Using techniques like prolonged sexual foreplay ( 15-20 minutes) use of aqueous based lubricants, position changes and communication with your sexual partner are excellent methods to prevent penetration pain.

Muscle Soreness: Could be a tear or a nerve injury if you recently overexerted yourself. If not trauma or recent activity consider seeing a doctor to rule out bicipital tendonitis/tear or rotator cuff injury. Other possibilities include nerve entrapments in that area, requiring further testing and diagnostics.
