A woman who has a rare vaginal clamping syndrome has celebrated finally having sex with her husband. Mary Staud, 25, from Texas , was diagnosed with vaginismus not long after trying to lose her virginity to her year-old husband, James. The day after their wedding in , the couple had tried to have sex but Mrs Staud's vagina felt like a 'brick wall'.
There is no one definition of virginity. Others may define virginity as never engaging in vaginal penetration with a penis, despite having had other types of sex, including oral stimulation and anal penetration. Some people may no longer call themselves a virgin after engaging in anal penetration or penetration with a finger or sex toy. Others may reconsider their virginity status after receiving or giving oral stimulation. Oh, the hymen — the stuff of legend. Depending on its size, a hymen can be torn during penetrative sex, exercise, or some other physical activity.
Karen Buono has spent most of her life suffering from vaginismus, a condition that causes the vagina to involuntarily — and painfully — constrict. At 31, she was officially diagnosed with vaginismus, after years of thinking she was imagining things. And after four months of physical therapy, at 32 years old, Karen had penetrative sex for the first time with her husband, Joe Johnson. So we waited a bit and tried again. He said it was like hitting a brick wall and there was just no way he could get it in. But then the same thing happened with other boyfriends when I was in my twenties. They all said the exact same thing.

I can try and help you explain this to him, although I wonder if it is really worth your time. Besides, there is something far more important I want you to hold on to. You are not mistaken. You know your body.
