Meghan Trainor's Word Vomit About Her Husband's Large Penis Has a Serious Side to It

Meghan Trainor is not a celebrity with a verbal filter. Her songs might be cutesy and innocent, but she’s happy to spill all about her private life on every platform possible. You might remember when she talked about having side-by-side toilets in her house so that she and her husband, Spy Kids star Daryl Sabara, can do a number two as a loving pair. She also recently talked about how Sabara shaved her pubic hair so she’d be ready for it all to hang out during her C-Section. On her new podcast, which she co-hosts with her brother, she got into hot water for saying, ‘F**k teachers’ while talking about her plans to home-school her son (she quickly apologized.) Now, she’s talking about her husband’s massive swinging dong. But there’s a good reason behind it. Honestly.

Back on her podcast, she described how her husband is ‘a big boy’ and that it gave her ‘p*ssy anxiety […] To the point where I’m like ‘Is it all in?’ and he’s like, ‘Just the tip.” OK. Well done, Juni, I suppose.

This quickly went viral, of course, because it’s a level of uncontrolled candour that cannot help but inspire derision. We’re in an age where the biggest stars on the planet keep their cards pretty close to their chests. They’re not all Beyoncé but the days when A-Listers had to do big People exclusives on their marriages, divorces, kids, and health are mostly over. Trainor is in the middle of a mini career revival and has a book coming out about motherhood, so this brand of honesty is handy for selling things. But what’s not being reported so heavily during this case of dong-gate is the reason why Trainor is in pain during sex.

Trainor revealed she has a medical condition that makes sex hurt. She said on the podcast, ‘I was told I have something called vaginismus. I thought that every woman walking around was always in pain during and after sex. I was like, ‘Doc, are you telling me that I could have sex and not feel a single bit of pain?”

Vaginismus is actually pretty common but seldom talked about. It’s a condition where, as noted on the NHS website, ‘the vagina suddenly tightens up when you try to insert something into it […] Whenever penetration is attempted, your vaginal muscles tighten up on their own. You have no control over it. Occasionally, you can get vaginismus even if you have previously enjoyed painless penetrative sex.’ It’s also one of the reasons many women can’t use tampons. It’s, as you can imagine, a very embarrassing thing to talk about, and many simply don’t because they think it’s just them. Societally speaking, we’re pretty ruthless about judging women’s bodies and sexual autonomy. We don’t offer many solutions to this issue or are bombarded with quack solutions from crooks hoping to prey on our vulnerabilities.

Even now, Trainor’s being lambasted more for talking about her sex life than the condition she has, which has clearly made a big impact on her relationship with her husband. I mean, I get it. Stuff like this is primed for mockery. But it says a lot that the gossip headlines are omitting the medical side of things in favour of the easy joke.
