vulva (plural vulvas or vulvae or vulvæ)

  1. (anatomy) The external female sexual organs, collectively.

Vagina is often used to refer to the vulva or female genitals generally, even though strictly speaking the vagina is a wholly internal structure. Calling the vulva the vagina is rather like calling the lips the mouth or throat.
