What does sex feel like for women? Every man has probably thought about that at least once in his life but, unfortunately, since men and women are so different in terms of anatomy and roles in sex, we will never be able to know for sure what sex feels like for the other gender. In fact, sex feels a little or a lot different for every person, so it can be hard to make any generalized statements. That being said, in this article, we will do our best to describe to you what sex is like for women.
What does sex feel like for women?
One of the feelings women like about sex is the sensation of being filled - many women say that it can be very fulfilling to feel their man enter them and fill them, especially during the first few minutes of having sex. A lot of women also enjoy the feeling of being close to their partner both physically and emotionally while having sex - this can be felt especially well in positions like missionary.
Interestingly, a woman’s vagina is not very sensitive to different textures, so even if a guy’s penis is not fully hard, penetration can still feel good for a woman. At the same time, fingers, sex toys and an actual penis feel differently inside a woman and sex with and without a condom can also feel different.
Women also have two major pleasure points on their body - the clit and the G spot. These feel different when stimulated but both can give a woman an orgasm. The clitoris is very similar to a penis in terms of anatomy, so it’s stimulation most likely feels kind of close to what a man feels when his penis is stimulated.
Sex doesn’t always feel good for women
While sex can feel incredible for a woman, it can also hurt and not many men realize this. For instance, it can hurt if there's not enough lubrication, if the woman is not turned on or if her partner’s penis is too large. In fact, while a lot of men wish for a larger penis, most women prefer an average-sized one. Similarly, if a man’s penis is too long, it can stimulate the cervix during penetration, which can feel pleasurable or painful depending on the woman. Penetration that’s too fast or hard can also cause pain. At the same time, even when sex doesn’t feel painful, it can feel very lackluster for a woman. This is often the case when sex becomes boring and routine.
Many women who experience pain during sex or simply don’t get any pleasure from it prefer to fake their pleasure or simply stay quiet and wait until it’s over for various reasons. This is why it is important to create a safe and trusting environment for your partner.
