Yes you can. In fact some people find it easier to become better acquainted with, and work with their vagina when they don’t feel pressured (their own internal pressure or from their partner) to be intimate.
People with vaginismus can often avoid any intimacy such as snogging for fear they tease their partner. It can also lead to frustration for both partners. Agreeing not to have sex while you work on the vaginismus can help take the pressure off. You might find other ways to connect physically that don’t feel invasive. It’s also important to have fun that doesn’t involve sex. Communication is important. If you involve your partner in your progress and are both able to talk about feelings, then you can both feel like you’re part of a team. Couples counselling can help you navigate this.
