  1. Vagina

    The vagina is a fibromuscular tubular tract which is a sex organ and has two main functions; sexual intercourse and childbirth. In humans, this passage leads from the opening of the vulva to the uterus, but the vaginal tract ends at the cervix. Unlike men, who have only one genital orifice, women have two, the urethra and the vagina. The vaginal opening is much larger than the urethral opening, and both openings are protected by the labia. The inner mould of the vagina has a foldy texture which can create friction for the penis during intercourse. During arousal, the vagina gets moist to facilitate the entrance of the penis. The Latinate plural "vaginae" is rarely used in English. Colloquially, the word vagina is often used to refer to the vulva or to the female genitals in general. However, by its dictionary and anatomical definitions, vagina refers exclusively to the specific internal structure.

Examples of vagina in a Sentence

  1. Kukhee Choo:

    Sex is seen as dirty and corrupting in Japan, my students can't use the word' penis' or' vagina,' and if a woman expresses any knowledge or interest in sex, you're seen as a fallen women. Men don't talk about it, either.

  2. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Aphorisms Neurons as quantum threads, neural system as interconnected clouds of galaxies, memory of eternity, genetic philosophy manifests as an echo from the past, ego caricatures of you, in the circulatory system of evolution, undiscovered genomes of awareness, energy channels of the nervous system as wormholes of the cosmos of awareness , they are like veins of dimensions of the philosophy of the universe, interacting dimensions and time epochs, suffering teaches kindness and patience. Poetry your beauty starts the engine with half a turn, tantalizing sexuality, a heart in the twilight without you, you are beautiful before a heart attack, my eternity endlessly craves you, and tastes every moment, every second a romantic poem of love, like endless valleys of aesthetics, landscapes of romance in your body, I know how beautiful my love for you is, the romantic idealism of aesthetics, erase the edges of reality and immerse me in a romantic world in which I am always with you in the depths of my heart, the look of your eyes fills me with beauty and love, and I depend on this look because that this is all I want to see in this life, because through I feel the depths of your spiritual beauty. Serene love of romance, supreme love intensifies to infinity, you are supreme bliss, you are worthy of eternal applause for your beauty, the erotic color of the seduction of your skin, you are the only thing I want to remember in this life, all eternities, I will only idolize you, this will live in my mind, the highest level of aesthetics, the mistress of male lust, the queen of all penises, the queen of male desires, the empress of male love and lust, the goddess of your beauty is worshiped, you are the ingenious uniqueness of eternity, hide in my soul as in a cocoon of love. jokes sex with a skinny mummy is like playing a xylophone made of bones. The squirt of lust will squirt like champagne for the new year when you find her ji point, that is, your gorgeous income. Girls remember their first words for life: no, give, mine, no, and when they grow up they say maybe, in my opinion these are the words of any government. The vague politics of women's relations is unpredictable. The vagina is shaped like a trap, they cut off married men's penises, as they age, they pee while sitting down, because they abstain from sex for too many years, the prostate enlarges. How to deal with haters? I am an energy vampire, I want all your energy, all your mind to drink. I want him to cry because of me, I want him to go to a psychologist because of me, I want him to have nightmares, I want him to constantly think about me, I want his whole head to think only about me and devote his my life, while skipping my own, I feed on his hatred, I see how his psyche is destroyed because of me, I want to dance on the ruins of his mind, if he starts to hate someone else, I will start to be jealous. I want to completely dominate his head, all his thoughts about me, I want his anger to completely destroy him and his karma because of me. And he will certainly go to hell, because of me, because he sinned, God does not forgive everything. If he becomes indifferent to me, then he is cured of his addiction to me.

  3. Alyssa Dweck:

    I would not recommend putting itinsidethe vagina, it’s really tough to get this stuff out, especially if it’s causing a reaction. Fair enough for sexual play if you want to put this stuff on the vulva or other portions of the body and get an erotic experience—that’s fine. But I wouldn’t advise putting it inside.

  4. Old School:

    Beanie Well, let me be the first to say congratulations to you man you have one vagina for the rest of your life. Real smart man.

  5. Rodrigo Duterte:

    Tell the soldiers, ‘ There’s a new order coming from the mayor,' we wo n’t kill you. We will just shoot your vagina. ’.
