Sex and Sexuality

Pelvic Health 101: Pain & Sexuality: Is it all in My Head?

Fiona McMahon, DPT

Sex should feel good… really, really good. But when it doesn’t, you may start to wonder, what’s wrong with me? Am I broken? Am I a prude? Am I frigid? Painful sex isn’t something we talk about. No one would look at you twice if you walked into work complaining of pain in your elbow, but if you walk into work complaining about pain in you vagina or penis, you may end up having a meeting with HR.

On October 20th at 7pm, we at Beyond Basics are breaking down those taboos and having an educational seminar, followed by an optional question and answer at the end. The event will be hosted by one of our therapists, Stephanie Stamas, DPT, ATC. Stephanie will give a detailed seminar about pelvic health and take time to clear up some common misconceptions many people have concerning their bodies and sexual function.


We sincerely hope that if you are experiencing pain with sex, that you will come visit us to learn more. Our Pelvic Health courses are free and open to the public. If you are interested please register at: We hope to see you soon!
