Just as women can have different sized breasts, hands, and feet, the size and depth of vaginas can also vary. According to one study, the average depth of a vagina is about 3. Other sources suggest that the average range of size may be about 3 to 7 inches approximately 7. In fact, the depth of the vagina from the opening to the tip of the cervix can measure anywhere up to 7 inches Several types of tissue line the inside of the vagina, including the mucosa.

Skip navigation! Story from Fertility Diaries. The A-spot is a part of female pleasure that we barely ever discuss, but it deserves its day in the sun.
We all know that the vagina is a versatile thing; it gives birth to babies , bleeds every month and can give immense pleasure. And such a complex body part has plenty going on behind the scenes, too.

These are the suckers you will feel undulate and contract around your shaft as she climaxes, particularly when in tight positions such as standing doggy with her legs closed.

Once you are naked and you have kissed the nape of her neck and the curves of her breasts, felt her nipples stiffen and generally brought her to a state of erotic surrender, you will want to focus on making her deeply turned on. The trick is the appropriate marriage of clitoral and G-spot stimulation.
