1. “Obviously having a period sucks, but having a clit definitely makes up for it. My clit is like the greatest best friend I’ll ever have.” —Ally, 25

2. “Our vagina has two major emotions, horny or angry. When she’s horny she’s great. When she’s angry, it’s probably because she’s bleeding.” —Nichole, 27

3. “Masturbating is awesome because we don’t splurge cum all over the place, we also won’t ever cum in someone’s hair or face which is always a plus.” —Chelsea, 24

4. “It’s not like women walk around feeling different because they have a vagina, we’ve had them our whole lives (for the most part). It’s just a body part between our legs that occasionally (hopefully) makes us feel good.” —April, 25

5. “I wonder how a man would think I’d answer this question. I would love to ask a man what he thinks it’s like for a woman to have a vagina. But per your answer, I think my vagina is one of the more wonderful things about myself. It not only gives me orgasms, it has the ability to bring another life into this world. So yeah, having a vagina makes me pretty fantastic.” —Victoria, 29

6. “Having an orgasm with a vagina is pretty amazing. We’re not like men, it’s not cum and done. Our orgasm isn’t a straight incline and then rapid decline. It’s not like climbing up the mountain and then falling off of it. It’s like climbing up the mountain, repelling from one cliff, to free fall off another and then getting picked up in a helicopter once you reach the bottom. Weird metaphor, but our orgasms are crazy, and I imagine they are way more fun than a man’s.” —Jennifer, 28

7. “I am kind of jealous that I can’t just stand to pee and have to use muscles I don’t have to squat over dirty toilet seats, but I love my V. She makes me happy more often than not.” —Eva, 27

8. “No we do not get horny from inserting tampons into our vaginas, nor does it feel anything remotely close to sex. Just wanted to clarify. But I think our orgasms are most likely incomparable to a man’s orgasm, and by that I mean they’re way better. Less common, but when we do have them, YEAH.” —Catherine, 28

9. “Well, it entails having your body feel like it’s literally trying to kill you once every month. Other than that I don’t think it’s anything special. —Kim, 27

10. “They’re way cuter than a penis. A vagina looks like a tiny butt cheek, a penis looks like an ugly extra limb. As to what it feels like, not sure I know how to answer that. It just feels like your body.” —Haylee, 25

11. “Vaginas are sensitive, sure if you kick us there we’re not going to squirm in pain and fall over, but in terms of infections and bacteria, you can’t mess around. There’s nothing worse than a yeast infection or UTI when you have a vagina.” —Savannah, 24

12. “Every moment is different. If I’m horny, it’s wet. I get wet really easily though, like if I start thinking about sex, I get wet. I don’t necessarily have to be doing anything sexual, just thinking about it.” —Carly, 25

13. “When you’re on your period it feels like you have no control over your body both physically and emotionally. When you’re horny it feels like you just want sex. Pretty self-explanatory. —Christina, 29

14. “Orgasming feels great. You just feel a really strong sensation that somehow travels throughout your entire body and makes you feel weightless, euphoric, and like you have to pee all at the same time. Weird, but good weird, actually GREAT weird.” —Lora, 27

15. “It’s just another body part, one that we are equally self-conscious about, but whenever I feel self conscious of my vag I remind myself that it gives me orgasms.” —Joanna, 28

16. “Cameltoe sucks, so do periods, but I think giving birth to new life kind of makes up for that.” —Diana, 31

17. “If answering what it feels like to have a vagina will help men know what to do with it, then imagine my clit is like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Find it, and when you find it, don’t just leave it there.” —Meghan, 25

18. “I guess you don’t really know what it ‘feels’ like until you masturbate, have sex, or get your period until then you don’t really notice it that much.” —Amy, 26 TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather
