Have an embarrassing s*x question? Chances are someone else has already asked it on Reddit (or hey, maybe that was you!). Known as “the front page of the internet,” Reddit is where web-savvy people crowdsource answers to pretty much any question…like this one. Feel free to check out what other commenters had to say, but we went straight to an expert to get the facts. Check it out, below:

The question: I’m just curious if having a large amount of s*x actually alters the size/shape of the v**ina. Also, if a woman sleeps with a man with a very large man-hood many times, will her v**ina change shape permanently? Or will it snap back to its original form eventually?

The expert: Lauren Streicher, M.D., associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and author of Love s*x Again.

The answer: Relax! The female body is designed to adjust to be elastic and expand to accommodate everything from a large man-hood to childbirth, says Streicher. “Even the largest man-hood in the world won’t compare to the size of the baby, so it won’t affect the size of the v**ina.”

See, the v**ina actually goes through physical changes when you’re aroused. Increased blood flow to the area helps to lubricate the bumpy walls of the v**ina, called rugae. Once the rugae relaxes, it unfolds, essentially giving your body more space to accommodate a man-hood, no matter the size. Sometimes the body’s natural lubrication isn’t enough, especially with a larger man-hood. In those cases, Streicher recommends adding a lubricant that’s non-water-based. “It helps makes the v**ina extra slippery, making s*x more comfortable—and more fun.”

If you’re feeling not-quite-as-tight-as-usual right after s*x, that’s normal; your v**ina just expanded to accommodate your guy…for a good amount of time. But again, this will bounce back to normal pretty quickly—anywhere from a few minutes to a couple hours, says Streicher.

Usually if there’s an issue with things not feeling tight, it’s not the v**ina—it’s actually the muscles around it known as the pelvic floor, says Streicher. Kegels may help, but most women don’t do them correctly or consistently. So Streicher recommends talking to your gyno or a pelvic floor specialist who can recommend specialized exercises or devices to help stimulate and strengthen the muscles down there.

Bottom line? A large member won’t change the shape of your v**ina permanently. Just make sure you’re using plenty of lube—and foreplay—to ensure a comfortable and pleasurable fit.
