Vaginismus is an involuntary tightening of the pelvic floor muscles when a woman attempts to insert something into her vagina. It causes an intense burning pain and can make penetration impossible: The vagina may completely clamp up, blocking entry, as if it were a brick wall. Factors that can cause or exacerbate vaginismus include anxiety, past sexual trauma, or a fear of intercourse sometimes stemming from inadequate or nonexistent sex ed. There can also be physical explanations, like complications from pelvic trauma or cysts. However, these statistics are fuzzy because sufferers are often too scared to seek treatment or are misdiagnosed when they do.
Do I Owe It to My Wife to Let Her Sleep With a More Well-Endowed Guy?
My wife complains that sex with me is too painful | Sex | The Guardian
My wife and I have been together for more than three years. The sex at the beginning of our relationship was regular and extremely fulfilling, but at some stage, our problems began. She complains that I am too large for her. Sex is once a month, painful for her and consequentially embarrassing for me. I try to avoid penetration but she insists on it though I am aware this is sacrificial on her part. Please stop having intercourse immediately until you can receive treatment for this problem. Sex should never be continued if it causes non-consensual pain or harm.

One of the perks of having an obstetrician and gynecologist as a friend is you can ask everything — and get informed answers. I remind them that vaginas have been finely tuned by hundreds of thousands of years of evolution to stretch.
