Hi, I am new here to this forum. I am 26 year old and still a virgin. It is embarrassing for me to talk about this but I figure why not. I recently had my first pap smear. I have always heard from friends who are virgins that it was just a uncomfortable feeling and that it doesn't hurt much. Well when I got it done it was really painful. I even started shaking a little. I am a person who can take pain pretty well but not that. Is it suppose to be that painful? Afterwards I was okay. Since then I was curious one day and I have used one of my finger and inserted it in my vagina to see if it will still be painful. There is a little pain but it is not as bad as I had that pap. Is this normal? I'm not sure if I even did it right. Also, experiencing that it makes me want to have sex just to get the painful part over with. I heard sex becomes less painful the more you do it but idk. This is off topic but girls masturbating is that wrong? I have always been curious to try it but too afraid and would feel disgusted at the thought. Anyway thanks for reading.
