Do you know about your clitoris?
Sex Matters for Women: A Complete Guide to Taking Care of Your Sexual Self, on page 75, author Sallie Folley describes the Clitoris this way:
The clitoris has only one purpose and function: pleasure and sexual excitement. It is covered and protected by the labia minora. The clitoris is a small, rounded organ composed of erectile tissue. Similar to a man's penis, this spongy erectile tissue can become engorged with blood and increase in size during sexual arousal. The glans, or visible part of the clitoris, has thickly clustered nerve endings, even more than the head of a penis, making it an organ often described as "exquisitely sensitive." The root of the clitoris runs below the surface and is also extremely sensitive. The shaft of the clitoris separates into two parts, wishbone fashion, where the shaft is anchored to the pelvic bone. The clitoris, including the parts that can't be seen, becomes engorged with blood during sexual stimulation and is important in sexual arousal and orgasm. The clitoris is protected by a clitoral hood, or prepuce (Latin: foreskin), which is part of the labia minora. This hood of protective tissue can be manipulated to expose more of the clitoris.
And in the The Hite Report, which I blogged about here we learn that "When fully engaged, the clitoral system as a whole overshadows the clitoral glans and shaft in the ratio of almost thirty to one. The total blood-vessel engorgement of the clitoral system during sexual excitation may actually exceed the more obvious engorgement of the male."
How can you use this information?
Knowing the size of the clitoris can help you to use it to your advantage. It's not merely a little love button.
Did you know that there are two main ways to achieve orgasm and they both utilize the clitoris? A clitoral orgasm is achieved without penetration and a vaginal orgasm is achieved with penetration. In both cases, orgasm is achieved through clitoral stimulation. While both types of orgasm result in a throbbing sensation, women report slightly different sensations. Here are some quotes from The Hite Report to help you understand:
pg 188“Intercourse orgasms are stronger and better and satisfy my whole body rather than just the genital area, the way direct stimulation does.”“Clitoral orgasms involve less of the body and seem rather shallow and empty, less satisfying.”pg 189“Clitoral is very intense but less deep and full; there is no qualitative difference, only a difference in richness, fullness and emotional satisfaction.”“Vaginal orgasms are deeper, more releasing, more satisfying, better both psychologically and physically. They are like an underground volcano. A manual orgasm is sharper and more piercing, more superficial.”
Have you experienced both types of orgasm? Do you need help? Sex toys are a great resource for learning.
