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.

      Heather's unique physical therapy program literally changed my life! After years of struggling with vaginismus, a condition that made it impossible for me to have intercourse and very difficult to use tampons without pain, a gynecologist referred me to Heather. I was nervous for my first appointment, but Heather's professional and friendly demeanor put me at ease. She did a great job explaining each technique she was using to help my muscles relax. Heather uses a combination of internal and...
