Hi Dishaz – I’d be interested to see a study too, I think I have heard before that there’s a proven link. But also if you think about it, just anecdotally I know that a lot of women with vaginismus often struggle to have orgasms for the simple reason that the pain, anxiety, feelings of shame, etc. that come with having vaginismus make it hard to relax or concentrate enough to experience orgasm. This isn’t always the case (even when my vaginismus was bad I could still have an orgasm from certain types of stimulation), but especially if your association with sexual contact from the beginning is pain, you’ll be less likely to have positive orgasmic experiences.
