When my boyfriend has tried putting his finger into my vagina, he says he's felt that if he moves it he pushes against something hard, that it doesn't feel like a muscle, it feels more like a bone. I've felt it too; it doesn't necessarily feel bad, it just feels like it will not move past that point; but sometimes I feel it's more to the sides of the vagina. He says that he's worried because if that really is a bone, there's no way he'll be able to fit his penis in there.

Although it's getting better, I still feel a bit tight. Could it be that I'm not relaxed enough and it's my cervix that we're feeling int there? Is there a possibility that it's anything else?

Well, if he's pushing aginst the front wall of your vagina, it may very well be bone that's he's feeling: you can feel the pubic bone that way.

And if that's the case, then the reason his fingers won't go further is because things don't go any further in that direction.

If he were pushing hard against your cervix, you'd likely feel it, and it usually doesn't feel so great: the cervix is pretty sensitive.

It might be helpful to remind him that the vagina is a curved canal, not a straight line? The penis adapts to that pretty easily, but if someone isn't remembering that when they have fingers in there (and curving their fingers accordingly -- a pokey stright finger is generally no vagina's friend) you can wind up confused with this.

(It might be worth printing him out a copy of the female anatomy article?)
