Sex rubbing us the wrong way
Questioner101 posted:
My partner and I have been together for over 4 years yet sex still leaves us both raw. We use lube often but that doesnt always work! Beginning to worry that we just dont "fit"! Help!
Karen Luster, MD responded:
Sound like lubrication works sometimes and sometimes not. Stop and reapply more lubrication if you feel that moisture is decreasing. Use enough until is slippery not just moist. Too much friction can make your raw. If you start feeling like the skin is becoming irritated take a break. If sex lasts for a long period of time, this can result in feeling raw as well. Just think of hours of rubbing on skin can easily irritate the area.
