Is it true that a boy’s penis can get stuck in a girl while having sex?

No, this is not true. The vagina is the stretchable passage that connects a woman’s external sex organs with her cervix and uterus. The vagina is a tube with walls of wrinkled tissue that lay against one another. The walls open just enough to allow something to go in (or out of) the vagina — like a tampon, finger, penis, or fetus.

The vagina is 2–4 inches long when a woman is not aroused and 4–8 inches long when she is sexually aroused.

The vagina has three functions:

  • to allow menstrual flow to leave the body
  • to allow sexual penetration to occur (either by hand, sex toy, or penis)
  • to allow a fetus to pass through during vaginal delivery
