It’s simply misunderstood…
And yes, men this is for you, too. Medical ignorance around the female body is as old as the patriarchy. The full scope of the Clitoris for example has only been fully 3D mapped less than 10 years ago. It is actually not just a little knob, it looks much more like a swan and it’s erectile tissue is almost the same size as that of a penis!
Women can sense that our cultures view their body with confusion at best and outright disdain and disgust at worst. I have sat in many female circles where women still view their own genitals as inadequate. We need more clitoracy, more understanding of our own bodies before we can even start to expect magic with ourselves and our lovers. Watch Sarah Barmark on this wonderfully educational and entertaining TED talk help us get a greater perspective on female sexuality.
CLITORACY- 5 amazing facts you didn’t know about her!
1. SHE’S S`ENSITIVE
2. SHE KEEPS GROWING
3. SHE WAS MADE FOR LOVING YOU, BABY (sing it loud)
4. SHE IS MULTIORGASMIC BY NATURE
5. SHE LOOKS LIKE A SWAN
Only one quarter of the clitoris is actually visible. The rest of it is inside the women’s body. Besides the clitoris being made up the clitoral head, the hood and the clitoral shaft, it is also composed of the urethral sponge, erectile tissue, glands, vestibular bulbs and the clitoral legs. Only the clitoral head and the hood are located outside the body. Some sex experts believe that the G Spot is actually a part of the clitoris.
The clitoris varies in size and shape on different women. Some are hidden under the hood, and some stick out. Some like to be touched softly and others like a lot of pressure. It takes time to get to know a woman’s clitoris. Don’t assume that you know what it likes. Take your time and get to know each unique clitoris, just like you would take the time to get to know the woman it is attached to.
