Heather Jeffcoat on 6 Sex Positions to Try if Sex Is Painful

Sex should never hurt, of course. But painful sex is a common enough issue that it actually has a medical name. Dyspareunia, or painful intercourse, is any persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs before, during, or after penetrative sex, and it may affect 8% to 20% of women according to some studies.

The article and accompanying video details six different sex positions to try if painful sex is an issue:

  • Woman on top - allows you to control the pace and depth of penetration
  • Spooning - allows the woman to control the depth of a thrust by raising or lowering their leg
  • Outercourse - penetration is not necessary to have great, orgasmic sexual experiences
  • Doggy style - a great position for women to try if they have pain at "6 o’clock"
  • C-spot sensations - lie on your stomach and have your partner approach you from behind, but encourage him to remain still
  • Chair twerking - when deeper penetration is what leads to pain, play with positions that allow for shallow penetration

The full article and video are here.

      A personal journey and testimonial from one of my patients: I was diagnosed with vaginismus 4 years ago. I never heard of such medical condition until after I got married. At first my husband and I didn't know what to do, we didn't know what the issues were or how to overcome it. Being born and raised in Armenia and being Christian I wasn't that open about talking to sex with others and so it wasn't easy to seek help. But eventually I went to an Ob-Gyn and luckily she knew about the medical...
