The Clitoris and Vagina

Where the clitoris and G spot is. How the vagina works. Why and how people squirt. Why they aren’t just ‘female sex parts.’

This guide can only really teach you some of the basics – you might want to have a look at your own private parts (in private) to find out how this all works for you.

 

***drawings and pictures of genitals below***

The vulva

Sexual body parts VULVAThe vulva are the external sexual body parts, as you can see in this picture. Everyone’s vulvas look and feel different so maybe get to know your own vulva.

The clitoris

Sexual body parts CLITORISThe clitoris is all about sexual pleasure and most people with one need it to be stimulated to have great sex. The penis and clitoris are very similar – so they can feel great to be touched, stroked, licked, rubbed, sucked or buzzed with a vibrator. Everyone is different though, so find out for yourself what you and they like.

If you look at the Vulva image above you’ll see that the clitoris looks quite small (about the size of a pea), but that’s only the bit that you can see. If you look at this image above you’ll see that the clitoris is actually really big. It is behind the labia and surrounds the vagina. The corpus cavernosa fills with blood which is then trapped to create an erect clitoris. The bulbs and legs become swollen and all throbby. On the outside the glans gets harder and swells – it’s packed with nerve endings and is estimated to be twice as sensitive as the penis glans (bell-end). This is the most sensitive part of the clitoris for many people. As the whole vulva swells sometimes the glans is hard to find but that area is still very very sensitive.

However other parts of the clitoris can also be stimulated through the outer lips but also inside the vagina ….

The vagina

Sexual body parts VAGINAWhen the vagina is aroused it changes shape and size dramatically – as you can see in this picture. It gets much wetter, more relaxed and stretchy. Most of the stretching happens deep inside the vagina near the cervix. The fornix (the upper one and the lower one – or the anterior and the posterior for you sex geeks) stretches loads which means the full length of the vagina doubles in size. The fornix is where a penis or sex toy or fingers go. If the vagina isn’t aroused, the fornix doesn’t stretch and can make entry sex feel uncomfortable or painful.

The first third of the vagina is very sensitive as it is possible to stimulate the clitoris and prostate in that area, however many people find different parts of the vagina are more sensitive at different times. Some people find that the fornix area is very sensitive. Lots of people say the upper wall of the vagina near the opening is very sensitive .

The G spot

Many people find that the upper or front wall of the vagina has an area which is particularly sensitive to the touch and can have orgasms from having this area stimulated – many people call this the G spot. Not everyone likes this area to be touched and prefer different areas. But some really do. It can be sensitive because of the location of the clitoris but also the prostate.

The prostate

Formally known as the ‘Skene’s Gland’ the prostate surrounds the urethra – although it it varies in position and shape. It’s from here that some people ejaculate a fluid which is similar to semen when they orgasm – this is commonly known as squirting or just ejaculation. Just because someone is squirting doesn’t mean that they are having a ‘better’ or ‘more real’ orgasm than when someone isn’t squirting. Some people do and some people don’t. More on the history of the research of this here.

The urethra

Lots of people don’t realise that they don’t pee out of the vagina. Above the vagina but below the clitoris is a small opening where urine leaves the body. This is also where a fluid leaves the body when some people ejaculate (this is thought to be a fluid a bit like semen). It’s also possible to get an infection in the urethra, this is know as a urinary tract infection. To prevent this it’s a good idea to try to have a wee after sex.

The hymen corona

Sexual body parts CORONA HYMENThis is thin folds of mucous tissue surrounding opening of the vagina – this used to be called the hymen. It stretches over time so the entry to the vagina opens more. The shape of the corona varies. It might bleed or hurt for first time sex but only if someone is not relaxed, or ready or turned on enough. Remember sex should not hurt. It should feel nice, first time and every time. It used to be said that the ‘hymen’ is a membrane of skin tissue which breaks: this is no longer accurate.

The labia

Sexual body parts labiaLabia (sometimes called vaginal lips or even ‘flaps’ by some people) are there to protect the clitoris, urethra and vagina. When someone is feeling really sexy (turned on/hot/etc) their labia fill with blood and swell up. They also part to reveal the clitoris and vagina and often feel moist when aroused. There are two sets of lips the inner lips and the outer lips. As you can see in the pictures here, they come in different shapes and sizes. For instance, sometimes the inner lips stick out above the outer lips sometimes not.

Cleaning the vagina

Vaginas have a natural scent, which varies from person to person. Lots of people like this smell, or don’t mind it, but some people don’t like it. You should take care when cleaning the vagina. The vagina has it’s own pH levels (acidity levels) caused by the natural discharge which travels along the vaginal canal – this discharge cleans the vagina. That’s right the vagina cleans itself (clever vagina). Getting any soap or too much water into the vagina can change the pH levels which can stop the vagina from self-cleaning, this can cause an infection which makes the vagina sore and smelly. So really, the best way to clean the vagina is to leave it alone!

Female sex parts

This page used to be called ‘female sexual anatomy’ but of course, it’s not just females, girls or women that have these bits in their pants. Find out more about sex and gender diversity over here.

      That’s a very good question. I think the answer depends on the person really. Lots of people might say it’s the first time that someone has entry sex with someone – but then this leaves lots of people out, particularly those who don’t have sex with a penis. Also it kind of makes that sound like the only ‘real’ kind of sex which I don’t think is right. One kind of sex isn’t more important or more real than any other. Plus someone could have entry sex which is a bit ‘meh’ but have non entry sex which is totally mind-blowing.

      What do you think it means?

        Sorry. I actually lost you there, I needed to know about entry sex, Like for example, if one has entry sex for the first time with this particular person, like completely turned on and then for some reason the one has to have sex with another particular person. so will that person be able to tell if the virginity has been lost to someone else before? or is losing virginity for women is conceptual like it is for men?

          Sorry I wasn’t very clear – it isn’t very clear! I think it’s more conceptual and it depends very much on what you think virginity means. Also is it important?

            I think virginity is a concept, it’s a state of mind. We, men, have made a BIG issue over a SMALL tissue..
            Intercourse is a natural phenomenon and human beings must have learned that before even they learned how to speak. It’s the best way to communicate with your partner when you two have that special emotional attachment.
            I think over the years MEN have changed their idea of “A VIRGIN GIRL”. I consider beautiful female minds – VIRGIN…always.

    I do believe all of the ideas you’ve offered on your post.
    They’re really convincing and will certainly work.

    Still, the posts are very short for starters. May just you please lengthen them
    a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    Google ” G-Spot myth”. It doesn’t exist. There’s never been proof of it.
    Female ejaculation is impossible and a myth also without scientific merit or proof. Please stop perpetuating false information.
