I just wanted to ask, that if a couple remains sexually inactive for more than two months, then does the girl's skin down there gets tight again?

No kind of sex makes the skin or other tissue of the vulva or vagina "loose." When people are engaged in sex and are relaxed and aroused, the muscles of the vagina relax, but that's temporary, and isn't about skin.

Some people, or some people sometimes, find that if they take time away from a given kind of sex, it can feel different when they engage in sex again, but that isn't about any skin being looser or tighter.

Okay a follow up question.

So if a girl is highly active, then also it doesn't loosen up?

Nope.

As Heather explained, the vagina is a muscle. It expands and "loosens" with arousal. But this is temporary. The amount of intercourse someone has has no permanent effect on the shape of the vagina.

If the vagina got looser due to sex over time, everywhere we went, we'd be endlessly tripping over piles of tampons all over every sidewalk in town.

Just think about it. [Smile]

It might help to take a look at this, particularly the portions that explain the muscle groups of and surrounding the vagina: With Pleasure: A View of Whole Sexual Anatomy for Every Body
