maybe this has already been addressed, but I don't recall. Just wondering if you *have* to be aroused to have sex. I know, all the women's sexual lib says we have to orgasm, too. But you know, it isn't required. ;-) Sure, it's a lot nicer to do so, but I can guarantee that you can have sex without it. It's impossible for me, given that upon penetration I'm in varying amounts of pain. Any prior arousal is usually put out like a light right then.

I have found it helps for me to be a bit aroused in advance; the pain is more like major discomfort than sharp pain. I think we've sometimes had sex after I had a orgasm, too.

If only guys could get it in while still soft. But DH says it's like trying to push a marshmellow. It just doesn't work. But it would be more comfortable!
