The female clitoris is full of nerve endings and is consequently one of the most sensitive spots on a woman’s body. Because of this enormous sensitivity, some women enjoy direct stimulation of their glans clitoris. For this same reason of sensitivity, however, some women do not enjoy direct stimulation as it may feel uncomfortable or even painful.
There’s something about the power of vibrating products that can make it easier for many women to orgasm. We don’t fully understand why vibrators are so effective at easing some women’s orgasms, but they can be.
The glans clitoris sometimes seems to fuse to the clitoral hood. Changes to the structre of the vulva, whether to the clitoris or the vaginal lips, can occur as part of menopause, when estrogen levels decrease, or as a result of a genital skin condition such as one called lichen sclerosus.
