I have participated in Molly’s Pussy Pride project and I have written about my clitoral orgasms before. Now I have came across an article on the Sexis Magazine called ‘The Clitoris: The Tip of an Iceberg‘. The title intrigued me, so I read the article and that triggered me to writing this post. Sexis Magazine is part of EdenFantasys and a source of many interesting articles on various subjects.
The first question in the mentioned article is: What do you think of when you hear the word “clit?” Do you think of the super-sensitive little nub that can make someone scream with pleasure? The pink bump concealed under a soft skin hood?
And yes, indeed, that is the first thing that comes to mind, right? I mean, it’s generally accepted that when you say ‘clit’ that is exactly what you are talking about.
Now men and ladies out there. Have you ever stopped and really looked at a clitoris? Men, have you ever really looked at that little button you were licking and that made the owner of it writhe in pleasure? Ladies, have you ever examined your own clitoris, tried to see more of it? Pulled your clitoral hood back and exposed your clit to really, really look at it? Maybe you’ve used a magnifying mirror to study it? Have you ever wondered about the anatomy of that incredible piece of sexy you? Did you know that the entire area is called the ‘clitoral network’ and that this network is about the same size as a penis? Well? To answer my own question, no, I did not know that! Maybe it’s ignorance on my side or maybe it’s just because I do not need the knowledge to be able to climax through clitoral stimulation.
But that is not to say that I did not find it very interesting to learn about the different parts of my clitoral network. In the article on the Sexis Magazine, I read that most of the clitoral network is internal. That tiny part that is external seems to be the best part though. To me it is! I have studied my clitoris before. I took a mirror and looked at it, pulled my clitoral hood backwards and exposed the glans of my clitoral network. As I touched and studied it, I actually saw it getting bigger as blood rushed to it when the erectile tissue responded. It felt more sensitive to the touch when erect and moistening it intensified the sensations when I touched it.
I think the most commonly known parts of the clitoris is the glans and the clitoral hood. The clitoral hood is the equivalent of the male foreskin and it protects the clitoris. My clitoral hood is pierced and when I just got the piercing I really thought that I would be aroused all the time. However, my clitoral hood covers my clitoris enough to not feel the piercing at all times. It’s actually only when I am aroused and my clitoris is swollen that I feel the piercing pressing against my clitoris and then it excites me even more. Did you know that there are 6 to 8 thousand nerve endings in the clitoris? No wonder that tiny part of a female body can deliver the owner so much pleasure. I just love to softly rub my clitoris and feel all those nerve endings responding, almost to the point where it ‘burns’ in a very delicious way!
To make sure that you know what parts I am talking about next, I had to borrow the illustration on the right from the article on the Sexis Magazine. On this illustration the blue part is the glans of the clitoris. The yellow part is the ‘crus’ and this stretches out to the sides and are attached to the pelvic brim. Now, have you ever tried to find this? I have, but only after I have read this article. Now I must say that all the tissue ‘down there’ is sensitive, but rubbing where the ‘crus’ should be did not feel any different from rubbing my outer labia. When I pulled my labia to the side, the more I stretched them, the nicer it felt. Maybe at that moment I might have been stimulating the ‘crus’, but I don’t know for sure.
The green parts on the illustration are the bulbs of the clitoris and these consist out of erectile tissue too. It swells during arousal and are stimulated when you are penetrated. These two bulbs resembled the two tubes of tissue in the shaft of the penis that swell during arousal. When I have had a couple of orgasms, I feel even more aroused than when we started. Being this aroused, I love to be penetrated, whether with fingers or being fucked. It is such an intense feeling and mostly pushes me over the edge towards another orgasm.
From this article in the Sexis Magazine I did learn some interesting things. Some of those things I knew, other things I have just not stopped to think about. I always just accepted that my body is what it is and enjoyed the pleasure it gave and still gives me. I was never interested in the anatomy of my pleasure zones – not the internal anatomy that is. But this article sparked my interest enough to go search for other articles about the clitoris and maybe learn more. It’s also interesting to see the differences in views between the different writers, but I will leave it up to you to find those 😉
