    Many women find that sex with a new partner can be uncomfortable if his penis is larger than prior partners, if it has been a while since she’s had sex, or if it is her first time having sex. Likewise, many women in long-term relationships can find that penetration becomes painful as a result of age, childbirth and breastfeeding, or a variety of other health conditions.

    In all of these cases, the key to making intercourse more comfortable is lubricant, lubricant, and more lubricant, in addition to getting to the bottom of any underlying health issues for women who’ve noticed a change with a current partner. There are also several positions that can make sex more comfortable, by giving a woman more control over the depth and angle of penetration.

    The best intercourse positions for women who are experiencing pain with a new partner include woman-on-top, side-by-side, the spoon and missionary, in which a woman keeps her legs extended to lengthen the vagina. A grinding motion is better than deep thrusting in all of these positions.

    It’s always good for a woman to be as aroused as possible before attempting intercourse, to take advantage of the changes that occur to her sexual anatomy.  At high levels of arousal, the vagina expands in length and lubrication increases. However, it’s still possible for a woman to be very aroused and lubricated, but feel pain because a partner is so large. In most cases, a woman will adjust to a new partner’s size, but these positions are always a good stand-by for making intercourse more enjoyable.
