Women’s genitals, including the clitoris, labia, vagina, G-Spot and cervix provide sexual pleasure for women and their partners.
Learning about these body parts—what they’re called, where they are, and what they do—is important for women’s sexual health and pleasure.
The external area of the female genitals (the parts you can see by looking) is sometimes mistakenly called the vagina. However, the correct term for these outside parts is the vulva. It includes the mons pubis (which is the mound of tissue that forms a triangle between a woman’s legs and is covered with pubic hair), the labia majora (outer vaginal lips), labia minora (inner vaginal lips), and the clitoris and clitoral hood.
It is important to note that not all vulvas look the same. Women’s labia, in particular, come in numerous different shapes, sizes and colors. Also, just like our eyes and ears, the labia are usually not symmetrical. This is completely normal and healthy.
If a woman looks closely at her genitals, and spreads her labia apart, she will be able to see the entrance to the vagina. In scientific terms, the vagina is a fibromuscular tubular tract that connects the cervix (the opening to the uterus) to the outside of the female body. In nonscientific terms, most of us know it as the main female sex organ that tightens and expands and that may produce that “throbbing” feeling during orgasm. The vagina is the part of the body in which a woman may insert a tampon or through which a baby can be born.
When a woman is not aroused, the vagina is typically about 3 to 4 inches in length. When she becomes sexually aroused, the vagina can expand in both length and width, which can make sexual penetration more comfortable and pleasurable.
As women become sexually aroused, more blood flows to their genitals and pelvic area. As blood flow increases, vaginal lubrication passes through the vaginal walls, increasing their wetness. Vaginal lubrication can help to reduce friction during sex, which can reduce the risk of vaginal tearing and help sex to feel more comfortable.
It’s a plus to learn about the female sexual anatomy from both the health and pleasure perspectives. Using TROJAN™ VIBRATIONS Vibrators can help you find new pleasure and develop a more comfortable relationship with your body.
