The miracle that is vagina

By Valentine Njoroge December 30, 10:53 am
Can the vagina get back to its size after having sex? What makes the vagina become large? Are there ways to keep it smaller?

Oh wow! It’s myth-busting time! The un-aroused vagina is between 2.5 and 3 inches long. Once aroused, it stretches to about 4 inches, and any additional stretching is in response to the size of the penis. This is why we can have great sex with men who have different sized penises. So the short answer: the vagina returns to size after sex.

Let’s flex

The vagina is a muscular tube surrounded by pubococcygeal (PC) muscles that start at the tip of your spine and stretch all the way to your pelvic bone. Strengthening these muscles is done through exercises that were formulated by a doctor named Arnold Kegel. They work to strengthen the walls of your vagina and give you better control of everything that involves your pelvis: from gyrating to urination to orgasm.

There’s one simple exercise you can begin with. The next time you are urinating, stop the flow of urine. The muscles you use to do this are the PC muscles and that’s what we want to strengthen. To exercise it, simply flex for about two seconds. You should feel a tightening going from your anus down to your vagina.

Your Kegel work-out should involve a minimum of two sets of 15 repetitions three times a week. After a few weeks, you can increase the number of repetitions and the frequency of your work-out.

And during sex, you can relax these muscles as the man pulls out and flex as he pushes in – you will then both experience more friction.

No to vagina tighteners

You must stay away from those so-called 'vagina tightening' soaps and lotions. They affect the vaginal lining, sometimes drying it out so that you get little cuts during sex and thus making you more prone to infections. Kegels are really the best way to firm and tighten your vagina.

As most fathers will attest, there are few things more wondrous than the vagina – how it expands for childbirth and then later shrinks back for pleasure. This is why all men who’ve visited keep applying for another visit.

Am a virgin bt am afraid i hav alredy broken it coz i exercise alot,how does 1 know dat she is a virgin n is it true dat small breast pruvs virginity?i hav small breast too
Hi Pamela, please don't be afraid. first of all, virginity doesn't need to be broken. Thats a common misconception, that force needs to be applied. The more gentle your partner is, the more relaxed and wet you are, the more likely it is that it won't be all that painful. Also, because you exercise a lot, it is possible that your hymen is already stretched, which makes the chance of pain ever smaller. And here is no way of telling,seeing or feeling that someone is a virgin. Even experienced doctors cannot tell. Small breasts are genetic, and not a sign of virginity. Please check our 'Making Love' section, there you will find more information about first time sex. But just relax- the more you worry, the more you will cramp up and the more likely you will experience pain. Does this help?
