Female Anatomy 101:
7 Eye-Opening Facts About The Clitoris That Will Make Your Jaw Drop
Pushing the “pink button” near a woman’s vagina will unlock the secrets to her deepest sexual pleasures. The clitoris is the most sensitive part of a woman’s body that can send vibrations up and down her spine when stimulated. Although the “magic button” can transport a woman and her partner to cloud nine, many men and women alike are unfamiliar with it. To boost your female genitalia IQ, Women’s Health has compiled a list of seven eye-opening facts about the clitoris that will make your head spin right round, right round.
1. It’s A Sensitivity Center
The clitoris has approximately 8,000 nerving endings, which is more than anywhere else in the female body. The penis only has 4,000.
2. It’s Similar To A Penis
The clitoris is not shaped like a penis, but it is similar to the male anatomy because it has a glans, a foreskin, also known as the clitoral hood, and even a shaft. Moreover, it swells up when it’s aroused.
3. It Has One Job
The “lady button” has one job, and one job only, and that’s pleasure. It is the only part of the female body whose main function is to serve as pleasure.
4. Size Does Matter
Similar to the never-ending penis debate of whether size matters, the size, or distance of a woman’s clitoris from her vagina may affect her ability to orgasm. A recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found out of 30 women, 10 of them said they had a difficult time orgasming. These 10 women tended to have clitorises that were father from their vaginal opening.
5. It’s Way Bigger Than You Think
The clitoris is more than just a button. Underneath the shape seen in a female diagraph, the clitoris has a shape of a wishbone, with two legs that extend 3 inches into the vagina, which connects to the G-spot. This pleasure zone has a lot of reach and power during pleasure.
6. It Has A Limit
Sorry ladies, but the clitoris can reach its maximum pleasure potential once it’s stimulated. If it continues to be stimulated, pleasure can soon turn into pain and discomfort. The clitoris can become very sensitive, so it’s best to ease the stimulation, and focus on the surrounding areas.
7. Positioning Is Everything
The perfect positioning for clitoral stimulation may be the coital alignment technique. If a man is on top, he can scoot up to about 2 inches so the base of the penis is directly aligned with the woman’s clitoris, according to Women’s Health. This should be followed by a rocking motion while the woman wraps her legs tightly around the man’s thighs.
