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!
