On today’s show, Emily is joined by pelvic floor physical therapist Heather Jeffcoat, author of Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide To The Sex Life You Deserve to talk about the importance of pelvic floor health for everyone.
In the dynamic pool of dating and more, it goes without saying no two couples are exactly alike.
Between different interests, goals, temperaments and zodiac signs – it’s a wonder how we’re ever able to wade through the crowds to find a companion who suits our fancy. But for as unique as each of us are, somehow couples often manage to find themselves up against the same relationship ruts.
Mmmm, masturbation. One of the pinnacle peaks of that self-love journey. We asked y’all to bring the fire with your testaments on the Benefits of Masturbation Contest and we have to say all of you burned the place down in a blaze of passion.
Q: Dear Emily,
Now I’m figuring out what turns me on, what movements I like, and what doesn’t work. I even have a wonderful partner who is totally on board to help me figure it out.
Sometimes when I masturbate, or when my partner fingers me to climax, this weird thing happens: My body spasms, and it kind of…hurts (usually in just the pelvic area).
I can’t hold my vibrator to my clit any longer or I push my partner’s hand away, even though I feel that I could have gone deeper into the orgasm. It totally keeps me from just melting into the experience.
I’m wondering if I’m pushing myself to climax before I’m fully warmed up? Is that a thing? Or is this a serious issue that I might have to get looked at?
I consider myself to be a very open person sexually. I love trying out new things in the bedroom and playing around with different positions. My absolute favorite is doggy-style. The problem is, I always seem to experience a lot of pain when I do it. Is this normal? I should probably add that my last few partners have been pretty blessed in the size department. Is size a factor here, as well? And more importantly, how can I make it less painful so I can experience the pleasure? Thanks, love your podcast!
