clitoral truthLast night, our Soho store was host to Rebecca Chalker, author of The Clitoral Truth. I read this book when I first started at Babeland and I remember being completely in awe of the information in there. Most of what she said was completely new to me. Last night, this tiny little woman from Florida showed up with her slide projector and gave a very informational tour of the clitoris. Not how to use it, but all of the parts.Wait... parts, you're asking? Isn't the clitoris just that little nub I can see on the outside of the body? Well, it turns out the answer to that question is a resounding no. Here are some of the amazing things I learned last night1. In utero, up until 6 weeks gestation, every fetus - boy or girl - looks the same. In fact, they all have a female template. Then, hormones kick in and start to differentiate the male sex organs from the female sex organs. Why should we care? Because the tissues all start from the same place, every sex organ tissue a man has has it's analog in the female body. Or really, every sex organ tissue in the female body has an analog in the male body. Wow. In short then: clitoris = head of penis, shaft of clitoris (under the skin) = shaft of penis, G-spot/urethral sponge = prostate and so on. Pretty cool.2. The clitoris is a much bigger structure than we all assume. It has legs that extend back into the body and spongy tissues that engorge with blood (just like the penis and with the same names) that also extend back around the vaginal wall. Basically, the clitoris is everywhere! Stimulate the vaginal wall? It's really the clitoral spongy tissues you're moving - that's why it feels so good. The vagina itself has very few nerve endings.3. The urethral sponge (which some people call the G-spot) has ducts/glands which produce ejaculate and help that ejaculate come out of the body. Some people have more ducts than others which might help explain why people have different amounts of ejaculate.4. Ejaculation isn't a specific event. If I understood her correctly, Rebecca thinks that female ejaculate makes up much of the wetness that we feel during sexual arousal. It doesn't have to come out in a concentrated burst the way men ejaculate to be ejaculation. We secret that ejaculate fluid all the time.5. There are muscles that surround the anus that form a figure 8 with the muscles around the clitoris and vagina. That means that when you stimulate one, you're affecting the other as well. I always say in my workshops that everything is connected and is literally is! No wonder anal play feels so good!There's so much more but those were the most interesting things for me. I hope I was clear enough in explaining them. If not, ask in the comments or buy The Clitoral Truth (available in our stores).
