Happy International Clitoris Week everyone! It is the first ever Clitoris Week and is organised by “Clitoraid,” a Las Vegas-based group usually devoted to helping victims of female genital mutilation around the world. They celebrate sexual freedom and pleasure for all women in the world..
“The clitoris, this extraordinary organ of pleasure boasting the most nerve endings of all the human body (8,000 compared to 5,000 for the penis) has been ostracized from society for millennia because of religious dogma condemning women’s sexual pleasure. It has therefore been ill-studied (if at all), misrepresented (if at all) and of course made shameful. It is only in the last 5 years that it has finally been completely mapped and It appears that this organ actually rivals with a man’s penis in size. During echo graphic studies, the clitoris was found to reach eight inches in length made of thick highly pleasurable erectile tissue wrapped around the vulva and the pelvic floor. (which is why it is possible to restore a mutilated clitoris.)”
