Can a woman with vaginismus be sexually aroused and have an orgasm? Of course!
I can orgasm — does it mean I do not have vaginismus? No, because being able to orgasm does not negate having vaginismus!
Unlike the penis, which is a one-for-all body part (urination, sexual activities), the vagina is not a sexual organ but rather a passageway connecting the uterus/cervix to the outside.
The clitoris – the female’s sexual organ – is located outside (above) the vagina and the urethra.
Do women need anything – finger, penis, dildo – in their vagina for sexual arousal? No, they do not. Women can be sexually aroused by clitoral stimulation without EVER involving the vagina.
Had the vagina been a sexual organ, every tampon insertion would have been a thrill… Every gynecologic exam would have been a delight…
Bottom line (no pun intended): a woman does not have to give up on her sexual arousal even if she has vaginismus or any other vaginal concern that restricts penetration.
