Women's Sexual Anatomy

The External Female Sexual Organs

The name that covers all the external female sexual organs (also known as the genitals) - i.e. the parts you can see - is the vulva.

The different parts of the vulva are: the large, outer lips called the labia majora; they join at the top at the mons pubis, a soft mound that is covered with hair after puberty.

The smaller, inner lips called the labia minora that are usually found within the labia majora.

The clitoris is located at the point where the inner lips join.

 

And the vestibule is the almond-shaped area within the labia minora where the urine passageway and the opening to the vagina appear.

Labia Majora

The labia majora, the outer lips, are the outermost part of a woman's genitals, and they vary in size and shape from woman to woman. After puberty they are usually covered with hair. During sexual excitation, the labia majora swell and flatten out, exposing the vaginal opening. This is caused by extra blood swelling the vessels.

The labia of women who have had a child show the response a little more strongly than the labia of women who have not. After menopause the labia majora thin out and lose most of the fat that gave them shape and prominence; they no longer swell and then flatten out as they used to.

Mons Pubis

The mons pubis (the "pubic mound"), also called the mons veneris (the "mound of Venus"), is the deposit of fatty tissue over the pubic, bone. It becomes covered with hair during puberty.

Labia Minora

The labia minora, the inner folds of tissue, are not as thick as the labia majora, but they are more sensitive and can give sensual pleasure when they are fondled, kissed or touched. When a woman reaches a certain level of sexual excitement, her labia minora change color.

This color change is called the sex skin change and indicates that orgasm will occur if the stimulation continues. The labia of women who have not been pregnant and had a child become a glistening bright red; in women who have sex after having a child, the change is to a deep red wine color.

At the same time as the color change happens, the labia minora become larger because of the increased blood flow that is a natural result of sexual stimulation. When there is no more stimulation, both the large outer and the smaller inner lips return to their usual size and shape within a short period of time.

The external genitals of women often used to be referred to as the pudenda, which is Latin for "thing to be ashamed of." This is part of the legacy of embarrassment, fear, disgust and detachment about their bodies that women have to come to terms with. It is no wonder that women have had such a difficult time accepting their bodies in our culture, and in many others around the world, as being competent and important in themselves, and not just in the service of others.

There are clitoris pictures here....the clitoris, which you can find where the labia minora or inner lips meet, has a single function - to give pleasure to its owner by producing a female orgasm. The innumerable nerve endings in the clitoris and the area immediately around it mean that it is very sensitive to direct or indirect contact. The clitoris consists of a head or rounded area, called the glans, and a longer part, called the shaft or body. Stimulation of the glans results in orgasm.

Men - would you like to see whole body orgasms with female ejaculation?

Well, the female orgasm is easy to attain! How? Orgasm Arts is a program with only one objective: to clearly show how you can help your partner reach a G spot orgasm. An orgasm so powerful it will make her shake and squirt with pleasure....click the play button below to find out all about Orgasm Arts.

woman having an orgasmThis program shows you exactly what to do, and how to do it, so that you can quickly and easily bring your partner to a G spot climax.

The techniques are explained simply and clearly, so within days or weeks you and your partner will be sharing the intense pleasure of whole body climax and female ejaculation. You can't really imagine what this is like until you've experienced it....it's such a different kind of sexual experience.

A woman who has enjoyed this kind of orgasm will want to connect with you at every level -mind, heart, and body.

Because, after enjoying a whole body orgasm, a woman always wants more sex with her partner - and at this point she is swollen, juicy, warm, and very receptive to you. This makes intercourse more intense, more rewarding, and above all more satisfying, both physically and emotionally, than you could ever imagine.

The end result? Complete emotional and sexual fulfillment for both the man and the woman. She feels loved, adored and cherished, not to mention emotionally loving and open to her partner. You feel like a powerful man - a man who who can provide his partner with a climax so powerful she'll ejaculate forcibly, getting more sexual pleasure than she ever thought possible.

Jason Julius, who presents the video program, demonstrates (with the help of a model) all the simple techniques you need to locate and stimulate any woman's G Spot so that she achieves intense, long-lasting orgasm.

He shows you how to make sure she actually ejaculates at the moment of orgasm, which increase her pleasure many times over....and when she does, that you'll get so turned on that sex takes on a whole new dimension. 

The Clitoris

The body of the clitoris is usually covered by the tissue of the inner lips, which make a hood to protect it. In its normal state, when it is not stimulated, a clitoris size - pictures on the link above - is about that of a cherry pit. The normal variation in length is from an eighth to one half of an inch. You can also see clitoris pics here, and, indeed, here - for those who are interested in female anatomy!

When it is stimulated, it fills with an extra flow of blood and increases in size: both the shaft and the glans enlarge - the glans can double in diameter. As stimulation continues and orgasm approaches, the clitoris retracts and moves under its hood. It moves out again when the stimulation stops. After orgasm the clitoris returns to its normal size within about ten minutes.

If the woman doesn't have a climax the extra blood that has flowed into the clitoris in response to her stimulation may remain there, keeping the clitoris enlarged for perhaps several hours. Many women find this uncomfortable. In both men and women's orgasms, climax leads to a dispersal of the extra blood.

Yeast Infections

While common infections such as Candida albicans yeast infections may be merely troublesome, some are much more persistent and serious. Indeed, some women are troubled by vaginal yeast infections for much of their lives.

The best remedies may lie with your doctor, but it is also worth considering home remedies - which, incidentally, are gradually being proven to have a scientific basis. That includes yeast infection home remedies such as Yeast Infection No More. You can find these cures here - in fact, they are a fascinating collection of home remedies compiled into a program called Yeast Infection No More by Linda Allen.

