As a gynecologist I talk with women frequently about difficulties with intimacy. Sometimes it’s a lack of interest. Sometimes it’s an inability to respond. And sometimes it’s a matter of pain.
What God designed as a means of emotional, physical, and spiritual bonding between husband and wife can sometimes come to involve physical pain. And pain is a serious mood-killer for a woman! You need to find a way to experience sex without pain.
If you (or your wife) struggle with physical issues related to intimacy, listen to my recent interview on Sexy Marriage Radio about getting past the pain and making sex pleasant again.
A woman’s sexual response is a very integrated thing, perhaps more complicated than a man’s. Her body and her mind must be involved, and if either is distracted intimacy will be difficult, painful, or impossible.
