So, this is a little disturbing: a recent survey found that nearly half of the young women in the U.K. don’t know where their vagina is. I know – at first glance, that sentence sounds insane. It’s not that girls think their vagina is located in, like, their elbow or something… it’s that they’re confused about the female anatomy in general. Basically, they don’t know where everything is down there. They were shown a diagram and were asked to locate the womb, cervix, ovaries, vagina, and vulva… and only half were able to accurately identify the vagina.
Oof. I’m sure statistics like this one aren’t for U.K. women alone. Considering the fact that the vagina is a pretty big deal for any woman, don’t you think we should all be able to actually identify it?! Of course we should! I don’t know whether this goes back to poor sex education classes, a lack of interest, embarrassment, or simply forgetfulness, but either way, it needs to change.
We should all know where our vagina is located! And speaking of our down there area, we should also know some other stuff about it as well. Stuff that you should have been taught in school, but… well, it’s entirely possible that that never happened. Here are 10 facts you absolutely need to know about your vagina.
