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!

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, then Gwendoline Christie aka Brienne of Tarth needs no introduction. While there was disappointment surrounding the finale, and the last season in general, Christie's character was one of the few to remain near and dear to the hearts of fans throughout it all.

Fans wept when they finally witnessed Ser Brienne of Tarth get knighted after six seasons of being one of the most honorable and integrity filled characters to grace the Game of Thrones screen.

Similarly, Brienne of Tarth's final tribute to Jaime Lannister left people both misty-eyed and eager to dedicate countless memes to the moment.

I'm staring at my screen watching the President of the United States speak before a stadium full of people in North Carolina. He launches into a lie-laced attack on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and the crowd boos. Soon they start chanting, "Send her back! Send her back! Send her back!"

The President does nothing. Says nothing. He just stands there and waits for the crowd to finish their outburst.

WATCH: Trump rally crowd chants 'send her back' after he criticizes Rep. Ilhan Omar www.youtube.com

My mind flashes to another President of the United States speaking to a stadium full of people in North Carolina in 2016. A heckler in the crowd—an old man in uniform holding up a TRUMP sign—starts shouting, disrupting the speech. The crowd boos. Soon they start chanting, "Hillary! Hillary! Hillary!"

Flowers are a great way to express your feelings for someone. Red roses say, "I love you," but a whole garden of pink flowers screams it. One husband took the romantic gesture of getting your wife flowers to the next level.

Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki got married in 1956, and Mrs. Kuroki joined her husband on his dairy farm in Shintomi, Japan, The Telegraph reports. The couple lived a full life and had two kids. After 30 years of marriage, the couple planned on retiring and traveling around Japan, but those plans were soon dashed.

When she was 52, Mrs. Kuroki lost her vision due to complications from diabetes. Her blindness hit her hard, and she began staying inside all day. Mr. Kuroki knew his wife was depressed and wanted to do something to cheer her up.

Mr. Kuroki noticed some people stopping to admire his small garden of pink shibazakura flowers (also known as moss phlox) and got an idea. He couldn't take his wife to see the world, so he had to make the world come to his wife.

Policing women's bodies — and by consequence their clothes — is nothing new to women across the globe. But this mother's "legging problem" is particularly ridiculous.

What someone wears, regardless of gender, is a personal choice. Sadly, many folks like Maryann White, mother of four sons, think women's attire — particularly women's leggings are a threat to men.

While sitting in mass at the University of Notre Dame, White was aghast by the spandex attire the young women in front of her were sporting.
