    sex painful inside, like pulling skin or something?
    An_208261 posted:
    My wife is saying during intercourse, her vagina starts to hurt, like skin pulling or something, she thought maybe it was because of isolating fans running during sex, but we have had fans on before with no issue. This has happens on three to four occasions, and need help please.

    is she wet enough? Do you engange in foreplay before intercourse?
    FCL responded:
    Sounds to me as if she's not getting wet enough. Try using a lube. How old is she?
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    Lube is very helpful, but it foreplay is also very important. While it only takes us about half a second to get ready, it actually takes a woman a full hour to be physically ready for sex.
    FCL replied to WayneLH's response:
    That's why I asked about her age. If she's in perimenopause or menopause she may have difficulty getting wet on her own.

    And let's not exaggerate - an hour to be ready for sex? There may be a few rare cases ...

    If it is a lube issue then I would recommend "Replens" It can be purchased over the counter and it is like a suppository that your wife puts in her vagina.before sex. I find it works well and resembles natural lube that the vagina would normally produce. Give that a try and see if it works for her.
