Understanding the Secrets of Your Clit

There is more than meets the eye!

It's just a little button that LOVES attention, right? Nope! Recent discoveries have shown us that the clitoris goes far deeper than the bit that you see. The full clitoral system (which science calls the "clitoral complex") is a much more complex system than we ever imagined! The magic button seemed quite straight forward, until scientists Pierre Foldes and Odile Buisson did a 3D Ultrasound to study the aroused clitoris.

Their research proved that there is much more to the clitoris than meets the eye. It turns out that the visible clitoris is only the "head" of everything we love! They also found that the rest of the clitoral system remains mostly inactive until stimulated. When aroused, the head becomes erect. Then, two clitoral arms, called the corpus cavernosa, swell up from the clitoral head, reaching down and all the way around either side of the vagina. (These arms are responsible for much of the pleasure experienced in normal vaginal sex.)

In addition, the 3D ultrasound showed that the clitoris extends inside of the pubic bone toward the G-spot, wrapping its arms around the vaginal entrance in the shape of a wishbone. Strangely enough, the vaginal walls themselves are not extremely sensitive to touch. This is why the majority of women don't climax purely from lovemaking. In fact, research shows that only 25% of women experience regular orgasm purely through intercourse.

Author, Elisabeth Lloyd, details in her book "The Case of the Female Orgasm", that about 70% of women don't achieve the blissful state of climax without some type of clitoral stimulation. She discovered that the lack of orgasm does not depend on the duration of lovemaking, penis size or rhythm.

What did it depend on then? Easy-peasy: it's all about the clitoris, both inside and out! This erotic button's sole purpose is to provide sexual pleasure. With an incredible 8,000 nerve endings, the clitoris is the most sensitive erogenous zone on the female body. That is why the clitoris is the key. Once awakened, you'll unlock the pleasures of the entire "clitoral complex", leading to stronger and more frequent orgasms, even during lovemaking.

Clitoral Stimulation Techniques

Luckily, stimulating the clitoris is relatively easy. Once the clitoral system is turned on, some sex positions offer great clitoral contact to maintain the magic. Or, include a specially designed toy. There are many toys dedicated to clitoral stimulation, which means that delicious solo exploration is also possible.

They make orgasm easy to reach and can deliver a host of new sensations to experiment with, such as vibrating, pulsating, throbbing, escalating, etc. A note for those who don't possess a clitoris - it's important to remember just how sensitive this little button is, especially when using a toy. Please start slowly! Once the clitoris has adjusted to the vibrations, you can begin to increase pressure and REALLY start your playtime!
