Hello there superstars! This is a good-news report. (I hope that’s allowed? lol) I posted some time ago about pain with penetration and a possible Hymen of Steel. I saw my gyno yesterday and we talked about this. She took a look and said, “Nope, it’s broken all right, but there is this band of tissue” and pressed it–ouch! “which looks sensitive; what lubricant are you using?”
Oh. Right. Lubricant. Duh. I knew that. Really. I did.
Seriously, it just hadn’t occurred to me, since I’m not with a partner right now–it’s just me and the toys. So she advised me on what to get (Astro-glide), and generally told me another thing I’d forgotten, that the vaginal muscles get tight when they haven’t been used in a while, and advised me on how to start stretching them some.
Just thought you should know there are good, helpful practitioners out there who don’t think you’re stupid for asking basic sex questions like I did.
