Painful Sex (Dyspareunia)
Pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia) has only received research attention in the last two decades. Most of this research has focussed on women. Whilst understanding women's experiences is hugely important, sex is an interpersonal experience and much less is known about the experience of women's partners. The aim of this research was to better understand how men make sense of and respond to their partner's sexual pain and to increase our knowledge of how men view pain during sexual intercourse influencing the sexual relationship and the relationship in general. This potentially offers helpful insight for practitioners offering sex therapy.
This research was governed by robust policies and procedures to protect participants anonymity. It was approved by the Faculty Research committee, reference number HAS.18.07.208
