this exhibit looks fking AMAZING! i wish i could see it.
i want to focus on one piece that i’ve been getting a lot of email about:
There has been some confusion about the G-Spot and the fact that people orgasm without touching the (external) clitoris.
I think what Cliteracy is getting at is that the vagina itself does not cause orgasm. The orgasmic feelings coming from vaginal penetration are caused by the indirect stimulation of the internal clitoris (the clitoris is much larger than the little nub above the vagina!)
as well as the pleasurable glands surrounding the urinary tract (the sea-weedy looking things).
This pleasurable area, located 1-2 inches inside of the vagina on the wall closest to your bellybutton, is commonly called “The G Spot”. Some people can orgasm from it, others can’t. Having a really intense G-Spot orgasm is on the less common side. What is common is orgasm from proper stimulation of the external clitoris, so don’t neglect it! :)
(Check out the CLITical Thinking episode on Sex+ for more info on the clit! The male and female “G-Spots” will be covered soon.)
Can I get this entire exhibit to pin on my wall, please.
