In a recent episode of her podcast, Bachelor alum Becca Byrne addressed a listener’s question about how many holes women have down there. The truth is, it depends on how you define “hole.” If you’re counting bodily openings that lead inside the body (like the nostrils, mouth and ears), then women have six of those. But if you’re talking about sexually sensitive areas like the vagina and anus, then women have one of those.
The vagina is the main opening to the female reproductive system and it’s used for sex and childbirth. The anus is at the end of the rectum and it’s used for bowel movements.
There is also a small, thin membrane called the hymen that partially covers the vaginal opening. It can be perforated, stretched or even completely torn depending on the type of physical activity, tampon use or sexual intercourse a woman has.
There are also tiny pores on the surface of our skin that help us sweat and release toxins. And don’t forget the G-spot! It’s an area on the lower portion of the vulva that swells slightly during arousal and it’s very sensitive. In Sanskrit, these 9 openings are called nava dwara.
