1. When i go to finger myself it feels like i have layers and layers of skin inside my vagina i have to push through.. is this normal? i thought the vaginal canal or whatever it is called is just meant to bbe a hole but when i looked at it with a mirror i can see lots of skin inside and also i have to push through it. its easier when i am 'wet' though.. is this just how the vagina is? (ps it isnt my hymen because this is inside not at the opening.. although u can see it when looking with a mirror a little big as the 'vaginal canal' doesnt look like a hole to me.
2. when a guy says that a girl is 'tight' does that mean how big the vaginal opening is at the start? like the actual hole? or does he mean the inside how tight it feels?
1. This is perfectly normal. They aren't exactly 'layers' of skin though. I used to think like you as well. I thought it was meant to be a hole that goes straight through. The vaginal walls are like muscles so they can move to make room for things that come inside. The vaginal canal doesn't go directly upwards, it faces slightly towards the back a bit. this may help you a bit to insert your finger because you generally don't need to 'push through' much. What you think is skin are just the walls of your vagina. When you insert a finger you go in the middle of this and voila there's your 'hole' you shouldn't really have to push through much though.
2. When guys refer to it as 'tight' they just say that about girls who are virgins or haven't had much sex. The truth is, the inside of the vagina doesn't really become 'lose'. The opening can be stretched or teared, yes, but the inside doesn't loosen over time. Unless you've just had a baby or something, in that case it will probably be a bit looser. However, don't quote me on all this, I'm not completely sure, but its what I've heard. And it makes sense. Personally, I think some guys refer to 'tight' being the opening. That is probably the tightest part. The inside shouldn't be that tight. Girls have to pass through babies through those things! (So the vaginal walls can expand quite a bit)
I hope this helped...and I hope i said everything right too...
