The Female Anatomy: My Vagina Anatomy


My Vagina: Vulva, Vaginal Opening, Clitoral Hood, and the Vaginal Lips


The female vagina anatomy is frequently compared to a flower, and there is a good reason for that. Every part of a woman’s sexual anatomy is interconnected in a way that is similar to the way that one flower petal leads to the next. If you stroke a flower and you find that a petal is missing, you will feel lost. The same thing is true of the female genitalia. In order for you to find all the right spots, you have to be able to look at the genitalia as a series of petals that all need attention. Only then will you be able to help her – or yourself – flourish and bloom.

The vaginal opening: The opening to the vaginal canal from the cervix to the outside of the body



Did you know?

Sometimes the clitoris is too sensitive to be rubbed when the clitoral hood fully pulled back.

When many people refer to the vagina anatomy, they tend to group everything into the common name of the vagina. What most people do not realize is that there is a difference between the vulva and the vagina – and it’s a big difference. The vagina consists of a woman’s vaginal opening and everything that lies within it. The vulva consists of everything else that has to do with a woman’s sexual anatomy such as the clitoral hood and the inner lips. That bit of information may not come in handy during dinner conversations, but it will certainly help you distinguish one part of the female anatomy from another.

Female Anatomy: The Outer Lips

As you begin your quest of learning about the female anatomy, you should start with the spots that are easiest to find. Ironically enough, the spots that are easiest to find are also the parts that are easiest to ignore. A woman's outer lips, also known as her labia majora, are exactly what they sound like. They encompass the protruding area on the outside of the vulva. Just because they are not the outside does not mean that you should ignore the outer lips. Since this part of a woman's anatomy is frequently ignored, it will be extra sensitive to your touch.

Female Anatomy: The Inner Lips

As the name might imply, a woman's inner lips, or her labia minora, are located on the inside of her vulva. They can best be described as the fleshy curtains that surround all of the areas that are considered hot spots. You may again be tempted to ignore this set of lips because you are in a hurry to get to the good stuff. Refrain from that temptation and remember that all parts of a woman's genitalia are sensitive, even if they do not directly lead to an orgasm.

Female Anatomy: The Clitoris

This is the body part that you've been anticipating. A woman's clitoris is the most sensitive part of her body. In fact, the clitoris is the most sensitive part of any human's body. This tiny little nub has more nerve endings than what can be found in an entire penis combined. Given its sensitivity, the clitoris usually hides itself under a tiny little raincoat known as the clitoral hood. If a woman is highly aroused, her clitoral hood may retreat and expose her clitoris in all its glory. However, many women need a bit of help in this area, so you may have to pry the tiny bump of skin back. Once the hood is peeled back, the clitoris will be exposed. You will be able to identify the clitoris once you find the smooth, small, and round piece of flesh that wasn't there a moment ago. Since the clitoris can range from the size of the tip of a pen to the tip of a finger, it may be hard to locate. Once it is located, you should always treat it very gently because it does not take much unwanted pressure to make the clitoris hide under its hood again.

Female Anatomy: The Vagina

As you already know, the vaginal opening is the area that must be penetrated to make sex possible. Once you get past the vaginal opening, you will find yourself within the realm of the vagina. Here you will find quite a few body parts, most of which will not make a huge difference in her life. The only thing that you should really know about inside the vagina is the g-spot – but that's a topic for a whole another article!

Now that you know what you are dealing with, you should be able to make that flower bloom. Just be sure to pay attention to every part of a woman's sexual anatomy and your job should become as simple as it is pleasurable.
