I agree! I was diagnosed with a sports hip injury a month ago that resulted in some serious pain in both my hips. I just knew if I had a boyfriend or special person in my life I wouldn't be able to perform sexually. But to my surprise someone came along and when we are intimate whether it be hugging, kissing, holding hands, or sex... I always feel little to no pain the day of or the day after. This is coming from someone who is dependent on narcotics just to get through my day with a manageable amount of pain! Physical affection makes me pain free!
