The clitoris: 10 mind blowing facts

The clitoris

The clitoris, probably the body part most women get their sexual pleasure from. We owe a lot to this little body part. But wait, our girlfriend isn’t actually that small!

  1. What we see with the naked eye is a small lump, which some men find difficult to find. The clitoris continues in your body for quite a bit. The largest part is located internally. In total, the clitoris can be up to 15 centimeters long. Bigger than the average penis
  2.  ‘What does that look like?’ you might wonder. It is a bit like a penis-shaped boomerang with legs. No joke, check this educational picture (top right).
  3. 3. You see how a clitoris reaches deep into your body and kind of ‘envelops’ your vagina.. That means the closer to your internal clitoris is to your vagina, the easier it is to come to vaginal stimulation. The same goes for your G-spot.
  4. All penises once started as a clitoris. During pregnancy the fetus first develops a clitoris. When the fetus becomes a boy, the clitoris grows out to be a penis. 
  5. The penis and the clitoris have another similarity. They are both protected by a piece of skin. The penis by the foreskin (unless the man is circumcised) and the clitoris by the clitoris hood. With excitement, the clitoris swells and appears from under her shelter.
  6. You shouldn’t think that a penis head is like a clitoris, because we ladies have a nice advantage. A clitoris has more than 8,000 nerve endings. That is twice as much as the penis head has. Take that, penises!
  7. Due to an increase in hormones throughout your life, the clitoris at the age of 35 can be about four times bigger than it is during puberty.
  8. Not every clitoris is the same size but that (unfortunately) doesn’t increase the chance of orgasming sooner or better. Each clitoris has the same amount of nerve endings.
  9. The main difference from the male genital area is that the clitoris is the only human organ intended only for pleasure. Ha!
  10. The word ‘clitoris’ comes from the Greek word for key and the verb keitoriazein: to touch or excite something for pleasure.
