I have been fortunate to do some very exciting things in my lifetime. But helping a young girl to hear for the very first time was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.

The now year-old spent most of her life suffering from a painful condition called vaginismus , which causes the muscles of the vaginal wall to involuntarily constrict upon penetration. 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. Karen turned to alcohol to try and relax her muscles — admitting she used to get really drunk before attempting to have sex. One doctor told Karen about vaginismus but she claims she was told there was no cure. Desperate, she looked for more information online and bought a set of dilators to slowly help her muscles relax upon penetration. But without any direction or proper knowledge on how to use the dilators, Karen struggled to use them properly. Vaginismus is the term used to describe recurrent or persistent involuntary tightening of muscles around the vagina whenever penetration is attempted.
Mary Beth McAndrews explores virginity, shame and awkward realities in the teen movies of our collective youth. Virginity: the pinnacle of teenage success is losing it. Being a virgin is a shame that many try to hide, before then wearing its loss like a badge of honor once it has been taken away. This obsession has been captured in films over and over again, from obscene comedies to over-the-top horror films and somber dramas. For teenage boys, virginity symbolises a lack of masculinity. Boys want to prove their virility, and the best way to do that is through heterosexual sex. In The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love , bell hooks speaks of the rituals of domination that men participate in to assert their own control. The sexual conquests of a teenage boy are an extension of that. What better way to display this strength than by making a spectacle of losing your virginity?
