Much like fingerprints, no two vaginas are exactly alike. Unfortunately, we seem to be left in the dark when it comes to this, leaving many of us to wonder: "Is my vagina normal?"

Other than hearing the occasional rude or reductive comment like "she's loose" or "she's tight" from men, most of us don't know what type of vaginas we have, or even that different types exist.

But that is the beauty of the vagina, and the vulva in its entirety. They are beautifully diverse, each and every one wonderful in its own ways.

It's also important to remember that the way your vagina looks isn't of much importance; it's more about how it feels to you — and your partner.

First, let's go over a few terms. Lots of people use the word vagina to describe their entire genital region. But the Mayo Clinic explains its actually the "closed muscular canal that extends from the vulva to the neck of the uterus (cervix)."

The hole on the outside is called the vaginal opening. Other parts of the vulva (the outer genitals) include the labia minora (inner lips), labia majora (outer lips), the clitoris, and the urethral opening (where urine comes out).

Now that we've cleared that up, let's talk about the variety of vaginas and vulvas out there, so you can figure out what type of vagina you have.

Here are 8 different types of vaginas men described and what they think about each.

1. The bony vagina

What it says about you: Chances are if you're on the petite or thin end of the size spectrum, you may have one of these. This type of vagina is more narrow and bonier than most. The exciting part about it is that it allows for a tighter fit that ensures a sensational sexual experience.

Male review: The snug fit makes for great sex and stimulation. Although it often leads to great sex, it can be a little uncomfortable when a sensitive body part is conjoined with a bony one.

2. The full lip vagina

What it says about you: Simply put, you've got plumper lips than the rest. They are so pert that they practically scream for attention. And, they're just so darn kissable.

Male review: Luckily, guys agree. Fat lips are a crowd pleaser amongst the male population. Sources tell us that they are the softest of the bunch, very inviting and easier to find for penetration. Not to mention, it makes the men excited for some lip on lip action if you know what I mean.

3. The shaved vagina

What it says about you: You're so into making sure everything is clean shaven, prim and proper, and the sexiest of the pack, but sometimes you run into a few mishaps.

Male review: Guys definitely notice when a woman puts a great deal of work into keeping her pubic hair perfectly tamed with a Brazilian wax. Ingrown hairs are not uncommon but, fortunately, there are ways to avoid them. Getting onto a consistent waxing or shaving regimen can help, and an alcohol based toner can help reduce shaving boo-boos.

4. The expert vagina

What it says about you: You're experienced and the vagina isn't shy about it. You have a wider, large vagina. At least that's what some men think. The truth is, the vagina expands as we get aroused.

Male review: Guys like to pretend to like the easy entry, but in reality they are worried that their equipment isn't big enough to please you. This may lead to major bruised egos. Letting them know how great they are can do wonders, so don't be afraid to stroke that ego a bit.

5. The vagina with extra skin

What it says about you: No, we are not talking about vagina tattoos, although that's a thing, too.Your vagina loves to accessorize with lots of extra skin in the surrounding area.

Male review: The common misconception is that this type of vagina seems like its old, run down, tired or just got off a major diet. Fortunately, men really don't mind the extra flappy labia skin, so don't be afraid to embrace it.

6. The 70s or 80s vagina with lots of pubic hair (aka a full bush)

What it says about you: You've got a thing for comfort and relaxation and your vagina shows it. Shaving down there really isn't a priority to you.

Male review: For the most part, guys don't normally have an issue with an unshaven vagina with a full bush, so don't feel obligated to start a new shaving regimen. Just keep in mind that finding Pleasure Island can get difficult while hiking through the jungle.

7. The virginal vagina

What it says about you: Your body is as tight as it gets from those slender arms to that tight vagina. In fact, the walls may actually be closing in.

Male review: If you own one of these, you're in luck because guys give this one two thumbs up. The snug fit allows for heightened sensations and a major confidence boost. Guys never have to worry about whether or not they are big enough, and the close fit definitely makes them think your vagina was made specifically for them.

8. The peek-a-boo vagina

What it says about you: You definitely know how to work the room, but you're not exactly the life of the party. You've got that clitoris that is out just enough to give the perfect tease.

Male review: A perky clit makes for the perfect plaything for the male species. Plus, they love the bigger orgasms girls seem to get with these. It makes them feel like they did their job just right.

Remember that vaginas come in all shapes and sizes. There is no such thing as the "perfect vagina." A good man will love you no matter what type of vagina you happen to have.

Don't forget to embrace your vagina regardless of what it looks like. After all, it makes you the beautiful and unique woman that you are.
