For men who sleep with women, the clitoris has always been a bit of a riddle. It’s powerful, yet temperamental; it’s feared as much as it is revered. Then, of course, there’s always the old joke about the poor guy who still hasn’t figured out where it is.

But, once coaxed out to play, it can rise up, stand to attention and radiate pleasure through the entire body. You just have to learn what it likes – and then use that knowledge to charm it to orgasm.
The Anatomy of the Clitoris
In order to begin, allow us to first take you on a tour of this fascinating piece of sexual anatomy.
If you have – or have interacted with – a clitoris before, you probably think of it as the small bit you can see outside the body. It’s located below the pubic mound, at the top of where the labia meet. For most people, it’s a very small and very sensitive area, which is why it’s huddle up inside a piece of skin called the clitoral hood.
This external portion of the clitoris – or the part you can actually see – is called the glans clitoris, and…
