Although physical stimulation is a common part of the orgasm picture, it isn’t everything. Even the most pleasurable forms of touch don’t always lead to orgasm unless a person is feeling psychologically stimulated or aroused, or concentrating on sexual ideas or thoughts, as well.
Some men have very small erect penises and others have very large erect penises, with most men being somewhere in the middle with an erect penis around 4 to 7 inches long. There are also considerable differences among men in terms of how thick their penis is, how much semen they produce and the coloring of their genital skin.
Some women who lubricate quite a lot enjoy it or look to it as a sign of their sexual excitement. Other women find that it may be enjoyable up to a point but that too much lubrication can interfere with vaginal sensation or their ability to “feel” their partner during intercourse.
Because the genitals are kept in a warm, moist area, under clothing, and can be exposed to urine and fecal matter, they sometimes require special care so that cuts, tears or chafing heal well and the potential for pleasurable sensitivity returns.
The glans clitoris sometimes seems to fuse to the clitoral hood. Changes to the structre of the vulva, whether to the clitoris or the vaginal lips, can occur as part of menopause, when estrogen levels decrease, or as a result of a genital skin condition such as one called lichen sclerosus.
It’s unclear how many people act sexually during their sleep but when it does happen, people often don’t even know that they masturbate or attempt to be sexual with other people until they either approach someone for sex while sleeping or until they begin sharing a bed with a partner.
Women’s genitals are quite sensitive; as a result, it’s not uncommon for women to occasionally notice genital itching or burning. Depending on the details of this sexual encounter, you may have experienced vaginal burning for any number of reasons.
It can be difficult to talk to a sexual partner about genital odor, particularly since many women and men are sensitive about how their sexual partners perceive their bodies. People generally want to feel attractive, desirable and sexy to their partner – and feeling as though they smell bad can make it hard for them to feel desirable.
Many women have questions about their size and shape of their genital parts – and quite a few women have wondered, like you, if their masturbation has played a part. There is no “standard” size of shape to women’s labia and neither masturbation nor partner sex are what shape a woman’s genital parts.
I’m 25 years old and I don’t have sex often, but I have masturbated every day for about two years now and I feel so guilty about it. I’m scared, too, because I’ve heard that masturbation can cause health problems or physical damage. Is that true?
I had unprotected sex about a month ago. Then this week, I noticed what looked like a pimple on the shaft of my penis. It popped on its own and had pimple ooze come out of it, like a regular pimple, and now it is almost gone. This made me scared that maybe it was herpes instead of a pimple. Could this be possible?
For years I was with a man who had a very large penis. We broke up and now I have met a man who does not have as big of a penis. Although we haven’t had sex yet I feel like that when we do my vaginal size will be much looser to him. Is that true? Will my vagina be stretched out from my ex?
