The clitoris is a woman’s most sensitive spot. The clitoris, also called clit, sits between the labia.
If the clitoris is stroked or licked, it swells up. You get a nice feeling in your body. Prolonged stroking can lead to an orgasm (climax). Of course, this only works if you’re in the mood and having sex with someone you like.
Outside and inside
The clitoris is much bigger than you think! Your clitoris looks like a small lump, but the majority of the clitoris is on the inside of your body. Concealed behind the labia, it surrounds the opening of the vagina. The G-spot inside the opening of your vagina, is therefore part of your clitoris. This is a recent discovery.
See for yourself
- The outer part of the clitoris is a little pink ball, APPROXIMATELY 3 to 8 mm in size. This is called the clitoral glans.
- This glans is at the top of the inner labia. Exactly at the point where these 2 lips meet.
- It’s concealed behind a foreskin, also known as the clitoral hood.
You develop breasts during puberty. This could start in a girl of 8, but also in a girl of 14. Age varies for all girls
During puberty, a girl has her first period. For about 5 days, some blood, mixed with mucus, flows from your vagina. You can use tampons, sanitary pads or cups to soak up the blood and mucus.
