The outer or visible female genitals is called the Vulva. The slang term Vagina is often used to describe the Vulva, especially by women. The Vagina is an internal organ and it is not medically correct to refer to the Vulva as the Vagina. Other terms often used are private parts, down there, pussy, cooter or cootch and cunt. The word cunt has a more negative connotation and I prefer not to use it. Some women however do refer to it in that manner.
The term ‘pussy’ is frequently used by men and women. The word ‘vagina’ or ‘vag’ is often incorrectly used to describe the vulva. The vagina is an internal part and can not be seen from outside. Other pet names often used are cooch, cooter, down there, girly parts, snatch, pink parts, beaver, box,
The Vulva consists of a few distinctive parts
- The Mons Pubis (Pubic Mound)
- The Labia Majora (Large or Outer lips)
- The Labia Minora (Small or Inner Lips)
- The Clitoris
- The Clitoral Hood
- The Urethral opening (pee hole)
- The Vaginal opening
- The Orgasmic platform
- The Perineum
- The Anus (not really part of the Vulva but since it is involved in sex, I have included it here)
Most of the vulva are there to protect the internal organs and keep it clean, healthy, moist and warm.
The primary parts responsible for protection are:
- Mons Pubis
- Labia Majora
- Labia Minora
- Pubic Hair
- Clitoral Hood
The Clitoris is the only organ in the human body (male or female) with only one function – Pleasure. The clitoris does not have any other function.
