    External Clitoral Size and Clitoral Orgasms

    The size of the external clitoris (the part we can see that protrudes above the body's surface) can affect how long it takes you or hard it may be to achieve a clitoral orgasm. A recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that women who have trouble achieving orgasm had clitorises that were smaller than 'average', or they were positioned further away from the entrance of the vagina.

    "Researchers used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to scan the pelvic area of 30 women who were on average 32 years old. Ten of these women had reported rarely or never achieving orgasms despite trying. The rest of the participants reported normal orgasmic experience during sex.

    Comparing the two groups of women, the researchers found that the direct distance between the clitoris and the vagina (as measured by a line running straight through the body) was 5 to 6 millimeters longer on average in the group of women with orgasm problems. These women also had a smaller clitoris on average.

    The findings suggest that the size and location of the clitoris may be important in women's sexual function, said the researchers who detailed their study Thursday (Feb. 13) in the Journal of Sexual Medicine."--

    "Perhaps a larger clitoris has more nerve endings, and perhaps with direct contact and stimulation the clitoris can have more sensation, resulting in orgasms," Dr. Susan Oakley, an OBGYN at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    However, most studies agree that, "The size of a clitoris does not determine how sensitive it is, as the number of nerve endings is reportedly always the same regardless of size."

    So a larger clitoris has more surface area to stimulate, and thus may be more sensitive and easier to produce orgasms.  Therefore, women with a smaller clitoris may need to spend more time stimulating their clitoris to achieve orgasm, but that doesn't mean orgasms are impossible.

    And, the good news is that the clitoris continues to grow during a woman's lifetime due to horomonal changes in the body.  "When a girl’s puberty begins, the clitoris will start increasing in size. By the time puberty ends, the clitoris will be about 1.8 times larger. By the time a woman is 32 years old, the clitoris will be almost four times as big as it was at the onset of puberty. It doesn’t end there. After menopause, the clitoris will be about seven times larger than it was at birth."--

    Clitoral Hood Size

    "Phimosis in women occurs as a result of a recessed clitoris, where the hood of the clitoris is too tight. This prevents free movement of the clitoris and can be painful, especially during intercourse. It also prevents direct stimulation, thereby affecting a woman’s ability to reach orgasm. In a study conducted by Boston University School of Medicine, researchers noted that about 25% of the women they treated for sexual dysfunction also had phimosis.

    Phimosis diagnosis in women is not common, although the condition is relatively common. This is either because women are too embarrassed to discuss the problem with their doctors or because gynecologists routinely avoid the clitoral region during pelvic exams – for obvious reasons.

    The condition may be congenital or it may be a case of aquired phimosis. Things such as scarring, hormonal deficiencies, physical trauma from childbirth and surgical insult could cause damage and adhesions, leading to phimosis. Additionally, autoimmune phimosis may be the result of tissue destruction in diseases such as Lichen sclerosus. This is a progressive, chronic inflammatory condition affecting the skin of the anogenital region in females, and the glans penis and foreskin in males. It may be asymptomatic or involve severe itching, white patches, scarring and tissue changes, which may cause phimosis in both sexes, including child phimosis.

    While there is no standard phimosis treatment in women, one option in conservative contemporary treatment of phimosis consists of a simple operation called a hoodectemy. Excess prepuce tissue is removed, exposing the clitoris. This is a simple, quick procedure performed without the need for anesthesia."--

    The Internal Clitoris and Gspot Orgasms

    The clitoris is much larger than what we see on the surface however.  The internal part extends approximately 5" deep and is about the size and weight of the average penis (or zucchini if you prefer).  This sensitive erectile tissue hugs the urethral sponge, otherwise known as the Gspot.  So, even if your external clitoris is small on the outside, there is still the internal clitoris that can be stimulated.  And, while some women experience squirting via external clitoral stimulation, most women experience it from stimulation to the Gspot.  Learn more about the external clitoris in "Female Sexual Anatomy".

    Also, remember that there are many types of orgasms and many ways to get there.  I personally think we women stress too much about our orgasms, which actually contributes to not getting aroused.  It is hard to get aroused, relax and experience pleasure if we are too busy in our heads worrying about whether we will achieve orgasm, or if we will achieve the "right" kind of orgasm.

    There is no "right" kind of orgasm.  There are lots of kinds of orgasms, and everyone will experience them differently.  So it is important not to compare ourselves to others or worry about it, or be to goal orientated about it.  Explore you body, your pleasure, and learn what does turn you on, then work with that.  Let go and become embodied so you can feel pleasure.
