Every Girl Should Know These 10 Things About Her Clitoris

November 17, 2015 3 min read

You may think you know your body, but chances are, if you were asked the nitty gritty questions about every intricate nook and cranny, you might be left feeling a little defeated. It's OK to admit that, every day, we continue to learn a little more about our bodies, yet, the millions of questions never seem to dissipate. And when it comes to our sexual organs, there's just never a moment to close the door, and let it all rest, because who wouldn't want to gain a deeper knowledge of that which provides us with so many things? The clitoris, which is the Greek word for "key," is a pretty fascinating piece of the puzzle known as the vagina. And, it really IS the key ... the key that unlocks your sexual pleasure center. Ready to dig in? Let's go!

1. The clitoris is the most sensitive part of the body.

While a penis comes complete with 4000 sensory nerve endings, the clitoris has over 8000!

2. It's kind of like a penis.

Babies begin with similar genital tissues, and after 3 months, they develop either a penis or a labia. The clitoris also sort of looks like a penis, since it has glans, foreskin and a shaft! And just like a penis, blood rushes to the area, making it "hard."    

3. It has one purpose.

While other body parts have more than one purpose, like the breasts for nursing, the vagina for giving birth, the clitoris serves solely for sexual pleasure.

4. Studies have only recently given it the attention it deserves!

Crazily enough, it wasn't until the 1990s that the clitoris' full anatomy was discovered. At the forefront of exposing this awareness was Sophia Wallace, an American conceptual artist. Check out her work, "Cliteracy: 100 Natural Laws."

5. It continues to grow!

While it has nothing to do with your sexual activity, it does grow throughout your life. It actually starts when a girl hits puberty. By the 30s, it is four times larger. When it's near menopause, it's seven times larger. The change, however, is not obvious.

6. They come in different shapes.

While some are small and hidden, others are large and protruding. Some require more pressure, while others are fairly tender. Remember, there is no "ideal" size. You are your unique and perfectly you.  

7. It doesn't grow old.

Once the clitoris reaches its maturity, its pleasure potential stays at a constant. So, the orgasms you have in your 60s are much like the ones you had in your 20s.

8. You don't see the whole thing.

That's right. All the eye sees are the glans. But beneath the surface is a wishbone shape, including two legs that are three inches into the vagina, connecting the clitoris to the G-Spot. The part visible is the clitoral head and the hood.  

9. The clitoris is the key to orgasmic bliss.

It's been found that 75 percent of women require clitoral stimulation to reach climax. And the distance between the vagina and the clitoris is important too, as the shorter the distance, the more intense the orgasm. As you reach climax, it swells in size, becoming extremely sensitive.

10. If you stop using it, you might lose it!

If you don't use your clitoris, then the hood closes in, since it requires blood flow to stay up to speed.   Were you aware of all of these facts about the clitoris? Source: Popxo

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
