After Botox Treatment for Vaginismus, Dilating Can Be Erotic!

Rediscover Passion with Papaya Toys


After patients receive the Botox treatment for vaginismus plus progressive dilation under anesthesia and are comfortable with dilating, many feel that dilating is still so clinical and mechanical. Some of these patients also experience low libido; therefore, they have difficulty transitioning from the dilators to intercourse. I highly recommend to all my patients to experiment with different forms of foreplay. Vibrating dilators are excellent aids in transitioning to intercourse. It is important to remember to have fun with dilating and to include your husband or partner whenever possible. This will diminish the clinical and mechanical aspect of dilating and bring more sexual desire and excitement into your foreplay.

I recently received the following from a patient . . .

“I recently tried using the Candy Stick and highly recommend it. It is basically a vibrating dilator that is just a little bit larger than Big Blue (Pure Romance). The good thing is that it is made of the same silicone material as the Pure Romance Dilators and is comfortable to insert. It also is incredibly useful for relaxation prior to intercourse. For those in the process of transitioning to intercourse or for those who have hubbys/partners who may be a little larger than Big Blue, I would highly suggest trying this as well.”

Months later, this patient writes again . . .

“My hubby and I continue to enjoy using the “grape” Candy Stick as a very fun part of our foreplay. If I were to see this on the day after my procedure, I would’ve been intimidated by it’s size as it is a little bigger than the larger blue dilator. However, I can assure all of you reading this that it is an excellent product and nothing at all to be intimidated by. I find it very useful for relaxation prior to intercourse and my hubby and I have so much fun with it. For those who are in the process of transitioning to intercourse, this can help significantly as it both relaxes you as well as continues to stretch you, like the dilators. For those of you who may be struggling becoming used to thrusting, the Candy Stick is a great tool to use to practice the in and out thrusting motion in a more relaxed state with the vibration. It is also just very fun to use as a couple and enhance intimacy with one another. For those of you who have purchased the Candy Stick, would you also recommend it to future patients?”

Effect of massage and manipulation of the soft tissues result in relaxation

The overall effect of massage, manipulation of the soft tissues, is to cause relaxation. That might be all psychological, but some data suggest real changes in tissue chemistry due to the manipulation. The relaxation could be a reaction to a decrease in waste products and muscle tension. Whatever the reason people love massages. They always have and always will.
