Why did I go numb during sex?

I have always been curious on why I went numb during sex? I have never asked anyone this because I felt like I would get embarrassed or tmi, but I'm not anymore so that is why I am asking. The place where I got numb is in my vagina, I don't know why I got numb though. Thanks whoever answers :)

Updates:
I started getting numb after around 20-30 minutes of penetration.
I have read all your answers! thank you all :)

  • After around 20-30 minutes? Could it be a psychological reaction you have when approaching orgasm that causes you to shut down? (This can happen when a girl doesn't feel 'safe' or comfortable in letting herself go completely).Otherwise if the sex isn't quiet doing it for you after 20-30minutes (not bringing you to orgasm) then I think it is quiet natural for girls to kind of lose the nice sensations down there (a lot of girls I know will get irritated if they have not been brought to orgasm within 30 minutes, either at the guy or at themselves, either way they may want to stop as it becomes impossible for them to get back to the pleasurable sensations).My advice would be to stop when you lose sensations and return to other forms of intimacy (kissing, touching) and then return to sex as the feelings return but I am a guy of course so its always a learning experience with me and the female anatomy ;)

    • okay! this makes sense, I have never reached an orgasm and I'm really comfortable when having sex, I just let myself go and enjoy the moment.

    • Enjoying sex and allowing oneself to have an orgasm are different though :) I recommend in your alone time practice with yourself to reach orgasm and when you have achieved this take more control of the sex with your partner. Take the on top position on occasion and control the rhythm and depth of penetration so that you control how it feels for you. This worked for my girlfriend and I after advice from her friends and once she got started can now orgasm regularly ;)

    • mmk, I have never been on top so ill try that out when I'm become sexually active again

  • link is a beginning to find an additive with sex with this guy

    • lol I'm not going to pay 23 dollars for that ._.

  • There you go, 20 minutes of constant penetration and not enough blood to increase the pleasure button is going to make you numb, this happens to guys as well, all this means is slow things down during foreplay, get each other really excited, have sex but not for 20 minutes, and things should be fine. Try shaking your hand up and down for to minutes without it going numb, x

  • OVER-stimulated. Plain and simple. The nerve endings are so frayed and tender and overworked they shut down. Kind of like your arm or leg - you can still use it, it just does not feel 'right'.

  • maybe that's your vagina telling you its had enough lol. Are you able to orgasm before the 20-30 min mark?

    • I have never had an orgasm :(

  • This could happen from some of the lubes used. There are lubes used to numb the guy so he will last longer and that could also be affecting you also.Another possibility could be positions your using which are putting pressure on you lower abdominal area slowing blood flow to your p*ssy and inner thigh areaGot to be a lucky girl to find these guys that can go 30 minutes without a bit of a break.

  • I would ask you Dr on your next check-upCould be some sort of allergic reaction to something..(lube, condoms, toys)Maybe you are pinching a nerve somehow?Is it every time you are penetrated?Even when solo?Part partners?

    • sex feels great for the first 20 or 30 minutes, then after, I can't really feel anything anymore. I have kept abstinence for over a year but I have always been curious on if something was wrong with me and yes it is every time I am penetrated. I should get checked up on a doctor.

    • I'm thinking its something in the lube/condom or it is in the angles.. he his hitting a spot that makes you numb, or you are bent in a way that makes you numb...Try doing something completely different maybe?

    • okay, you might be right. I always had the same position with the guy I had sex with, that's probably why.

  • because its too long. I get BORED after 20 minutes. everyone does. either I come in the first 15 minutes or its just TOO long. worst if a guy is drunk and goes on for one hour... !nothings wrong with you... foreplay has to be GOOD and then sex should not be longer than 20 min. never. and sure you'll get numb. porn gives you the wrong impression on how sex should be.

  • are you breathing regularly? my eyes used to cross and my face used to get hot...i asked a friend and she recommended I monitor my breathing. it worked for me.

    • I never knew if there was a right way of breathing during sex, my eyes have never crossed but my face used to get really hot.

    • just make sure its regular. a lot of women have the habit of breathing more shallow or holding their breath when theyre having sex and now I consciously breath better.

  • that happens to me too I have never had an orgasm :( I feel no pleasure from sex once it's been going for a few mins

  • Stop using long-lasting condoms!
