What can I do about post-sex soreness?

So, a few days ago I went to bed with a guy I've been seeing for a while. It was great fun but I think we got a bit carried away as I'm still a bit tender down below!

I haven't had much sex since having DS nearly 3 years ago - normal birth, second-degree tear that was stitched and healed but (apologies for TMI), I don't have much of a perineum left and the soreness is around that area.

So it could be that I just need to get used to being in the saddle, so to speak, and take it slow, use lube etc? Any positions to avoid? Would really appreciate some suggestions - I really fancy the guy but I also need to be able to walk the next day!!

Lube, definitely.

And he needs to be more considerate also. If you're in pain when you walk then he needs to bang you less hard next time. No need to go like a jackhammer. Unless you like that sort of thing.

Hah, yes, I think we were both very turned on and went for it a bit too much in the heat of the moment!

A good quality water based lube
Sliquid or Lovehoney are really good
