Hello, I'm a new member (no pun intended) to the group and I think your site is very interesting. I have a question though directed mainly to the women. How much of a penis can you take without great discomfort during or afterward? My girlfriend gets very wet during foreplay but always seems to get bruised inside and generally sore outside her vagina. She often jokes that I should "cut some of it off" but the fact is I'm not really that big in the first place and she's had longer (about 8 inches). I myself am 7 inches long (give or take a quarter inch depending on the situation), and at my thinnest (my shaft is almost uniform), 6" around with apparently the biggest head she's ever seen. Obviously my girth is more notable (the most she's ever taken) than my length, and I trust her statements on it based on the fact that she has slept with over a dozen men (even enjoying sex with a quite small one) and seen 20+ erect penises . I've been going out with her for about 9 months now (spare me your judgment on that), and I still wonder whether or not her vagina may be smaller than average -- thus explaining her chronic discomfort (and we use plenty of lubricant). She recently saw her gynecologist and the latter was concerned because she was noticeably swollen inside and inquired whether or not she has been "playing with any large dildos lately [sic]". Most guys would take pride in damaging their lovers with their penises, but I'm genuinely concerned for her well being. I've only slept with 2 other women so I can't really compare or contrast their vaginas very well, even though both of them had similar discomfort. However my girlfriend seems to get off from the pain. And she almost always wakes up the next day in a considerable amount of pain (despite herself insisting that I should "destroy" her the night before). Also, she often complains immediately of a burning sensation on her outer labia from the friction. I don't know, can anyone here shed some light on the situation? Why does she get pain if I'm not endowed? Do you women like being stretched a lot? Exactly how big are your vaginas and what can they take comfortably? I want a lot of responses here.
