1. When you’re turned on, your clit basically gets a boner. During female s*xual arousal, the cli**ris becomes engorged with blood and erect. The size obviously varies person-to-person, but is not very large.
2. Your menstrual blood could help patients suffering from heart failure. An ERC (endometrial regenerative cells) congestive heart failure phase II clinical trial is currently testing the safety of the ERC, or “stem cells,” to treat congestive heart failure patients. Stem cells are extracted from the blood and then grown in culture to generate different types of cells in the body. In this case, the stem cells are made into muscle cells of the heart, for reparative purposes in these patients. This is an experimental foreign study, and is not something that is being done routinely, but yes, it could help patients suffering from heart failure.
3. When you’re turned on, your v**ina doubles in size. Women’s vaginas can vary substantially in size and shape during s*xual arousal. This is mainly due to tenting, which causes expansion of the upper two-thirds of the v**ina. The upward tenting also is thought to facilitate the movement of sperm up into the cervix. You know, for conception.
4. You might not have been born with a hymen at all. The majority of women are born with a hymen, and they can have varying shapes and sizes. But if you don’t have one, you’d probably never know it, as it doesn’t have any impact on your s*x life. More noticeable is a hymen that is not easily penetrated or torn — that can result in painful s*x or even difficulty getting a man-hood into your v**ina.
5. You may have more trouble reaching climax if you have a smaller cli**ris. According to a study by the Journal of s*xual Medicine that used MRIs to measure 30 women’s clitorises, of the 10 women who reported having trouble orgasming, all of them had clitorises that were farther from their vaginal opening. There isn’t a lot of conclusive data outside of that, but it seems to be a good indicator that there’s a possible correlation. Additionally, many women with smaller clitorises find that penetration-clit-stim combo vibrators (like the Rabbit) don’t work well for them because the “ears” don’t reach their clit.
6. There are 8,000 nerve endings in the cli**ris, while the man-hood only has 4,000. The cli**ris has many more sensory nerve endings than the man-hood, and stimulation can result in a cascade of immense nerve stimuli. (This may be why direct clitoral stimulation can be painful for some women.) Clitoral climax is therefore generally far more intense than male climax.
7. It’s impossible to lose anything in your v**ina. The very top of the v**ina is the cervix, an opening only big enough for microscopic sperm to get through. The v**ina is a fixed space that doesn’t continue up, so you can’t permanently lose something in there. It’s always retrievable. (Just make sure you’re retrieving whatever it is with your hand—and with trimmed fingernails—and nothing sharp!)
8. It is possible for your v**ina to fall out. With utero-vaginal prolapse, the v**ina, or the uterus and v**ina, can protrude outside the body. This can happen after childbirth or after menopause from lack of pelvic support, but it’s rare and repairable with surgery.
9. Your v**ina can’t get looser just because you have a lot of s*x. According to Dr. Justin J. Lehmiller, Ph.D. and author of the blog s*x and Psychology, “the v**ina naturally becomes looser when women are sexually aroused in order to prepare for intercourse—but after s*x, everything goes back to its normal state. What does cause vaginal looseness? Older age and (for some women) childbirth.”
10. Your v**ina has the same pH level as a glass of wine. The normal vaginal pH for vaginas is 3.8 to 4.5. Most wines’ pH fall around 3.0 or 4.0; about 3.0 to 3.4 is desirable for white wines, while about 3.3 to 3.6 is best for reds. Yes, but what does my v**ina pair well with? What of that?
