Options after Neck Injury
Question for the group – my DW recently pinched a nerve in her neck that has caused some excruciating pain. For two weeks she’s been pretty immobilized. She’s doing physical therapy and it’s helping, but it’s not a quick and easy fix.
its obviously taken a toll on our physical intimacy. She’s currently too afraid to try sex, and HJs are probably even worse for her because of the stress it puts on her shoulder. Wondering if anyone has dealt with something like this in the past and has any recommendations. Thanks!
I would think that sex positions where she doesn’t need to strain her neck and her back and neck can be straight, such as in a chair, her lying on the edge of the bed, standing against a wall (in your bodies can align for that). Maybe rear entry while she rests her head & arms on a table or counter. Gentle thrusting is probably also important so there’s not the jolts to her body & neck.
Of course, if she can’t orgasm from PIV, then you’re probably gonna need to do things manually lying down. HOWEVER, I would suspect that she might be afraid of an orgasm for fear of the movement might hurt her neck so that might be off the table for awhile.
I’ve been there. We used the spooning position with my head and neck well supported by pillows. My orgasm definitely wasn’t a priority. As NWNL said, I really didn’t want extra movement complicating matters. Just the thought of it made me more tense. It wasn’t ideal, but you make do when there’s an injury.
Maybe you could MB while cuddling with her? I don’t think ANY sexual activity involving her right now would be a good idea at all, especially given the neck region. Just give her time to heal and things will be back to normal.
