Attention is drawn to the fact that the anterior vaginal wall is not a simple mucous membrane but an active organ, with a hammock-like effect on the urethra. It also functions during intercourse to transmit the effect of penile introduction into the vagina to the clitoris, by stretching the two ligaments that insert around its base.
