What is Clitoris?
Before we start anything let us know what is a clitoris?
For people who have a vagina, most orgasms usually occur through clitoral stimulation, which is located above the urethra and vaginal opening
The clitoris is the main source of female sexual pleasure, Areas that experience pleasure: erogenous zones
The erogenous zones are areas of the body whose stimulation causes a sexual response. These can include the genital area, nipples or anywhere, actually, depending on what you like.
The most sensitive erogenous zone of the female body is the clitoris. Stimulation of an erogenous zone (during masturbation or intercourse) can trigger a physiological response of a sexual nature.
The clitoris is part of the vulva, a name given to the external parts of the female genitals. The vagina is the tube that connects the vulva with the cervix.
This is a diagram of the vulva:
The clitoris can be stimulated directly, internally (through the vagina) and/or through vulvar stimulation.
Many people with vagina do not always reach orgasm through intercourse, despite enjoying or feeling arousal with penetrating sex.
Where is the clitoris? Let’s take a look at the anatomy?
The clitoris is not just the part of the anatomy that feels like a small button.
The clitoris is made up of many parts:
- the glans
- the body of the clitoris
- paired or crura bodies and vestibular bulbs
External parts of the clitoris
The glans of the clitoris is the part that most people call “clitoris.”
It is the outer part of the clitoris, is about the size of a pea and is above the urethra. Because the glans is an area of the clitoris with greater innervation, it is extremely sensitive to touch.
The function of the glans is to perceive sensation and stimulation. Contrary to the rest of the clitoris, the glans do not swell or grow during the female sexual response, since it has no erectile tissue (expandable).
Just above or above the glans is the foreskin of the clitoris or cap, which is formed by the two sides of the labia that connect. The foreskin can vary in size and degree of coverage among people
Normally, most of the clitoris is not visible in the vulva.
Connected to the glans is the body of the clitoris. The body of the clitoris projects to the pelvis and is fixed to the pelvic bone by means of ligaments.
From the body of the clitoris (located in front of the urethra), the clitoris is divided in half to form the paired or crura bodies (which are like the “pillars” of the clitoris), and the vestibular bulbs. These bulbs extend through and behind the lips, passing through the urethra and vaginal canal into the anus.
Bulbs and crura contain erectile tissue that swells with blood during female sexual arousal. This swelling on both sides of the vaginal canal causes lubrication of the vagina to increase, as does sexual stimulation and sensation. Likewise, this expansion of the clitoris tissue can cause pressure in the anterior part of the vaginal canal.
How the clitoris is stimulated?
All people are different and also have different erogenous zones, desires and stimulants. We can’t put more emphasis on this! There is no “best way” to stimulate the clitoris – you should experiment a little.
That said, here are some tips to help you and your partner reach orgasm.
1. Create an environment. Find a comfortable place
If you are with a partner, creating the environment can include kissing, previous play, and exploring your body and that of your partner.
If you have no company, feel free to explore other erogenous areas of your body (such as your nipples). Do not forget to stimulate your mind: if you feel like it but your imagination is not enough, you can enter the environment with some porn or erotic literature.
2. Familiarize yourself with the area near the clitoris.
Use whatever you want: your fingers, your partner’s or your mouth/tongue, or another object (that is clean), such as a sex toy. You can also use a showerhead, a vibrator or even the friction that your underwear creates when you rub against something else, such as a pillow. Once you have thoroughly explored the area around the clitoris and feel that you have prepared properly, you can move on to stimulate the clitoris.
3. Begin by touching the clitoris gently and gradually.
The clitoris is not a magic button and simply pressing it does not automatically cause an orgasm (in most people). Don’t think you’re a DJ scratching a disc from one side to another — nobody likes that.
4. Take your time.
It is a small area and can be daunting at first. “ Where do I get enough creativity to stimulate such a small area of the skin? ”Pay attention to your body or your partner, and get feedback on what feels good.
You can try soft repetitive caresses, small circular movements or even a slight patter.
It also involves the foreskin of the clitoris — remember that it also has nerve endings and the body of the clitoris curves behind you before inserting into the pelvis. Explore alone or with your partner, if that feels good.
5. You can start experimenting with pressure, speed, other parts of the body (such as the tongue, with a partner), toys or vibration.
When they feel sexually stimulated, most people begin to produce an arousal fluid, which can make stimulation of the clitoris and vagina much more comfortable.
6. Consider adding some personal lubricant to the mixture.
7. You can also try to stimulate the clitoris from the inside with a penis, a toy or your fingers.
people will be able to feel stimulated or even reach orgasm the first time, or every time, that they have sex or masturbate — and that’s fine.
The only really important thing is that you enjoy it. If you don’t enjoy it, don’t do it.
Research on the clitoris and the G-spot
The clitoris (both its anatomy and its function) is a controversial issue. The taboos surrounding the discussion about women’s sexuality and pleasure have contributed to the lack of research in these areas. But as the taboos break, hopefully, more research will give greater clarity to the understanding of the clitoris.
The existence or function of the G-spot is not entirely clear. Some research suggests that it may be related to female ejaculation (also known as ” squirting “)
Other research suggests that the G-spot is not necessarily a physical structure as such, but the place where the sides of the vestibular bulbs of the clitoris come into contact with the anterior wall of the vagina.
This suggests that a “vaginal orgasm” may, in fact, be connected to the clitoris. That is, every movement during penetrating vaginal intercourse or each contraction of the pelvic muscles can stimulate the clitoris.
Both the external part of the clitoris, as well as the glans of the clitoris and the foreskin of the clitoris can vary in size from person to person.
Exposure to androgens during any stage of life, including intrauterine development, childhood and adulthood, can cause the clitoris to increase in size. Clitoromegaly is called the condition of a clitoris that is large enough to be considered abnormal.
The Clitoris and the Penis: a shared origin
The penis and clitoris are structurally related. In fact, both have their origin in the same germ tissue.
At eight weeks of fetal development, the Y chromosome of the male DNA activates the differentiation of the genital tissue to form a penis instead of a clitoris. Many parts of the clitoris are similar to those of the penis but vary in size and shape, and are located in different places.
There is. Every woman has it and its only purpose is a sexual pleasure. It’s called clitoris and the poor guy has been misunderstood for a long time. However, more and more scholars who dare to speak about this member of the female anatomy and its secrets have been revealed for the benefit of all and all.
- Always alive: Your ability to give pleasure and intense orgasms to a woman is the same, regardless of age, so it is understood that does not age.
- It is a penis. How? Yes, sir. From the histological point of view, the clitoris corresponds to the male penis, explains the health portal Onmeda.es
The clitoris has many nerve endings, as does the male sex organ. The erect tissue of this extends to the interior of the vagina, so it is the same size and weight as a penis. But yes, the orgasm of the clitoris lasts longer than that of its male counterpart.
- It has a cap. Similar to the male prepuce, the cap serves to protect it from excessive friction.
- It is “the key”. It is speculated that the languages derived the word ‘clitoris’ from the word ‘key’ of Ancient Greece.
Also, it is believed that it comes from the verb ‘kleitoriazein’, which means ‘seek pleasure’. The word ‘clitoris’, as such, is known in all European languages. As a curious fact, in the 70s the word clitoris was considered offensive in the American media.
- You can exercise. According to some experts, 20 minutes of moderate exercise increases a woman’s genital inflammation to 168% and the effect persists for hours.
- The most sensitive. It has more than 8,000 nerve endings, so it is considered the most sensitive part of the female body.
These terminations communicate with a network of 15,000 more terminations in the entire pelvic region. This means that all orgasms occur thanks to the clitoris.
