Hot Vagina Facts
- The vulva is not part of the vagina. The vulva is all the outer stuff — including the labia, urethra, clitoris, and vaginal opening.
- The vagina is a 3 to 6 inch long muscular canal that runs from the cervix, the lower part of the uterus, to the outside of the body.
- The vagina is supposed to have a smell. The vagina contains a highly specialized army of bacteria that work ‘round the clock to keep your vaginal pH healthy and balanced. And like other bacteria, these do have a smell.
- The vagina is self cleaning, cleaning techniques like douching are a bad idea because they can throw off the natural balance, leading to problems like bacterial vaginosis and infection.
- Not all people with vaginas are considered women. Some identify as a man or nonbinary
- The pH of the vagina is quite acidic, averaging around 4.5 on the pH scale (7 is neutral). That’s about as acidic as beer or tomatoes.
- Vaginas can get ‘wet’ without being sexually aroused.
- Because of an ample blood supply the vagina heals quicker than other parts of the body.
Sexual Facts About The Vagina
- If a woman has a G-spot it’s likely because of her clitoris, if you love having the front wall of your vagina touched or stimulated, your clitoris’s internal network is probably to thank.
- A little over 18 percent of vagina owners say they can reach orgasm from penetration alone. For the other 80 percent, the key orgasmic ingredient is the clitoris.
- The anterior fornix, or the “A-spot,” is a little alcove that sits way back on the belly side of the cervix, penetration to this area can produce an orgasm in 15 to 20% of women.
- The penis has around 4,000 nerve endings. The famously “hard-to-find” clitoris has 8,000.
- Vaginas get deeper and change color to a darker red when a female is turned on.
- The reason some people with vaginas have trouble orgasming during penetrative sex could be because of a relatively small clitoris that’s located a bit too far from the vaginal opening.
- Sex or masturbation may relieve the pain of menstrual cramps. The chemical and muscular cascade involved in having an orgasm may be the reason.
- Most people with vaginas are born with a hymen, a thin piece of skin that stretches across part of the vaginal opening.
- Hymens often tear before a person ever has penetrative sex, during some unsexy activity like riding a bike or putting in a tampon. But it’s also common for the hymen to tear during sex, in which case a bit of blood is to be expected.
Childbirth and the Vagina
- Childbirth doesn’t permanently stretch out the vagina, but expect some changes.
- Although the vagina will likely remain a little wider than it was pre-birth, vaginal muscles can be toned and remain healthy by practicing regular pelvic floor exercises.
- Most vaginas tear during childbirth, 79% to be exact. Usually only requires a stitch and it will bounce right back.
