Feeling new discomfort with toys

By gf69 on Jan 9, 2017 at 11:43 PM

I've used buttplugs and other toys with my boyfriend before and there haven't been any major issues beyond temporary discomfort. Recently, however, I haven't even been able to use the smallest toys without feeling discomfort and pain, even if I give myself ample time (1-2 hours) to adjust. I've used these toys before, so I'm a little worried and confused why they're causing me this discomfort now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Couple of questions for you.

1. Are you using enough lubricant? If so, is it possible that the lubricant you're using contains ingredients that you are sensitive to? For example, many people have a reaction to glycerin or parabens which are both common in store-bought lubricants. I'd recommend Sliquid or Good Clean Love instead.

2. Are you sufficiently aroused? If you're not turned on as much as would be ideal, penetration can be more uncomfortable.
