Vaginal Dilators: Its very important that you solve this problem. Otherwise your brain will associate pain with sex. Xylocain isn't a long term solution. A better solution would be to use vaginal dilators to increase your ability to accommodate his size without pain. One place that sells them can be found here: https://www.vaginismus.com/

May help: If it is apprehension and anticipation of pain with lack of lubrication that causes painful intercourse, xylocaine (lidocaine) cream may help. If the male partner is too big judged by experience with previous partner(s), the issue should be discussed between partners. The result may be to end the sexual part of the relationship.
