I hate Vaginismus

explorations of my own sexuality and women's sexual issues

Name:
bound hedonism
Birthdate:
13 January 1986
This is my little dark corner of the net. I have another livejournal, where I share my normal daily life but you will never find out what it is. (unless you know me very, very well)
This is my journal for the darker things.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with vaginismus. This journal is largely dedicated to my struggle to overcome it. Because of this disorder, I have other issues like lack of sex drive, anxiety and depression. It impacts my daily life and my relationships. I am very interested in the social interactions and expectations that impact womens' sexuality so I'll often veer off on a tangent.

Here are some resources I have found extremely helpful during my struggles:

Vaginismus Awareness Network:

Vaginismus.com (they do sell things, but they have some food info)
