The question “Does size matter?” can cause concern for both men and women. Although they may not discuss it often, many women worry about the size of their vagina, especially after having a baby. So, how deep is the average vagina?
While there’s tons of info out there about penis, breast and other human parts, vaginas are pretty mysterious. Interestingly the average vagina is less deep than the length of an average penis, which is probably why most women don’t necessarily think that longer is better.
Let’s make something clear, most people tend to use the word “vagina” to refer to the whole down-there package. The word vagina actually refers to the canal between the vulva and the cervix. In other words, it’s not what you see on “Girls Gone Wild.” That honor is (generally) reserved for the extraneous sections of the female genitals, including the clitoris, inner labia, outer labia and perineum.
On average, the vagina is 3 to 4 inches deep during un-arousal periods, although some women have a vagina that is around 5 to 7 inches deep. As a woman becomes aroused, the vagina expands: as blood flows to the area, the cervix and uterus are pushed up by the upper two-thirds of the vagina to create more space. This expansion helps to accommodate the penis and ease intercourse. The vagina will also become more lubricated when having sex, which helps to further ease penetration.
While the vagina will most commonly expand during periods of arousal, it is possible that the penis can’t fit properly inside, which can make woman feel much pain and discomfort. This could be due to exceptionally large penis size, thrusting too hard or the women is not sufficiently aroused (meaning the cervix and uterus have not been pushed up to let the vagina expand).
Sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson were the first people to look into the depth of vaginas back in 1966.
They measured the lady parts of 100 women who had never given birth and found that vaginal length ranged from 7-8cm (roughly 3ins) when they weren’t aroused.
A more recent study, which included women who had given birth as well, found that the smallest vaginal depth was 6.9cm (2.7ins) and the largest was 14.8cm (5.8ins).
That information is not so neat if you have a micropenis but again the average lad should be ok.
And if you were wondering how your package measures, then here are the figures. According to research, the average length of an erect penis is around 13.2cm (5.2ins) in length and 11.7centimeter (4.6ins) in circumference. And at normal temperatures a non-aroused penis usually measures 9.1cm (3.6ins) from tip to base and 9.3cm (3.7ins) in circumference.
But don’t become overly obsessed with how large or small you are because there are sex positions that can work for any size or condition.
And it’s worth recalling that most women orgasm from clitoral stimulation anyway. Only about 30 percent of women have orgasms from intercourse alone. The clitoris is where the action is. Most women who do orgasm during sex have figured out how to hit their sweet spot, either from positioning or from direct stimulation of the clitoris with fingers.
A study published in the International Urogynecolgy Journal in 2010 found that vaginal length and deepness had no correlation to women’s desire, pleasure, arousal and/or sexual satisfaction. It said that the amount of sexual enjoyment felt was most strongly determined by the connection you feel with your sexual partners.
It’s amazing how much misinformation is out there about the vagina. Given how fascinated our society is with the female body, you’d think we’d be a little more informed. A 2010 Cosmo poll found that 60 percent of women didn’t know a lot about their vaginas. Well, ladies, we’ll forgive for this one. As it turns out, there’s a lot to know.
