Your Internal Clitoris

Illustration from Anatomy & Physiology, Connexions Web site, OpenStax College

Behold the amazing clitoris! There is so much more than the shy little button under the hood.  Officially called the glans, the visible clitoris has about 8,000 sensory nerve fibers. But there is so much more to the clitoral system.  The glans is connected to the shaft of the internal clitoris, system of erectile tissue under the labia and hugging the vagina.  The entire clitoral system has almost as much erectile tissue as a penis.

Watch Betty Dodson draw the internal clitoris as she describes the amazing internal clitoris and vulva.
