Paloma Faith feels “guilty” about the way she treated her vagina: “I was overly accommodating…”


Paloma Faith feels “guilty” about the way she treated her vagina in the past.

The 42-year-old pop star claimed that she had always been “sensitive” in her private parts and was “overly compliant” with men during her youth at the expense of her own well-being or pleasure.

In an article for The Saturday Times magazine, she explained: “My vagina has always been sensitive but yielding, a bit like me.

“I feel guilty about how I treated him in the past. During the early years of my sexual activity, I was so overly accommodating to men that I allowed them to push it inside me without lubrication, almost trying to ignore the lack of comfort or arousal.

“I openly told men that I couldn't orgasm to relieve them of the pressure to make me orgasm. It took years for me to learn to enjoy sex or meet men who enjoyed my pleasure more than their own. Too long.”

The “New York” singer, who has two daughters aged seven and three with her ex-husband Leyman Lachine, claimed that no pain has ever come close to the pain she felt when she had sex for the first time after giving birth and that it actually took a few more years before she felt comfortable doing so again.

She added: “Nothing was as painful as my first sex after giving birth though. It was hell. It felt like there were razor blades stuck in his penis. I felt guilty because it had been seven months since the birth and I felt like I really should try it.

“I was cringing the whole time. He noticed. I felt bad, he felt bad. It wasn't erotic at all!

“I'd say it took me almost two years to stop having any pain during sex. That's a long time. I went to many gynecologists, but no one had an answer as to why this was happening. If I'm honest, I've resigned myself to having painful sex for the rest of my life.”
