Lacking Orgasms? Get to know your Clitoris

Attention ladies! If you are lacking orgasms you might want to know a bit more about your clitoris, aka pleasure button.

There is probably a few things you don’t know about your clitoris that you weren’t taught in sex ed! In fact science is fast catching up on the once ignored mystery organ, but it might not be as complex as you think.

In saying that, there are real medical & physiological conditions that do prevent orgasming. Part Anatomy Class, Factoid and solutions we hope you get something out of it.

Get To Know The Clitoris

It Goes Deeper Than You Think…75% is hidden

The clitoris (as a total organ) is only partly visible on the outside of the body. In fact, 3/4 of the clitoris is internal, measuring to be 4 inches in length. Similar to the length of a non – erect penis.

What you see from the outside is the Glans Clitoris or ” head” cloaked under a protective hood.

So, it turns out the clitoris and penis are very similar. The main difference is that the penis is external, and the clitoris is internal.

As a matter of fact, the clitoris can also get erect and it also has a protective hood similar to a foreskin. The clitoris can also expand when stimulated, increasing in size by 300%! More blood flow increases the sensitivity of course, much like the penis.

It’s ageless

So, the clitoris won’t stop functioning regardless if you are 90 years old or 20 years old! During puberty, the clitoris will become larger but it will continue to grow through menopause as well. Sometimes growing up to 2.5 times bigger.

It will also change shape slightly depending on your hormones, nutrition and stress levels.

The Nerve of the Clitoris!

The clitoris has around 8,000 nerve endings! Sensations from the clitoris can spread to the entire pelvis area which has 15,000 nerve endings! Wowza!

That’s twice as many nerve endings than a penis! Different areas have different sensations!

Just for Pleasure Only

The clitoris only has one function, to give you pleasure. It also turns out, that once you’ve achieved a clitoral orgasm, to give it a bit of break. Continuous stimulation after an orgasm can lead to pain from an exhausted clitoris!

However it does recover quickly which means unlike men which have a long refractory period after ejaculation, some women are capable orgasming again within minutes of each other, providing the clitoris is not overloaded on sensitivity.

In terms of types of Orgasms, Clitoral is the winner! 

Around 50% – 75% of women need clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm. G spot orgasms, vaginal and cervical orgasm are still possible, but usually, a lot harder to achieve.

In fact, more women are confused and don’t realise it’s actually their clitoris being stimulated even through penetrative sex, and thus the reason for orgasm. Most clitoral orgasms will last between 1- – 30 seconds.

Orgasms actually begin in the brain, followed by 6 different tissues stimulating to trigger an orgasm, but the brain can also hinder an orgasm as well! Hello, overthinking?

Stimulating the Clitoris

Apart from direct hand or toy stimulation of the clitoral head, the G-Spot which research is discovering might just be the inside back of the clitoris is another way to fire things up. Trying different simulation spots, patterns and rhythms in different areas is great fun to see how it responds.

It all depends on how the nerve endings displaced on your clitoris to how it responds, no two clits are the same maybe.
