“Suggestions for Using Vaginal Dilators” is a handout written by author and sex therapist, Wendy Maltz. Wendy worked for forty years as a licensed clinical social worker, licensed marriage and family therapist, and AASECT- diplomate certified sex therapist before retiring in 2016. She specialized in helping people overcome specific sexual problems caused by sexual abuse.
This handout is an updated 2023 version of an earlier handout Wendy created for clients dealing with vaginal pain and discomfort to introduce them to the therapeutic option of using vaginal dilators as part of their overall treatment plan. It is based on, and more fully describes, the suggestions for using vaginal dilators found in Wendy’s classic recovery book, The Sexual Healing Journey.
Throughout her practice, other therapists and medical professionals have requested copies of this highly praised handout to share with their clients. We present it here in pdf form at Healthysex.com for your convenience.
