10 Super Wild Vagina Facts You Never Knew Before

6. Pubic hair actually serves a function.

You probably already know pubic hair acts as a protective buffer to the vagina. But did you know that it also signifies to potential mates that you are biologically ready for procreation? Furthermore, pubic hair serves as a literal pheromone carpet in that it traps your sexy smells and draws in all the honeys. So maybe think twice before dishing out $60 for that Brazilian.

Also, while the hair on your head can live up to seven years, pubic hair has a life expectancy of about three weeks. That’s why it only grows so long.

7. Your vagina can fall out.

Vaginal prolapse happens when the vagina falls from its normal location inside the pelvis toward the opening of the vagina. In super harsh cases it can actually protrude outside of the body. It’s like giving birth to your uterus. This can happen after childbirth or menopause due to weakened pelvic muscles, but it is rare and can be repaired with surgery.

8. Vaginas and sharks have something in common.

Vaginas and sharks share the substance squalene. It is commercially extracted from shark livers for use in pharmaceutical vaccines and is also a natural vaginal lubricant.

9. Not all vaginas have hymens.

Not all women are born with a hymen. Women who are have hymens in all different shapes, thicknesses, and sizes. You may or may not bleed your first time having sex and whether you do or you do not may or may not be because you do or do not have a hymen. You follow? Basically just don’t worry about a hymen.

10. Your vagina = a fine wine. 

The normal vaginal pH for vaginas is 3.8 to 4.5 and most wines’ pH fall around 3.0 or 4.0; about 3.0 to 3.4 is desirable for white wines, while about 3.3 to 3.6 is best for reds. Ah, the world makes sense once more.
