My Fucking Problem

'My Fucking Problem' is a documentary about four women for whom vaginal penetration is painful; the director herself is one of these women. The impact of this condition is significant. Many women endure therapy after therapy, trying to find out what is the matter with them. The women are forced to make complex considerations when it comes to their love lives. Their self-image and self-esteem can be immensely affected.

What is it like for these women when they compare their personal, lived realities to the sexual experiences described by family, friends, strangers, and the media? Why is penetration so important? Is it possible to be satisfied without? What, exactly, is sex? The film invites the viewer to consider expanding some of the narrow and media-driven definitions of sexual experience.
