The word vagina is often used as a euphemism for the whole works down there, including both internal and external structures. It is, however, incorrect. Vulva is the proper term. As Wikipedia puts it, “[t]he vulva (Latin: wrapper or covering) consists of the external genital organs of a woman. The vulva includes the mons pubis, labia majora, labia minora, clitoris, vulval vestibule, urinary meatus, greater and lesser vestibular glands, and the vaginal opening. The urinary meatus is also included as it opens into the vulval vestibule.” The vagina is strictly internal. It’s the “love tunnel” that leads to the uterus. Labia means “lips.” By the way, the image above is Georgia O’Keeffe’s Black Iris VI, painted in 1936.
