Question: Shelly (12-14) asks…
Whenever I think of sex my body begins to hurt, why?

Answer: What do you mean by “hurt”? I assume that you don’t mean that it’s painful to think about sex. Perhaps what you are feeling are tingles or perhaps some vaginal spasms? By spasms I mean like muscular contractions, which would feel like they’re pulsating. Please tell me where you feel this, and whether or not it actually hurts.
