Sex

I was born a female, I identify as being female, and I will most likely die this way. I love being woman. It suits me well.

For me, having a vagina is a dream (even if sexism is still a massive problem). Guys may be able to pee standing up, but their junk also hangs out for all the world to see and potentially maim! As a woman, my reproductive organs get to rest safely inside of me, well protected.

That said, I have often wondered what it feels like to have sex as someone who puts their penis inside a vagina.

What does a vagina feel like from the inside for men?

From a medical perspective, the inside of a healthy vagina, aka the vaginal wall, should feel similar in texture to the roof of your mouth, although a bit softer and more pliable.

But while I can imagine what it feels like to pee standing up, I will never know what it feels like to put a penis inside of a vagina, or what a vagina feels like from that specific perspective.

This is something my female friends and I have talked about, and I thought the time had come to finally just ask men the simple, direct question: "What does it feel like when you put your penis inside a vagina?"

I put the question out there and the anonymous men of the Internet gladly spoke up. Some got poetic, others got terse, and others tried to make it scientific — but they all agreed on one thing and one thing alone: It feels awesome.

So, without further adieu, here's what men say it feels like to be inside of a woman's vagina during sex.

1. Being inside of a vagina feels like getting the best massage ever.

"Like getting massaged in a skin-tight hot tub."

2. The feelings of a vagina varies from woman to woman.

"All vaginas are different, so it can vary a lot depending on who the 'her' is. The strongest sensations are wetness and the texture of her walls. Some women are 'ridgier' than others. Some are wetter than others. My favorite feeling is being clamped down on as she's having an orgasm. I'm not a masochist, but sometimes when it's particularly hard clamping I enjoy it a lot from an ego perspective."

3. The inside of a vagina feels like a... baby seal?

"Warm, wet and smooth."

4. Being inside of a vagina feel like being alive.

"What does it feel like to be alive? That's my best answer."

5. The inside of a vagina feels like a... pillow?

"Like a squishy, wet pillow with ruffles ..."

6. It's a feeling of light-but-intense pressure.

"When you put the head of the penis in, there's slight pressure. If the woman is clenching her Kegel muscles, you can feel that. Keep sliding in. It feels so good, I could let my whole body go limp (except my penis) and just stay in there. I'm uncircumcised and strongly believe there is far more sensitivity with the foreskin as it creates extra friction as it slides in and out of the vagina."

7. Being inside of a vagina can hurt a little, but in a good way.

"It all depends on how she is shaped, the penis is shaped, level of arousal, kind of foreplay ... but I have experienced anything from very tight grip to almost no feeling, very wet to quite dry and anything in between — even been held in a totally firm grip without any way of movement while she had an orgasm. It actually hurt, while also being very sexy!"

8. The way each vagina feels also depends on the sensitivity level of the penis in question.

"Personally, I'm not sensitive enough to discern texture unless it's a drastic difference, which has only happened a couple of times. Mostly what I notice is tightness and shape, which, again, varies widely."

9. Being inside a vagina feels like nothing else in the world.

"It feels incredible. The penis is surrounded by wet warmth. The psychological experience of being completely penetrated into a vagina is incomparable. It feels like power, potential and freedom at the same time."

10. The inside of a vagina feel like... warm chocolate cake?

"It's warm and moist and soft, but with some degree of resistance."​

Well, there you have it.

There are endless ways to explain what it feels like to be inside of a vagina from a man's perspective. But no matter how they describe, they all agree that it feels amazing.
