The Vagina. This amazing body part can bring about intense pleasure, annoying pain, and even another tiny human being. In short, it's pretty awe-inspiring. That's why we think it's crucial to stay on top of everything going on below the belt.
When it comes to the vagina, there are three basic things every woman knows: You don’t need to douche, every woman has vaginal discharge, and ultimately, nothing can get lost in the vagina.
DOUBLE THE PLEASURE, DOUBLE THE FUN
The clitoris has around 8000 nerve endings. That's double the 4,000 nerve endings that are on the penis.
PLENTY OF ROOM
The average vagina is 3-4 inches long, but the vagina can expand by as much as 200% when a woman is sexually aroused. That means most lady parts can accommodate even the most well-endowed man.
THE SHARPEST OF SWORDS
The word "vagina" comes from the Latin root meaning "sheath for a sword." Ouch.
THE HAIR DOWN THERE
Though the hair on your head can live up to seven years, pubic hair can only live for a few weeks. That's why it doesn't grow to braided ponytail lengths. Thank goodness for that!
Condoms are not an effective way of preventing all STDs, because the vulva are still able to touch the skin of the scrotum. Be extra choosy about your sex partners!
Vaginas can, and sometimes do, fall out with age. It's called pelvic prolapse, and basically the vagina turns inside out and hangs between your legs. Luckily, it is totally fixable.
Sharks and vaginas have something in common! They both contain squalene, a substance that exists in shark livers and vaginal lubricant.
It's normal to let out vaginal farts (known as "queefs" or "varts") during sex.
