Sexual intercourse

Sexual intercourse is defined as all sexual contact to satisfy the sex drive. Other names for this are: coitutus, copulation, cohabitation, mating and society. Sexual intercourse is the penetration of the penis into the vagina.

Explanation

Sexual intercourse begins when the erect penis is inserted into the moistened vagina. Friction of the penis against the vaginal wall creates stimuli that can be amplified by emotional factors. This includes seeing certain things or hearing certain words. Due to the friction and possible emotional factors, an orgasm eventually occurs. In women, it is sometimes necessary for the clitoris to be extra stimulated in order to achieve an orgasm.

Pain during sexual intercourse

Sometimes pain makes it impossible to have sexual intercourse. This pain occurs most often in women, but men can also experience pain during sexual intercourse. In women, one of these forms of pain is the well-known vaginismus . A bladder infection can be a cause of pain in both men and women. In men, a venereal disease can also be the cause of pain. It is important to indicate when it hurts, for yourself and for your partner.

Vaginismus

Women with vaginismus have a problem with sex. However, not every problem with intercourse is vaginismus. This is something to remember because many problems are immediately attributed to vaginismus. Vaginismus is the tightening of the muscle around the vagina, so that nothing can get in. No penis, no finger or no tampon. This usually happens out of fear. The solution sometimes lies with therapy and rarely with surgery. Often the cause of vaginismus is unknown, which also makes it difficult to treat.

Cystitis

Cystitis can cause pain during sexual intercourse. Both in men and women. The solution lies in a course of antibiotics, which must be completed completely. Drink plenty of water to flush away bacteria. Do not hold the urine for too long and empty the bladder completely when urinating.

Venereal disease

A venereal disease can also cause pain during sexual intercourse. Both in men and women. A venereal disease is also transmissible, so pay close attention to this. A venereal disease that is not treated can worsen and ultimately lead to infertility. If you suspect a venereal disease, it is best to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Holding back orgasm

When the man tries to hold back his orgasm, the penis is stiff for too long. This often causes pain. Therefore, do not hold back the orgasm for too long. Ultimately, the penis can also weaken again due to holding it back for too long.

Frequency

Couples who just met each other sometimes make love every day. On average, couples have sex 1 to 2 times a week. Couples who have been together for a while and have children only have sex once or twice a month on average. Sex has then made way for other things. When these couples break up and meet another partner, sex suddenly appears to be at the forefront again. Older people also have sex less often.
