What is the clitoris and what does it do? Is it the same as the G-spot?

The clitoris is a sensitive organ whose only function is sexual pleasure. The glans or head of the clitoris can be seen just above the urethra and the opening to the vagina. It looks like a smooth ball of pink flesh and is hidden by a hood of skin when a person is not aroused. While the glans of the clitoris can be seen on the vulva, the rest of the clitoris extends inside the body and branches into a wishbone shape. Direct stimulation of the glans of the clitoris can lead to orgasm in some women but can be uncomfortable for other women. Many people with vaginas touch, or have their partners touch their clitoris, which can give them an orgasm.

The G-spot is inside the vagina, on the front wall and has a different texture than other areas inside the vagina. Some people with vaginas say that rubbing this spot gives them an orgasm. These orgasms sometimes result in ejaculation. That is, some people with vaginas spray a fluid out of the area of the urethra—not urine—during orgasm.

When a finger is inserted into the vagina, think of the opening as a clock. Pressing toward the front side of her body, toward the pelvic bone, is 12:00 and pressing down toward the anus is 6:00. The G-spot on most females is at 12:00. It is only about an inch or two inside the entrance to the vagina, and the skin feels uneven. The tissue usually swells a little during intense stimulation.

Since each person likes to be touched differently, talk with your partner about what exactly feels good, such as the place being touched and the amount of pressure used. Most people would agree that communication is key to the healthiest sexual experiences.
