This YouTube star has two vaginas, one kidney

This article is more than 12 months old

She has two vaginas, two wombs, two uteri, two cervixes and two sets of fallopian tubes, but only one kidney.

YouTube star Cassandra Bankson, 22, recently made this startling discovery about her own body.

Miss Bankson, a model who lives in San Francisco, said: "I was shocked and the doctor explained to me that it was like an upside nose."

All the organs are fully functional. 

Both sets of sex organs are connected to the same vaginal opening​.

Very bad cramps

The YouTube star made a video about it, of course.

Miss Bankson said she had very bad menstrual cramps when she was younger and that she would visit the doctor because she was "bleeding for 28 days" or was having "two periods a month".

"It is extremely difficult to deal with because you don't know whether your period is going to last a week or three," Mirror quoted her as saying.

How did she break the news to her family?

"I kind of walked in and said, 'Guess what, mum, I’m twice the woman – I have two vaginas'," said Miss Bankson​.

Sex life

Metro quoted her as saying: "As far as my understanding of how it affects a person’s sex life, for some people having two vaginas can make it very painful, for others I assume there are more nerve endings so it could be more pleasurable."

She added: "I’m definitely nervous about having to explain this to future partners. It’s not something I’m looking forward to."

The young woman has about 780,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel DiamondsAndHeels14.

She shot to online fame making videos on how to use make-up to cover acne.
