There are a few possibilities for your pain. First is that you have a urine infection. UTI's classically cause pain on urination.
You may also have some inflammation of your urethra. Urethritis can be caused by an infection as well as irritation that can be caused by friction of intercourse (known as honeymoon cystitis).
I would suggest that you see a doctor to be tested for a urine infection as well as STD's that can also cause similar pain. A physical examination will help reveal any signs of skin irritation or possibly a yeast infection of the skin near the urethra. Of course, if your urine is consistent with a UTI a physical exam probably isn't necessary.
