Definitely, when we mention this word, it’s a fact that every dad will always get very uncomfortable, and let’s not get started with our aunts. For many years this essential part of our bodies has been a taboo and nobody wanted to talk about it. Can you believe it was just discovered only 19 years ago? But you have nothing to worry about because here, we give you all the information you need to become a clitoris expert 🤓.

In these 7 interesting facts we tell you everything you need to know about this female sexual organ:

Pure pleasure: Its only function is to give pleasure. You read that right, the clitoris has no other function but to give sexual pleasure to the woman. Women have several points of pleasure and many of them have other functions in the body, while the clitoris does not.

One word: The word clitoris comes from the Greek “kleitoris”, which means “key”. What’s curious about this word is that it is practically universal, so wherever you are, you will know how to communicate it.

Now you see it, now you don’t: Only a quarter of the clitoris is visible, what you see on the outside are the head and the erectile tissue. The glands, vestibular bulbs, and pillars are on the inside.

Forever young: The clitoris does not age. Its ability to give women pleasure and intense orgasms is the same, regardless of age.

The most sensitive: This organ contains 8,000 sensitive nerve endings, so it’s considered the most sensitive part of the female body.


Hardness: The clitoris is made of erectile tissue that hardens during sexual stimulation and relaxes after an orgasm.

Not everything is what it seems: The clitoris is much bigger than you can imagine. On average, it’s between 3 and 4.5 in long and 6 cm wide.
