A strange thought about biology.

As I mentioned a few days ago, my friend Andi recently went in for sex reassignment surgery. One of the things that greatly concerns male-to-female transsexuals is having enough vaginal depth to be able to have sex comfortably. I was talking to some of my other friends about this, and we observed that although there are figures all over the place for the average length (and breadth) of a human male's penis, none of us have ever seen figures for the average depth of a human female's vagina. I mean, on the basis that one is designed to fit into the other, in theory the average vagina should be about the same size as the average penis - but has anyone actually ever measured it?

I said that I didn't mind measuring mine and letting them know how deep it is, but later I realised that poking a ruler up there might hurt. Someone else suggested that I get a dildo with a scale marked on it, but does anyone make such a thing? Perhaps I should write to various sex toy manufacturers and suggest it!
