Dilation and Water - Mortal Enemies? [Oct. 23rd, 2008|03:16 pm]
Male to Female, however you choose to say it


I've noticed in the past that if I get water in my vagina (say, for example, I stick a finger up there in the bath), any subsequent dilation is harder for a short while. The water seems to *increase* friction and tighten things up in there, and I guess it probably washes the lube off too (I use aquagel which is water based).

Yesterday afternoon, I went swimming and did a thousand metres, breast stroke. Yesterday evening I dilated, and had the hardest time getting the stent in that I've had for ages. I had to really shove it, which was a little painful, despite relaxing the pelvic floor muscles. Everything was just so incredibly tight and tense up there.

Anyone else get anything similar?

Perhaps an idiotic response, since I haven't had that particular problem, but would tampons help in the future? Or are they impractical?

Looking at my cis female wife. She's shaking her head on this one.

Would they blow up like a balloon as soon as you got in the pool?
