Definition - What does Clitoral Network mean?

The clitoral network is a complex internal structure made up of thousands of nerves and erectile tissues, similar to those of the penis. It extends around the vulva and into the clitoris. This term describes much more than the clitoral glans or head, which is commonly referred to as the clitoris.

Kinkly explains Clitoral Network

The term clitoral network is a more accurate term than clitoris to describe the network of tissues and nerves which can bring a woman to orgasm. The term clitoris typically refers to just the clitoral glans or head, but this is just one part of the clitoral network. While it contains more than 8,000 sensory nerve endings, 15,000 more are actually spread throughout the female genitals. Some experts even believe that the G-spot should be considered part of the clitoral network.

The majority of women require clitoral stimulation to climax, so the clitoral network plays an integral role in the female orgasm. As it spreads throughout the genital area, touching the clitoral glans isn’t the only way to stimulate it. It can also be stimulated indirectly through touching the vagina, urethra, and anus.