Vaginal vs clitoral orgasms

There has been, and continues to be, a controversy over an alleged difference between orgasm produced by stimulation of the clitoris alone and orgasm produced with a penis in the vagina. Freud believed, and many of his followers continue to believe, that it is appropriate for a young girl to fondle her clitoris and so achieve sexual pleasure and orgasm.

But, they said, in order for her to mature as a woman she should come to accept and prefer orgasm induced by a penis in the vagina - "vaginal orgasm." If she fails to make this transfer, her psychosexual development is arrested. Freud and his followers therefore placed a strong positive value on "vaginal" orgasm, and a negative one (except for adolescents) on "clitoral" orgasm.

But very few women can reach orgasm through vaginal thrusting, and even if they do it is usually associated with clitoral stimulation. For one thing, men ejaculate far too quickly for most women to come this way - they need much longer stimulation than the average 9 minutes of intercourse. Advice for men on controlling ejaculation can be found here, a website all about Ejaculation By Command by Lloyd Lester.

Masters and Johnson and other sex researchers and analysts have shown that the physical indicators of orgasm are identical, regardless of the way the orgasm is produced - whether it's by a penis in the vagina, a hand, tongue or vibrator on the clitoral area, by breast fondling or through fantasy. Physically, what is happening to the woman at the point of orgasm is the same.

However, the orgasm produced through stimulation of the G spot and by stimulation of the clitoris do not feel the same to a woman, either physically or emotionally. The reason seems to be that while the outward signs of all orgasms are similar, some orgasms involve different nerve routes to others.

 In fact, the deeper stimulation of the internal vaginal tissues of the G spot seem to produce a deeper orgasm mediated through different nerve pathways, which some women describe as a whole body orgasm and report as being emotionally more fulfilling.

It is of course the case that women vary widely in the way they prefer to reach orgasm. Many women find that orgasm produced by direct stimulation of the clitoral area feels more intense than orgasm resulting from a penis in the vagina.

Equally, a great many women find orgasm with a penis in the vagina to be more fulfilling and meaningful. The important issue, then, is for each woman to be able to achieve the feelings she wants and finds most satisfying.

To do this she has to select the right context and she probably has to be able to communicate with her sex partner to indicate what she wants and to arrive at a situation where both people may achieve the satisfaction they seek.

A woman's clitoris may become sore (as any part of any person's body may become sore) if it is rubbed a lot. The body is then issuing a simple cue to stop until the soreness ceases. That cue is entirely sufficient as a guide to individual behavior.

Vestibule

The vestibule has two main parts, the urethra and the opening to the vagina. The urethra is the passageway that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. Its opening is below the clitoris and above the opening of the vagina.

Just below the urethra is the vaginal opening, which is the beginning of the vagina itself. The vaginal opening is not a large hole unless it is being penetrated or a baby is being delivered, and can best be seen in a sexually unaroused woman when both sets of labia are parted.

The Internal Sexual Organs

Women's internal genitals are described as follows: the hymen, the thin piece of tissue that partly blocks the entrance to the vagina; Bartholin's glands, on each side of the labia minora, which secrete fluid when a woman is sexually aroused; the urethra, the urine passageway; the vagina, the passage that leads from the vulva to the cervix, otherwise known as the neck of the womb; then there is the womb or uterus, in which a fertilized egg can grow into a fully developed baby prior to birth; if an egg is not fertilized, the lining of the womb will be shed in the process called menstruation.

If the uterus should become diseased it may have to be removed in the operation known as hysterectomy. At the upper end of the uterus are  the two Fallopian tubes, along which the woman's eggs pass and where they meet a man's sperm; the eggs are stored in  the ovaries, of which there are two.

The Hymen

Just inside the opening to the vagina is the hymen or maidenhead, a thin piece of tissue which partly covers the opening to the vagina in women who have not yet had sex or in whom it has not been broken in some other way (e.g. during masturbation or during the insertion of tampons). You can see vagina pictures here.

Traditionally, the hymen would be broken during first intercourse. It has been regarded as yet another way in which men have assumed ownership of a woman's sexuality - the wedding night being the time when the hymen was traditionally broken, and the woman lost her virginity, regardless of how many times a man had had sex before marriage.

It varies in size and shape from woman to woman. The hymen does not cover the entire vaginal opening, since there must be a hole to allow the menstrual flow, or period, to leave the body.

The hymen can be separated when the body is stretched strenuously, as in exercise or sports; it can be separated during intercourse or by inserting a tampon during menstruation, and sometimes it is separated for no apparent reason.

A separated hymen is not an indication of having had intercourse, nor can it prove a loss of virginity. As a matter of fact, some women have to have the hymen removed surgically (in a hymenectomy) because it is so flexible, or tough, or small that it remains intact during attempted intercourse.

Sexual intercourse can be severely disrupted if the pleasure of sexual contact is broken by the man ejaculating too early. www.massivestayingpower.com is good on suggested cures for this.

Although he may be satisfied if he ejaculates normally, he will not experience as much pleasure as he would if he had built up greater sexual tension through longer foreplay, and his partner will almost certainly feel let down - disappointed - if she does not have the opportunity for extended sexual connection with her man, of the type she most loves - which is the intimate embrace of sexual intercourse during which she is able to feel him inside her vagina for as long as it takes him to reach orgasm and ejaculate.

This is an act of the most profound significance for both the man and the woman, but the symbolism of penetration tends to be much greater for a woman - it is the opening up of her most precious and special place, her vagina; the entry of his penis into her body during sexual intercourse is both a physical and an emotional crossing of her boundaries.

Men who have difficulty controlling premature ejaculation and who do not know how to develop greater staying power may therefore feel a deep psychological sense that they have let down their partner in both a physical and emotional way.
