Did you know that vaginal pain during intercourse affects nearly 3 out of 4 women and people with vaginas?  For some people the pain is only a temporary issue; for others, it is all they have ever known.

Many people who experience vaginal pain feel broken, isolated, and alone, yet experiencing this type of discomfort during penetrative intercourse is actually MORE normal than not!

There are various reasons one might experience pain during penetrative intercourse, not the least of which is the very simple and “treatable” issue of needing more time to be fully engorged and ready for penetration. It can take anywhere from 20-45 minutes for the vast network of internal erectile tissue of a vagina owner to engorge.

But what happens when we are all juicy and engorged but there’s still pain?

This is where Authentic Tantra® comes in to save the day!

Watch this video where IATE Founder, Devi Ward Erickson shares a step-by-step process for using Tantric breathing and mindfulness to resolve vaginal pain during intercourse.

  1. Beautiful, thank you for sharing! This type of penetrative pain is what I experience regularly post menopausal and I too find the breath work and pausing to be very beneficial.
    Much love and Respect
