12 badass things you didn’t know about the vagina It wasn't until the 1990s that researchers even used MRIs to study its internal structure and sexual function.

The first time you actually encounter a vagina in real life, it can throw you for a loop. There’s all kinds of neat stuff goin’ on down there and most of it shouldn’t be discussed. Still, I’m going to.

The lady flower is as powerful as it is gentle. It’s also as handy as a Swiss Army Knife. Let your brain soak in just a few mind-blowing badass facts about the female organ.

We basically knew nothing about the clitoris until the 1990s

If you don’t know much about the clitoris, don’t blame yourself. It wasn’t until the 1990s that researchers even used MRIs to study its internal structure and sexual function. And it wasn’t until 1998 that urologist Helen O’Connell published her findings on the true scope and size of the clitoris.

And it has double the nerve endings of even the head of a penis

There are about 8,000 nerve endings in the clitoris glans, double the nerve endings as men have at the head of the penis. Not that it’s a contest or anything, guys. Now where did I put my #1 Clitoris trophy…?

The vagina has the strength of a beefy toddler

The ladies are equipped to do some serious heavy lifting with their nether-regions! A Russian woman named Tatiana Kozhevnikov broke the world record when she demonstrated the sheer power possessed by her Herculean muffin: She was able to lift a staggering 31 pounds with nothing but her peach.

World’s strongest vagina breaks own record lifting 14 kilos

A Russian woman has set a new world record, lifting a 14-kg. glass ball with her vagina muscles. Tatiata Kozhevnikova of Novosibirsk, aged 42, has been exercising her intimate muscles for fifteen years, and has already made her entrance into the Guinness Book of Records as the possessor of the world’s strongest vagina, she proudly told

“After I had a child, my intimate muscles got unbelievably weak. I read books on Dao and learned that ancient women used to deal with this problem using wooden balls,” she said. “I looked around, saw a Murano glass ball and inserted it in my vagina. It took me ages to get it out!”

The embarrassing first experience did not scare Tatiana off. She developed quite a taste for vagina fitness, and now she has her exercising balls custom-made.

“You insert one of the balls in your vagina, and it has a string attached to it with a little hook at the very end. You fix a second ball onto this hook.”

The Russian recommends vaginal exercises to all women who want to improve their sex life.

“It’s enough to exercise your vagina five minutes a day, ladies, and in just one week you’ll be able to give yourself and your man unforgettable pleasure in bed,” she says.

Theoretically, her vagina could help carry in the groceries.

One humongous beav

The largest vagina ever recorded belonged to a giant woman named Anna Haining Bates. She was 7-foot-5 and weighed in at a whopping 350 pounds. That is a lot of woman with a lot of vagina.

The Guinness Book of World Records recorded that she gave birth to a 23-pound baby with a 19-inch head.

She went into labor on January 15, 1879. Anna continued in the first stages of labor for 36 hours. Their physician, Dr. Beach, realized that the birth was not going in a normal direction and tried using forceps, but the baby’s head was too large. He called another doctor who also tried using forceps. They put a strong bandage around the baby’s neck to assist with the delivery. The baby was born on January 19, and survived only 11 hours. He was the largest newborn ever recorded, at 23 pounds 12 ounces and nearly 34 inches tall and each of his feet were six inches (152 mm) long.

It harbors a unique organ

The clitoris is the only organ that exists for the sole purpose of providing pleasure.

Clitoris size changes throughout one’s life

Due to hormonal changes, the size of the clitoris increases throughout a woman’s life, becoming about four times larger when she’s in her mid-thirties than it was at the onset of puberty. Woo, a plus side to aging!

Female ejaculation has a tremendous range

At the 2009 Masturbate-a-Thon, a new world record was set in the female ejaculation category. The nameless contestant was able to shoot fluid 10 feet! Let’s just hope her accuracy isn’t as impressive — she could become the ultimate prankster.

The average clitoris is 4 inches long

Don’t judge a book by its cover and don’t judge a clitoris by what you can see of it, as the saying goes, right? The average clitoris is actually around four inches in length, most of it being hidden inside the body.

It can give provide multiple orgasms per encounter

Some women are able to experience multiple orgasms, usually within minutes or even seconds of each other. This is a phenomenon that is not typically experienced by men, and it can vary from woman to woman in terms of how frequently it occurs and the intensity of the orgasms.

The exact physiological mechanisms behind multiple orgasms are not yet fully understood, but it is thought that they may be related to the fact that the female body is capable of maintaining a high level of sexual arousal for an extended period of time. Unlike men, women do not experience a refractory period after orgasm, during which they are unable to become sexually aroused. This means that women can continue to experience sexual pleasure and even have another orgasm shortly after the first one.

The Greeks knew what’s up

The origins of the word “clitoris” have been traced back to the ancient Greek word for “key,” as well as verb “kleitoriazein,” which means to touch or titillate lasciviously or to seek pleasure.

Vaginas and sharks have something in common

They can also both eat men.

In order to maintain its diverse ecosystem, the vagina needs to stay lubed up like a top-of-the-line car motor. The lubrication it produces contains a host of different ingredients, like lactic acid and water. There is even a substance called squalene, which can also be found in shark livers.

The machinery is still rockin’ in your 90s for some reason

The clitoris remains at the peak of its power pretty much forever once it’s mature. Meaning that it’ll give you the same orgasmic capacity when you’re 90 as it did in your 20s

Sorry, Afrunauts! While 85% of you are wonderful people, the other 25% were far too frequently brigades and troll farms.

  1. Please don’t refer to men when talking about nerve endings… The foreskin; which is commonly removed (because of the horrible culture we live in) contains 10-20k nerve endings. So yes, sorry men you got robbed of your sexual pleasure is what it should say.

    Circumcision also removes the gliding of the foreskin and most circumcised men have to replace it with spit or artificial lube every time they do anything sexual.Many circumcised men suffer from meatal stenosis too,from the loss of the protection the foreskin provides.

  2. As an “older “woman who enjoys an orgasm almost every day:

    Orgasm in the elderly does depend on many factors, just as orgasm at any age does, and most of those factors are psychological or based on cultural expectations. Seek and you will find. Don’t seek? Then you will not find. I think most women, as they age, expect to lose sexual response and so they do. Self fulfilling prophecy. I once thought that was true as well. But it isn’t true. I reclaimed my sexuality has an older woman because I missed it, dammit – and I have to say that it was never, ever, as good as it is now.

  3. Did not know about the size increase with age, nor the four (!) inch length. And as far as the clitoris remaining at peak power forever, if only we men and our penises could be as powerful and enduring.

  4. PLEASE don’t let the right wing Gynoticians see this for heavens save….they will go the way of Mississippi and try too BAN vibrators because we know how DANGEROUS female sexuality is among US citizens.

    And while I am on a rant…the female is the only sex with an organ specifically for pleasure!
    Now go do your homework!
