As a 20 year old woman, I have had roughly 10 sexual partners. Sounds great, except for I have vaginismus.
I can’t tell any men I sleep with. They don’t know what it is, they don’t understand. It’s embarrassing, and it’s painful. I’m a person who craves physical contact, and mentally, sex is something I love. But when it comes to being touched between my legs, it hurts. Every time.
But I’m growing up and embracing myself. I’m researching exercises to treat my vaginismus. I’m not going to fake an orgasm again. Hell, I’m even going to get my VCH pierced to give myself and my lady bits some love.
I’m getting there.
