Penis & thrusting

Thrusting during intercourse is the rocking movement of the penis in the vagina, done rhythmically as per the male’s arousal.  It is the flip-side of rubbing the penis to arousal during manual sex or oral sex.

How deep does the penis thrust during intercourse? As deep as the vaginal depth allows, as deep as the male’s desire guides him, and most importantly: as deep as it is comfortable for the woman.

Does the penis come out of the vagina during thrusting, as in going in & coming all the way out, in & out, in & out?  Most of you will say a definite NO; the penis does not come out of the vagina but rather stays inside during thrusting.

Surprisingly enough, quite a few struggle with “what is normal,” and who will expect the vagina to endure their repetitive, rhythmic in & out powerful motion.  For the woman, these quick, ongoing penetrations will activate the tightening reflex of the vaginal ring (introitus), giving her discomfort and painful intercourse (dyspareunia) or even vaginismus.

Gentlemen, please respect vaginal endurance and stay inside when you thrust.  And ladies, do not suffer in silence!

    The uncircumcised natural penis after full penetration into the vagina slides back and forth inside the sheath of loose skin called the foreskin as long as it is not pulled back too far. The glans penis protrudes and retracts from the foreskin, gently bumping and rubbing the cervix. The glans is properly an internal organ and is exposed only when the penis is erect.
    Ejaculation of semen is directly on the cervix, encouraging spermal passage through the os (mouth or opening) of the cervix if the cervix is open and cervical fluids are flowing.
    The circumcised penis, on the other hand, tends to pull the sheath tight. As a result, for the penis to reciprocate within the vagina it must slide within the vagina. If lubrication is inadequate for ease of reciprocation both the penis and the vagina may become irritated.
    Circumcision in the ancient form removed a short ring of tissue from the end of the foreskin of a flaccid penis. This, while removing the most sensitive part of the foreskin, did not reduce the amount of skin available for reciprocation by much.
    The pattern of circumcision introduced in the B.C.-A.D. transition period removes the foreskin from behind the corona outward. This si the cause of much trouble and irritation, depending to a great extent on just how much skin was removed.
