WAIT HOW BIG IS THE CLIT ?

The Clitoris is an organ that amazes and confuses men and woman alike. That’s probably because we are still learning more about a female’s anatomy and its not just what you can see from the outside.

Only ¼ of the clitoris is visible that is too say the small pearl or pea like button that people often point to as the clit. Did you know the clitoris extends up to 5 inches inside the body and down the labia. The longest clitoris measured was 12 inches long in total! The legs of the clitoris extend back and down into the body and is wishbone shaped.  From the top in front of the urethra the clitoris splits into the two crura or legs of the clitoris and vestibular bulbs. These bulbs extend through and behind the labia, passing by the urethra, vaginal canal and toward the anus. The bulbs and crura contain erectile tissue that swells with blood when you are turned on. The swelling also triggers natural lubrication.

There are many erogenous areas along the clitoral legs that can be extremely erotic for women.  Most people focus all of their attention on the clitoral head, and skip over the clitoral shaft, the urethral sponge, vestibular bulbs, glands, and the legs. Next time your playing alone or with a partner try exploring new areas of the clitoris. Try playing more with the shaft of the clit to tease or run a finger down the side of the labia to put pleasure on the legs. You can also try a g spot targeting toy to massage the urethral sponge on the upper inside wall of the vagina.

            There are countless ways to stimulate the clitoris inside and out so do some research and enjoy exploring and practicing new methods to find pleasure in you or your partner. Come by the Art of Loving sex shop here in Vancouver for more tips tricks and toys.
