Do all women have a clitoris? when I play with my partner I can feel the shaft of her clitoris, but even with stimulation the "pea" won't pop out. She tells me that it has never come out of it's hood. Is this normal?

  • The clitoris was "discovered" by (male) doctors four hundred years ago. No comment possible on that. However, recent research by Dr Helen O'Connell showed that it is much bigger than originally thought:

    "There' s nothing quite like the shape of a clitoris," she said.

    "The glans are dense with nerve endings and receptors - all the vibration and sensation is there."

    The bulk of it is shaped like a pyramid, she said.

    Its base forms the external genitalia or vulva; its triangular "walls" are wrapped around the urine-carrying tube known as the urethra and the vagina."

    (This may explain much of the clitoral/vaginal orgasm mystery.)

  • Try gently using one hand at the top of the hood to pull it back to show the clitoris, and yes all women have one. Try using lube to stimulate her more and as she gets more turnd on the 'pea' should reveal itself.
