Species backstory:
The Night Mares are the female equivalent of Princess Luna's forces. With a body shape similar to the Traditional Unicorn, Night Mares were created when Luna stopped Death from taking the lives of ponies who enjoyed her night. In return for her act, the Night Mares swore to use their powers to deliver dreams and nightmares to sleeping ponies. Soon after the Night Mares were created, Luna's madness turned her into Nightmare Moon, and she was banished.
Princess Selena, an Alicorn Night Mare, took over the Night Mares. The tribe has fallen into disrepair, and Luna is unaware they still exist. Princess Selena has also held back from telling the Night Mares their true ruler has returned.
Luna's male forces include the earthwalking Phantoms, the magical Moonicorns and the winged Thestrals.

I could go into the whole female =/= vagina thing, but there are other explanations.
1) They are semi-immortal, and as such do not die and do not need to repopulate. However, any spirit can be converted into a Night Mare when they die. 
2) They could also reproduce with the male forces; Phantoms, Moonicorns and Thestrals, but the offspring may not have the same lifespan or powers as a pure Night Mare.
