my boyfriend and I have recently started having sex, and so far everything's been good. But the other night while we were having intercourse my vagina seemed to be contracting, similar to a muscle cramp. We stopped right away, and he told me that it was starting to hurt slightly for him too. We weren't using lube, since we never seemed to have needed it before; it was just going on a little bit longer than usual (im assuming over 20 minutes, aprox). Could that have been what caused the contraction? Maybe the lack of lube? Or another reason?

The vagina is a muscle, and it's normal to be able to feel its movements sometimes. Sometimes, that can feel pretty distinctly like a grip.

But 20 minutes of intercourse without lube certainly sounds very likely to cause dryness which could make intercourse feel painful or not-so-great.
