Push the button: what every woman (and man) should know about the clitoris.

Push the button: what every woman (and man) should know about the clitoris

by Emily Dubberley





Happy coupleDid you know that the clitoris is the only organ in the human body built solely for pleasure, and that in some women it is up to 14 centimetres long? Find out more about yours with this updated user's guide



Back in the early nineties, Margi Clarke went out on the street for The Good Sex Guide and asked men to identify the clitoris on a diagram. Almost all of them failed, spawning a generation of jokes about men's ineptitude when faced with the female anatomy (What do a clitoris, an anniversary, and a toilet have in common? Men always miss them).

I'm guessing they either asked a group of really stupid men, or they had poorly drawn diagrams. In the early 90's, they should have gotten better results from a representative sample of men than "almost all of them failed".

Thank you for sharing that here. It really seems that even though both of you were virgins and didn't know anything, you're both learning and doing all right, which is great. What is she doing in Canada? Is she working or visiting family? It must be frustrating and difficult for both of you to be apart.

One of the things I remember from my college days were a couple of hookups with an older woman. She taught me alot about what women liked and helped me learn.

Will you be visiting her often? That seems like a really long time to be away from your wife and kids.
