The external genitalia are known as the vagina, it's also affectionately called pussy, fanny or muff in
reference to the natural growth of pubic hair and it has a host of other names in all languages.
When growing up it’s natural to explore and compare, and girls soon learn but are generally discouraged from the
enjoyable clitoral massage or touching ‘down there’. They are taught to keep it
hidden at all costs and remove panties only to wash. Such is the phobia of
some parents that most children learn unhealthy attitudes to the point where some don’t keep them selves clean.

Learn to enjoy the space between your legs so that whenever a man hits on you, you can either accept and enjoy the pleasure it brings or use the
power that goes with it to keep yourself safe in a world of men. ~ Suanqu
Some things you may not know about the female genitalia.
The word “vagina” comes from the Latin root meaning “sheath for a sword,” which
may explain why some women simply hate the word. So if you don’t like the word
“vagina,” pick your own name, just call it something and don’t be afraid to talk about it.
Some people would have us think that the genitals are dirty or immoral. But we
wash every day, so we are not dirty. Urine as it leaves the body is
sterile and has no bugs in it unless there is a urinary tract infection; you'd
know about this as peeing would be painful.
Sexual morals are about manipulation and control. Any judgement is limiting and
harmful. Our genitals should be respected and honoured as much as our legs, nose
or any other body part. Morality is learned unnatural, and serves no
It's human nature to seek out and see something that is hidden. So it's natural
for people to want to look at each others hidden bits and to be fair, lots
of girls want to see and compare.
Pubic hair is not just a biological accident that forces us to shave or head off to the waxing salon. It serves
some useful functions:
It protects the
delicate vagina by making is harder for bugs to find their way in.
It serves as a reproductive billboard to alert potential mates that you are biologically (if not emotionally) prepared to
It’s a pheromone carpet and traps the scents to lead potential mates to the
Keeps the genitals hidden from sight should you happen to be seen naked.
While hair on your head can live up to seven years, pubic hair has a life
expectancy of about three weeks, which is why it only grows so long. So don’t
worry if you opt not to groom your pubes — you won’t need to braid them any time
soon. However the current fashion in many cultures is to regularly shave - shape
or remove all pubic hair. Brazilian waxing is also popular; this where all
the pubic hair and any hair that grows through the crease of the buttocks
is waxed and ripped out.
The outer genitals (vulva)
Unlike penis owners, Vagina-owners have to contort their body or squat over a
mirror in order to see what’s between their legs. Because of this, women don’t
seen their vagina very often, and when they do, it may look foreign or even
scary. Regular touch is a must to retain familiarity.
From the top as in the right image (see

