Happy Valentine’s Day! Inspired by V-day this whole month I’ve been focusing on all things vagina – the vulva, squirting, and today I’ll be sharing a few things about the clitoris.
- Did you know the clitoris is the only organ in the human body created for the purpose of experiencing pleasure? Yup, that’s all it does.
- The clitoris is actually fairly large. The part that is visible is called the glans and that is only the very tip.
- The clitoris itself does not actually produce or secrete any type of fluid.
The Clitoris | For Pleasure Only
In many ways the clitoris can be compared to the penis but the one way it differs – the penis is a multi-tasker while the clitoris has only one purpose- to feel pleasure. Many people are disconnected from their bodies in general and their genitals in particular. Through relaxation and mindful masturbation we can get in touch with our genitals. As a woman, you can tap into an immense amount of pleasure. This is because of the clitoris and the way it works inside our bodies.
The Clitoris Is Bigger Than You Might Realize
Attached by ligaments at the pubic symphysis (where the two hip bones meet in the middle), the mons peeks out from beneath the protective hood. beneath the hood is the body. Once inside it separates into 2 sections. Called the crus, these legs extend the length of the labia and encircle the vaginal canal creating the corpus cavernosum. Then, the clitoris has another extension on each side called the crura. This leg extends down through the perineum and even alongside the anus attaching to the pudendal nerve.
Here are pictures showing what I’m talking about:
The Clitoris Does Not Produce Fluid
The vagina secrets many types of fluid, and urine comes from the urethra, but many mistakenly assume that the clitoris produces some type of fluid as well. The entire vaginal area is made up of erectile tissue (much like a penis) and it has an area of spongy tissue called vestibular bulbs or skene’s glands. These become engorged during arousal – like the penis – and this is where the ejaculate comes from. These glands run along side the clitoris below the surface of the labia. During high arousal and with the right kind of pressure they can release fluid that is very similar to the prostatic fluid created in the male prostate. The ducts for these glands exit into the opening of the urethra – the opening of which is below the clitoris and just inside the introitus (opening) of the vagina.
Clitoris and bulbs/skene’s glands
Why would you want to know all this? The more aware you are (whether you are the one with the pussy or the one loving on the pussy) the better you will be able to stimulate that pussy. Just knowing all this is going on under the surface will influence how you treat the area and key you in more deeply to the experience which makes for more pleasure. And that’s what great sex is all about, right?!
