Everyone knows what's between a woman's legs, but does that mean you really understand how it all works? What some people don’t know is that the term vagina refers to the entire female reproductive apparatus. This is what many people refer to when really they just mean the vulva. The vulva is the external part of the vagina: including elements like the vaginal lips and the clitoris.
The clitoris is an extremely important part of the female anatomy, especially in regards to sexuality and sexual intercourse. While some guys out there may feel squeamish to talk about it or do some research, the proverbial "joy buzzer" is what brings us here today, and you'll be glad you've clicked on this link too.
Few things benefit a female’s pursuit of orgasm more than stimulation in this area. Research shows that around 75% of women need clitoral stimulation in order to have an orgasm. As such a potent, orgasmic piece of the female puzzle, what other naughty secrets could it be hiding? We pull back the hood and showcase some of the juiciest facts available out there. Talking about the "little man in the boat" can be a wild ride, but one that your partner will be glad you're taking! After you get through this list you’ll have a much better understanding of what’s happening downstairs for her. Knowledge is power by way of sexual prowess, so it's time to dig in.
10 The Key That Doesn’t Go to Her Heart
The word “clitoris” is Greek in origin. The exact reasoning behind the designation is unclear. However, people like to speculate on the original name-giver's intentions. There is a related Greek noun form, kleis. This means a key, or a latch or hook. Could this have been the coiner's intention? Name it “the key?” And the key to what, the female orgasm?
While we can only speculate about the original thought process behind the naming of the spot, we can agree on something. It is the most common key to the female orgasm. Intended or not, that interpretation fits!
9 Liking it Wet
This is true for pretty much the entire female system: it feels better when it is wet. And it’s not even that contact feels better when it’s wet; It doesn’t feel good when it’s too dry. It feels bad. Don’t put her through that.
Same applies to when you are just focusing on the "hooded lady". In the majority of cases, you’ll find that a woman much prefers some wetness when stimulating her, either with fingers or a toy. Use some lube to keep it moist if there isn’t enough occurring naturally. Another method would be the oral route. The moistness of your mouth can help make up for any dryness. Always be safe about it!
8 It Needs More
More than just traditional intercourse is needed, in most cases, for sufficient stimulation. Most women can orgasm from clitoral stimulation, but significantly fewer can orgasm from vaginal penetration. What does that mean? You need to stimulate the right place if you want her to climax!
Most times during regular intercourse, the male member misses the clitoris entirely. If you aren’t touching it, it won’t be stimulated! Pretty logical. Try stimulating the area before rushing to get it in the next time you and your partner are gearing up for a little romp.
7 Slow To Start
The right kind of build up can absolutely deliver a powerful experience for your woman. While this is a potent pleasure spot, it really takes its time to warm up. Average stimulation before peak arousal is between twenty and twenty-five minutes. That’s the average though. Even when it takes 45 minutes to hit peak arousal, it’s still normal! Everyone operates under different rates of arousal. There’s no reason to rush the experience, and there’s no “right amount of time” that achieving a climax should take. Take your time and settle in for however long peak arousal.
6 Times Change
Arousal tastes change, from day to day, week to week, even hour to hour. There are a number of factors that influence this. Stress is a primary factor. A particularly tough week at work could necessitate mixing it up in the bedroom. Hydration and nutrition also influence the arousal patterns of a female system. This is pretty different than the male pleasure part. What gets a guy going last week and the week before will most likely work again tonight. Best way to navigate a change in tastes is through communication. Speaking openly about it means better stimulation regardless of how it changes.
5 Pleasure Everlasting
In the majority of cases, a woman’s sexual response won’t diminish. Now, we mentioned that stimulation preferences can change from week to week. This consistency doesn’t have to do with the specific stimulation. Instead, it means that most women will never be able to “grow out” of this kind of stimulation. It doesn’t matter the age of a potential participant. Instead of dreading an eventual loss of sexual appetite, women can rest easier knowing that their pleasure days won’t come to an abrupt end.
4 Higher Peaks Than Men
The female pleasure response, especially when compared that of men, does a number of things better. From a purely reproductive standpoint, the clitoris can be called out for technically not playing a role in sexual reproduction.
Instead, it is purely a pleasure organ. Its sole function is to feel good for the lady to whom it is attached. Now, as we mentioned, there are different ways to stimulate it. It can take a bit of time, but it’s worth it. It may only be there for pleasure, but it’s extremely sensitive. It has a ton of nerve endings which make it such a delight for women when stimulated properly.
3 Standing At Attention
That’s right, a woman technically gets an erection when she’s properly aroused. Blood flows to the area and different parts of the vulva swell up to slightly greater sizes. Just like when a male's member enlarges upon arousal, a clitoris can become engorged with blood when someone or something is turning on the woman.
In fact, there are a lot of similarities between men and women in this regard. Though, as we mentioned earlier, a primary difference is the fact that a man's junk handles reproductive aspects where as a woman't fun spot is purely pleasure-based. While their real-life applications run parallel to each other, the differences are apparent.
2 Size Doesn’t matter
Every woman is different. Length and circumference are two helpful words when it comes to thinking about the dimensions of a woman's fun zone. These small organs can be over an inch long, and .1 to .3 inches in circumference.
Of course, for women the size really doesn’t matter. While size might play a minor role in stimulation preference, it ultimately comes down to what feels best for the woman. A bigger or a smaller joy buzzer doesn’t seem to have any effect on the pleasure received from the right kind of stimulation. It seems like women might really be winning the “better sexual apparatus” debate.
1 It’s Bigger
It’s thought that the complete clitoris could extend up to six inches into a woman, connecting somewhere to her pelvic bone. If that’s the case, six inches (in addition to however long the organ is that’s showing externally) means she could be “bigger” than you. With the average manhood size falling around five and a half inches, there’s plenty of opportunity for ladies to take home trophies in the length category.
There’s also research that suggests the internal sections look like a four-legged animal. Maybe that mimics your favorite position for stimulating such a powerful erogenous zone. Just remember that penetration can completely avoid stimulating the clitoris. Make sure to give it some attention!
