7 Amazing Facts About the Clitoris


The clitoris is very misunderstood yet it is the gateway to pleasure for many people with vulvas. You can thank the lack of sexual education that none of us had.

Learning about sexual wellness is very important. Many people  —  no matter what gender  — know very little about the clitoris. What does it do? Where is it? Unfortunately, not only are they not aware of all the great high-quality sex toys and accessories out there, but they also don’t understand the female body and its potential for pleasure.

See our picks for the top 5 Luxury Clitoral Vibrators below.

7 Amazing Facts About the Clitoris

1. It’s Very Sensitive

The clitoris has approximately 8,000 sensory nerve endings (yes – you read that correctly) and affects over 50,000 nerves all over the body when stimulated. Although it might seem very tiny, it’s very powerful. Meanwhile, the penis has 4,000. Who knew?

2. It Is The Same Organ As The Penis

The clitoris and the penis started out in the embryo as the same genital tissue. Somewhere between 8 to 12 weeks after conception, the Y chromosome determines that this organ will be a penis. The clitoris develops from the same tissues that become the glands and upper shaft of the penis. This shared embryonic origin makes these two organs different versions of the same structure.

3. There is More To The Clitoris Than Meets The Eye

The clitoris resembles a wishbone, but you can only see the tip (the clitoral head) or the hood (the foreskin). There are two clitoral “legs” inside the body that goes along your labia and can be massaged or stimulated during penetration and extend down the vaginal wall.

4. The Clitoris Is Selective In Where It Appears

Did you know that the clitoris is only found in mammals, ostriches, and only a select few other animals? Interestingly enough, humans are the only species that use the clitoris for sexual pleasure. As Queerie Bradshaw said, “I’m glad I’m one of the chosen.”


5. Each Clitoris Is Different

Similar to how every woman’s body is different, so is the shape, color, and size of every woman’s clitoris. Some are small, some are big, some are hidden, while some aren’t shy. While aroused, some increase in size, while others remain under the hood. Some love a lot of pressure, while others prefer a soft touch.

6. It Grows

As a woman gets older and thanks to her hormones, her body changes. During puberty, the clitoris starts to grow. By the time she’s in her 30’s, the clitoris will be about 4 times bigger than it was at puberty. After menopause, the clitoris will be about 7 times larger than it was at birth. WOW!

7. It’s ONLY Job Is Pleasure

The clitoris is the only part of the body that is designed solely for pleasure and has no other purpose.  Although women might get older, the clitoris never ages. Once it matures, it’s ready to get to work and seek pleasure whenever she is ready.

Now that you have a better understanding of the clitoris, it’s time to get to work and seek the pleasure that the clitoris deserves!


Now that you learned these amazing facts about the clitoris, are you ready to stimulate your clitoris and access the pleasure that you deserve?
