    Anyone have any suggestions to increasing sensitivity during sex? I was going to check to see if there was a post that already existed about it, but there's so many pages to look through. If anyone can point me in the direction of such a post let me know.

    Vaginal sensitivity can be affected by all kinds of things. Hormonal changes that take place during pregnancy, menopause and the normal menstrual cycle can have an affect, as can many medications including birth control. There are also a range of psychological causes.

    It can, on very rare occasions, be a sign of something more serious such as kidney disease. So it may be worth speaking to a doctor.

    As for increasing sensitivity, there are creams available that are applied directly to the vagina prior to sexual activity. They are designed to increase blood flow to the vagina, and thus increase its sensitivity. I have also heard that Kegel exercises can increase sensitivity over time.

    I've been reading up on the effect of Viagra on women. Studies are not complete yet, so its long term effects and side effects are not documented, but apparently it works in much the same way as for men.
    Just as it causes blood flow to be increased in a man's penis, it causes blood flow to be more concentrated in the clitoral area. This heightens sensitivity, and is reportedly making orgasms even more intense. Women have been given 200 mg of Viagra (twice the dosage as men) to achieve the results.
    But like 'Info' said, there are many creams and such on the market that do basicaly the same thiing (and probably with far less bad effects.) Whenever you take a drug internally that opens the blood vessels, you run risks of other problems. Many doctors, however, are willing to talk with women about the possibility of taking viagra for sensitivity issues. You should be under his/her supervision, though.

    There are some fairly new lubricants being sold as "warming" lubricants that may be of help. I see them in drugstores.
