10 surprising facts about the Vagina

Oh, the wondrous vagina. A complex and clever little thing. It can strengthen by doing regular exercise; it can make its own lubrication; and it can even stretch to the size of a melon to deliver a baby. What a champ! They are the flower of life and roughly 50% of us have them. Yet there’s so much we don’t know.

Well, fear not. After uncovering some surprising Penis Facts, we thought it was about time The V had her chance to amaze you…


Vagina Fact #1

When women are turned on, their clit basically gets, well, a boner. It becomes enlarged and erect, just like its pal, The D.


Vagina Fact #2

When ladies are turned on, their Hoo-ha doubles in size, relaxing and widening; something known as “tenting”. Nice.


Vagina Fact #3

There are 8,000 nerve endings in the clitoris. The penis only has 4,000. Burn.


Vagina Fact #4

A vagina is like wine. Poetic huh? But in literal terms, vaginas actually have a PH level of 3.8 – 4.5, where most wines’ PH fall around 3.0-4.0. Raise a glass to the nunny!


Vagina Fact #5

The largest vagina ever recorded was that of Scottish Anna Swan (1846-1888). Sadly, we don’t have any recorded evidence of her vaginas exact dimensions but, after delivering a 26 pound baby, you can image you could just about park a Mini in there.


Vagina Fact #6

Vaginas and Sharks have something in common: They both contain a substance called Squalene which is found in the livers of sharks and is a natural vaginal lubricant.


Vagina Fact #7

The word “vagina” stems from the Latin root meaning “sheath for a sword”. How romantic.


Vagina Fact #8

Contrary to popular belief, you can’t lose anything in a vagina. The opening of the uterus is too small and there is literally nowhere for *unknown item* to go.


Vagina Fact #9

The first movie to use the word “vagina” on film was…wait for it…a Disney film. Yep. Disney. The film to take this claim was “The Story of Menstruation” released in 1946. We’ll stick to watching Lion King thanks.


Vagina Fact #10

We’re not even using the right word for it! The term vagina only refers to the muscular canal that extends from the cervix and, in fact, does not refer to all parts of the female genitalia. The correct word is Vulva. Now how cheated do you feel?!?!
