Did you know that what you see as part of the female reproductive system isn’t the vagina? It’s actually the vulva. The vulva is comprised of the external genital organs that include the labia majora, clitoris, mons pubis, bulb of vestibule, labia minora, external urethral orifice, vulval vestibule, and the aperture of the vagina. On the other hand, the vagina is the fibro-muscular tube that connects the vulva to the cervix. It is the tube that makes sexual intercourse, childbirth and menstrual flow possible.

In an un-aroused state, the vagina measures approximately four inches. However, it expands to double its size when aroused (we'll talk more about this process later in this list). It also comprises one of the most complex organs on the female body – the clitoris. This organ is responsible for only one function and that is to provide pleasure. It is so powerful that the highest known number of orgasms achieved by a woman in one hour is 134 compared to the measly 16 by the male gender.

Without further ado, here are 10 absolutely incredible facts about the human vagina:

In the study, 2,453 women who completed the 5-week internet-based study reported that the usage of both water-based and silicone-based lubricants significantly increased their sexual enjoyment and pleasure for solo sex and penile–vaginal sex. Therefore, couples with problems as far as lubrication is concerned are advised to consider using these lubricants during sex.
