19 Highly Interesting Facts About Vaginas...Onedio > Women, Men-Added on 18 April 2016, 11:09, Updated on 5 June 2016, 13:50Ken AdamsOnedio Editor Originally Latin, vagina actually means cover, or case. However, not many people know this, or any of the many other interesting and important facts about this organ. Here are 19 facts about the vagina, where each and every life begins... #1As opposed to the one genital space in guys, women have two, the urethra and vagina. Both are protected by labia, and they can expand. However, the vagina can expand much more than the urethra.#2The inside of the vagina has a rugged surface to increase the friction during sex. During intercourse, it releases a chemical named squalene (getting some ideas now?!) to moisten and ease the penis' entry. Generally, this process is known as "getting wet"...This substance is only found in women AND in the liver of sharks. But there are absolutely no similarities between their function.#3tub.tubgit.comThere are more than 8000 nerves in the clitoris, compared to a penis, with 4000. This means it is twice as sensitive!#4static1.squarespace.comThe pubic hair around the vagina has many more features than you think. It's not just about shaving it off in the name of beauty. These are also the same in men. Pubic hair protects the vagina from micro-particles. They give the "grown up, hit the fertility phase" image. Lastly, and most importantly, they block the sudden release of all pheromones, releasing them slowly, therefore making the sexual and chemical attraction last longer. These 3 features are actually quite crucial among animals.#5i.imgur.comAn average vagina is 2-3 inches in length. However, during intercourse, this length can increase by 200% and can endure any pressure that might occur during the whole process. On the other hand, this flexibility is important when women are giving birth, to help enable the baby's exit.#6www.draltunyurt.comThere is no standard vagina or vulva. It has varying specifications and features across many species. Because not only females pick their partners but males pick their partners, too, variation increases the chance of reproducing.#7www.ourbodiesourselves.orgIt doesn't lead into an empty part of the body but leads into the uterus. So anything that might go into vagina never gets "lost". (If it's not a microscopic thing.) As kinky as that might sound, certain "objects" can be easily extracted and never get lost in limbo as oppose to the general belief.#8www.acibadem.com.trJust like our entire body, vaginas age as well. With time and aging, you might end up experiencing pelvic prolapse. As WebMD suggests this is, when your pelvic organ drops from its normal place and pushes against the walls of your vagina. This usually happens after birth or when your pelvic muscles are weakened. But don't worry, it's completely curable!#9www.eceyaziyor.comEven if you use a condom, you will still have the chance of getting an STD when having sex. This is why you should carefully pick and act. A condom never fully protects or works 100% of the time.#10s.doctoroz.comEvery woman's vagina is different and unique to her own. This shows how important sexual selection and variation really is!#11www.soc.ucsb.eduOnly 30% of all women are able to have an orgasm during a sexual encounter. This is believed to be the result of an adaptation process and it usually improves with time and practice.#12ichef.bbci.co.ukOnly very few women actually experience a certain liquid ejeculation just like men. This fluid is produced by Skene's gland and sometimes actually contains urine. Over stimulation during sex results with this. (Well...duh!)#13www.womenshealthmag.comG spots require patience and the clitoris is actually not a G spot. So don't go playing Guitar Hero around the area if you don't know what you're really doing. If you’re hunting for your G Spot, be patient. Stimulating this area usually requires more time and deeper stimulation than most people think. Try using a finger in a “come hither” motion to stimulate the front wall of the vagina, where the G spot lives. If you can’t find it, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Many can’t--and it's definitely not critical to having a fulfilling romp in the hay.#14secure.static.tumblr.comVariations and uniqueness is much more complicated than you think. Even the intensity and flexibility of hymen differs from women to women. Some women's hymens actually survive childbirth!#1541.media.tumblr.comBreastfeeding and menopause are also the same. They both have different effects because it's all connected to the estrogen levels. Lower estrogen levels reduce the vaginal lubricity. In such cases, don't ever think this is something you lack and feel bad.#16www.stayathomemum.com.auVaginal fart or "queefing" is the result of pocket of air getting pushed out of your vagina. This usually happens when vaginal muscles have contractions. It's quite common during intercourse, so if it ever happens, don't freak out!#17cdn0-a.production.liputan6.static6.comMost people think of the clitoris as a small erogenous zone. However, the clitoris actually goes a loooong way under the skin. So what you are seeing is actually the tip of the iceberg.#18static.tumblr.comAccording to research conducted by the Journal of Sexual Medicine, lesbians have much more orgasms, compared to heterosexual and bisexual women.#19nowstreamingpod.comJust like men, sex has tons of benefits for women. It lowers the chances of having a heart attack, stroke, or breast cancer. It improves the immune system, provides better sleep and fitness, and lowers the amount of chronic pain. Don't even get us started on the self-confidence boost!How do you feel?
