Ignored for several centuries, the clitoris gradually begins to reveal itself. What is his role ? Why is it called the “pleasure organ”? How to stimulate it? Everything everything everything, you will know everything about the clitoris!

What is the clitoris?

The clitoris is a small erectile organ of the female genital system. It is mentioned in medical textbooks from the 16th century and is associated with female pleasure for the first time in 1559 by the surgeon Realdo Colombo. Even if its discovery is not new, it took until 2016 and the work of Odile Buisson for a clitoris to be printed in 3D for the first time in France.

What does the clitoris look like?

When you say clitoris, you probably think of the small protuberance located in the upper part of the vulva. You are not wrong, but you are not totally right! In reality, the only parts that we see are the glans of the clitoris (sometimes called a “button”) and its hood which covers it to protect it. This external part measures on average between 0.5 and 1 cm and represents only 1/10 of the organ. The internal part, that is to say the body of the clitoris as well as the two corpora cavernosa, is located under the labia minora.

On average, the clitoris measures between 10 and 12 cm, which is more or less the equivalent of the size of a penis!

What is the clitoris for?

The clitoris is the only organ in the human body dedicated solely to female pleasure. Like what, nature is rather well done! We may have to endure period pain and cystitis , but at least we have the coolest organ in the human body. So take advantage of it!

The organ of pleasure would also have a reproductive function. Its stimulation makes it possible in particular to lubricate the vagina, to increase the vaginal temperature or to slightly change the position of the cervix, which facilitates penetration and fertilization.

Why does the clitoris provide pleasure?

If the clitoris is so sensitive, it is because it is made up of more than 8000 nerve endings. When he is stimulated and aroused, the tissues of the clitoris become engorged with blood and his glans becomes erect. You will understand, the clitoris works like a penis! Unlike that in men, on average, the glans has only between 3000 and 6000 nerve endings.

How to stimulate it?

Caresses with fingers, tongue or rubbing, there are 1001 ways to stimulate a clitoris. The important thing is to find the one that suits us! Some women will be very sensitive and will not tolerate direct stimulation on the glans, while others will love it. To discover what you love, you have to take the time to explore your body.

Clitoral orgasm vs vaginal orgasm, what's the difference?

For a long time, it was believed that there were clitoral women and other vaginal ones. But this is totally wrong! In reality, all women are clitoral. Vaginal orgasms are caused by the stimulation of the clitoris thanks to the internal friction associated with penetration.

Can you have an infection in the clitoris?

Unfortunately, the clitoris is not immune to infection. Fungal infections or even vaginal herpes can reach this small organ.

The clitoris can also be irritated by soap, perspiration, or tight clothing or underwear such as pants and thongs. Synthetic materials can also be the cause of irritation in this part of the body. This is why it is recommended to wear as much as possible soft underwear made without toxic products. During your period, choose menstrual panties !

Microfissures can also be observed on the clitoris, in particular due to an accidental cut with a razor or a fingernail.

If you have pain or an infection in the clitoris, see a doctor quickly! And above all, take good care of this little organ that only wants you good!
