We good? 

Anyway, the internet just uncovered a video showing the INSIDE of a vagina while the woman it belongs to has sex — and the weirdest part about it? It wasn't made by PornHub. (Though we wouldn't be surprised if someone's already uploaded it to their site.)

The clip was part of a 2010 show called A Girl's Guide to 21st Century Sex that ran on television in the U.K., according to Glamour. (We think it's fair to say that their censorship guidelines are a little less strict than those in the U.S.) 

To get a VERY up-close-and-personal look at what happens to our bodies when we have sex in missionary position — the second most popular sex position among people in their 20s and 30s — researchers attached cameras to the couples' skin, one of the woman's nipples, the man's penis, and the inside of the woman's vagina.

Once you get past how truly awkward this whole setup is — like, there's no way she's comfortable with that cord hanging out of there — this project's findings are actually kind of interesting. Here are all sorts of fun facts we learned from the expert (we think/hope?) who was being interviewed for the clip while the couple got it on: 

  • Missionary position allows for "direct stimulation of the clitoris" because of the way the vulval lips open!
  • The woman's nipples stay erect throughout sex!
  • The woman may feel her heartbeat in her vagina and throbbing in her pelvis as she get closer to climaxing!
  • Having sex in the missionary position is thought to be more likely to lead to conception compared to other positions because it allows semen to collect right outside the woman's uterus!

And there you have it.

Here's the full NSFW clip if you want to see our brave participants (and their genitals) in action:
