Guiding the penis?

Posted by womentc in Vaginismus Blog 27 May 2009

Do women need to guide the penis toward their vagina when having sexual intercourse or can the penis find its own way in?

Generally speaking, the penis has a built-in GPS and can find its way without guidance, aided by the V-shape of the pelvis that funnels the way toward the vagina.

That said,  reality demonstrates that there are different strokes for different folks:

  • Some women always guide while others never do, or only do with certain partner and/or in certain positions.
  • Some men prefer to guide themselves while others like to be guided (the touching adds to their sexual arousal).
  • Women with vaginal difficulties (vaginismus, dyspareunia, menopause, after radiation) would always prefer to guide the penis so as to  minimize undue pain or irritation.
  • Men with Peyronie’s disease will usually need guidance.

The most important point is not whether the penis needs guidance but rather what is needed for a comfortable, enjoyable, safe and consensual sexual intercourse.

Ladies, you have the final say in the matter being that the penis is a visitor inside your vagina!
