German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin vāgīna.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈvaːgina/, /vaˈɡiːna/

Noun[edit]

Vagina f (genitive Vagina, plural Vaginen or Vaginas)

  1. (anatomy) vagina
  2. (by extension) the female sexual organs including the vulva

Usage notes[edit]

  • The plural Vaginen is officially standard, although Vaginas is widely predominant in general usage.
  • The stylistic level of Vagina is similar to that of English “vagina”, although the German word is somewhat less current in the vernacular. Both Vagina and the loan translation Scheide are also used to include the vulva (as in English). In formal language, Schambereich or (dated) Scham are also widely used. There is much variation in the vernacular with Muschi possibly being the most common.
