Vagina is an unreleased track recorded in late 1981 or early 1982, at Prince's Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The track was recorded for possible use on Vanity 6's album Vanity 6, although it is likely the project wasn't given this title at the time; "Vagina" was the name suggested by Prince for Denise Matthews when she joined the band, but she didn't like the title and agreed to Vanity instead, at which point the project was titled Vanity 6. Assumed credits are given below, but if the song was recorded prior to January 1982, it is likely that it was recorded for The Hookers line-up of Jamie Shoop and Susan Moonsie, or as a demo recording by Prince only, but this is unverified. The song is not known to have been included on any configuration of the Vanity 6 album. Engineer David Z. Rivkin has described the track as "obscene".
