Everything you need to know
about the Clitoris
The clitoris is hugely important to female sexual pleasure. It is a woman's most sensitive erogenous zone and really is the primary source of female pleasure. For something so small, the clit is a hugely complex structure and its size and sensitivity varies from woman to woman. According to research, it is estimated that the clit has over 8000 sensory nerve endings
What to consider
BEFORE YOU BUY!
Masturbation isn't just about reaching orgasm, ok who am I kidding? It is fun and provides many benefits. But in all honesty, masturbation has been proven to reduce stress, improve sleep, and even increase self-esteem, and the most important thing, it feels amazing! Women are all unique, so why would clitorises be any different? Every woman needs a different kind of stimulation to feel satisfied, depending on her unique biology. We shouldn't need a reason for self-pleasure sessions. Here are some factors everyone should keep in mind…
Shape and Size
Clitoral vibrators have been designed to deliver precise stimulation to the clitoris without any internal stimulation. Any vibrators can be held against the clitoris, our favourite clitoral vibrators have a curved, ergonomic form that fit the female form perfectly. Most clitoral toys are small and discreet. Some are smooth, while some are textured and feature nubs and ridges. All provide varying degrees of vibrations, which, when held against the clitoris, cause intense orgasms.
Are you after a simple, straightforward tool, or would you rather have a lot of different pulse settings to mix it up? If this is your first toy, a simpler product with fewer settings should suit you just fine. More experienced toy users may want to opt for something with a bit more va va voom. Figuring out what type of sensation you are after and how many vibration options you want, will help you pick the right product for you.
Do you want a toy that is battery operated or can be recharged at any time? Do not dismiss the battery-operated toys, these ones can also pack a punch. The only downfall is, if the battery does leaks, the toy can get ruined damaging the toy internally. Rechargeable toys can be recharged by plugging the power source into the wall or, these days, the USB port of your laptop or phone charge to recharge. Rechargeable toys can also last longer than battery operated toys in the long run.
Quality of the toy
The quality of the product is important. You want to look for something that is 100% body-safe silicone. Usually, the price range indicates the quality of the toy. High-end toys manufactured by the likes of Je Joue or Lelo are usually pricey but the quality of the toy is impeccable. Don’t get me wrong, all our toys are high-end products.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES

As the saying goes, different strokes for different folks. The same can be said for clitoral stimulation. Gone are the days of single speed vibrators that end up numbing your naughty bits.

FACTS ABOUT THE CLITORIS
YOU MAY HAVE NOT KNOWN
Majority of the Clitoris is internal
While the clitoris is only partially visible to the naked eye, 25% is visible externally, and 75% of the glans reaches inside the female body and continues to the pelvic area. Like buried treasure or a glorious Iceberg. There is nothing wrong with exploring and finding out what you like.
The Clitoris is Shaped like a Wishbone
The 75% we just spoke about branches into two “legs”. Picture a wishbone shape that extends from the clitoris head. These “legs” are called Crura and they can extend out 3 inches or 7.62 cm downwards and around the vaginal walls connecting the G-Spot.
Double the Nerves
The clitoris has an impressive 8,000 nerve endings in its tiny surface area. This is double the amount of nerve endings a male penis has. A male penis has around 4,000 nerve endings - that is including the head and shaft - Sorry Guys.
It's only there for Pleasure
The Clitoris has absolutely zero reproductive functions and its sole purpose is to make the female feel good. In fact, it’s such a one-note organ that it should be left alone after an orgasm. Over stimulations may start feeling uncomfortable or, in some cases, become painful. If so, try to focus on the surrounding areas.
They are not all the same
They can be large, small, more hidden, or less hidden. There are all sorts of shapes and sizes. What one clitoris enjoys, another clitoris may not. Some Clitorises are very sensitive and may require very little stimulation but there may be a clitoris that needs extra time and a specific orientation or action to get going.
The distance between the clitoris and the vagina can determine how easy it is to reach orgasm. Out of 30 women, 10 of them may have difficulty reaching climax. Those 10 women tend to have clitorises that are farther from their vaginal opening.
The Clitoris is the same as a Penis
All babies have the exact same genital tissue when they are conceived. At 12 weeks, the genitalia begins to differentiate into a penis or labia. The clitoris is the same as a penis, just assembled differently. Like the penis, the clitoris has glans, a foreskin (known as the hood), erectile tissue and a very small shaft. It even swells when aroused.
50 - 75% of woman need clitoral Stimulation
Most women who have climaxes or orgasms need to have clitoral stimulation to reach. Most women are unable to have orgasms through vaginal intercourse on its own. Experiment with just externally, then just internally and finally dual stimulation.
Finding the Perfect Position
Different sex positions have a different effect on your clitoris and how it is stimulated. So, say he is on top, you could ask him to move up so the base of his penis is directly aligned with your clitoris. Then move in a rocking motion while your legs are wrapped tightly around his thighs, creating awesome friction just where you need it.

The Difference Between
CLITORAL & VAGINAL STIMULATION.
The Type of Orgasm Experienced
These orgasms are often felt on the surface of the body, like a tingly feeling along your skin and in your brain. Longer-lasting orgasm and more sensitive around the clitoral area afterward.
These orgasms are deeper in the body and can easily be felt by the person penetrating the vagina because the vaginal walls will pulse. The Orgasm is shorter in length but with greater force. After an orgasm some can keep going and maybe achieve a clitoral orgasm afterward.
Can Women Ejaculate?
When the vagina — particularly the G-spot — and the clitoris are stimulated at the same time, it tends to result in a more explosive movie-style orgasm that may have convulsing or literally ejaculation (read: Female Ejaculation Sex Guide Book).
Best way to reach Orgasm?
Once the clitoris begins to get wet, or after you add lubricant because not all vaginas can get wet on their own, apply faster and harder pressure in a repetitive motion. Either a back and forth, or circular motion. Top off this motion with heavy pressure as the orgasm begins to intensify the feeling. Back down a little when the clitoris is too sensitive.
Aim to use fingers or a G-Spot Vibrator for penetration instead of the penis. Using a small amount of lubrication, Mimic the “come hither” or circular motion, rather than an in-and-out movement. Repeat motions that feel good so that the feelings will build up. There’s a point of pleasure on this wall called the G-spot and when you hit it with regular, strong pressure, it can lead to orgasm. Stimulation of the G-spot is also the way to lead to female ejaculation, as it stimulates the Skene’s glands on either side of the urethra.
What can I use to Stimulate
To Stimulate the G-Spot you can use your fingers, different types of G-Spot Vibrators or Realistic Dildos, especially if you want to reach your A-Spot - up near the cervix.
Understanding what you like and how your partner can add to the amazing experience, it does start within yourself. Communications is key to pleasure success. Know that orgasms can be small. They can happen many times in a row, and they don't always happen. Every body has a different orgasm from the next person. But the path it takes to climax all comes down to a few aspects. Experimenting, communication and trying again. Let's face it, who doesn't want to try again. Allow yourself to feel the different sensations of the pleasure process, enjoy the connections with yourself or with your partner. Have fun building the sensation up till your body cannot keep it in anymore. Plus, not all sex requires an orgasm and orgasms don't always mean the sex was great.
