What is a Clitoral Orgasm?
A clitoral orgasm is the kind of delicious orgasm that, you guessed it, results from stimulating the clitoris. The clitoris that we all know and love is that small, sensitive organ located at the top of the vulva. Of course, there’s much more to the clitoris than meets the eye, but we’ll get back to that! The clitoral glans that most of us are familiar with as the clitoris is completely packed with nerve endings – about 8,000 to be precise, which is twice as many as the penis. As a result, it’s an absolute powerhouse of pleasure. When these nerve endings are stimulated to the owner’s liking, they can produce intense, pleasurable sensations that can lead to orgasm.
What Does a Clitoral Orgasm Feel Like?
A lot of you may be plenty familiar with the lovely experience of having a clitoral orgasm. But let’s break it down for anybody who hasn’t and is still curious. Keep in mind that this experience is very different from person to person. Although, everyone can agree that the overall experience is… pretty dang good.
As with most sexual stimulation, it all starts with arousal. Of course, this can happen independently of the physical stimulation. However, once the physical stimulation of the clitoris sets in, it’s this arousal that grows and gradually builds up with your movements.
Heightened sensitivity and arousal along with the stimulation builds up as this pleasurable pressure in the pelvic region. Tipping over the edge toward orgasm will have those sensations intensify!
Some people describe the orgasm itself as a wave of pleasure. Delightful pulsations or contractions in your core send ripples of pleasure throughout the body. This leaves most people with a sense of release and euphoria.
What Happens During a Clitoral Orgasm?
Your body goes through several changes during a clitoral orgasm. Your heart rate and blood pressure increase. The pupils may dilate, and you may experience involuntary muscle contractions in the pelvic area. Your body releases endorphins, the feel-good hormones, which can lead to feelings of happiness and relaxation.
The Clitoral Structure
Alright, let’s return to the (very important) anatomy of the clitoris! The clitoris is quite a complex structure. We’re just not able to see it with the naked eye! The visible part of the clitoris, the “glans” or the “head”, is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s also a clitoral hood (basically the vulva equivalent of the foreskin), which protects the sensitive glans. The clitoral body itself extends inside the body and splits into two legs or crura. The vaginal opening is nestled right under or between these legs. So, when we’re talking about internal sweet spots, we’re most likely talking about the internal structure of the clitoris being stimulated from within! The big reveal: the G-spot is just another part of the clitoris!
The Myth of Two Different Kinds of Orgasms: Vaginal VS Clitoral
Understanding the full anatomy of the clitoris, helps us understand the misconceptions about the different kinds of orgasms out there.
There’s a common myth that there are two different kinds of orgasms: vaginal and clitoral. But the truth is, most orgasms are clitoral orgasms. The clitoris is the primary source of female sexual pleasure and is involved in most types of orgasms.
What is often referred to as a “vaginal orgasm” often has to do with stimulating the G-spot. Well, we know that the G-spot is just the clitoris. So, they technically aren’t two separate kinds of orgasms.
The “Difference” Between a Clitoral Orgasm and a G-spot Orgasm
Okay, we’ve established that a g-spot orgasm or vaginal orgasm is essentially the same thing as a clitoral orgasm. So, how can there still be a difference there? Well, most people find that they feel different. While the clitoris is being stimulated during both kinds of orgasms, it is being stimulated in different ways and in different areas. Rubbing the clitoral glans which is packed with nerves, will feel different from internal stimulation of the crura or bulbs.
All in all, the types of stimulation and sensations vary. While the clitoris is the star of the show, the show can look very different depending on which side of the audience you’re on. A “clitoral orgasm” typically results from direct stimulation of the clitoris, either externally or internally, and is often described as more intense and focused. A “g-spot orgasm”, on the other hand, results from stimulation of the g-spot and is often described as deeper and more spread out.
