Is It Possible to Be ‘Too Wet’?

What’s the short answer?

Can pigs fly? Can mules give birth? Can you get blood from a stone?

Can a vagina get too wet during sex?” is just as absurd a question, worthy of being added to the list of Idioms of Improbability.

So, you can’t get ‘too wet’ during sex?

N-O-P-E!

It is, however, possible for the vagina to produce too much fluid (i.e., vaginal discharge) in nonsexual settings, but we’ll get to that below.

Is wetness important?

Without wetness, the rubbing can irritate and even cause little microtears in the delicate vaginal tissues, which increases the risk of infection.

      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...
