In brief: Common
Genital tissues can be swollen or even bruised after aggressive sexual activity.
Foreplay, liberal use of water based lubricants, and breaks in sexual activity can reduce any discomfort and tenderness. If the symptoms persist, you should see your health provider to see if there are any other causes of tenderness including infections.
