“Cliteracy” 101. Unraveling the Mystery of the Clit

Mystery of the Clitoris


Lest you be fooled, the small pea-sized “glans” (the rounded part forming the end of the clitoris) is only the tip of this wishbone-shaped symbol of goodness, the epicenter of female pleasure. Yes, the clit’s one and only purpose is to deliver dopamine packed, out-of-this-universe pleasure.

That is, if only you learn to speak her tongue. 😉 

For this short introduction to the clitoris, I’ll share the basic facts, as well as unleash the tips and tricks to enchanting this mysterious pleasure part, sending you home with the best kind of homework – better known as home-play.





Facts first.

In order to get down to the juicy tidbits of pleasuring, you first need to understand the structure of the clit and its layout within the body.

Clitoris Anatomy

The entire clitoris is shaped as an upside-down V, or wishbone, extending down from the tip of the pea-shaped glans down along both sides of the vaginal canal.

Both the pea shaped tip of the clit as well as the wishbone ends inside the vaginal canal are covered in pleasure-sensitive nerve bundles. In fact, the entire clitoris is linked with double the amount of sensory nerve endings as a penis!

In all, around 8,000 super-powered sensory nerves work together to send messages to the brain, releasing the pleasure chemical, dopamine, into your body.

When the clitoris is stimulated, the body increases blood flow to the area. This causes the clit to become more erect, doubling or even tripling in thickness, making it more available for stimulations, but also highly sensitive. While aroused, the clitoris engorges continuously, allowing for multiple orgasms. Lucky lady!

Four Steps to Personal “Cliteracy”

Not every woman is aware of the powers of pleasure that exist for her… but with a body part dedicated purely to pleasure, it’s worth experimenting to experience the benefits of clitoral pleasure and hone in on this physical power.

First, a few benefits of clitoral pleasure:

  • Stress relief
  • Relaxation
  • Connection
  • Out of body experience
  • A sense of happiness
  • Orgasm

To start you off on the journey to experiencing these benefits, here’s a simplistic 4-step process with some delicious details to getting intimate with the clit:

 

Bath Time Fun1. Book some one-on-one time with yourself to explore your own clit (unless you aren’t endowed, and then explore an agreeable partner). Just like anything, practice makes perfect. Light candles if you’re feeling romantic, or flashy party lights, whatever sets the mood.

 

2. Explore with your fingers first, everyone is different so take time in discovery – be curious! You honestly can’t spend too much time learning the various unique sensations that line the clitoris. Use your fingers to identify different motions and touchpoints to see how your body responds. A few techniques to experiment with:
  • Up and down motion
  • Circular motion
  • Tapping
  • Brushing over the clit
  • Rhythmic motion, lighter and harsher
  • Running your fingers alongside, and down the V wishbone

 

3. Grab a little lube. Not necessary for acquainting with the clit, but a nice to have for easy-to-get around and an additional little attention-getting sensation.

 

4. Once you’ve done your due diligence and enjoyed yourself tremendously with your fingers, becoming well acquainted with all the varying sensations, invite a toy in and give those nerve endings something to “oooo” and “ahhh” over.

There are sex toy and vibrators designed specifically for clitoral pleasure. You can learn more about these here.

Needless to say, whether you’re the partner, or whether you’d like to share your pleasure time and clit with a partner, Cliteracy--  knowing your body first and foremost -  is key to next level “sweet vibing’” pleasure.

Mind & Clit at Play Together

Follow the 4-step process, add in more steps, or make up your own path, whatever it be, to get the physical experimenting underway. As you continue to learn what feels best for your clitoris, you’ll reach different levels of pleasure depending not just on the physical sensations that occur doing your home-play, but from the mental aspect of pleasure as well. Indeed, there’s a bit more to the art of unraveling the mystery of the clit than just physical touch.

Consider this-

Psyche or Physical?

It certainly takes two to tango, and your state of mind, or psyche, also plays a large role in activating the pleasure of the clit. Physical touch and what captivates your mind work together to unleash the full potential of the clitoris.

There are a few techniques that can quickly conquer your psyche, and allow you to access your pleasure state as you explore the clitoris:

  1. Set your mind up for successful pleasuring by taking a deep breath: inhale, belly full, and exhale, in long, deep strides. Do this a few times until you feel your head is light and airy. This helps you relax and get in tune with your body and sensations will escalate for you in this state.
  2. Take a moment to be grateful for you being you. Love yourself. All of your beautiful body and spirit. Even say to yourself, “I love you”. We normally only think of saying it to other people, but it can be just as powerful when you say it to yourself.
  3. Close your eyes and capture this moment. Clear your mind. Prepare for fun and exploration.
  4. Recognize or seek out the emotions that arise when stimulating varying parts of the clitoris and surrounding areas.

Hopefully this has helped the clitoris no longer seem like a mysterious stranger we know so little about. It’s the powerful, empowering, sexy, enlivening, and stress-releasing all-in-one wishbone. Explore it, enjoy it, and give yourself some love!
