Anatomy of the Vulva (external genitalia):
The clitoris is the female equivalent of the penis. It is designed purely for pleasure and has thousands of nerve endings. It is protected by a clitoris hood which retracts to allow the clitoris to engorge when aroused. It is extremely sensitive to touch, pressure and temperature, and some women prefer to be touched around rather than on the actual clitoris. The labia minora or inner lips have a spongy core and also become engorged on arousal. The vagina has few sensory nerve endings except at the opening and the inner two-thirds of the vagina are relatively insensitive. The vagina is highly elastic structure that lengthens during arousal.
