In brief: "vaginal sweating"

The vagina has convolutions or crypts that allow it to "sweat"(lubricate) during female arousal.
It provides that fluid for intercourse ease and protection of sensitive "female parts".

In brief: Sexual lubrication

There are numerous glands at the vaginal opening that secrete mucus during arousal and sexual activity.
This is to facilitate easy vaginal penetration and comfort during intercourse. Vaginal dryness which is common with menopause is helped by replacing this natural moisture with a vegetable-based oil like crisco, olive oil or astroglide.
