What will the penis hit?

These are common concerns of women as they begin to experience penetrative sex (intercourse); these questions and worries are there because the vagina is an invisible canal. The woman cannot observe what is ‘there’ nor what happens when the penis slides in and thrusts.

  1. For vaginal depth, read our other post, Vagina – endless?
  2. Should you need to guide his penis in?  Read Guiding the penis?
  3. The uterus sits at the end of the vagina, and its bottom opening – the cervix – is the part that the penis will tap during thrusting, an alignment that is natural and designed to function just so.  Please read our other post, Hitting the cervix.
  4. How deep will he go? As deep as your vagina allows; as deep as is comfortable for the (receiving) woman; as deep as your and his physiques allow; as deep as the passion asks for…  Men can adjust their penetration depth, so ladies, you must speak up your preferences so the sexual event will be free of stress or pain.
