Hi ladies. There is an excellent book that’s been in the New York Post, on the View, etc. that’s called Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of my Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman. The book is all about vaginismus and I commend Deborah for having the courage to write about this.
One quote from the book:
(p. 172) “The days after my wedding, which should be the happiest of my life, become consumed by the effort to consummate my marriage. But, as each effort results in failure, Eli becomes more and more anxious, and as a result, his family exerts more and more pressure on us to be finished with it. By the third try, Eli can no longer muster any eagerness from his own body and I cannot submit to something that isn’t there.”
I would encourage you all to read it and welcome your comments.
