Hahaha, funny!! And it is true. It is kind of confusing and certainly inaccurate how "vagina" is commonly used to refer to the vulva. Not to be pedantic, but I think it can be misleading ("do you mean the VAGINA vagina?") and maybe it indicates something about how we view women's sexuality culturally...umm, or maybe I'm reading way too much into it. Haha. But like... what if people called the penis and testes just "the penis." Or something like that. It would be odd.
