WARNING: This post contains a topic of a sacred sexual nature and is intended for married readers only. Those who are currently unmarried are advised to keep to the standards of the Church and refrain from reading the married sexual instruction that follows.
I found this very helpful article written by Kyle Towers and Dr. Sadie Allison that I wanted to share for my professional quote this week. This article was too big to post on the LDS Marriage Bed Facebook page, so I’m posting it here on my blog.
It has been edited for an LDS audience, but if you want to read the original article, you can find the link below. Although, I also give my caveat that their version I found to be a bit profane.
“The clitoris is every woman’s — and smart lover’s — best friend. Yet proper education on its capabilities has eluded humanity until recently. In fact, it wasn’t until 1998 that the anatomy of the clitoris was properly mapped out.
Predominantly male scientists have long dismissed its existence, even removing it from anatomy diagrams. Which really makes you wonder… Why?
...Hopefully the following facts about this God-given organ, which solely exists for pleasure, will inspire married lovers to make it a focal point of foreplay.
1. The Clitoris Has Two To Three Times More Nerve Endings Than The Penis
While this helps give pleasure to a wife during foreplay and sexual activity, it also might be why your clitoris is often too sensitive for direct contact.
So be sure to inform your husband about how to touch or indirectly touch your clitoris, accordingly. This may require some experimentation and clear communication. Trial and error is part of the process, and you have all eternity to perfect it.
2. Just Like Your Love For Each Other, It Never Stops Growing
Your clitoris can grow to be 2.5 times larger than it was when you were a teen.
3. All Penises Started Out As A Clitoris
When we were ... embryos, we all had a vulva (what is commonly thought of as the vagina, but includes all the parts of a woman’s genitals). The embryos which had Y chromosomes and therefore became male, morphed their clitoris into a penis, and their outer labia into a pair of testicles.
4. Can a woman have an 'erection'? Yes, actually...she can.
Because the penis was formed out of a clitoris, both are made up of the same spongy tissue, which expands when aroused. So women, in a sense, can also have erections when aroused.
5. Clitorises Come In A Variety Of Different Colors
In fact, no two vulvas are alike. Which is kind of special in itself if you think about it. Each new bride has her own special vulva that she can share with her husband that is unique to what any other husband gets.
This makes it extra sacred in my book.
6. A Clitoris Can Be The Same Size As Some Men’s Erect Penises
That’s right! The visible part of your clitoris is only the tip of the iceberg.
It’s actually 3-5 inches long, mostly positioned on the inside along the vaginal canal, and makes multiple forms of orgasm possible. This includes C-spot, G-Spot, A-Spot and even anal orgasm – which leads to the next advantage a woman has over men in having a clitoris.
7. Unlike Most Penises, a Woman's Clitoris Is Not A “One Hit Wonder”
The clitoris is capable of having multiple orgasms, because after an orgasm it retains most of its blood.
You may find that you need a little time to recover, because it becomes very sensitive directly after. But it bounces back, ready to orgasm again (and again, and again…) quite quickly.
8. Use It Or Lose It!
Didn’t you know? A clitoral orgasm a day, keeps the doctor away.
It’s incredibly rare, but there is a medical condition known as clitoral atrophy, which occurs when the clitoris doesn’t receive enough blood flow. This can cause the clitoris to retract into the body, or even result in the clitoral hood fusing to cover the clitoris head and shaft.
No, you don't have to use it literally every day, but do use it regularly, to keep it (and your marriage) healthy.”
