cause of vaginismus. 

 

The occasional cases, however, of physical injury or of 

pathological condition produced by violent coitus at the 

beginning of marriage constitute but a very small portion of the 

evidence which witnesses to the evil results of the prevalent 

ignorance regarding the art of love. As regards Germany, 

Fuerbringer writes (Senator and Kaminer, _Health and Disease in 

Relation to Marriage_, vol. i, p. 215): "I am perfectly satisfied 

that the number of young married women who have a lasting painful 

recollection of their first sexual intercourse exceeds by far the 

number of those who venture to consult a doctor." As regards 

England, the following experience is instructive: A lady asked 

six married women in succession, privately, on the same day 

concerning their bridal experiences. To all, sexual intercourse 

had come as a shock; two had been absolutely ignorant about 

sexual matters; the others had thought they knew what coitus was, 

but were none the less shocked. These women were of the middle 

class, perhaps above the average in intelligence; one was a 

doctor.