the outer labia or folds of skin - labia majora (outer) and minora (inner) Every vulva is different and special. Some lips
hang down. Some are tucked up neatly inside. Some are long. Some are short. Some
are even. Some aren’t. All are beautiful and you’re perfect just the way you are.
While it's common to apply the word vagina to the entire female genitals, the
vagina is the tube that extends from the vagina opening to the uterus.
The vagina is the portal of life and pleasure. But it’s also in the region where
we carry many traumas — menstrual cramps, childbirth trauma, molestation, rape,
abortion, and painful gynecological exams. If we don’t release these traumas,
they back up and manifest in a whole host of health conditions like depression
and chronic pelvic pain. We must get to know and talk about our girly parts to liberate them.
The average inside of them vagina is 7.5 - 10.5 centimetres (3-4 inches)
long, but it can expand by over 200% when sexually aroused.
vagina was made to birth babies and it's like a balloon, it’s exceedingly elastic
to accommodate babies and of course penises to create babies and have pleasure.
For a woman in good health, if she is receptive, there is no limit to the amount
of sexual intercourse she can have. But this is a personal choice. It's
well known that sex workers will have sex with as many as fifteen men or more
almost every day. Some really enjoy this work while many are slaves to it
and learn to adapt. Some sex workers find that their vagina gets too sore
with prolonged intercourse and prefer anal sex and the rectum is more
When starting out, it can take a bit of relaxing to get it on with a big guy,
but if you have pain when getting it on
with someone large, you can indulge in genital massage or use dilators to help
stretch the vagina so you can accommodate the whole package.
The vagina produces a natural vaginal lubricant called squalene, and for this to
occur, you need to eat well and keep fit. For most people, the stronger, fitter
and healthier they are, the better the reproductive system works and sex is more
While the vagina expands, it’s not an
opening into the abdominal cavity.
While microscopic sperm can swim through a
tiny hole in the cervix, a tampon simply won’t fit. So if you lose something in
there, don’t worry. Reach in all the way and pull it out with your fingers. Do not go hunting for whatever you’ve lost with a pair of pliers. Think of your
vagina as being like a sock. If you lose a banana in a sock, it stays in the
Yes, it’s true -- your vagina can fall out. Not to belabour the sock metaphor, but
it can turn inside out just like a worn out sweat sock and hang between your
legs as you get older. But don’t fret; this condition — called pelvic prolapse
is not that common
and it can be fixed.
Vaginal farts --
Some call them “queefs” or “varts” happen to almost all women at
one time or another, especially during sex or other forms of exercise. So don’t
be embarrassed if your hooha lets out a toot. You’re perfectly normal and you
can cause a few smiles in your yoga or pilates class.
There are 8000 nerve endings in the clitoris, dedicated exclusively to female
pleasure. The penis only has 4000. Who says God didn’t take care of us girls?
Until recently, the clitoris was commonly thought of as the small bulb at the
top of the vulva, but actually it's huge as you can see in this right image.
This means that you can get pleasure from massaging/touching over the entire area.
The clitoris exists purely for sexual enjoyment and pleasure which surely throws
a spanner in the works of moralists who think the genitals are purely for
reproduction and pleasure is a sin.
The G spot --
Increasing evidence suggests that the G spot feels good because it lies right
over a deep part of the clitoris. Although experts describe the G spot as being
inside the vagina on the anterior wall, just under the urethra, the crura of the
clitoris actually runs right there. And a recent study demonstrated that vaginal
orgasms may actually be deep clitoral orgasms. But who cares? An orgasm is an
orgasm. Appreciate it, regardless of where it comes from.
Orgasms are controlled by the involuntary or autonomic nervous system. They are
often associated with other involuntary actions, including muscular spasms in
multiple areas of the body, a general euphoric sensation and, frequently, body
movements and vocalizations are expressed.
During orgasm some women exhibit a sex flush, a reddening of the skin over much
of the body due to increased blood flow to the skin.
Orgasm is indescribable, but it can be defined as the sudden discharge of
accumulated sexual tension.
Mystics say that the orgasm is a flush of psycho-spiritual energy that serves
as a tonic to:.
connect us to the divine principal in a similar way as meditation
connect us to our lover where the orgasm is shared
balance physical, mental and emotional energies
Medically it's recognised that sexual activity and orgasms is good exercise that
helps maintain general physical health, and especially the health of our hearts
and circulatory system. A study in 2001 which focused more specifically on cardiovascular
health found that having sex three or more times a week was associated with a
50% reduction in the risk of heart attack or stroke.
In short, orgasms are good for our health and we need them though either shared
or personal sex. But it's estimated that about 30% of women don't orgasm
which is perhaps sad that they are missing something so beautiful. Those women
who are missing out can learn to have orgasms, but it takes courage to seek a
Some women ejaculate during orgasm, but you’re normal if you don’t. The
controversial “female ejaculation” most likely represents two different
phenomena. If it’s a small amount of milky fluid that likely comes from the paraurethral glands inside the urethra. If it’s a cup, it’s probably pee. Many
times, it may be a little bit of both. But don’t stress out about peeing on
yourself. Put a towel under you and surrender to the experience.
Orgasm alone is good for you. Benefits include lowering
your risk of heart disease and stroke, reducing your risk of breast cancer,
bolstering your immune system, helping you sleep, making you appear more
youthful, improving your fitness, regulating menstrual cycles, relieving
menstrual cramps, helping with chronic pain, reducing the risk of depression,
lowering stress levels, and improving self esteem. So go at it, girlfriends!
General care & Hygiene
A healthy vagina feels, smells and tastes nice and wiping away the occasional
drip after urinating is a good practice. Although urine is sterile as it leaves
the body, it quickly goes off after exposure to air.
Daily washing is good practice, but there is no need to use any soap, in fact
many soaps are responsible for genital (vaginal and urethral) infections like
After defecating, it is advised to wipe from front to back (away from the
vagina) to avoid any faecal contamination of the vagina.
Regular self massage and occasionally use a mirror to self inspect, this helps to
maintain genital health and familiarity.
Using condoms during sexual intercourse is vital as sexually transmitted
diseases are very common and may remain undetected until well developed. They
cause illness, infertility and death. But you can catch sexually transmitted diseases even if you use a condom. Sorry to
break it to you, but the skin of the vulva can still touch infectious skin of
the scrotum — and BAM! Warts. Herpes. Molluscum contagiosum. Pubic lice. So pick
your partners carefully.

An astonishing new work that radically changes how we think about, talk about
and understand the vagina – and consequently how we think about women and
sexuality – from Naomi Wolf, one of our most respected cultural critics and
author of the modern classic,
The Beauty Myth. As Naomi Wolf embarks on a
life-changing journey to tease out the link between sexuality and creativity,
what she discovers is revelatory and exhilarating – a scientifically supported
link between the vagina and female courage, assertiveness and consciousness
itself. Emboldened by these new discoveries she looks back in history and show
us how the vagina was considered sacred for centuries until it began to be cast
as a threat. Even now in an increasingly sexualised world, it is thought of as
slightly shameful. Why?
Vagina: A New Biography combines cutting-edge science
with cultural history to explore the role of female desire and how it affects
female identity, creativity and confidence. Provocative and engaging, positive
and inspiring, this book brings to light female impulses, history and dreams –
and, in exploring what women really need – it goes to the very core of what it
means to be female. For any woman who wants to understand her body and her mind
and the culture that defines her – Vagina is essential reading
Only about 30% of women have orgasms from intercourse alone. The clitoris is
where the action is. Most women who do orgasm during sex have figured out how to
hit their sweet spot, either from positioning or from direct stimulation of the
clitoris with fingers.
