It’s no secret men and women are different. John Gray cashed in with Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus a little over 20 years ago to the tune of 50 million copies. In fact, that book was the best-selling non-fiction book sold in America in the 1990s outside of The Bible. Clearly, there’s an interest in understanding what makes our bodies tick, and what makes them different.

Simply put, the differences are physical, even if they manifest themselves as emotional or mental. From the early days on the playground, we all wonder what the heck is going on with the other gender. Biologically, men and women are different and an understanding of that difference can help to better connect with members of the opposite sex.

As far as understanding their own bodies goes, doctors say that women too often don’t understand what is normal and abnormal, especially when it comes to issues surrounding their sex organs. While it’s important to always get checked if you think something is wrong, most women find that their concern is also a concern among many other women and more often than not, nothing is wrong. It’s just still taboo to talk about certain things for a lot of women, but hopefully that is changing.

So whether you’re a man trying to figure out just why women act that way or if you’re a woman who wonders if something going on in your body is normal or not, we provide 12 things you didn’t know about the female body.

3 Intercourse can hurt long after giving birth

2 It’s OK if breasts are different sizes

1 The G-Spot is the Clitoris

Mathematically speaking, it’s safe to say that an orgasm for a woman is twice as strong as one for a male's because a women has double the nerve endings (nearly 8,000) at or near her clitoris as a male does on his penis. Not only that, those clitoral nerve endings control 15,000 other nerves in the pelvis. While slight variations in anatomy around the vulva may still make women more aroused with traditional vaginal sex, most women report stimulation of the exterior part of the clitoris to be the mythical G-spot. One of the best ways for someone to tell they’ve satisfied their female partner is if the clitoris becomes erect, like a penis. That’s right, women get erections, too.
