DEFINITION OF CLITORIS: WHAT IS IT?
The clitoris (or clit, clit) is part of the vulva. The external parts of the female genitalia are called the vulva. The clitoris is located above the vaginal opening, at the end of the labia minora, and the outer diameter (the visible part of the clitoris is called the clitoral hood) measures 0.7 to 1 cm. The clitoris is an organ about 8 to 12 centimeters long that surrounds the vagina. You should know that the head of the clitoris has 10,000 nerve endings (compared to 6,000 for the penis)!⚡️
HOW DOES THE CLITORIS WORK?
Its strong vascularization makes the clitoris erect, just like the male penis. Our clit becomes erect under the effect of excitement by gorging itself with blood. And yes, it swells during sex or masturbation and becomes very sensitive!
It has several functions, the first is to allow the opening and lubrication of the vagina before penetration. The second is to send a positive signal to the brain which transmits this feeling of pleasure. Unlike the penis, the clitoris plays no role in reproduction, the only role of this organ is related to female pleasure.
WHAT IS THE CLITORAL ORGASM?
A myth ! We explain to you 😉 The clitoris is the most sensitive erogenous zone of the body, it is indeed the main source of female sexual pleasure. Thanks to its high concentration of nerve endings, when stimulating the glans of the clitoris, the body of the clitoris internally or by massaging the outer labia, a sexual physiological response is triggered.
But then why would the clitoral orgasm be a myth? Well, the clitoris, both anatomically and functionally, is the subject of much debate. Taboos surrounding female sexuality and pleasure have led to a lack of research on these topics. For a long time the difference between a "clitoral orgasm" and a "vaginal orgasm" was unclear. We know today that a "vaginal orgasm" in fact always concerns the clitoris because it is stimulated by each movement during vaginal intercourse with penetration or the contraction of the pelvic muscles. This is why the clitoral orgasm does not exist in itself but the clitoris plays the most important role in triggering an orgasm.
Remember, although orgasm is a source of intense pleasure, some women find it difficult to have one. It does not matter, having an orgasm is not obligatory, the important thing is above all to do good.
HOW TO STIMULATE YOUR CLITORIS OR THAT OF A PARTNER?
There are several ways to stimulate a person's clitoris because each individual has their own preferences. Maybe you prefer to be caressed? Or do you love the feeling of friction against the gland of your clitoris? Or even being licked right on the hood of the clit? Other people on the contrary prefer to be touched with the fingers directly and that one concentrates on their lips or their vaginal entrance.
Vaginal penetration will stimulate the inner part of the clitoris. This can be done with fingers, a penis or a sex toy (including a clitoral stimulator). Also think about lubrication to make the caresses more pleasant. The love juice will be a good natural lubricant, but you can opt for other types of intimate lubricants such as the lubricant from My lubie or the libertine oil with CBD from Ho Karan .

ON THE CLITORIS & CLITORIDAL STIMULATORS
For fun only! It's the only organ that's only used for that: it has no reproductive function, it's just there for fun (hehe). The stimulation of the different parts of the clitoris leads to a natural lubrication and dilates the vagina to facilitate penetration and therefore the excitement of people.
Because of Sigmund Freud, there is a false debate about being either one or the other. According to the psychoanalyst, clitoral orgasms were the infallible sign of sexual and psychological immaturity, and sometimes even related to mental illness. He claimed that clitoral orgasms were superficial and immature, while vaginal orgasms obtained during penetration (thus thanks to a man of course) were real and mature. So stop asking yourself the question: vaginal penetration causes internal friction of the clitoris so the two are linked!
Honestly the most important answer would be: by asking your partner what they prefer. There is no shame in being guided by the other and following the instructions given! Each body is different, each desire and preference too. Perhaps your partner prefers stimulation fast, slow, a bit of both, one way or the other... The secret recipe for giving pleasure to the other is to be attentive as well as to to be aware of his satisfaction (or not).
We recommend the SILA non-contact stimulator from the super brand Lelo. This essential sex toy features a wide mouth and vibrating waves to deeply stimulate the clitoris and surrounding erogenous zones for delicate yet intense pleasure.
