Studies Say The Smaller Your Clitoris, The Bigger the Problem

pink buttonNew research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine (the only kind of medicine) is implying that it might not be the size and shape of the boat that matters, but the size and shape of the dock. That metaphor makes little sense,but come on board anyway. What I mean is: when it comes to female orgasm, size matters––clitoral size that is.

The vagina scientists used MRIs to scan 30 women’s’ pelvises. Of those women in the very tiny sample, ten had reported rarely or never achieving orgasm despite their best sexual and masturbatory efforts, the rest had what The Daily Mail referred to as “a normal experience during sex.” I’m not sure what a normal sexual experience is, but using context clues, I figured it means they had orgasms regularly.

Here is what the researchers found:

“Although adequate sexual function is complex, we document that clitoral size and location may be paramount in impacting sexual function, specifically orgasm.”

The clit may look like a little button nugget outside the body, but the whole clitoral complex is the boomerang shapes and extends into the body “and includes parts that are known as the body, crura, bulb and root.” The research implies that perhaps the smaller the distance between the whole clitoral-boomerang and the vagina makes orgasming more likely because the clitoris is more easily stimulated during vaginal intercourse. Basically, it could be that the smaller and farther and from the vagina, the less likely a lady is to come.

The team acknowledges that “these physical characteristics cannot be changed,” but that doesn’t mean progress isn’t being made, “understanding the physiology of the female sexual response advances knowledge.” Knowledge is good!

This discovery is pretty freaking cool for a number of reasons. because it focuses on female parts for once, values female pleasure and could lead to treatments for women afflicted with anorgasmia, the inability to have an orgasm and other types of sexual disfunction. This is progress, people. I see a future with no gods, no masters, and orgasms for everyone.

      Is it common to have your clit “inside”, i.e. it doesn’t stick out?

        There are a lot of tumblrs and blogs out there that show real images of vaginas that don’t look like what we’re used to seeing in pornography. I say, check some of those out and if you’re at all concerned about your parts, have them checked out by a physician.

      Even though it was a tiny study, any research being done into female sexuality is awesome. Heartening.
