Alright, ladies. Let’s talk vagina. What else in this world can accommodate a tampon, a fully erect penis, and a baby? (If you answered anything besides the amazing vagina, we need to have a talk.) The female anatomy is pretty amazing, isn’t it? Although the mainstream media might portray a different (less informed, questionable, negative) tone when it comes to the vagina, they couldn’t be more wrong. Your vagina is amazing. Ask your gynecologist, they’ll gift you with more than a few incredible facts about your vagina.
With a little help from my friendly playlist (Hailee Steinfeld, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, I applaud you and thank you for writing music about feeling yourselves), I decided to dive into the world of the legendary anatomy of the vagina. And let me tell you, it is legendary. How did I not know all of these amazing things about something located on my body? Like the fact that the very word vagina comes from the Latin root meaning, “sheath for a sword.” Or that the highest recorded number of orgasms achieved by a woman in one hour is 134? Compared to a man’s 16? Dang. If that’s not enough reason to celebrate having a vagina, then the following facts are sure to sway you.
