Dear Prudence (and I!) Tackle Vaginal Pain

In today’s Dear Prudence column on, you can find me chiming in on issues related to vaginal pain and difficulty with penetration. Having worked with many writers and columnists over the years, I’ll add the “Dear Prudence” was among the most thoughtful, smart, dedicated (and caring) writers I’ve come across. If you have a question about life, love, family, friends or sex, she’s a good one to ask.
