Female Ejaculation Part 4: Your Clitoris

October 4, 2009

Clitoral quick facts taken from the pages of Female Ejaculation: Unleash The Ultimate G-Spot Orgasm:

  • Located at the upper end of the vulva just below the meeting of the inner lips. Clitoris_anatomy_labeled-en
  • It’s only purpose is pleasure. 
  • Made of spongy tissue that is rich in blood vessels and nerve endings that swell up when aroused. 
  • The tip of the clitoris is called the glans.
  • The intersection of the inner lips creates a hood that covers the glans and protects the clitoris.
  • It’s the most sensitive erogenous zone and contains as many as 8,000 nerve endings. 
  • The clitoral shaft extends under the skin up towards the pubic bone and belly before turning down towards the vagina. When aroused the shaft becomes rigid and sinks deeper inside the body. 
  • The crura are the two legs of the clitoris, which continue deeper for about three inches towards the G-spot, one on either side of the vagina. 
  • Only about 10% of women have a clitoris that’s close enough to the vaginal opening to be easily orgasmic from typical penis penetration. 

The tip of the clitoris is fed by the pudendal nerve, as are the vagina’s lips and opening, the perineum (the tissue between the vagina and the anus), and the anus itself. (By the way, “pudenda” is a fancy out-of-date term for external human genitals.)

The shaft and the legs of the clitoris (as well as the inner vagina and the G-spot) are fed by the pelvic nerve deeper inside. This possibly explains why orgasms feel different when triggered by the inner and outer erogenous zones.
