New research suggests the clitoris is equally as important for reproduction as it is for sexual pleasure. But the evidence behind that claim is up for debate.
It was not until the late 1990s that the anatomy of the human clitoris was accurately described by Australia’s first female urologist. And now research in animals is starting to catch up.
It is normal for girls and women to masturbate, and there are even health benefits.
It is perhaps one of the most controversial debates in sexual function: is there, or isn’t there a G-spot? And if there is, how do we find it?
Did you know the clitoris is a large and complex organ? If not, it’s probably not your fault: in anatomical textbooks, few words and diagrams are devoted to understanding the clitoris.
