Some facts you may not know about the human Vagina:
- The pleasurable nerves are only located on the outer one third of the vagina – any deeper and she’s not feeling it anyway.
- The average vagina is only three to four inches deep.
- Average vaginal width is a little over an inch for most women
- Many women report that men whose penises are too big actually feel uncomfortable during intercourse, even painful.
- Most of the nerve endings that cause females pleasure – eight thousand of them to be precise – are not even inside the vagina. They’re in the clitoris, which is where you want to be spending more of your attention.
- The G-Spot is only about 2-3″ inches inside the vagina on the top (below the bladder) so size has nothing to do with stimulating it. Besides, research shows only a small percentage of women can have vaginal orgasms, but all women can have earth-shattering clitoral orgasms.
- The idea the vagina gets longer and wider when a woman is aroused is a myth. It has never been proven scientifically that it occurs. There are some changes to the walls of the vagina when a premenopausal woman is aroused, but the vagina does not get wider or longer.
A 1996 study: “The shape and dimensions of the human vagina as seen in three-dimensional vinyl polysiloxane casts”. Gynecologic and obstetric investigation 42 (3): 178–182, used vinyl polysiloxane castings taken from the vaginas of 39 Caucasian women, found the following ranges of dimensions:
- lengths (measured using rods): 6.86 to 14.81 cm (2.7 to 5.83 inches);
- widths: 4.8 to 6.3 cm (1.88 to 2.48 inches);
- vaginal entrance diameters: 2.39 to 6.45 cm (0.94 to 2.53 inches)
Research published in 2006 (“Baseline dimensions (non-aroused) of the human vagina”. Human Reproduction 21 (6): 1618–1622.), gave the following mean dimensions, based on MRI scans of 28 women:
- Mean length from cervix to vaginal openings: 6.27 cm (2.46″).
- Mean width:
at the proximal vagina: 3.25 cm (1.27″);
at the pelvic diaphragm: 2.78 cm (1.09″);
at the vaginal entrance: 2.62 cm (1.03″)
Sexually pleasuring a female is not as hard as you think, and penis size doesn’t have to be a factor (unless you are in the extreme size ranges). There are many sexual techniques that can be used, other than intercourse, that can give a female an intense pleasurable experience.
Vagina Myth – It gets longer and wider when a woman is aroused.
There is a myth in society that womens vaginas get bigger when aroused compared to non-aroused. The slang term often used for this is “a wide-on”.
However, an MRI based study done in 2004 (MRI of female genital and pelvic organs during sexual arousal) showed no differences in length nor width from non-aroused to aroused in both premenopausal and menopausal women. The study said:
Measurements of vaginal width, wall thickness and canal length did not change with arousal in both pre- and post-menopausal groups. Vaginal wall enhancement increased with arousal only in pre-menopausal subjects. In the premenopausal subjects there were numerous infoldings of the vaginal mucosa (rugae), creating an irregular surface. Post-menopausal subjects did not have distinguishable mucosal rugae or clearly separate layers of the vagina, presumably due to atrophy and flattening of the vaginal walls (Figure 4). Thus, the lack of enhancement in the post-menopausal group was attributed to smaller tissue volume. There were no discernable changes in the shape, position, or axis of the vagina during the aroused state.
The study does suggest there are changes to the mucosal lining of the vagina during arousal, but they don’t get longer or wider compared to non-aroused state.
