Known for its relatively timely, often hilarious and ridiculously accurate coverage of any topic up for discussion, BuzzFeed, the Internet media outlet is at it again with a trending feature on reproductive health, specifically targeting vaginas.
The 29 Things Everyone With a Vagina Should Definitely Know, is an article in list form (something BuzzFeed is particularly known for doing well), covers topics ranging from safer sex to pleasure.
Illustrations of vaginas and sex positive statements accompany scientific facts like “the vagina is tilted at roughly a 130-degree angle” and “condoms don’t actually make sex worse or less pleasurable” to “other than abstinence, implants and IUDS are the most effective forms of reversible birth control” and “most women will be exposed to HPV in their lifetime.”
From learning how vaginas are like snowflakes (no two are alike) or how they can expand to twice their normal size when aroused, this article helps us better understand the female body and become more comfortable with its subtle nuances in a fun way.
Because ladies, let’s face it, you’re not alone in wondering why you have to insert your tampon at an angle or if the amount of discharge you’re experiencing is normal. Regardless of whether or not you actually have a vagina, we think this is a great educational read about facts everyone should know.
So, ladies and gents, read up.
