10 Weird Facts About the Vagina

#1 Each vagina has its own smell
The smell depends on a variety of factors, including the combination of normal bacteria that live in the vagina, diet, types of fabric a woman wears, level of hygiene, how much a woman sweats, and gland secretions.






#2 The first inch or two of the vagina has the most nerve endings 
and is the most pleasure receptive.



#3 The first movie to use the word “vagina” on film
was the 1946 Disney animated film called “The Story of Menstruation.”

#4 Elasticity of the muscles in the vagina can be restored
with a new non-surgical technology used in FemTouch treatment. It is also a solution for vaginal prolapse.


#5 The pH (acid/base balance) of the vagina is around 4

#6 Hair around the vaginal area grows only for three weeks 
However, the hair on a person’s head can grow for up to seven years.



#7 In a condition called pelvic prolapse (vaginal prolapse), a woman’s vagina can literally fall out
and hang between the legs. Pelvic prolapse, however, can often be fixed.

While tiny, microscopic sperm can swim through the opening of the cervix, a tampon will never fit. So it is impossible to lose a tampon, condom, or anything else in a vagina.


#9 Vaginas (like breasts, knees, and bottoms) can get saggy
Pregnancy, childbirth, age, hormonal changes, genetics, and years of gravity can weaken the supports of the female genital tract, which causes sagging. There are several ways to avoid sagging:

#10 Both sharks and vaginas have a substance called squalene 
Squalene exists in shark livers and is also a natural vaginal lubricant. Could this be related to “Shark Week”?
