I'm kind of afraid my vagina is too small for penis-in-vagina sex. It is uncomfortable for me to stick more than one finger in my vagina, any more and it pushes up against bone. I've expressed this concern to my mother, and she said it didn't sound like a problem, I just might need to use lube. It's not really a moisture issue though, it's actually pressing up against bone. I could live with never really enjoying p-in-vv sex, I masturbate and I have very satisfactory clitoral orgasms, but as a straight girl, I worry about how an inability to be penetrated (or even an extreme discomfort while being penetrated) would affect the possibility of future relationships. Is my vagina too small? Is there any thing I can do about it?

The size of the vagina is not static. The vagina is a muscle, and it expands with arousal. So, when you have tried to insert a finger, have you been doing this when you were very relaxed and aroused?

Gee, our society in general has to bear a lot of responsibility for making so many people feel inadequate for things that are not a problem at all.

The other thing it might be helpful to know is that a lot of people think the vaginal canal is straight, where when you try and insert something while sitting, it should go right in.

However, it's not straight, it's curved, and when someone is trying to insert their own fingers, if they're not pointing them pretty strongly upward, it is going to likely feel like you're pressing against bone or something else very inflexible.

Do you feel like you know a lot about your anatomy? If not, happy to give you some links.

(Of course, it also should be said that the idea that heterosexuals have to engage in PIV intercourse isn't sound. Not all heterosexuals do, some per inability, some by choice or preference. Not all heterosexual sex lives look the same. [Smile] )

also, what is the state of your hymen? It might make the flexibility of the place feel smaller than it really is.
