Lack of Lubrication before Intercourse
Please help!!!! Before me and my partner enter intercourse, we experience the passionate moments, kissing/feeling ect. I seem to get so horny but yet not wet!!!! It feels quite embaressing as we are both in this heated moment and then it looks like i'm not turned on. Is there any medication I can take to increase the lubrication? People have suggested some kind as jelly before intercourse, but I don't want my partner to know about this "problem" and think i'm not interested. I also don't want him to think we need assistance for me to get "wet"

Some women need more stimulation than others to become aroused and it may be that you need longer foreplay. You could explain this to your partner without suggesting that there is anything wrong with you or him. You can also use KY jelly as a lubricant. Good sex involves good communication and everyone has different needs, so there is nothing "wrong" , you just need to express what will make it a more fulfilling expereience for you.
