Dear Emily,painful sex blog sex with emily

I’m a late bloomer when it comes to masturbation and having orgasms. (I didn’t even know that women could masturbate until I was in my twenties!)

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’s kind of painful (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?

Sincerely,

Leslie, 27

In honor of the importance of lube, here are some real life testimonials on how lube has ben a sex life game changer.

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.
