There Are Five Kinds Of Vaginas In The World, Apparently

And they're all wonderful, tbh.

Vaginas! They are so great. But are they all the same? HELLLLLLL TO THE NAH.

Elite Daily writer Jamie Leelo spoke to a former vag waxer by the name of Mel who broke down all the ins and outs of the thousands of vaginas she saw, and came up with FIVE major vagina archetypes.

And let me tell you: WHAT A WILD RIDE.

Of course, not all vaginas fit into these categories, and, hell, what are categories anyway? As Mel noted, "This isn’t a mathematic algorithm. This is just to help women understand this weird ‘secret’ [the appearance of our vaginas] we keep from our friends and society at large is not as scandalous or peculiar as we may have thought."

Also, for clarity, yes, the vagina is technically INSIDE the body, while the vulva is the outside visible part of your vagina.

But, for simplicity's sake, we're gonna refer to the vulva here as a vagina, mmkay? Also, these all have "Ms." names, but ANYBODY can have a vagina.

First up: What Mel refers to as the Ms. Barbie. This is the vag most people picture when they think of a vagina. Actually, says Mel, FEW PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVE THIS VAGINA.

The Barbie look features a vag where the labia majora (outer vagina lips) completely contain the labia minora (inner vagina lips).

In the Ms. Curtains model, the labia minora actually hangs out of the labia majora.

This vag model is much more common .

The Ms. Puffs vag is similar to Ms. Barbie, but the lips stick out a bit more from the pubic bone.

Ms. Tulip is so named because of her resemblance to a blooming flower. The labia minora is exposed "through the entire length of the labia majora," writes LeeLo.

Finally, the Horseshoe vagina has an opening at the top which reveals the labia minora, but then the labia majora cover the labia minora at the bottom.

No matter what it looks like, I think we can all agree:
