Vaginal stimulation, clitoral play, labia sensitivity…. as we design our vibrators for women, we stay up-to-date with the latest research on female anatomy and pleasure by working with the medical community. Sensual toys are great tools to explore one’s body, but having access to reliable knowledge about sex and anatomy is key to unlock one’s pleasure potential. That’s why we invite sexologists on our blog. This week, we talk clitoral vs vaginal orgasm: what’s the real deal?
At last! The debate about the vaginal or clitoral orgasm is about to find a conclusion thanks to the latest findings about the clitoris. And here’s why!

The clitoris is often described as “a little bowl at the junction between the labia, above the vagina”. Actually, it is much bigger. This little bowl, that can be more or less prominent from one woman to the other, is only the visible part of the clitoris.
It’s now called the glans of the clitoris. It is extremely sensitive, as it has the same structure as the glans of the penis and even more nerve endings. Both the clitoris and the penis swell upon stimulation, and both have a prepuce. This little fold of skin protects this external part of the sexual organ.
Penis and clitoris have more in common: the internal part of the clitoris is made of two roots and two bulbs, that have similar structures as the cavernous and spongious bodies of the penis.
Those structures have erectile tissues. It means that they swell as you become aroused. The clitoris parts, external and internal, become thus bigger when stimulated. This is why some women prefer to be touched with the hand flat on the vulva, so that all the whole area be stimulated.
More or less pressure, more or less rapid friction, each area of the female sex has its own set of preferences for stimulation. The external part – clitoris glans and labia – are sensitive to friction, and internal part – the vagina – is sensitive to pressure.
The strength, the intensity and the rhythm are a matter of taste: each woman has her own likes and dislikes. They depend on the sensitivity, and can change during the lifetime, including with major events as childbirth or menopause.
Those latest findings about the clitoris are about to put an end to the big debate about the existence (or not) of two types of female orgasms: clitoral orgasm and vaginal orgasm. It might very well be two versions of the same thing!
In fact, the famous G Spot could be the area at the entry of the vagina, where the penis, during penetration, enters in contact with the arch of the clitoris – the internal area where the two bulbs join.
The more the clitoris gets aroused and swollen, the more it will be sensitive to the pressure of the penis during the penetration. Thus, all the orgasms would be clitoral, even the ones that some women feel as internal.
At last, women can move on to the real matter: how do they like to be touched? A question their partner should also wonder about…

Sex toys companies are taking the clitoris seriously, and offering a wide range of option for its delight. To help you navigate your options, we have wrapped up for you a little guide to clitoral vibrators.
Our ability to explore and enjoy our sexuality stems from a better knowledge of our body, and a curiosity to experiment new things. So, this week, we want to talk clitoris sensitivity, multiple orgasms, and masturbation techniques.
Toys for women are simply tools to unlock the wonders of the female orgasm. But without technique, they remain just that: tools. So this, week, we share anatomy-based and educated techniques for internal vibrator fun!
