I told a dear friend of mine that I wanted to write a blog post about vaginas. He asked what I could possibly write about that hasn’t already been written. Hmmm…
Whether you call it Vajayjay, Honey Pot, Gash, Muff, Vadge or even Sally, it’s probably not something you give a lot of thought to. But let’s face it, vaginas are complicated.
In the interest of providing you, my dear readers, with quality information about “your girl”, I started my Google search with the word VAGINA. What followed are Google’s suggestions:
Now I consider myself pretty savvy about my lady bits, so I decided to take a quiz called “The Truth About The Vagina” by Web MD.
Question #1 – The vagina has several parts, including the labia and clitoris. True or False?
My answer? TRUE
Web MD – WRONG
What?? We tend to use the word vagina when we refer to our private parts, but the reality is that it is actually the narrow, muscular canal that connects the uterus and cervix to the outside of the body. It is NOT the Vulva; the visible area that consists of the inner and outer labia, clitoris and perineum.
The next question which asked about standard size and shape, I got right – YAY Me! 50% – The first question was a trick…I’m certain things are looking up!
Question #3 – Thongs may not be as hygienic as other types of underwear. True or False?
My answer? FALSE
Web MD – WRONG
Say what?? The reasoning starts with, “Because a thong is a close fitting strip of fabric, it can transport…” I let you google the rest. Me? I’ll go commando….
I am starting to get discouraged and doubt my ability to enlighten you with avant-garde knowledge until I see the next question.
The G-spot is a specific area on the vaginal wall. True or False?
Me – TRUE
Web MD – WRONG
Huh?? Apparently, there is no consistent evidence that the G spot physically exists. In 1950, German physician Ernst Grafenberg suggested that an area of the anterior vaginal wall is sensitive to touch and that stimulation of this area can bring about orgasm, but the debate about its existence is ongoing.
Hmmm…sounds like a future blog post…
Four questions in and three answers wrong. Next question about tampons – WRONG
And then, douching, discharge and kegels – RIGHT, RIGHT and RIGHT
When the quiz is over, I am mortified that I got 6 of 11 questions right and my score is a dismal 55%.
On the bright side, for all the time I spent researching Sally, I found these 10 neoteric facts I feel compelled to share with you.
- Vagina is Latin for sheath
- There are blog posts dedicated to the names people call vaginas
- Tinkering with the presentation of your Vadge is clearly age related
- A well hung guy will not stretch it out, nor will a long, dry spell cause it to tighten
- Like you, it benefits from regular exercise
- Like your oven, it’s self cleaning
- Hoo-ha stimulation releases feel good hormones, even if you don’t reach orgasm
- Men don’t really have a preferred type; they’re just happy to see one
- It gets wrinkles too
- Having cosmetic filler injected in to your G-spot is a thing – huh?
