Weird facts you don't know about your vagina

01 September 2016, 12:50

Abuja - Did you ever think your vagina had anything in common with a shark? Neither did we, but in this interesting factual video from Buzzfeed there are loads of interesting facts about the female body.

1.    It’s all Greek to me
The word “vagina” means “sheath of a sword” in Latin.

2.    Women have more feeling down there
The clitoris has a massive 8 000 nerve endings – double that of the penis!

3.    The miracle of birth
The vagina can expand by up to 200% when giving birth.

4.    What do vaginas and sharks have in common?
Did you ever think your vagina had something in common with sharks? Of course not, but it does. The vagina contains squalene, a lubricant substance also found in shark livers.

To find out more interesting and bizarre facts, watch the Buzzfeed video here:
