i understand that the vagina is stretchy and when a woman is sufficiently aroused, it can accomodate things of all sorts of sizes but, if "tightness" is not an issue, why do so many women feel pain or discomfort their first few times having sex and then don't feel pain anymore after that? are pre-intercourse vaginas really exactly the same as the vaginas of women who have had sex?

Often, it's as simple as the fact that women have heard so much about vaginal intercourse being painful, therefore they tense up in anticipation - and the more tensed a woman is, the more painful sex will be, whereas if she's relaxed, it won't hurt nearly as much, if at all.

And yes, pre-intercourse vaginas are the same as post. The vagina is a muscle - it can contract, loosen up, and go through sex and then snap back to its exact shape. Heck, it goes back to (almost) the same shape after giving birth, and a baby is bigger than any penis out there!

From Ow! to Wow!

Really good article right there. Take a look. [Smile]
