Sore dick after we have sex

Written by SHFPACT. Posted in About Sex

My boyfriend's dick gets sore after we have sex.

Sometimes it's so sore that we can't have sex for days. I was wondering if this is normal, or am I just not turned on enough? He does have a pretty big dick and sometimes it hurts when he puts it in, bit I was just wondering if everyone else experiences these problems?

The most likely cause of your boyfriend's soreness is probably just physical friction (rubbing). This can be alleviated by using plenty of lube (a water based lubricant, like 'Wet Stuff') before intercourse. You can also add more during sex if you feel it is needed.

You probably are producing some natural lubricant from your vagina. However, women vary a lot in the amount of wetness when sexually aroused, and it might vary throughout the menstrual cycle. It is possible for a woman to be highly aroused and to produce very little lubricant. Regardless of how much lubricant you are producing, the use of extra lube will help alot.

You may also want to spend more time enjoying foreplay before intercourse. Starting off slowly and building up your excitement may help both of you to 'warm up' before sex. Time spent exploring your sexuality in ways other than intercourse can be just as intimate and exciting (and hopefully less painful). You could also experiment with different positions during intercourse to find out what is most comfortable for both of you.

If your boyfriend continues to experience pain, or has any other symptoms, it would be worth getting checked out by a health professional, to make sure there are no physical problems.
