Here’s some trivia: for vulva-havers, which part of the body exists solely for pleasure? The clitoris! With 8,000 nerve endings, it was anatomically designed for feeling good. This small organ peeks out from the top of the vulva, often covered by a hood, and extends down the inside of the labia.
The clitoris is a lot like an iceberg; it seems small from the surface, but it actually is quite extensive and deeper than it appears. Although you can’t see it, the clitoris is actually shaped similarly to a wishbone. The visible part is only a tiny fraction of its entire structure. “The organ has "legs," that look sort of like a wishbone, that travel along the pelvic bone and are anywhere from 2.25 to 2.5 inches long,” sexuality educator Jane Fleishman, has explained.
By engaging both the visible and invisible parts, it can make for more arousal and deeper pleasure. Similar to a penis, the clitoris will swell and become more sensitive when you are aroused.
Some liken the clitoral orgasm to a localized, tingly feeling, often felt on the surface of the body. They can range from small spasms to full-on body euphoria.
For many, a clitoral orgasm is the easiest way to experience orgasm. In fact, studies show that 36% of vulva-havers require clitoral stimulation to get off. Whether you have one or not, it can be confusing as to how or where to hit that spot and enjoy the pleasure that it has to offer. The reality is that it’s truly not as complicated as it seems, and when embraced it can make for some powerful peaks. So let’s debunk this mystery and learn a bit about the clitoris and how to have a clitoral orgasm.
So how do we work with something that we can’t really see? The good news is that like most sexual activities, touch and sensation can help guide you. It takes some time for your clitoris to get aroused and may be too sensitive to be touched directly. Take this time to stroke around the clitoris and labia.
To find your own or your partners’ clitoris, start at the lips, aka the labia. Follow them up until you reach the top of the vulva and once you see the small hood/flap, you’ve found the tip of the clitoris! Explore gently pressing the hood of the clit or rolling the hood back and forth with increasing pressure as arousal builds. As stimulation intensifies, more direct stimulation of the glans can be applied. A good way to stimulate the clitoris is by gently rubbing with fingers, a palm, or tongue in a circular or back and forth motion. It can also be stimulated internally by massaging the labia in a clockwise motion.
Everyone is different with the type of pressure and stimulation they enjoy - if you’re looking for a rumbly or vibrating sensation, below are some of our favorite sex toys and lube options for clitoral stimulation.
