Sex and Intimacy With Back Pain
"The IntimateRider allows my wife and I to experience intimacy in a new manner and without discomfort.” – James
Back pain can be a difficult obstacle to overcome in the bedroom. Pain and discomfort might affect stamina or make it difficult for you to position yourself. In some cases, even natural body movements during sex can send shooting pain through your back. When sex becomes stressful or painful, your libido decreases. You might also try avoiding sex altogether because you’re worried about pain.
If you’re worried about enjoying sex and intimacy with back pain, or having sex after recovering from a back injury, this article is for you!
Helping You Decrease Back Pain During SexChronic back pain makes many parts of life more challenging; intimacy shouldn’t have to be one of them. Finding what makes you and your partner most comfortable might take a bit of trial and error, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun along the way.
Explore different positions until you find what’s most comfortable for both of you. Positions like side-by-side or rear-entry spooning, for example, are said to put less strain on your back. The “doggy style” position also works well for both partners because it requires less bending and arching. Remember that everyone is different. The key to enjoying sex after a back injury is finding what works best for you and your partner!
Try these other techniques for minimizing back pain and improving your sexual experience:
- Prepare a warm bath to relax the back muscles (invite your partner to join you!)
- Try gentle massage using warm oils
- Use the Rider Cushion for added back support
- Enhance your sexual experience with fun and functional sex aid accessories
Using Sex Aids to Alleviate Back Pain and Improve IntimacySex aids provide people with back injuries or back pain the stability and security needed to enjoy intimacy fully. The first step is communicating with your partner. In the case of sex after a back injury, you should also consult with your doctor about using sex aids for back pain.
It’s only through open and honest communication that you can begin improving intimacy with your partner.
