesn’t matter if he’s “in the moment” or telling you “it just feels so good.” Nope. Not one bit. While sometimes it’s OK to put up with a little discomfort, this kind of behavior is really ill-spirited and selfish, and not good traits in a partner for the long haul (and I’d even argue for a hookup!).

|Do you think this kind of behavior is rape? You’d be surprised. Read about what rape really is here.|

If he doesn’t stop, he absolutely could damage your vagina by tearing it, bruise your cervix, not to mention make your entire area very swollen, and too-rough-sex can make it hard or painful to pee, make you feel faint, and make you more prone to a yeast infection and UTI. Make sure you pee as soon as you possibly can after rough sex to get any bacteria out of your raw tissue that might make an infection more likely.

|Here’s how to treat UTI’s.|

Now, for the emotional side effects. If you’re not ready for the kind of sex he wants, it could be traumatizing. It’s not OK for a guy to make you feel subordinate and hurt you in these kinds of situations.

You need to communicate with him when you’re not in the bedroom that you would like to take sex slower, and be sure to have lubrication handy. While that won’t take the pain of him hitting your cervix away, it can help with rawness. I’d recommend you gradually work towards the speedy sex he wants, but in general, I think you should take the lead and not let him take advantage of you. And if he doesn’t listen to you? Done-zo. You don’t need a dude like that.

Henry agrees.

take care,

    welp it happens, you dont stop nagging when we tell you that no we are not going to a restaurant, so why should we stop? You rape us emotionally, we rape you physically if you don’t let us in, all fair game and get over it your vagina is not made from platinum, it stretches just fine.

    • Mandy

      Now there’s a dude who needs a broom handle shoved up his ass long and hard. Your ass ain’t made of platinum either and it can stretch just fine. And I hope it makes you bleed and you can’t sit down for two weeks.

    Hi. I’ve gotten in a new relationship and he different from what im use 2 he has tattoos and smokes weed and is from America and I’m from Trinidad and Tobago . He’s good to me treats me good I like him a lot think I’m falling in love. I had never really had a lot of Sex b4 so when we first had Sex it was painful and he stopped which was sweet. Then as time past and we had more Sex I got used to his size and It became good. I had never had anal Sex and never wanted 2 and I told him this and one day during Sex he holded me down and pushed himself in my ass and it hurted so much i cried and beg him 2 stop but he didn’t he just told me relax and after he was done he went to bathe and came back and had normal Sex with me. I didn’t know what to take from it so I just ignored it. We had normal Sex yesterday from since then and it was good no anal I was enjoying it till he put my legs up and push into me and I don’t know why it hurted so badly I kept screaming and telling him it hurts but I could see it on his face he was enjoying it enjoying me screaming in pain it was like turning him on or something. He finally got his satisfaction and stopped. I don’t kno but it seems to me like my boyfriend likes me in pain during Sex I don’t know why or if it’s a serious thing. I ask him if he likes painful Sex he said he likes freaky Sex so I just said OK. I don’t know if this is a bad thing or not can I get some advice plz.

    I stubbled upon this while googling awake after the fact. In a way im glad to read im not the only one. Me and my boyfriend have been together for 4 years we took a break & gotback together after 3 months. When we got back together I noticed the signs that came with why we seperated before. His eyes are never open when we kiss. His foreplayconsit of placing my hand on his erection while slobing on my neck and then climbs on me and pump away with his eyes closed and he sweats a lot and he breaths heavy. It hurts I cry but he never see it because his eyes are still closed.

      LOL this guy sounds like a real winner. You might as well be a blowup doll to him because he wont even look at you or listen to you while “doing his thing”. Ditch him asap and permanently.

  • lady1

I love him very much but when we make love he does it so hard I cry every time and I ask him to stop he will , but only for literally seconds . My stomach and vagina will hurt for days and a lot of times bleed . He is my first and only and I’m scared to leave him but he doesn’t listen to me . He says sorry and rubs my back and tummy everytime but its not enough . What should I do?

      From the sounds of it, that does not sound like a healthy relationship/ For the sake of your kids, I think you should get yourself out of that bad situation with him. You should make sure you do what’s best for you and your children. If he wont leave you alone then maybe you should go to the police. You should always make sure your children are safe, and if he’s abused you (more than once) then i dont think he’s a good person to be around. I dont think it is normal for him to hit you during sex, not at all. I would maybe tell of your good girlfriends about it and see what she thinks you should do. But with the situation you just described, i think you need to get a restraining order or something to protect you AND your children. Hope everything turns out for the best.

      Contacting the authorities, and/or moving to where he cant get to you. are two possibilities.

    My friend had sex with her boyfriend for the first time and felt scared so even though she said it was ok for him to finnish, he stopped and told her they didn’t have to do that again if she didn’t want to do it too. I think he was showing that he loves and respects her, just because you have had sex once doesnt mean you ever have to do it again … if he beats you and makes you do things you don’t want to that means he is scum and doesnt deserve to even look at you

  • I need some advice fast.Im dating this boy and everything is going fine except one thing he has a really violent temper. He constantly hits me and when he really mad me he will force me to have sex. He makes feel so on top of the world when he not mad but when he is he makes me feel so less of a person. This is not the first time he hit me and force me to have sex with him.

    • funkeechikn

      Dump him! It may be hard, but if he is hitting you and raping you, you need to tell a parent, counselor, or law enforcement official ASAP. Not only is his behavior unhealthy for a relationship, but very illegal. He could seriously hurt you one of these days, and you dont deserve that.

      When you go to break up with him, I would do it over the phone or in a public place, or bring a male freind or family member so he wont lose his temper and hit you again. Make sure that he KNOWS its over, dont be wishy-washy orPlease do yourself a favor and get rid of this guy! Tell the police! Contact a womens clinic for support and advice.

      Try to remember all of the times he has insulted you, raped, or hit you so that it will be easier to report him. Be strong- you deserve a man who respects you and loves you.

      No man has the right to do this to a girl ! Hey Listen no matter how much you love him you gotta let him go for your own good,It's not right that he rapes you and hits you and if I have to say this a 1000 times I will."SOMEONE WHO TRULY LOVES YOU WOULDN'T TREAT YOU LIKE THIS,THEY WOULD TREAT YOU WITH THE RESPECT YOU DESERVE".There are better men out there I know It's hard to find them,but you can't be with someone like this.

      My advice to you is,just get rid of him,you can find someone better that will treat you with respect.

      Good Luck gURL.
