The vagina is a flexible canal that can stretch to accomodate a penis, a hand, sex toys, even an infant's head.
However, how flexible it is at any given time or in any given situation varies.
When it comes to intercourse, for most people, what stands in the way of not just a penis fitting, but also that feeling good, is lack of enough arousal (being very turned on, usually also from other enjoyable sexual activities before intercourse), relaxation and lubrication.
How are any other kinds of sex you two are engaging in going? Are those other things feeling good? Are you getting good at communication about sex between you, including talking about what does and doesn't feel good? Do you know when you really feel turned on AND relaxed? Are you comfortable talking about things like lubrication, like doing things before or during intercourse so everything feels good, etc?
