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.

I was about to give up and just 'live with it' until thankfully I kept searching online and...

I have been suffering from vaginismus for 5 years and never found the cure to it.
