The clitoris is the only organ in the human body whose sole function is pleasure. In other words, the clitoris was built for orgasm. The tip of the clitoris is the round nub right above the meeting point of the inner labia. It is protected by a little fold of skin, or hood, which is a good thing, because there are 6,000 to 8,000 nerve endings in the clit, and even a light touch is usually felt rather intensely.

As with the penis, the clitoris is composed of erectile tissue and gets bigger and harder when a woman is turned on. A lot of women prefer their clits touched through the clitoral hood, whether with a finger or a vibrator like the Jimmyjane Form 2 or the Laya Spot Vibrator.

The visible nub of the clit, called the glans, is just the tip of the iceberg. The clitoris continues on from the exposed tip, primarily in the form of two clitoral legs which stretch back beneath the labia on either side of the vaginal opening. There are significant areas of erectile tissue, muscles, nerves and blood vessels which are part of the complex organ which responds to sexual tension and resolves in orgasm.

Most women orgasm from stimulation of the clit, but they vary greatly in terms of the stimulation they prefer. Vibrators, with their impressive range of intensities, offer an ideal way to experiment with clitoral stimulation.
