We're kicking off International Clitoris Awareness Week with these essential facts!

Happy International Clitoris Awareness Week! Of course, clitoris awareness should be an everyday event. Any excuse to celebrate the clitoris is a welcome opportunity to get more in touch with the crown jewel of the female sexual system. Most women (and those who love them) are well aware that the clitoris is the most pleasurable part of the female body. But here are five facts that you may not know—and this knowledge will transform your sexual experience.

Clitoral stimulation is usually the primary way women reach orgasm. It is the female anatomical match to the male penis, so keep that in mind when you consider its importance in the female sexual experience. Imagine a man trying to achieve orgasm without touching his penis! For the vast majority of women, clitoral stimulation is the most effective path to orgasm. In The Normal Bar study, 81 percent of women reported climax through erotic touch alone, rather than through intercourse. We recommend that women experience orgasms through manual or oral stimulation before penetration every time they have intercourse. Orgasms before intercourse make penetration way more pleasurable—and highly increase the odds of women experiencing orgasm during intercourse itself.

 

Women get erections! The clitoris has erectile tissue, just like the penis. During arousal, the clitoris swells and grows visibly in size. The amount of swelling ranges from woman to woman—on some women the change is dramatic, on others it is more subtle. The erectile tissue fills with blood and the swelling exposes more nerve endings to touch, making the clitoris even more sensitive. Get to know your own clitoris intimately by looking at it both before, during, and after arousal. Enhance your clitoral erections by maximizing blood flow to the pelvis. Techniques like butt massages go a long way towards relaxing chronic pelvic constriction that can limit blood flow. Once you relax the tension, more blood can reach your genitals and you'll experience stronger erections, more sensation and stronger orgasms. Keep reading...
