"tastes like fish" uh NO … medically if your partner tells you that you "taste like fish" then they also should tell you to "go get checked out for a vaginal infection"… since that is NOT the "normal taste" of a healthy vagina

Most everyone knows about their vaginal opening, urethra, and anal opening, so why does the article discuss the vagina and say there are three holes? Poorly written paragraph.
