The clitoris, also known as the clit for short, is the female’s most sensitive erogenous zone… with no known purpose other than pleasure and orgasms.
The clitoris has three parts – the head, shaft, and legs.
The tiny pink organ above the vaginal opening that is often mistaken as the entire clitoris is just the head of the clitoris, a.k.a. the clitoral head.
In fact, the clit or clitoris reaches deep into a girl’s (or woman’s) genitals.
The head of the clitoris, also known as the glans, is the visible part of the larger clitoral network.
The clitoral shaft and the clitoral legs are hidden inside the vaginal area… and they all play a role in female sexual pleasure.
The Visible Clitoris: The head
As mentioned above, the visible part of the clitoris is just the head of the clitoris. [Read: ‘How to Find the Clitoris (the Clitoral Head)’]
The clitoral head has about 8000 nerve endings. Roughly the same amount of nerve endings in the head of the penis. More nerves than any other part of the human body.
But because the clitoral head is so small, the nerves are more concentrated in a much smaller space. And this explains why the clitoral head is so much more sensitive than the penis.
The head alone is so sensitive to stimulation that a hood (a clitoral hood) protects it during peak stimulation.
The clitoris and the penis are developed from the same embryonic tissue. It gets erect just like the penis. But unlike the penis, it is not used for reproduction, the ejaculation of fluid, or the removal of waste.
The clit in its own unique nature is devoted solely to pleasure and orgasms.
The clitoral head is so sensitive to stimulation that a hood protects it during peak stimulation.
The Internal Clitoris: The Shaft and Legs of the Clit
We’ve established that the majority of the clitoris is internal.
The clitoral head is connected to the shaft of the clitoris, which runs just beneath the skin of the front commissure. The shaft contains erectile tissue just like the penis and can easily be felt when the girl (or woman) is sexually aroused.
The shaft further extends north towards the mons pubis… then forks and divides like a wishbone into two legs that flare downward along the path of the inner lips… then connect with other muscles that encircle the anus.
In short, the clitoris closely encircles the entire area of the vulva, from the pubic bone, extending throughout the pelvic area down to the anus.
An Interesting Fact about the Clitoris
Research indicates that the front wall of the vagina is linked with internal parts of the clit. And that the female G-spot may simply be nothing more than the roots of the clit.
When a woman is sexually aroused, the erectile tissue of the clitoris engorges and pulls closer to the front vaginal wall.
Persistent stroking of the front vaginal wall with a finger or a G-spot sex toy or the continual hitting of this area by the penis during sexual intercourse triggers the G-spot orgasm.
So to put it differently, a G-spot orgasm (or vaginal orgasms) is the result of the internal stimulation of the clit.
The Clitoral Role in Sexual Pleasure and Orgasms
When a girl (or a woman) is turned on and sexually aroused, the clitoris engorges with blood… it increases in size and gets thicker. And it’s when she is in this state that she is primed to have orgasms.
When a girl or woman experiences a clitoral orgasm before having penetrative sex, she has a greater chance of having a vaginal orgasm during sexual intercourse.
Plus, when she receives direct clitoral stimulation during sex, she is more likely to climax consistently.
As mentioned earlier, the head of the clitoris is so sensitive to stimulation that a hood (the clitoral hood) protects it during peak stimulation.
Direct stimulation of the clit (or more precisely the clitoral head) at the early stage or when a woman is not turned on will be painful and uncomfortable for her.
So when stimulating the clitoral head, it’s best to start off caressing the protective hood and the surrounding area first.
It’s when she is amply aroused or approaching orgasm that the clitoral head can be directly touched…
…and avoid touching it after she experiences an orgasm.
The clitoral head is very sensitive after orgasm… therefore, further stimulation will be painful for some women.
…if you want to give your girl or woman the best sexual experience and mind-blowing orgasms, lavish her clit with attention before you start having sexual intercourse.
And when having sex, add clitoral stimulation to the mix.
You can use your fingers, a sex toy, or rub your pubic bone against the clit when in the missionary position, and you will bring her to orgasm faster.
If you want to give your woman the best sexual experience and mind-blowing orgasms, lavish her clit with attention before you start having actual sex.
Don’t mistake the clitoris for the small pink organ you see above the vaginal opening…
…it’s more than that.
It’s a powerful organ and a powerhouse of pleasure.
It reaches deep into the genitals and services a woman’s entire pelvic area.
And with about 8000 nerve endings – more nerve endings than any other part of the human body – the clitoris literally throbs with potential pleasure and triggers powerful orgasms.
