10 things you probably didn't know about vaginas

What do sharks and vaginas have in common?

You are getting very ... informed. #hypnotizedbyfacts

Let's break that down.

Laci Green made a super-interesting list (with details in the video at the bottom) of some of the little-known facts about vaginas. Like what?


Like...

1. The vagina is a lot like a sock (but not because you should put feet in it).


It's because of how it's shaped! It's a pathway of muscles that's flat when nothing is in it. And there's a top that keeps things from getting lost.

2. Vagina is Latin for ... SWORD HOLDER? Haha. That's kind of funny.

I'm just gonna let that register for a sec.

3. The V can get an E too. E stands for erection.



A vagina can expand 200% when it's turned on. SERIOUSLY.

4. Can you *really* pop that cherry? Nah.



5. VAGINAS AND SHARKS.

Have you ever heard of squalene? I sure hadn't. Laci explains it at 1:27.

6. Whatchu know about the G-spot?

It's not a mystery! It sits about two inches inside the vagina. Go find it. (Or don't.)

7. Do vaginas with teeth actually exist? Oh my.

Just to say it: She doesn't say yes, but she also doesn't really say no either. There have been cases of teeth in ovaries and in utero!

8. Vaginal orgasms are way less common than clitoral.

Only 25% of women get them, yo.

9. 1 in 5,000 female babies is born without a vagina. It's true.

It's called vaginal agenesis. I didn't know much about it, but she does a good job explaining what it is and how it can be treated.

10. Vaginal confidence is important because duh! It's your BODY!


The human body is kinda weird, right? Or maybe we've just made it seem that way because we generally don't talk about certain parts of it ... like the "private" parts, especially. But maybe we should? Talking about our body parts shouldn't be embarrassing. We're sorta stuck with them. We're all unique. It's life. And when you learn to embrace your differences, that's when you really get to start being yourself. Just a thought!

Anyone who has spent a day in a classroom knows that teachers—especially teachers of young kids—are superhuman superheroes. And any parent who has spent a day outside of a classroom trying to wrangle a group of young kids through a field trip would describe teachers in even stronger language than that.

That's what dad blogger Clint Edwards of No Idea What I'm Doing: A Daddy Blog discovered on a recent trip to a pumpkin patch with his daughter's kindergarten class. The father of three and author of a new book, "Silence is a Scary Sound: And Other Stories on Living Through the Terrible Twos and Threes," penned a tribute to teachers everywhere that has gone viral for the hilariously real truth it describes.

Healthcare dominated much of the Democratic debates this week, and for good reason. Multiple polls show that healthcare remains Americans' top concern.

My teenage daughter recently had some blood work done, and the total cost was more than $1000. After insurance, we have the honor of paying $200. For blood work. For nothing to be wrong.

Was the lab testing her blood with gold and platinum? Were they sending it to space and back? I mean seriously, how on earth could blood tests cost $1000?

Meanwhile, in other countries, we have people giving birth, having surgeries, fixing broken bones, as well as basic blood work, for no out of pocket cost whatsoever.

In today's episode of WTH, professional accounting services firm Ernst & Young has taken gender dynamics in the workplace to a whole new level. And by whole new level, I mean totally batsh*t backwards.
