Three-Quarters Of Women Are Uncomfortable During Sex
Hundreds of women experience painful s*x, new research has found.
According to a study of more than 1,200 UK adults carried out by Durex, s*xual discomfort of varying degrees affects 73 per cent of women.
One third say the pain is hindering their libido and one in 10 say it’s having an adverse effect on their relationship with their s*xual partner.
The findings also reveal that nine per cent of women have faked an orgasm with a partner and a further 15 per cent have purposefully hurried their partner towards climax due to feeling uncomfortable.
Despite these figures, just 57 per cent of men surveyed said they’ve noticed a female partner feeling uncomfortable during s*x. One of the primary causes of s*xual discomfort for women is vaginal dryness, which Dr Moses Batwala, consultant gynaecologist at The Evewell Clinic in London, says affects 20 to 40 per cent of women aged 17 to 50.
