When it comes to sexual pleasure and fulfillment, the clitoris is undoubtedly a major deal. In fact, it’s actually the only organ in the entire human anatomy known to exist solely for the purposes of sexual stimulation. It also has a greater concentration of nerve endings than anywhere else in the male or female body. Essentially, there’s no area of greater importance for the purposes of enjoying sex, and yet it remains a mysterious and often unexplored part of the body for a great number of people.
The Clitoris: What You Should Know About This Mysterious Organ
This clitoris is a complex thing, much more intricate than it’s often thought of being. Though it’s only 3 or 4 centimeters, or possibly up to 7 centimeters when erect, there are thousands of cell structures working to make it what it is. Only a small portion of it is actually visible from the outside, while the majority of its parts are actually internal.
- Clitoral Hood
- Glans Clitoris
On the very outside is a flap of skin known as the clitoral hood, which covers and mostly surrounds the glands. Though technically considered a part of the labia, it’s still associated with clitoral anatomy and also pretty important as the part that most people initially see. The glands below it, known as the glans clitoris, are packed with a dense cluster of nerve endings.
The internal parts of the clitoris are where you’ll find most of its erectile structures, meaning the parts that become engorged with blood when you’re aroused. At the very center is the body, which splits into two branch-like structures on either side called the crura. Behind the body, just between the vaginal wall and the labia, are the bulbs. At the very base is the root, which is where all the nerves of the clitoris come together, making it an incredibly sensitive place.
Clitoris Research & The G Spot
As you may know, the issue of the female orgasm remains mysterious, to say the least. According to biologists like Elizabeth Lloyd, no one really knows what really causes them or why it’s easier for some to experience than others. What we’re left with is the experiences of women themselves, along with a little survey data from the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy to gain perspective. It’s no surprise that a majority of cis-gendered women, about 36%, said that clitoral stimulation is necessary for them to experience orgasm. Another 36% reported they could orgasm with vaginal penetration alone, but the experience was less pleasurable. Only 18% of women reported that they could orgasm from penetration exclusively.
More enigmatic than even the female orgasm is the infamous G-spot. Though it’s generally accepted to exist, there is still no firm consensus as to its actual location. The most common assumption is that it’s located on the anterior wall about 5-8 centimeters into the vagina, somewhere in the tissue surrounding the urethra. Also controversial is how pleasurable the G-spot actually is. According to polls, the issue is about half and half. Some love G-spot stimulation, while others find it simply uncomfortable.
Can You Squirt From Clitoral Stimulation?
According to the latest statistics, about 10% of people with vaginas can squirt from having contact with their clitoris alone. It’s actually much more likely to happen when applying pressure to the G-spot, but not impossible otherwise. The best and only way to find out is to experience it for yourself.
How To Stimulate The Clitoris For Maximum Pleasure
It’s an incredibly important fact that not everyone likes their clitoris to be touched the same way. What feels amazing to some may be irritating or uncomfortable to others. If one thing isn’t working out for you. you should probably try a different motion or technique. There are several ways you can go about it, so don’t be afraid to experiment a little to find what works best.
Above all, the thing most vagina havers prefer is Rhythm. 75% say they prefer a constant and repetitive motion like the beat of a song with light to medium pressure applied. Some may prefer being touched directly on their clitoris, but for others, this might be overstimulating and unpleasant. In fact, a significant amount enjoys being stimulated on the skin around the clitoris or an occasional touch to it without any pressure. It’s even possible to prefer no contact with the clitoris whatsoever.
Paths Of Motion
In addition to pressure and the area it’s applied, the path you take to apply the pressure can make all the difference. Tracing different patterns on and around the clitoris is a great place to start discovering what feels right.
