Q: Is it normal to get VERY wet when having sex?
A: I love it when there's a really easy question and this is one of them. The answer is, YES, that's totally normal. It's also normal to be relatively dry when having sex. There is a lot of natural variability (differences) between women in how much vaginal lubrication they produce when sexually aroused. Some women get "very wet" and some hardly produce any lubrication at all. There's nothing wrong in either scenario, it's just the way you were built.
If you're on the "wetter" side, enjoy it! It just means that it's really easy to tell when you're aroused and you don't have to use any extra lube when having sex. If you're worried about getting your underwear wet during the day, you can just wear panty liners. Also, you may need to wash your sheets more often if you're having sex regularly. Otherwise, it's no big deal. If you're on the "dryer" side, don't worry! Just use store-bought sex lubricant (such as KY Jelly) and use that. Either way, enjoy your sex life and remember, "The wetter, the better!"
"Hmm, a bit wetter than I expected..."
