Clitoris

Updated: JULY 20, 2020

A clitoris is a small, sensitive organ located at the top of the genital cleft where the inner labia meet. Similar to a penis, as a woman becomes aroused her clitoris fills with blood and expands, becoming very sensitive to stimulation.

More About Clitoris

A clitoris can come in many shapes and sizes. It will feel firm in contrast to the surrounding tissues of the vulva, which are soft and spongy. The clitoris glans and shaft (the sensitive part) is normally covered by the clitoral hood, which can make it harder to locate. Once stimulated and aroused, the clitoris can increase by up to double its size as it fills with blood and changes color.

Stimulation of the clitoris alone can lead many women to orgasm, whether that be by hand, mouth, or sex toy.
