Meghan Trainor Says She Thought 'Every Woman' Was 'Always in Pain During & After Sex'

Since giving birth, Meghan Trainor says she’s noticed some differences in her sex life with husband Daryl Sabara. On a recent episode of her podcast, Workin’ On It , the singer said her husband — who she herself called “a big boy” isn’t currently meshing with her down-there situation.

“My p—- is broken, though. I have p—- anxiety,” Trainor said on the pod, chatting with guest Trisha Paytas.

When asked if it was just a meeting of two different sizes, Trainor agreed saying that she even wishes her partner’s parts could be a little less large:”I wish I could make Daryl smaller. It’s painful, dude…to the point where I’m like ‘Is it all in?’ and he’s like, ‘Just the tip.”

Now this isn’t the case of TMI podcast chaos you might be thinking, getting this far in or reading headlines about that quote. Trainor, for her part, has also been dealing with vaginismus, “a condition in which vaginal spasms occur and prevent penetration during sexual intercourse,” per the National Institutes of Health.

“Vaginismus is the body’s automatic reaction to the fear of some or all types of vaginal penetration. Whenever penetration is attempted, your vaginal muscles tighten up on their own,” per the UK’s NHS. “You have no control over it. Occasionally, you can get vaginismus even if you have previously enjoyed painless penetrative sex.”

Trainor says her symptoms manifested as “stingy” and “burny” sensations. She also said that the pain while trying to conceive Baby #2 meant she did a lot of experimentation (“Every angle” she says “each one is worse than the other,” particularly being on top) and took on some different methods to find relief from the pain while still doing the deed — from icing herself like an athlete (not a bad plan, TBH) or trying out transcendental meditation. But she’d still find herself in pain post-game in a way that didn’t feel sustainable: “I’m like, ‘Daryl, I have to work today, and I can’t walk.’”
