Thank you so much for making this post and explaining how to handle this stuff. I have Vaginismus, which is a pain disorder that makes it really difficult and painful to have penetrative sex, and I've struggled with accepting the condition for years. You're absolutely right, intimacy even though it's not intercourse is incredibly important and valuable to relationship.

Hi, thanks for your response. It's always nice to know I'm not alone in this. I'm currently seeing a sex therapist for talk-therapy, since I tend to get into really negative thinking patterns when sex doesn't wind up working.

I've been considering seeing a physical therapist but it's such a pain to schedule an appointment, I don't think it's covered by my insurance, and my gyno doesn't want to give me a referral because I'm able to have pain free sex every now and then. It's just such a pain.
