Is crooked vaginal piping a problem?

GirlFilter: I am crooked... inside. Travelers to my vagina would find themselves taking an abrupt right turn 2 or 3 inches in. Is this normal? Do I have to marry a crooked man?

The angle, as far as I can tell, is about 40 degrees off from the plane that goes up the middle of my body. I don't know how far it goes in that direction, but I think it must be a good distance -- at least long enough for a tampon.
Actually, I discovered this fact of my anatomy when I was figuring out tampons. For a long time, I couldn't get them far enough in to be comfortable. I would hit opposition with an inch or more of applicator still sticking out. One day I was sliding the point of the tampon around, trying to get a better angle, when -- swoosh -- up it went, with very little resistance. I just had to point it to the left (my left, going up toward my head). At a certain point, after I've set the tampon at its new angle and before I've pushed it in, the part of the applicator that is outside is pointing not straight down, but somewhere past my right foot. Before the tampon has taken the turn, I can feel it in there; after I push it up, I can't, so that part of it is working well.
I have always read on tampon instruction packets that the angle will be toward the small of your back, or at least somewhere in the vertical plane. Health class didn't mention scenic routes to the uterus. Google doesn't reveal anything substantive. However, I'm not planning to see a gynocologist, since I'm not terribly worried. All of the machinery that I need at this point in my life is working just fine.
My question is whether any (all?) of you are built this way and, if so, are there any complications with sex or childbirth? Experimentation with the former isn't an option, since I'm planning to wait until I get married. Honestly, I can't imagine how sex would work unless the guy had a kink in just the right place. And how common is that?
I'm in the 18-25 age demographic, if that helps at all.
