 The clitoris is the only organ in the human body whose sole function ispleasure. In other words, the clitoris was built for orgasm. The tip ofthe clitoris is the round nub right above the meeting point of theinner labia. It is protected by a little fold of skin, or hood, whichis a good thing, because there are 6,000 to 8,000 nerve endings in theclit, and even a light touch is usually felt rather intensely. As withthe penis, the clitoris is composed of erectile tissue and gets biggerand harder when a woman is turned on. A lot of women prefer their clitstouched through the clitoral hood.

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

Because the clitoris is more extensive than we previously realized, the conflict between clitoral and vaginal orgasms should beover. Women who orgasm through vaginal or G-spot stimulation are being turned onby stimulation of a different area of the same sexual response organ aswomen who come from stimulation of the external part of the clitoris. Orgasmsgenerated from stimulation of different areas may feel different, butin a fundamental way they are the same. Of course, no way of reachingorgasm is better. All ways are good!

Women vary greatly in terms of the clitoral stimulation they prefer. Manywomen absolutely love being licked and sucked for example, but othersdon't. Vibrators, with their impressive range of intensities, offer anideal way to experiment with clitoral stimulation. Great beginnervibrators are the Wahl, the Hitachi, the Fukuoku finger vibe, and theRabbit Pearl.
