Finally! Your Yoni Explained
Yoni is a Sanskrit word that has been interpreted to literally mean the womb, and the female organs of generation. It also connotes the female sexual organs such as "vagina", "vulva", and "uterus", or alternatively to "origin, abode, or source" of anything in other contexts. - Wikipedia
Sacredbody Wellness love to use the word yoni when referring to the female genitals. It is a beautiful word that connects us with our ancestors in the language of poetry and power. There are lots of terms out there that describe your yoni such as: ‘vagina’, ‘flower’, ‘fru fru’, and many more. However, many of us don’t know that these terms are being used to describe a lot of different elements that make up your sacred feminine space. Sacredbody thought it might be useful if we gave an in-depth break down of all the different elements that make up your yoni, and then how best to take care of her!
Let’s first start with correcting this terminology. The vulva is the correct name for the external parts of the female genitalia. This includes the glans clitoris, labia minora and majora, opening of the urethra and vagina (the introitus), and the surrounding tissue.
The hymen is a thin membrane of tissue that surrounds and narrows the vaginal opening. It may be torn or ruptured by sexual activity or by exercise.
The vagina is the tube between the vulva and the cervix. This tube is the connection between your uterus and the outside world. The vagina is what babies exit through during birth, and what menstrual blood exits through during your period. The vagina is also used for insertion, such as with a penis, fingers, female condoms, sex toys, tampons, or menstrual cups.
The vagina can also act as a route to other parts of the body. During penis-vagina sex, ejaculate is deposited in the vagina, allowing sperm to enter the uterus through the cervix. The walls of the vagina can also be used as an administrative route for medications and contraceptives, such as intervaginal hormone creams, the hormonal vaginal contraceptive ring, or vaginal suppository medications.
