Celebrating the Clitoris

“Most guys know more about what’s under the hood of a car than under the hood of a clitoris.” ~ Dr. Ian Kerner, author of She Comes First

It’s that favorite time of year – National “Tickle Your Fancy” Month! Time to celebrate one of the best things about being a WOMAN: the Clitoris.

Just The Facts Ma’am!

This extraordinary organ of pleasure boasts more nerve endings than any other organ in the human body: 8,000 compared to 5,000 for a penis. Only in the last 5 years has the clitoris been fully mapped, and amazingly, this organ rivals a man’s penis in size. Who knew? During echo graphic studies, the clitoris has been found to reach up to eight inches in length. What’s more, it’s made of thick and highly pleasurable erectile tissue that’s wrapped around the vulva and the pelvic floor.

The clitoris and penis are made of basically the same stuff, but put together in a different way. The clitoris has a glans, a foreskin (also known as the hood), erectile tissue, and a teeny-tiny shaft. It even swells when it’s aroused! Good thing for girls it’s mostly hidden – who’d want to spend all that time measuring and comparing with girlfriends the way those boys do?

By the end of puberty, the clitoris is about 1.8 times larger than before the onset of puberty. By the time a woman is 32 years old, the clitoris is nearly four times as big as before the onset of puberty. And it keeps growing as we age. After menopause, the clitoris is about seven times larger than at birth. But don’t freak out – it still comprises a very small volume. So the change in size won’t be very noticeable. And hey, the increase in size may help explain why older gals often report enjoying such hot sex!

Related fact: the clitoris is the only part of the body designed solely for pleasure. Other body parts used for sexual pleasure appear to have at least one other purpose, but your clitoris’ only purpose is to take you to the moon.  Woo Hoo!

Pleasure Time!

Every woman is unique when it comes to how and when they like their clitoris stimulated. Some like to jump right into clitoral stimulation, while others need more time. The clitoris is a highly sensitive area, so applying just the right pressure and timing is highly personal and vital to achieving maximum intensity.

If you’re not already a fan of this wonderful and healthful activity, then it’s time to get in the swing of things.  Take the time to experience and learn about the pleasure of this magic button. All you need is a little lubricant, and maybe a toy (or two). Let the climax of your day… become the climax of your day.

Nearly 95% of women achieve orgasm when they masturbate, but only 30% reach orgasm from penetration alone. So playing with your magic button will ensure a delicious peak during playtime. And performing this sexy activity in front of your partner can be a huge turn on… for the both of you.

Guys, taking her over the edge is what it’s all about, right? Well, her magic button is the button to push, or stroke, or… I think you know where I’m going with this. If you’re serious about sending her over the edge, become a dedicated connoisseur of clitoral simulative technique. She will love you more for it!

Gals, taking the time to enjoy this tiny but divine anatomical feature delivers more than shivering pleasure. Loving that magic button often and well – energizes our bodies, boosts our self-esteem, increases our creativity, and improves our well-being. It’s truly a celebration of life.

Viva la clitoris!
