Vagina Anatomy

Most guys, and many women, don't have a full understanding of the female sexual anatomy. For women, this knowledge can come through personal exploration and experimentation.

For guys, a guided tour is needed.

This article introduces and discusses the major elements of vagina anatomy, offering a sort of road map for future exploration.

.The hood of the clitoris (A) is a sort of sleeve of skin that protects the sensitive clitoris (B).

Sometimes the opening of the urethra (C) gets confused with the clitoris by guys who don't know their vagina anatomy. If you make that mistake, she'll set you right in about three seconds. Women are much more susceptible to urinary tract infections than men, so don't mess with the urethra unless she asks you to.

The inner (D) and outer (E) labias are sensitive and should not be neglected during foreplay or cunnilingus.

The opening of the vagina (G) is sensitive, and the vaginal canal (see below) for the first two inches. Remember that when you're playing with sex toys. Deeper penetration, beyond the first two inches, often isn't necessary.

The anus (I) isn't designed for sex but nonetheless many couples engage in anal penetration and anal sex. Make sure you don't cross-contaminate the vagina with anything that's touched the anus. Use lots of lube and go easy.

Vagina Anatomy: The Incredible Visible Woman

Female anatomy

In this diagram you can see approximately where the vagina is in relation to the bladder and anus. The urethra is between the clitoris and vaginal opening -- don't worry if you lick it a few times, but don't mess with it too much.

The G spot is about two inches inside the vagina, on the belly side. It's a rough patch about the size of a quarter that you should feel when the woman's aroused. When you're stimulating the G spot, you're actually rubbing a series of glands through the vagina wall - glands that line a section of the urethra. These glands function similarly to the male prostate.

The pubic bone is an important part of vagina anatomy, even though you wouldn't think so. In the proper sexual positions, the pubic bone grinds against the man's pelvis, mashing the clitoris in between and allowing a woman to have an orgasm during sex. Woman-on-top positions are best for this, but putting a pillow under her bottom during missionary-position sex works as well.

Everything else you need to know about vagina anatomy you can learn from your partner. Ask questions, experiment with different types of touch and touching in different places.

You don't need to be an anatomist to give a woman an orgasm. But a little knowledge goes a long way.
