Happy Mother’s Day And Happy Clitoris Awareness Month!Aug 26, 2021
The only organ of the human body, where it's sole function is to provide pleasure, is the clitoris, found only in biological female bodies. Until as recently as the last ten years, it was seen as a little bulb of sensitive skin at the top of the vulva, but thanks to a Melbourne surgeon (in 1998) we can now see the powerhouse that it is.
Happy Mother's Day! Here is a special gift for you: the gift of empowerment and pleasure through knowledge about human sexuality. May is #ClitorisAwarenessMonth! I hope you find this information about 'Being a Sexual Being' useful, please enjoy and share it with others all over the planet. Now more than ever, we need to talk about the future landscape of human intimate connection. For both the current and especially the next generation, their experience of intimacy is being replaced with a performance and penetration focus.
What is the clitoris?
To achieve orgasm, stimulation of the clitoris is required for nearly all people who have one. People with a penis, imagine how difficult it would be to orgasm if sexual play for you just focused on the testicles and scrotum and ignored the penis all together...?
As Embryos, We All Start As Physical/Biological Female
The clitoris and penis come from the same embryonic tissue. Depending on the chromosome make up and hormones present, at approx. 5-6 weeks the embryonic genitals decide whether to become a penis or labia. The clitoris components are similar to a penis in that is has erectile tissue, such as the shaft, a glans, a foreskin etc.
Tips On How To Get The Most Out Of The Clitoris
- Physically stimulate it! Use hands, mouth, toys, lube or whatever else tickles your fancy
- Remember the brain is the most important and largest sexual organ - so this needs to be 'turned on' before the 8,000 nerve endings in the clitoris (double that of the penis) can work their magic
- For 80% of people with vaginas, penetrative sexual intercourse alone does not usually achieve the required physical stimulation of the clitoris required for orgasm
- Be patient and experiment
- People can orgasm repeatedly if the clitoris is stimulated again after each orgasm
- The vaginal orgasm is in fact thought to be a clitoral orgasm as the clitoral bulb surrounds the vaginal wall. The movement of the engorged clitoris against the wall probably explains the 'G spot' phenomenon
- Focus on 'outercourse' - everything except sexual intercourse
- Communicate about fears, needs, desires with your partner, especially outside the bedroom

History Of The Missing Clitoris - Proven By A Female Melbourne Surgeon In 1998
It was not until 1998 that a female surgeon/urologist from Melbourne gave us the first full anatomy ultrasound images of the clitoris, something we already had for the penis since the 1970s. She was the first to explain that part of the vaginal wall is in fact part of the clitoris-located at the 'G spot'.
