Development:The clitoris develops from a phallic outgrowth in the embryo called the genital tubercle. Initially undifferentiated, the tubercle develops into either a clitoris or penis during the development of the reproductive system depending on exposure to androgens (which are primarily male hormones). The clitoris forms from the same tissues that become the glans and shaft of the penis, and this shared embryonic origin makes these two organs homologous (different versions of the same structure).
Little pea : Highly innervated, the glans exists at the tip of the clitoral body as a fibro-vascular cap, and is usually the size and shape of a pea, although it is sometimes much larger or smaller. The clitoral glans, or the entire clitoris, is estimated to have about 8,000 sensory nerve endings.
The clitoris and penis are generally the same anatomical structure: Upon anatomical study, the penis can be described as a clitoris that has been mostly pulled out of the body and grafted on top of a significantly smaller piece of spongiosum containing the urethra.With regard to nerve endings, the human clitoris's estimated 8,000 or more (for its glans or clitoral body as a whole) is commonly cited as being twice as many as the nerve endings found in the human penis.
External parts of the clitoris
The glans clitoris is the name of the external part of the clitoris—the part that most people call the “clitoris.”
It is about the size of a pea, and is located above the urethra. Because the glans is the most highly innervated area of the clitoris, it’s extremely sensitive to touch .
Unlike the rest of the clitoris, the glans does not swell or grow during the sexual response, as it does not contain erectile (expandable) tissue .
Just above or on top of the glans is the clitoral hood, which is formed by the two sides of the connecting labia minora . Clitoral hoods can vary in size and degree of coverage from person to person .
Internal parts of the clitoris
The majority of the clitoris is not typically visible.
Connected to the glans clitoris is the body of the clitoris. The clitoral body projects upwards into your pelvis, and attaches via ligaments to your pubic bone.
From the body (located in front of the urethra), the clitoris splits in half to form the paired crura (these are like the “legs” of the clitoris), and vestibular bulbs . These bulbs extend through and behind the labia, passing by the urethra, vaginal canal, and towards the anus .
The bulbs and crura contain erectile tissue that swells with blood during female sexual arousal. By swelling on either side of the vaginal canal, they increase lubrication in the vagina, while increasing sexual stimulation and sensation . This expansion of clitoral tissue can also cause pressure to be applied to the anterior of the vaginal canal
How to stimulate the clitoris ( a little guide)
Every person is different, and has different sexual erogenous zones, desires, and turn ons. We cannot stress this enough! There is no “one best way” to stimulate the clitoris — you’ll need to do some experimenting.
That being said, here are some tips to help you and your partner get off.
1. Set the mood. Be in a place in which you feel comfortable.
If you are with a partner, setting the mood could involve kissing, foreplay, and exploring each other’s bodies.
If you are flying solo, feel free to get comfortable with any other erogenous zones of your body (like your nipples). Don’t forget your mind — if you want and aren’t feeling particularly turned on by your imagination, you can also get your head in the game with some porn or sexy literature.
2. Introduce yourself to the area close to the clitoris.
Using whatever you like: your fingers, your partners finger’s or mouth/tongue, or another (clean) object like a sex toy. You can also try using a shower head, vibrator, or even the friction of your underwear against something, like a pillow. Once you feel comfortable with the area around the clitoris and are ready, it’s time to directly stimulate the clitoris.
3. Starting gently and softly, touch or stroke the clitoris.
The clitoris is not just a magic button, so simply pressing it (for most people) won’t instantly produce an orgasm. Don’t pretend to be a DJ either by forcefully scratching it back and forth—nobody likes that.
4. Take your time.
It’s a small area, and may seem daunting at first. “How can I be creative enough to stimulate such a tiny area of skin?” Listen to your body, or your partner, and get feedback on what feels good.
You could try gentle back and forth motions, small circular motions, or even a light tap.
Engage the clitoral hood too—remember, it also has nerve endings and the body of the body of the clitoris curves back behind it, before becoming buried inside your pelvis. Check in with yourself or your partner—does this feel good?
5. You can start experimenting with pressure, speed, body parts (like tongues if you are with a partner), toys, or vibration.
When most people are turned on, they begin to produce arousal fluid, which can help make stimulating the clitoris and vagina more comfortable.
6. Consider adding some personal lubricant to the mix.
We're big fans of lube.
7. You can also try stimulating the clitoris from the inside using a penis, sex-toy, or fingers.
Not everyone will be able to be stimulated or even reach an orgasm the first time, or every time, they have sex or masturbate—and that’s okay.
The only real important thing is that you enjoy yourself. If you aren’t having fun, don’t do it.
The external part of the clitoris, the glans clitoris, as well as the clitoral hood, can vary greatly from person to person.
Exposure to androgens can cause the clitoris to enlarge during any life stage, including during development in the womb, during childhood, and during adulthood.
BIG Clitoris :
What is clitoromegaly?
“Clitoromegaly” is a medical term meaning that the clitoris has grown larger than is typical in girls. Sometimes clitoromegaly happens during fetal development because of a DSD, so that a girl is born with a large clitoris. Sometimes clitoromegaly occurs during puberty, or even later in life, because of an underlying hormonal shift that is atypical. Clitorises naturally vary in size, just like breasts and penises also do. There is nothing dangerous about a large clitoris, although it might signal an underlying medical problem (like a hormonal imbalance) that needs medical attention.
Sometimes a girl is born with clitoromegaly because, during the time her genitals were forming in the womb, her body was exposed to more “masculinizing” hormones than is typical. Sometimes a girl experiences clitoromegaly during puberty because her body is either making or being exposed to higher-than-typical levels of “masculinizing” hormones.
When we are talking about “clitoromegaly,” we are speaking about the size of the part of the clitoris that is visible outside the body. This part is sometimes called the external clitoris. Much of the clitoris is actually contained inside the body, extending inward from the external clitoris.
The clitoris is a sexual organ and is the chief organ responsible for orgasm in women. Even in the relatively uncommon situation when a woman reaches orgasm via penetration of the vagina without external clitoral stimulation, that is often because her internal clitoris is being stimulated through pressure conveyed through the vaginal wall. When a woman is sexually excited (consciously or unconsciously), her clitoris will typically become engorged with blood, so that it will become warmer and larger. It is normal for clitorises to become flaccid and erect (temporarily smaller and larger), like penises.
