Physiology of vulva

 

Vulva serves as lips of the vagina which closes it the same way the lips of the mouth close the mouth. There are two lips in the vulva-

They contain the greater vestibular glands and contain skin and subcutaneous tissue to include bulbospongiosus  which act as the involuntary sphincter of the vagina. It beats or contracts rhythmically at orgasm or climax and is attached to the clitoris which it controls in its clitoral orgasm.
