Tightly Wound recently released on Iris!
Tightly Wound has been released, watch it today and share it with your loved ones and anyone else who may need more education on vaginismus and pain with sex.
The film follows Shelby’s journey with vaginismus; a condition characterized by involuntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles including the muscles at the opening of the vagina. These contractions cause pain, problems with penetration, and make intercourse very painful and seemingly impossible.
The film has earned an Honorable Mention at the Nashville Film Festival and has been accepted into numerous film festivals in the US and Europe, including the prestigious Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France.
We love this film! It is one step towards destigmatizing women’s sexual health disorders. Share this film with your medical providers, partners, friends, family, and anyone else who needs more education about vaginismus.
Do you have sexual pain? Pelvic floor therapy can help.
