Only a few decades ago, the prevailing wisdom was that if a woman couldn’t have an orgasm from vaginal penetration alone, there was something wrong with her. Thankfully, we now know much more about women’s sexual anatomy—which means we understand that for the majority of women, the real action is in the clitoris! Actually at least 7/10 women need clitoral stimulation.
Let’s learn a little about this anatomical hot spot, shall we?!
What it is (+ where to find it!)
When most people think of the clitoris, they think of a small bulb of fleshy tissue that sits at the top of the labia (or vaginal lips). In reality, this bulb, called the glans clitoris, is just the tip of a complex internal structure that surrounds the vagina with sensitive erectile tissue. In fact, many scientists now believe that what we know as the G-spot is actually part of the internal clitoral structure.
It’s easy to find the clitoris—even though you might not always be able to see it, because it retracts under a flap or “hood” of skin as part of arousal. Just trace your finger along the tip of the labia, and when you get to the top, explore. You’ll know when you’ve found it!!
Why it’s important…
The clitoris is densely packed with 8,000-12,000 nerve endings, the same amount as men have spread out over the entire surface area of the penis and testicles! That concentration of nerve endings makes the clitoris a powerful pleasure center for women. It’s the only organ in either men or women whose sole known function is pleasure! Now that’s something to be excited about!
A few fun facts about it….
- While many people think of the vagina as the female equivalent of the penis, the real counterpart is the clitoris! Both the penis and the clitoris develop from a structure in an embryo called the genital tubercle.
- Sigmund Freud believed that an adult woman should be able to achieve orgasm through vaginal penetration alone, and that reliance on the clitoris for sexual pleasure was a sign of immaturity. The first scientist to dispute this theory? The famous sex researcher Dr. Alfred Kinsey.
- The clitoris actually grows in size; at age 32, yours is almost four times the size it was at puberty!
How to enjoy it…
The Pure Romance product lineup offers many ways for you to enjoy clitoral pleasure with a partner or by yourself! The easiest is a bullet vibrator or other small vibrator, which allows you to provide direct, focused vibration to this sensitive area. Make the experience even more toe-curling by adding an enhancement cream, which delivers an exciting tingle to the clitoris, using Pure Romance’s special ingredient, the Triplex Tingle.
Other amazing toys you’ll thank me for mentioning include my personal fav’s, the dual action vibrators Blind Date & Main Attraction, pictured above, is a new addition and part of the Seductive Spotlight Collection.
However you choose to explore your clitoris, enjoy yourself! After all, that’s why it exists!
