The clitoris packs a punch when it comes to orgasm, and is often the seat of a woman’s pleasure.

An orgasm from clitoral stimulation can feel quite different from an orgasm that occurs as a result of vaginal stimulation, even though the two are quite interrelated.

The clitoris is much larger than we can see with the eye.  It is made of two parts, the top part we can see (glans) and the part we can’t see (crura).

Glans of the Clitoris:Clitoris_anatomy_labeled-en_svg

The glans (head) of the clitoris can be found just above the urethra. The size varies from 2.5 – 5 mm in length — about the size of a pea.  The body of the clitoris extends into the woman’s body and connects the glans with the crura (legs of the clitoris). The shape looks a lot like a wish bone.

Crura (Legs of the Clitoris):

The legs of the clitoris, also known as “the crura”, extend deep inside the body, running under the labia on both sides of the vagina.  The legs are made of corpora cavernosa, spongy erectile tissue, which fills with blood when aroused much like a penis. To learn more about Male Sexual Anatomy

The clitoris has the most nerve endings of any other part of the body (approximately 7,000 – 8,000).

So, no matter whether you are having vaginal or clitoral stimulation, your clitoris will be, at the very least, “indirectly”, stimulated. It’s a magical little power house!
