A worrying new survey has revealed that around half of Brits don’t know where the vagina is – and worryingly, it’s not just the men.
The survey, by YouGov , asked 2,010 participants to label a diagram of the female genitalia.
Worryingly, half of the respondents struggled to identify the vagina (52%), urethra (58%) or labia (47%).
While you might expect it to be the men to get this wrong, the results revealed that almost half of women (45%) incorrectly labelled the vagina.
Forty-six per cent didn’t know that you shouldn’t wash the inside of your vagina, while a third said they thought they should wash their vagina daily.
This is despite the fact that the vagina is self-cleaning and cleaning it can damage the natural balance of bacteria, leading to infections.
