Marion Sims discovered a condition called "vaginismus", in which a woman felt such pain from intercourse she was unable to bear penetration. He prescribed surgery, but another treatment was to put the woman under anesthesia so her husband was able to have sex with her. Sims described one case in which a physician had to visit the couple two or three times a week to anesthetize the woman before love making. -- American Women, 400 years of dolls, drudges, and heroines.
