Few men would be brave enough to say they were experts when it comes to v@g!na. In truth, many women don’t know all that much about the topic either. Given the role it plays in daily functioning, se'x, and babymaking, it is a body part worth understanding — whether you have one or not.
1. EVERY V@G!NA IS DIFFERENTThere is a huge amount of variability in terms of what vag!nas look like. The size and colors of everything down there can vary, as can the amount of fat on the sides of vagina.
2. THE VA G!NA IS JUST ONE PART OF WOMEN’S PRIVATE PARTS
Sometimes, a woman’s entire gen!tal region is referred to as the v@gina. But in fact, the va'g!na is just a part of the package, so to speak. The outer portion of a woman’s privates is actually called the vu'lva. That includes the inner and outer lab'ia, the cl!t0ris, cl!t0ral hood and the opening to the ure'thra and vag!'na.
The actual thing is an internal structure, along with the other parts of the female repro'ductive system including the cer vix, ute'rus, ov@ries and Fallo pian tubes (which are sometimes called the ovid ucts).
3. THE CL!T0RIS IS A POWERHOUSE FOR PLEASUREIt’s almost embarrassing how many men have no clue where this is. It is a small, but extremely important part of your partner’s anatomy. With an estimated 8,000 nerve endings, it serves one purpose and one purpose only: to make a woman feel good. In fact, it’s the only human organ that exists solely for pleasure. The key to having a sexually satisfied partner is to know exactly how to use her own to bring her the most pleasure. it has a fleshy body and ‘legs’ which extend downwards.
4. WOMEN CAN GET ERE'CT, TOO.When a woman is turned on, blood flows to her cl!t0ris, the small, round nub just above where the two inner lips meet. This causes it to swell and become sensitive to the touch. Be careful, though: The head of the clitoris can become overly sensitive and may retract underneath the hood to avoid further stimulation.
5. THE G-SP0TThis continues to be a contentious topic among experts, since some believe that it doesn’t even exist. It’s an area in the v@g!na that gives a woman the most pleasure, but it varies from one to another. This area is usually called the G-sp0t and because it’s internal, it can be difficult to locate. To find your partner’s own, insert your fingers into her v@g!na once it’s fully lubricated and push it in until you hit the cervix. Then curve your fingers in a ‘come-hither’ motion and stroke the upper walls. You’ll know it’s the G-sp0t because that area is ribbed, while the lower walls of the vagina are smooth.
6. WHY IT SMELLSIt is a complex part of the body with a lot going on both around it and in it. It is like a garden — you have several things growing there, microbiologically. Even in healthy ones, there is yeast and several kinds of bacteria, which contribute to how they smell. Se'x, sweating, mens' trual cycle phases, and diet can all affect its odor, for better or for worse. Trichomo'niasis (a sexually transmitted disease) and changes in pH balance can also change the smell down there but should be talked about with a doctor. For some women who have consistent pH problems, consuming probio'tics may help restore the proper balance.
7. WHY WOMEN PEE AFTER S'E XYou are likely aware that the an'us is pretty darn close to the v@g!na. This means that fecal bacteria is also nearby, even in the cleanest of women. This situation plus se'x can have an unpleasant outcome. When you have inter course, that penetration allows some of this bacteria to get closer to the urethra. Women have short ure'thras compared to men, so it’s easy for this bacteria (once inside) to make its way to the bladder, where it can multiple, damage tissue, and cause inflammation. This is called a urinary tract infe'ction (UTI), which can be painful and require antib iotics. Peeing right after se'x can help prevent the spread of fecal bacteria to the bladder and, there for UTIs. This is also why partners should not switch to v@g!nal inter co'urse right after an@l.
