  • Hey I have a question about therapy? Is online therapy still as safe as in person therapy? My parents r worried about my interest in online therapy bc they’re nervous about scammers which is valid. But I haven’t gone this whole quarantine since March without a therapy session and I’m not comfortable even with the tools given to me. I miss my old therapist but he’s going to retire this yr. so how and what are the best ways to transition to one therapist to the other? Do I have to start from the very beginning, bc that’s a lot of info? Thanks for reading!

  • 4:10 Women ARE NOT, on average, “slower to get aroused and lubricated than men”.

    Studies, initially using IR cameras, but later precise sensors, ALL found that women took no longer to reach any stage of arousal in response to visual stimuli than men. In addition, when self-pleasuring sans edging women took no longer, on average, to achieve orgasm (e.g. 65% in under 3 minutes).

    At the heart of this misconception is comparing apples to oranges (e.g. erections vs lubrication). For example, women get clitoral erections actually slightly faster than men, and men produce peak lubrication (pre-cum) with the same average delay as women. In short, comparing an initial stage of arousal of one gender (erections) to a later stage in another (lubrication) makes no sense.

  • between the other problem is oxalic acid in food, look up Sally Norton and her experience!!! Oxalate is a crystal that loges into tissues and can cause pain.

  • This information is so needed to be provided! Thank you for a wonderful lovingly presented video! I am very fortunate to have been sent to a gynecologist who specializes in women with post menopausal problems. He directed me to additional sources of information and “supplies” and he has physical therapists who work in his office who are also specialists. It is time for these issues to be brought out into the open and for men and women to have access to healthy education. You are such a gift to all of us who subscribe to your channel. Sending you and each of your daughters big hugs!

  • Some women endure painful sex for years and years. It burns physically. Emotionally, I imagine self harming or floating up out of the room to escape.

  • I would have liked to offer a dollar per month on Patreon.
    “The minimum price for this tier is $3.00”
    Not looking for perks. I like your channel and what you do.

  • I hate this myth that women take longer to get aroused than a man.
    This is pretty much nonsense IMO.

    Basically if you’re not naturally lubed, you’re just not into him. You might even have thought you loved him. But your body is saying otherwise

  • Amazing Book to read: * “ Restoring the Pleasure by Joyce Penner and Clifford Penner”. It’s so informative and detailed, highly recommend it!

  • I’m so glad awareness is being spread about this little-known topic. I had vaginismus as a young bride 25 years ago and got over it. The journey wasn’t easy but it is possible. I now have 4 kids ����

  • Hi, I used a product called vagi-wave to help me. I tried all sorts of things before this hypnotherapy visits to clueless gynaecologists etc. There is loads of things on this website which may help.

  • I’ve been in a functionally sexless marriage for twenty years due to this condition. I know there are treatments, but the issue is my wife has severe avoidance about addressing this. She becomes extremely defensive, and actually (verbally) violent and cruel when I force the discussion every six months or so.
    Thank you for addressing the issue, but as a man looking for resources to deal with my situation, forgive me, but this is yet another base level explanation for someone who’s never heard of the condition.
    I’d love someone to address the avoidance issue that comes with vaginismus. The base emotion is fearfear of pain, fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of judgement. My wife will NOT engage in even discussion about this.
    How do you support someone you love who has this condition, who is unable to confront her fear enough to get treatment.
    Thank you.

  • This content needs a serious update. The issue of women’s sexual arousal is really not emphasized enough nor talked about. Sex is painful when the woman is not turned on and hardened yes, a woman’s clitoris needs to be aroused, too! Oftentimes the pain doesn’t need to be “treated” at all but simply either the moment or the the partner or both is wrong! Women are often raised not to listen to the cues coming from their bodies, or ignore the fact that they are not turned on enough it takes more time than for men and their partners rush and force themselves upon women. Even if enough talking is involved and things are not rushed, the chemistry still might not work and women’s bodies are not aroused enough. The result is painful sex for women and/or no orgasm. So really before we start to talk about “vaginismus” diagnoses, we really need to make sure that the precondition not only wetness in vagina/vulva but also hardened clitoris was met in the first place! This is really important and never the be merely assumed or dismissed in sex education, as female arousal and pleasure sadly is even today. It would be really important @TherapyinaNutshell for you to edit this video accordingly! Otherwise, by talking about vaginismus, you are uncounciously supporting a very harmful Christian fundamentalist bias of pathologizing and diagnosing wives who cannot have sex due to ‘vaginismus’, which in fact just a mismatch in body chemistry of the couple: a female body saying no to their husband’s body. Oftentimes this happnes when sex is taking place only after the marriage. There is no need for treatment or diagnosis there if the women are not turned on.

  • This is not a pertinent subject for me. But I appreciate that you are addressing it. And I just listen to all your stuff because it’s educational. and many things I share with others. And there are topics that you address that I have found helpful. Like the brain rewiring, trauma recovery, dealing with anxiety videos. And I REALLY appreciate your inclusion\respect of a person’s spirituality in dealing with issues.

  • never had a loss of libido when I finished menopause because I all had left was high normal testosterone but it also made me irritated and angry. I had to add back estrogen and progesterone. My mom went through the same drop too.

  • This is a real thing. I know a lady who had pain for a long while. Hormone treatment.
    I dated a virgn years ago. I never really understood what turned her into a tiger. She was shy. She consulted a doctor and something changed. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor for help.
