16 Men Describe What A Vagina Feels Like

“What does a vagina feel like?”

This is a question I recently posed to men of all creeds and ages on Toyboy Warehouse, a cougar dating site I've frequently used in the past for related data. This time, the topic was especially fun and subjective, considering the fact that everybody has very different opinions about what a vagina feels like. The same goes for other body parts: As the possessor of a penis, I'd say my penis feels like a leather stick-shift, loosely wrapped in velvet.

However, having a reproductive organ very different than sexually interacting with one. So, I asked my friend, Tara, a cisgender woman who often has penetrative sex with people with penises, to describe how a penis feels to her. “A hairless cat,” she told me, over Facebook chat. After a mutual exchange of digital laughter — “lmao,” to be exact, because “lol” didn't feel enthusiastic enough — we began discussing what vaginas can feel like, which Tara insisted are exponentially easier to describe.

I spoke to 16 men and male-identifying people about what a vagina feels like, and many disagreed with Tara. According to them, vaginas are not always easy to describe.

Maybe it's best not to generalize what a vagina feels like because honestly, vaginal sex is a completely subjective experience, that feels different to everyone. Additionally, having a vagina is entirely unlike than having sex with someone with a vagina. I will say one thing, though. In my opinion, a vagina feels nothing like a Rubik's Cube.
