Why do you compare the innervation of the clitoris to the head of a penis? I can only assume that it is because you bought into the "popular notion" that the head of a penis is the most sensitive erogenous part. Which it is is definitely NOT. In fact, in a study in 2007, the head is the LEAST sensitive, and the foreskin is the actual erogenous part of a penis which corresponds to the clitoris. (BMJ) And it contains some 20,000 to 50,000 nerve endings composed of a type known as Meisners corpuscles. Men who have been circumcised "might" actually have some Meisners corpuscles on an area about 1/4 sq in on the frenulum (if they are lucky). This accounts for the fact that most men(in the US) may actually never had an orgasm but instead only ejaculations mistaking THAT for orgasm. I'm not a doctor, but I am much more knowledgeable in this study due to extensive study into circumcision. I know a LOT more than they do as I have studied materials they don't get in medical school. The subject is so extensive that even an hour long discussion of it will only cover "high points" I can easily understand why most people are ignorant on the subject.. I found one website to be particularly informative on all aspects of the subject, ethical ,legal , physiological ,neurological etc. CIRP.org

You can't give a "nerve count" for the clitoris, much less compare it to "the penis" (or a part thereof). The number of nerve endings has been shown to vary widely between individuals. I suspect the same is true for men. (More nerves is not necessarily better: It can lead to overstimulation and even pain. Search for info from legitimate web sites if you don't want to take my word for it.)

why don't females say squirting? guys say cumming, instead of orgasim.
ffggddss (1 year ago)
+ roughy It's true. Of these 3 states: • erection • ejaculation • orgasm — all 8 on/off combinations are possible. A few of those are much rarer and more difficult to achieve, but all of them can be done.
roughy762004 (1 year ago)
+courtney Vegan My best friend told me, "Squirting just happens involuntarily, it happens because of penis shape (curved upwards) rubbing the area behind the bladder, sexual position putting pressure on the bladder, involuntary pissing during orgasm, is all it is. BUT there are women wired to squirt/piss as part of their orgasm some more intense than most. Women even squirt involuntarily throughout the day. porn just blows everything out of proportion."
courtney Vegan (1 year ago)
roughy762004 squirting is the new male ego. can you imagine a guy saying he did not make his girlfriend squirt,while another guy says,yah I did her good,she squirted good.
courtney Vegan (2 years ago)
Females can fake a orgasim. You can't fake liquid. Now I read from a female on the net saying it was pee,she is wrong. I think it's like when a female gives blow job,but there is no liquid. A guy can say,ya I had a orgasim.

Hate to say it - BUT...the male UNcircumcised penis actually contains around 22,000 nerve endings, for which most - are actually spread out right through the foreskin itself!!! (and some parents mutilate their male babies which destroys most of what God put there for A BUNCH of reasons - including much, much higher states of arousal, sensitivity & sexual orgasm!!)

If the clitoris is "endowed" with so many more nerve endings than the head of the penis why have cover articles in Cosmo for the last, I don't know what 30 years been on "How to [fill in the blank] make sex better for you" and the whole time guys have been shrugging their shoulders and saying wtf?

A woman does not have a tiny penis. A man has a large clitoris. Because the clitoris comes first!
Waters (10 months ago)
Scientific truth? Your statement made no sense. Men don't have "a large clitoris", nor do women have "a tiny penis". They're simply homologous biological structures, referred to in different ways. Nice try, though.

Why can't I feel anything with my clit? It's seriously one of the *least* sensitive parts of my body. I can feel pressure, but that's about it. :S
+zzdfhgdhd Do I need to spell it out for you? I don't have a parental lock. "Large clitoris" will bring up pictures of likely photoshopped clits or porn star pictures. You're naive. 
All pussies are different. I don't think searching "average clitoris" will give me anything meaningful. 
+BDSandM I don't know what a "large clit" is supposed to look/feel like o.o xD
BDSandM (2 years ago)
+International Space Station Is your clitoris really small? I read that clitorises on the smaller side feel less sensation because there's less surface area to work with. Which is completely fine and normal. It might be unfortunate, but as long as you can achieve orgasm by using vibrators, there's really nothing wrong with that. Accept what you have and just be creative. Everyone has their own methods. OuO
+Ace1King1 All it took was me going to college and having the freedom to buy my own vibrator. It does take a lot of stimulation though lol really huge amount of vibration to stimulate me. xD

Chelsea Keesler (3 years ago)
It's true that an uncircumcised penis has more nerve endings that a clitoris because of the nerve endings in the foreskin, but she was specifically talking about the head of a penis. There is debate as to whether or not the entire structure of the penis has as many nerve endings as a clitoris, but the number often used (4,000) is usually attributed to the head..

I have a question why can/do women wear each others clothes and men don't wear other men's clothes. Now I am excluding undergarments because no one should share those. But what about pants, Shirts, shoes at most I have a few buddies who will share a hat but that's like it. Also maybe totally unrelated or maybe not but why do you think a man will get hung up on like a favorite jacket and wear it till it falls apart but women aren't supposed to wear the same outfit twice?

Cristen when did people (mainly women) who have blonde hair been known to be dumb? I've grow up hearing the term "you're such a blonde" when I didn't use common sense knowledge or I made a mistake. I do get self-cautions having blonde hair because I don't want someone to see me as a "dumb blonde" who cares only for my looks- I sometimes like to do my homework and read books in public to have think I'm a intellect person (sad I know). I know I'm not dumb but actually pretty knowledgeable person and a bit of nerd and lately a bookworm (which I am proud of!). I'm just want to know why do people associate the blonde hair to being dumb.

groot: If the alternative is not knowing your pee comes out a different hole than your menses or not knowing that oral sex can give you STD's it doesn't really matter if you want to hear about it from someone not female, you NEED to. Also I am pretty sure I didn't want any of this information from my mom but I sure as hell needed it. The gender of the person should be immaterial. Knowing these things is important. I have seen way too many parents on Fmylife complaining about misinformed pre teens and teens who could have used SMNTY or a parent willing to have conversations with them. One woman had a 16 year old daughter who thought she would get pregnant by her b/f peeing on her. KNOWING THINGS IS IMPORTANT. I cannot stress this enough.
