The Fabulous Clitoris: More than Meets the Eye

Most people, if you ask them, will say that the clitoris is a little nub at the top of where the inner lips of the vulva meet.  But, this external part of the clitoris, the glans, is only the tip of the iceberg.

“The fact is, though, that most of the clitoris is subterranean, consisting of two corpora cavernosa (corpus cavernosum when referring to the structure as a whole), two crura (crus when referring to the structure as a whole), and the clitoral vestibules or bulbs.”

melodiousmsm from the museum of sex blog has written an amazing article all about the clitoris.  In it she explains:

“The corpus cavernosum also extends further, bifurcating again to form the two crura.  These two legs extend up to 9cm, pointing toward the thighs when at rest, and stretching back toward the spine when erect.  To picture them at rest, imagine the crura as a wishbone, coming together at the body of the clitoris where they attach to the pubic symphysis.

Near each of the crura on either side of the vaginal opening are the clitoral vestibules.  These are internally under the labia majora.  When they become engorged with blood they actually cuff the vaginal opening causing the vulva to expand outward.  Get these puppies excited, and you’ve got a hungrier, tighter-feeling vaginal opening in which to explore!”

This is the best article I have seen describing the whole of the clitoris structure and more specifically, the internal parts that surround the vagina and the two legs that spread back into the body like a wishbone.  The clitoris, like female orgasms, is amazingly complex and super fantastic.

“Let’s also remember, female orgasm is not solely about the clitoris and vagina either.  It is far more complex and also involves the workings of multiple nerves, tissues, muscles, reflexes, and mental effort.  Some women can think themselves to orgasm.  Others can orgasm simply by flexing their pelvic muscles.  Considering all the components involved plus the variability of human beings and their anatomies, it’s extremely important to remember no two people are the same. What works for one woman may not work for another.  In other words, it’s all custom under the hood.”

Because the clitoris extends so deeply into the body, most sexologists today believe that the clitoris has a lot to do with G-spot orgasms (even though they feel different), and that when you are creating G spot stimulation, you are actually stimulating the internal clitoris, as these structures are all inner-connected inside.  Amazing right!

    The length of the internal is about the same like the length of the outerlips. The longer the outer.lips, the longer the internal clit.

    I’ve always found its best to go slow and work more inward as you go along, some girls love it right on their clit, others prefer the outer edges, read their body and you will do well
