Mike, thanks so much for sharing your story! I think it will help other men to see what you’ve reported – I have heard this same narrative many times because the male partners have had to adapt to a relationship in which vaginismus is present just as much as the women have. You likely got extremely used to manual stimulation and had to relearn new forms of pleasure – which it sounds like you did, very successfully! I am sure your body will continue to adjust as you get more used to intercourse, and as you continue to relax and not worry so much about the outcome. Best of luck to you and your wife!
