Labia Majora vs. Labia Minora
You have two sets of Labia. They're called the labia major (the outer set) and the minor (the inner set.) What is better known as "lips" because they kinda look them. The labia minora provides the second layer of protection for the underlying structures and openings, and they also have oil glands that secrete lubrication to keep you comfortable. The labia are responsible for keeping your vagina safe and protected from bacteria and other pathogens. The labia is the main reason why vagina does not take so kindly to things like lotion, scented soaps or basically anything that isn't water, water based or another body part and sex toys.
Fun Fact, Did you know the clitoris is actually much bigger than the head of a penis. (Know right, buttt.... it's true)
The portion of the clitoris that's accessible externally is only the very tip of it.The little button structure on the surface of the vulva extends deep into the body, down to the mouth of the vagina, and has structures that extend off of it like wishbones. Yes, our vagina is a big deal! Many thing the size of your clitoris has something to do with your level of sensitivity. I beg to differ. Clitorises come in all shapes and sizes. It doesn't really matter either way when it comes to how sensitive you are.
The skin most people inaccurately refer to as "The Vagina" is actually the mons pubis. When looking at the vaigna, the mons pubis is the mound of flesh directly above your vulva. It is what generally grows pubic hair once puberty hits.
Your uterus is where a fetus develops during pregnancy. Many call it your womb, once a fetus is growing inside. Yet it is formally known by most as the "uterus." The uterus is pear- shaped and about the size of a fist. When your arouse the uterus lifts up to elongate your vagina. This is called "tenting."
In doing research for this blog, i learned that despite all rumors w probably still have our hymens. So, I always thought after you lose your virginity it just bleeds and what not. Actually, I didn't know what the heck happened to it. What actually happens is the hymen stretches a bit, and that can cause a bit of bleeding the first time you lose your virginity.
Right below the urethra lies the introitus, also called the vestibule or the opening to the vagina. Think of it as a foyer.
Being a woman is so much more than the eye sees. We need to appreciate our body and each function or wonderful VAGINA does! Remember Pussy rules the nation.
