sex pillow review
When Gina Vaynshteyn and Suzannah Weiss of Glamour reached out to me for my opinion on their upcoming sex pillow review for various sex positions and overcoming injury, I was glad to offer some advice. Here is a brief synopsis of the article with a link to the full article below.

Heather Jeffcoat

Make Any Sex Position Hotter - And More Comfortable!

The Big Sex Pillow Review at Glamour UK featuring Heather Jeffcoat

A large portion of what we do here at Femina PT involves various products that are tailor made for specific types of treatment we offer. In our facilities you will see a wide variety of devices and accessories, such as:

  • Pilates reformer and tower
  • Yoga Mats, blocks, towels, bolsters/pillows
  • Therabands and stretching straps
  • Exercise balls and pinky balls
  • Massage guns and vibrating hypersphere and foam rollers
  • Regular foam rollers
  • Peloton bike
  • Treadmill 
  • Normatech compression boots

Of course all of these things serve specific purposes: to make therapy easier and/or more effective.

Let's say you first came to us to help get your sex life back on track, and now you're ready to test out the results - why not take this same approach in the bedroom? Ergonomics are just as important when you're "doing it" as they are when you working out or rehabbing from injury - and this is where a good sex pillow (or two!) can really come in handy - so let's get this sex pillow review started!

The article begins:

Sure, sex is nice. But have you ever gotten it on using sex pillows? As in, a pillow ergonomically designed for either intercourse or solo play, making tricky or awkward angles and new sex positions much more smooth sailing (and comfortable). If you’ve taken yoga classes, you’ve probably experienced something similar: in order to achieve certain poses, the instructor may give you tools, like yoga blocks or blankets. That’s what the best sex pillows aim to do: make sex more accessible, pleasurable, and fun.

Sex pillows are not just for partner play - many of them are great for solo play too. When Gina and Suzannah went looking for reasons why people might be interested in incorporating a sex pillow into their lives, the answers included wanting to improve not just partner play but alone time as well.

And it turns out finding the right sex position or angle for masturbation is a common issue. Sex toy company Dame surveyed 1,600 of its Dame Labs community members, asking which non-vibrating product “would most improve [their] sex life.” Per Dame, “81% responded they wished they could find a better angle when with their partner and/or that they regularly used a spare pillow or cushion to achieve one.”

One of the biggest reasons we recommend sex pillows to our clients is to alleviate discomfort due to injuries while putting the body in position to best enjoy sex. It's an often overlooked aspect when choosing the right sex pillow:

Sex position pillows can be a great addition to the bedroom (or wherever, you do you) especially if, according to Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, pelvic health physician therapist and author of Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve, you have mobility issues. “Pillows are great for modifying positions if you have neck, back, hip, or knee issues,” Jeffcoat tells GLAMOUR. Unlike your typical bed pillow, sex pillows help take some of that pressure off our bodies so sex can be enjoyable, not painful. (Some even serve as a sex toy mount so you can have a hands-free experience, too).

As the article so eloquently states, it can’t hurt to introduce a sex pillow into your love life. In fact, it will likely do the opposite and help you reach all kinds of orgasmic new levels. So click here to see which pillows came out on top in the full sex pillow review at the Glamour UK website. You'll be glad you did! And if you'd like therapy first before getting into some hot pillow action, contact us here to make an appointment with one of our therapists.

When Sex Seems Impossible by Peter Pacik, MD

Have fear and pain stopped you from having intercourse?
Are you unable to use tampons, or feel like they won't fit?
Do you physically withdraw or panic during gynecological exams?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be suffering from vaginismus, a condition that affects millions of women worldwide.

This book offers important medical information and first-person stories, including a new treatment option that has helped over ninety percent of my patients with severe vaginismus overcome this condition to go on to have pain-free, intimate relationships.

My treatment of vaginismus has put me in contact with patients from around the world and many different cultures. While each patient is unique, their stories evoke common themes-the shame of not being able to experience intercourse; guilt over lost relationships; a deep fear that their childbearing years will come and go. The stories shared by these women moved me deeply, and I felt their voices needed to be heard.

When Sex Seems Impossible: Stories of Vaginismus and How You Can Achieve Intimacy provides medical information about this condition and how it can be overcome. Equally important, the book shares the personal experiences of several of my vaginismus patients. These women volunteered to tell their stories in an effort to let their sister sufferers know that they are not alone, and do not need to suffer in silence. I admire them more than I can say.

Testimonials from Patients of Dr. Pacik for the Treatment of Vaginismus:

It has been three weeks and two days since my procedure. I was finally able to achieve intercourse tonight (full penetration)! I have learned so much about myself and my body since the procedure. I woulld highly recommend this treatment to anyone who suffers from vaginismus."

I feel like I have a real marriage now. I feel triumphant!"

Today we finally made love. It was actually incredible. I finally got to connect with him on this amazing level."

Testimonial by S.S., age 54

Heather is the best! I saw her today for terrible hip/groin pain. I was so impressed with the safety measures in place and felt completely safe . Thanks for the healing hands.

S.S., age 54

Testimonial by T.H.

I started seeing Heather in October 2014. For more than two years, I had been suffering from painful urinary tract infection type symptoms after my bartholins gland surgery which included constant burning and urinary frequency sensation that led to more and more painful intercourse. I had made multiple visits to internist, obgyn and urologist's offices, went through a range of treatment with UTI and bladder frequency medication that included antibiotics, vesicare, estrogen cream, but nothing worked.

Testimonial by A.W., age 32

I wanted to let you know that my pelvic floor held strong and gave me no trouble whatsoever in my trail race this morning (12 miles)! In a way, I felt like I ran better than ever because my core feels so rock solid from all the exercises you have me doing. That was especially valuable on the technical downhill - I just flew down the trail because I had confidence in my balance and form. Thank you for helping me get back to doing what I love.

Testimonial by Mary L.

I started seeing Heather to treat my Interstitial Cystitis in November 2016. At this time, I was extremely miserable, in constant pain, and felt as though no one was listening or understood what was going on with my body. I have just finished my last appointment and I can honestly say that my life has completely changed for the better because of Heather and her team of PTs! I live almost completely pain free, and when I do have flare ups, I am able to treat them at home on my own. I am so grateful that this office was recommended to me a honestly cannot recommend them enough!

Testimonial by J.H.

My last appointment with Heather was over 6 years ago but I still think of her every day. I don’t take for granted that I can easily get out of bed, care for my two active and busy young boys, run, play tennis, clean my house, or sit at a desk for several hours at a time. None of these tasks were easy for me before meeting Heather. Eight years ago my car was struck from behind by a tractor trailer that was estimated to have been speeding. I spent 3 years working with different PTs and Drs trying to heal and move on with my life. When I became pregnant and the hormone relaxin that “relaxes” all the joints of the body and the additional weight gain erased all my progress and I was suddenly in a lot of pain again. My OB sent me to Heather for one last try.

Testimonial by Jamie M.

I have been going to see Heather for a while now, and I can't tell you enough how much she has improved my quality of life. Heather specializes in issues like pelvic floor, but I see her for other orthopedic issues.

I have a lot of chronic joint pain and dysfunction issues (back, hips, neck) that require that have ongoing physical therapy maintenance. The effects of my problem joints/areas overlap and interconnect with each other in complex ways, so helping me requires really having a complete understanding of the entire skeletal and muscular system. Pain does not always appear where the problem actually is, the human body is a twisty, many-layered puzzle. I have an exercise program I do at home and I am very functional, but there are just something things I need a PT to help me out with.
