The Ultimate Guide to Clitoris Stimulation
Did you know that the word "clitoris" is derived from the Greek word for "key"?
How fitting, indeed.
In fact, the reality is that the majority of women (close to 75%) need to have their clitoris touched to reach their climax.
In other words - sexual intercourse alone will not give you orgasms.
Which clearly means that sex toys, especially those that target the clitoris, are quite necessary not only for climaxing on your own, but also to help you climax when with a partner.
Let's learn more about this vital organ that many people truly do not understand.
Don't forget to check out our comprehensive guide to sex toys to learn exactly why sex toys are so valuable for achieving sexual bliss.
Anatomy of the Clitoris
While you may know the clitoris as a small bulb above the vaginal opening, in reality, the clitoris is only partially visible to the naked eye.
The clitoris is actually nearly four inches in length, with a wishbone-like shape.
But the majority of it is hidden from view within the female's body.
The clitoris has 8,000 highly-sensitive nerve endings!
While we all know how sensitive the clitoris is, this numerical fact may come as a surprise.
Particularly because we always assume the penis is the most sensitive organ on the human body - male or female.
But in reality, the clitoris with its 8,000 nerve endings leaves the penis completely in the dust.
Such a high-concentration of nerve endings all in one small place emphasizes just how much attention this organ should be getting!
In fact, getting intense, direct clitoris stimulation can lead to near-immediate orgasm.
When using the right sex toy of course!

The clitoris is the female equivalent of the penis
This is also probably something you did not know!
The clitoris and the penis both come from the same genital tissue.
At 12 weeks gestation, the baby's genitalia starts to differentiate between the two.
So the clitoris is more similar to the penis than you may have thought.
Like we already mentioned, it has plenty of nerve endings.
It even has an equivalent of a foreskin - also known as the clitoris' hood.
It has some erectile tissue and even a very small shaft.
And the clitoris actually swells up when aroused - just like the penis!
