Back in the day, vaginas were pretty confusing to people. Science has advanced and thankfully people know the basic functions of a vagina, but we really shouldn't forget how ignorant people were. From the clitoris being a deadly warning sign to period blood killing sperm, there were plenty of crazy myths about the vagina. Here are five of the craziest lies about our lady parts.
The first time I got my bikini waxed, I did so on impulse. I'd been walking around the city, when I walked passed a random salon offering a sale on Brazilian waxes when I decided, YOLO, and walked in to ask a strange woman to rip hair out of my most intimate area, by the root. That, it turns out, was a bad idea. I was so not prepared for what was about to go down. I didn't know that I was supposed to have prepped my lovely lady bits or that I couldn't do certain things right after getting her de-fuzzed. I also didn't know what I should have been looking for in a good quality salon. It's not like health inspectors go around slapping letter grades on waxing salons like they do cuchifritos. If only!
Listen, as we get older, everything ages--including our beloved vagina. After puberty, the vagina becomes quite busy. Sex and babies are just some of the major changes the vagina experiences, but there are other physical and hormonal ones you probably don't know about. As our vaginas age, we need to transform our behavior to address those changes. For instance, in our 30's we probably need to start using a water base lubricant before sex and we have to start wearing looser pants. Keep reading, so you can learn how your vagina changes throughout the years.

People have been using makeshift lube since the dawn of time, and though we've come to understand a lot about the effects certain "natural" substances can have down there, you'd be surprised to know just what kind of crazy things some couples are still using to get wet and wild. Now, not all natural lube alteratives are bad. Many are great--not to mention they're cheap and handy. However, there are a few slippery substances out there that have no business being anywhere near your lady bits. Use the wrong homemade lube and you run the risk of going from hot and bothered to burning and irritated.
Lots of men would like to have us believe their packages are simply too large for most women to handle. That's cute. Let them keep believing that. But you at least owe it to yourself to know the truth. According to Dr. Lauren Streicher, author of Sex RX: Hormones, Health, and Your Best Sex Ever, most vajayjays are able to fit all shapes and sizes of penises, "given appropriate arousal and lubrication." That said, should you not be able to fit your partner's P into your V, chances are you may be dealing with one of two totally annoying, but totally reversible, sex related issues--both of which have nothing to do with the size of your man's package. But one of which has everything to do with how he throws down in the bedroom. So take note, ladies AND gentlemen.

Not only does it make sex painful--if you can even manage penetration at all--but it could lead to irritation and you'll be feeling sore for days afterwards. Below, some of the causes for vaginal dryness so you can pinpoint why it's feeling like the Sahara Desert down there.
