You think you know everything about your vagina? Well, think again!
Below are five things you probably didn’t know about the very interesting organ.
1. The vagina changes in size and shape during arousal:
The average size of a vagina is between 3-4 inches, but during sexual intercourse, it gets more relaxed and wider, the uterus is pulled upwards, which changes the position of the vagina to become longer.
2. The vagina is self-cleaning:
Vagina has natural flora which aids in its cleaning up, so no need to use soap when cleaning the vagina because it will interfere with the vagina’s normal flora and change the body’s PH balance, this can cause infection such as thrush.
3. Each vagina has its own peculiar smell:
Every woman’s vagina smells different from the next woman’s, and there are a lot of reasons why this is so. Some of the reason includes; Hygiene, food consumed, how much a woman sweats.
4. Women can get turned on in public and no one gets to know:
Unlike men, when women get turned on in public, they don’t need to feel anyhow about it because no one gets to easily notice as the vagina doesn’t show through their cloth.
5. The most sensitive part of the vagina is about 9-11cm long:
The clitoris is the most sensitive part of the vagina, having 8000 nerve endings which are the highest nerves in a part of the human body, it is typically 9-11cm long, outwardly, we see just about half the size of it, while the remaining part is extended into the vagina. This is one reason why women tend to have multiple orgasm, as compared to men.
