The Clitoris

The Clitoris

The 52% orgasm gap is a symptom of generations of men remaining ignorant towards the ultimate pleasure center: The Clitoris. Read on to become woke!

The 'Clitoris' is a part of the vagina located above the urethra (the hole through which women pee) and can be considered the pleasure center of a woman's body. This is due to the abundance of around 8000 nerve endings concentrated in the tiny tip ie, the clitoris.

"The clitoris is pure in purpose. It is the only organ in the body designed purely for pleasure." 

Eve Ensler

You may have heard otherwise, but more or less all vaginal stimulation experienced by women is essentially clitoral. Even the mysterious G-spot is part of the clitoral network. This is likely because the clitoris is the place closest to the vagina that plays no part in childbirth. While men can afford to be pleasured by the same organ that they use for conception, the same cannot happen for women.

Finding the clitoris

Generally, once you've hit puberty, this piece of flesh (which can be a little discolored) begins to hang like a hat or hood covering the urethra (your pee-hole).

The inner side of the hood is where the most nerve endings lie

The clitoris swells up, much like a penis, when the woman is aroused! It's not difficult to spot in this condition!

If you just want to pleasure your partner though, and still can't find it, gently test the entirety of the vulva with your tongue. The spot that makes her quiver - that's the clitoris!

The G-spot can be found on the inner walls of the vagina, 3-5 cm behind the vaginal opening.

Stimulating the clitoris

The tongue is the best organ to stimulate the clitoris with. The clit's hyper-sensitive nature can make inexperienced women queasy, especially if you use your fingers. The key is to be gentle when you lick it.

If you really want to use your fingers though, be extra gentle, and shift focus to the vaginal opening, so you can stimulate the clitoris from the inside (G-spot stimulation).

When inside, turn your hand so that the inner side faces upwards, and use the 'Come Here' motion to stimulate the g-spot.

When fingering her, make sure you don't insert too many fingers too quickly. Start with one, and make sure every time you put in a new finger, that the vagina is lubricated enough (naturally or unnaturally) to let it slip right in.

Another important thing to remember is that fingers are not like the penis. They can produce stimulation through movement in the vagina, but fast and hard in-and-out strokes are not as desirable with these organs.

The best way to please a woman is with the tongue on the outer part of her clitoris, and the fingers on the inner walls at the G-spot. Licking and gentle sucking on one end, and the 'come here' motion on the other works almost all the time.

To cause her to squirt, however, you would be better advised to use your mouth to suck rather than lick the clitoris.

If none of this works though, don't be shy to just ask, and let her guide you around her body.

"Two generations of Americans knew more about the Ford coil than the clitoris, about the planetary system of gears than the solar system of stars." 

John Steinbeck

What is a ticklish clit?

Some women are more sensitive in the clitoral area than other women, this is when one has a ticklish clit.

In seeking pleasure every woman is different, making sensitiveness in the clitoris heavenly for one but unbearable for another.

If your partner suffers from having a ticklish clit, it is better to build-up a conversation regarding it. You could ask your partner to guide you with her hands when stimulating the clitoris. Experiment and see where your partner finds comfort.

You could ask your partner to masturbate herself and then by observing where all her hands go you could master her technique and make the hands and tongue go places she finds comfort in visiting.

Usually, when someone has a ticklish clit it is advised to not pleasure on the clit but around the clit, while making gentle contact on the clitoral area.

Using this information during penetrative sex

clitoris
  • Using your fingers to stimulate the hood of the clitoris while having sex can be very pleasurable.
  • Positions that hit the G-spot best are a closed missionary, downward doggy, and cowgirl or woman on top, where you grind instead of bouncing.

What's more? Clitoral stimulation is responsible for orgasms in women, and orgasms release oxytocin. This hormone plays an important role in bonding and love, meaning, the more orgasms you give your girl, the more she'll love you! But more importantly, if you're a single woman, masturbation that is correctly directed at giving you orgasms can better your self-esteem, release stress, and drive your independent lifestyle, so give it a shot!
