Many have wondered if the “myth” of pineapple juice making you taste “sweeter” down there is true. This list has the answer! It can also tell you if it’s possible to lose anything in your vagina (hint: you can’t), or whether or not “vagina dentata” is an actual medical condition. Make sure to vote up the most interesting vagina facts you haven’t heard before, and appreciate the vaj for all it’s magical abilities!
The distance from the clitoris to the opening matters.
Distance matters, at least when it comes to climax. That’s according to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Basically, it boils down to this: the further away the clitoris is from the vaginal opening, the more trouble a woman has reaching her peak.
Penis captivus is a real thing.
Although extremely rare, there have been documented cases of penis captivus, which is when a vagina contracts around a peen, making it impossible to withdraw. But not to worry – not only is the condition rare, but male junk is unlikely to be trapped for longer than a few minutes maximum. Any longer, and you might find yourself on an episode of Sex Sent Me to the ER.
It’s Capable Of Climaxing In Many Different Ways
It is truly amazing, allowing for four different types of climax: vaginal, clitoral, blended, and multiple (rolling orgasms). Hallelujah! Read here for tips on how to induce these
The clitoris has more nerve endings than any other part of the body
The clitoris contains over 8,000 nerve endings, with sensations that can result in a domino effect, ultimately affecting 15,000 nerve endings. By comparison, male members only has around 4,000. Sorry, fellas.
They can expand up to 200 percent (!) during intercourse or childbirth.
Ladies and sharks share a bizarre commonality.
And no, it’s not vagina dentata. Female organs secrete their own natural lubricant, a substance called squalene. Squalene is also found elsewhere in nature, specifically in shark livers.
Having two is more common than you think.
“Uterus didelphys” actually occurs in 1 in 3,000 people, making the condition not so rare. However, few who are born with the double-vag condition have two that are fully functional. One woman, Faye Wilkinson, shared her story with the New York Post and revealed that she delivered two babies from her two separate wombs.
The way it tastes can actually be affected by what a woman eats (or drinks).
Pineapple, kiwi, blueberries, mango, green tea, cucumber, and parsley are all reported to make your lady parts taste “better.” (And it’s not just limited to ladies: men also reportedly tastes sweeter.)
A journalist from YourTango, Rachel Khona, even did a fun experiment involving pineapple juice, celery (for lubrication), meat (reported to make things “smellier”), and flavor strips (to compare to the pineapple juice) to test the diet/taste theory.
A “normal sized” vagina doesn’t exist.
Vaginas let women know when to get pregnant.
Wine and lady parts have something very interesting in common.
The normal vaginal pH is 3.8 to 4.5. The majority of wines fall around 3.0 or 4.0; (3.0 to 3.4 is optimal for white wines, while 3.3 to 3.6 is best for reds). This makes for a fun fact you can use to convince a wine-lover to expand their… palate.
Washes and wipes are unnecessary and can actually be more harmful than helpful.
Don’t be fooled by douching ads. It is self-cleaning and a woman’s pH balance can be thrown off when using washes or wipes. That actually increases the risk of yeast and bacterial infections. It’s recommended to stick to plain ol’ soap and water when washing. The best way to clean it? Let it clean itself.
There once WAS one with teeth growing out of it. Sorta.
Lady parts with rows of teeth growing out of them, like the 2007 movie Teeth, are a complete myth. However in 1989, The American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology reported a benign embroid tumor containing teeth growing in the wall of a woman’s vag. Note: it was caused by a tumor.
The record for most weight lifted by its muscles is 14 kg (roughly 30 pounds).
It’s actually impossible to lose anything in there.
The opening of the uterus is actually too small for anything to fit through it (besides microscopic sperm). Unless you’re giving birth, of course.
