Pain During Sex

Too much friction. It could be that you’re not wet enough to enjoy all of the rubbing, bouncing, and sliding that happens during sex. You can solve this by engaging in more foreplay before vaginal intercourse (either with oral sex, touching, kissing, rubbing, etc.). You can also use a personal lubricant (aka lube) like KY Jelly. Lubricated condoms help, too.

    The second time I ever had sex (with the man who is now my husband, but was my boyfriend at the time), he slipped out, but not all the way out. For a while afterwards, we couldn’t even have sex at all, as the pain of him even attempting to put his penis inside me was just too much. I found that putting a pillow under my lower back and butt and using some lube until my body was used to sex solved the problem. Occasionally I do still have some pain during sex, but that’s mostly from my lack of physical abilities.
