Its posterior surface is separated from the rectum by the rectouterine excavation in its upper fourth, and by the rectovesical fascia in its middle two-fourths; the lower fourth is separated from the anal canal by the perineal body.
As the terminal portions of the ureters pass forward and medialward to reach the fundus of the bladder, they run close to the lateral fornices of the vagina, and as they enter the bladder are slightly in front of the anterior fornix.

 Vagina dentata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The myth of the vagina dentata in the Western world was popularized chiefly by Sigmund Freud, who found that it neatly meshed with his theories concerning castration anxiety.
Freud bestowed this name on the phenomenon, inspired by a number of legends about women with vaginas which were supposed to contain teeth or other weapons, and with which they were supposed to be able to murder or castrate their sexual partners.
The actual vagina is of course not able to bite, as the pubococcygeus muscles are not as strong as a human jaw.

 Kathryn Jean Lopez on Vagina Monologues & Loyola on National Review Online
When it was developed a number of years ago, the Vagina Monologues was done as a vehicle to empower women to speak of their experiences as women.
I've never actually understood what about the Vagina Monologues is "empowering." So I've always interpreted the contention to mean that feminists think male-bashing is empowering; aside from being angry and sad (in the pathetic sense), the play is anti-male.
You know, if the Vagina Monologues is really that important a contribution to American society, there's another debate to be had over whether some psych class — or whatever — should read it and debate it.
