Aunt Vadge: I haven’t had sex for two years – will my vagina still be ok?

Hi Aunty Vadge… 

I’ve been having sex for years, and now I have stopped doing it for the past two years. I do masturbate, but I’ll not insert anything into me. Will Ms V to be back to normal? Will there be any effect due to masturbating? Thanks for your kind advice.

Yours,
Concerned

Hi there Concerned,

Your vagina will be just fine! Go for it.
Warmest regards,
Aunt Vadge
