When was the last time you seriously thought about your vagina? Unless you're actively having sex or on the gynecologist's exam table, you probably don't have to give it a spare thought. Vaginas, thankfully, are fairly self-sufficient organs. However, there are loads of quirky and downright weird things about your vagina that you need to know about.
Now, most of the weirdness is not endemic to the vagina itself. It just goes about its business. But the way people have thought about and described the vagina throughout history is pretty wild. For instance did you know that some cultures believed women might have hidden teeth in their vagina?
But plenty of modern concerns about vaginas need a little readjustment, too. For instance, despite the aisles of stuff you see in drugstores, you really don't need any specialized products to clean your vagina. Seriously, mild soap will do the trick. Oh, and those icky jokes about "loose" women who have "too much" sex are not based in any reality. Having sex won't stretch out your vagina beyond repair. Seriously, give the yoni a little credit. With that in mind, it's fun to take a few minutes to learn something new about the vagina, its workings, and the bizarro myths about it that persist to this day.
