Before we dive in, we should start by stating that not all women have vaginas and not all persons who have vaginas are women. Gender is a social construct used widely to put the female and male sex in stereotypical “appropriate” cultural and social roles. We now consider gender a spectrum that is evolving, especially with younger generations.
Alright, now that the previous is out of the way let’s get into dispelling some of the horrid myths surrounding vaginas.
When using the term “vagina”, you are actually referring to the elastic muscular canal located inside the body behind the bladder. This flexible canal allows penetration with a penis, sex toy, finger(s), etc. It is also a passageway for menstruation and part of the birth canal.
The “vulva” is the correct term to use if you want to refer to the visible genital area consisting of the labia majora and labia minora (inner and outer lips), visible parts of clitoris (external glans and clitoral hood), vestibule of the vagina (cleft located between the labia minora), vaginal orifice (slit opening of vagina), and the glands of Bartholin (for vaginal lubrication and mucus secretion).
We all vary to some degree when it comes to our body parts. This is normal and to be expected when looking at human anatomy. The vaginal canal is no exception. It changes in dimensions depending on what is happening. When not aroused, it can range anywhere from 2.75 - 3.25 inches. Though, once you are aroused, the vaginal canal can extend from 4.25 - 7 inches. The cervix (cylinder shape of fibromuscular tissue that connects the uterus to the vaginal canal) helps lengthens things by moving upward in anticipation of penetration. When not in use, the vaginal canal walls are gently collapsed together.
Most can accommodate the average size penis or sex toy (up to 7 inches in length). Others prefer the length of 12 inches plus. If looking for a scientific study to this question, you will find yourself hard-pressed for answers as very few researchers have set out to compile this data. Recent data some pull from can date back to 1966... Um yeah, we don’t think 55 years old is “recent” information either. Hopefully, this will change in the years to come as society pushes for the liberation of female sexuality. It is only right as many studies exist that detail the ins and outs of the penis.
Considering everything, the vaginal canal, as well as the vulva, varies from person to person. All are beautiful and when it comes to sex, with the proper knowledge and tools it is possible to enjoy the one(s) in your life.
