Vaginas are so cool; no really, they are. They do so much and more, without us even knowing about it. But shouldn’t they be given due credit for all their superpowers? We think it’s a big YES! Also, remember it’s time to say the word ‘vagina’ more freely; gone are the times when we would say ‘vajayjay’ or ‘vag’ in hushed tones! It’s time to crown the real hero(ine) and that’s why it’s time to tell you all about what our vaginas are really capable of! Excited to know? Let’s go!

1. It is self-cleaning

Vaginas can clean themselves so well, and that’s why you shouldn’t do anything to disturb that process. You must have noticed that odourless discharge – yes, that’s your vagina cleaning itself, and eliminating all that’s not needed. You may have heard of several beauty companies coming out with special fragrances for your vagina. Say no to them, because your vagina is awesome the way it is! You don’t need it to smell like roses.

Also, watch:

2. It can change its colour

Sounds odd? We were surprised too! First of all, not everyone has a pastel-pink coloured vagina. We’ve been made to believe that everyone’s vaginas look the same. Well, no! And even if you have a rosy pink vagina, its colour will change with age or time. Also, fun fact: when you get aroused, blood rushes down there, and your vulva can turn into a darker shade. Once you are done with sex, it will go back to its original colour. How cool is this?

3. They can expand

What? Shocked again? So are we! But let’s tell you about this awesome fact. Your vagina expands, when aroused. This is also known as vaginal tenting, and guess what? It can double in size. Oh, and if you are someone who believes that having too much sex makes your vagina loose, then it’s time to bust that myth. There’s no such thing, so go ahead and enjoy steamy sessions in the bedroom without a care!

4. You can’t lose anything in your vagina

We’ve been told that tampons or menstrual cups can get lost in your vagina. Really now? No way can you lose anything in your vagina. It’s time to get over these myths. Also, on to the facts now: at the end of your vagina is your cervix, and that remains closed, unless you go into labour. But yes, do not forget your tampon inside the vagina, that could be potentially dangerous.

5. It can lift weights

Your vagina can do a lot, and by that we mean, it can also lift weights. But then is that surprising? After all, it can pop out a human being, and that’s a feat in itself! You can actually perform exercises to make your vagina strong (trust us, the orgasms speak of that). You could begin with contracting exercises, and if you want to push yourself further, you can try vaginal weights.
