There are so many prickly parts of chronic pain/illness in a relationship to navigate. There has to be great communication both ways, first of all. So much of time, sex is put off. For so many reasons, but mostly pain. Recently I had a chance to review a book that explained some of the issues surrounding painful sex. Sex releases endorphin’s that actually HELP chronic pain. The problem is multi-leveled. There is the want,frequency, the energy and the pain to say the least.
I reviewed it for Mamalode and they loved it. Wait, you do know about Mamalode right? RIGHT? Well go check them out!
While you are there you can read my book review; Then head over to Amazon and order the book Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve by Heather Jeffcoat It is an investment I promise will help you in the long run.
