Today’s post starts with the heralding of NATIONAL MASTURBATION MONTH! Naughty Nurse Kimpy loves this month and wants all her readers to know that none of them need to fear blindness if they choose to celebrate the month hard and repeatedly. After all, masturbation is always consensual, safe and fun, so it totally gets the ANNK seal of approval. If you need more resources on this wonderful month, check out our previous posts on masturbation.

Today’s post starts with some helpful advice from a wonderful ANNK reader:
Hi Naughty Nurse Kimpy, this isnt a question, but I wanted to point something out for all your lovely readers that’s something a bit embarrassing: Recently I saw my GP as I am experiencing bladder incontinence for no apparent reason - I am 21 years old with no children and no other nasties that might be causing it. I was quite embarrassed to ask her but she has now sent me off to have my bladder "re-trained" and I’ve also been given pelvic floor exercises to do - 200 a day!
I'm not suggesting women go straight to the PF exercises without consulting their doctor, but don't be embarrassed no matter your age or if you've had children or not if you have bladder weakness - get it checked out!

You know, no matter what age you may be, pelvic floor exercises, also known as kegels, are a really important way to keep your cooter and bladder in tip top shape. It helps you completely drain your bladder, and also helps you to be a more proactive partner during sex. Thanks for turning your embarrassment into something positive that we can all benefit from.

Faithful ANNK reader BJR is always sending Naughty Nurse Kimpy wonderful resources and references to share with her readers, and this lovely bit of wisdom is a great example. Here’s some research that Kimpy would love to volunteer for! Women’s brains on porn. It explains A LOT. just saying.

Nurse Kimpy has a few more questions about painful sex that didn’t fit in last week’s post, so she’s finishing up her work on the topic today.
Hi :) Basically, when I have sex it's really quite painful. Specifically when I have my legs behind the guys head, and if we're both sitting up, face to face. It's not like there's a lack of lubrication or anything like that, it just sort of hurts... I was wondering if you had any ideas as to why this would be? I'm getting bored of not being able to enjoy sex!

Hi NNK. I have to say, I really LOVE reading your posts! With that being said, I have a question. My new boyfriend and I love to have doggy style sex and it gets a little rough sometimes, which is fine. BUT our pelvic bones clash and after we are done it HURTS bad. For both of us. I am a pretty heavy set girl but am really bony down there I guess. Any suggestions to help ease the pain or prevent it??

Nurse Kimpy feel for both of you, because you’ve mentioned some pretty freaking awesome sexual positions, and it would be a shame if you had to forgo them due to discomfort and pain.

For the first question, Nurse Kimpy wonders if perhaps you might have a tipped or inverted uterus that is the source of your discomfort in those specific positions. She encourages you to consult with your gynecologist to see if that might be the case. It’s also possible that your partner has a larger penis, and that in those positions, it more readily bumps into your cervix or an ovary. That is a big old OW. You might want to experiment a little with your partner, to see if speed or rhythm make a difference in those positions. Give it a good try before giving up completely.

You might just giggle at this next suggestion, but if you truly want to spice up your sex life with more interesting positions, the best place to go is Cosmopolitan magazine. You can find just about every sexual position and then some at their Sex Positions website. Try as many of the positions as you can, and Nurse Kimpy feels confident that you’ll be able to find some positions that are *far* from boring.

It’s a sad fact of life that the doggie style position tends to cause a lot of problems for some women. It’s so easy for the penis to bonk into the cervix or an ovary in that position. It sounds like, however, that it’s your pelvic bones that are causing you specific problems. Nurse Kimpy isn’t clear if it’s hurting you during sex or afterwards... it could be that your pelvic muscles aren’t used to being used in that way, and that the positions makes your muscles and/or ligaments sore. Since you mention that you that you enjoy that position, you could try playing around with variations that get you where you need to go, but with putting less stress on your hip joints.

Nurse Kimpy went straight to the Naughty Nurse Kimpy Sex Lab Assistants to come up with a few ideas for you and your boyfriend to try:

You can also try special cubes designed to take some of the stress off of your joints.

If these suggestions don’t seem to help resolve your problem(s), please let Nurse Kimpy know, and she will do some more research on the topic.
