Cliteracy: Free Podcast Episode

Cliteracy is an art project designed to educate and inspire people about the majesty of the clitoris. Sophia Wallace combines street art, sculpture, textiles and typography to educate and get people literate about the clitoris.

In a world where attention is scarce having projects that are both educational and entertaining – creating edutainment is often a great way of getting people’s attention.

She made an enormous gold statue of a the structure of the clitoris and set up a clit rodeo, where people rode this massive clit like a bull.

She also collaborated with several rap artists to create a rap battle of the clit vs. the penis.

One of her main projects is making posters of “the 100 natural laws of the clitoris.” She also posts some of this info as street art in New York City as if she was doing an advertising campaign for the clitoris.

Some of the points she is highlighting are around the anatomy of the clitoris. If you listen to our podcast regularly you may already be aware of many of the facts about the clitoris. It is awesome to see that most of the info Wallace is spreading through her art about the clitoris is information we regularly share on our podcasts. You are probably already more cliterate than the average person.

  • Wallace mentions that in 1969 we put the man on the moon and in 1982 we invented the internet but it wasn’t until 1998 that we discovered the full anatomy of the clitoris.
  • If you know the anatomy of the clitoris well it can take just 4 minutes to create orgasm, which is the time many women take to reach orgasm during masturbation.
  • The small button like structure we think of when we think of the clitoris is not the whole deal! It is in fact more like an iceberg, with the tip being what we can see. The internal structure of the clitoris is about as big as the penis and goes deep within the body.
  • The clitoris has 2-3 times the nerve endings of the penis. The clitoris is the anatomical equivalent of the penis. We know that it would be inconceivable to have a sexual experience for men without using the penis, so let us treat the clitoris in the same way and be sure to include it as an essential part of your lovemaking in every sexual encounter.
  • As a visual artist she is also highlighting the shape of the anatomy of the clitoris which is kind of awesome to see, it’s like a wishbone but with bonus parts. The Huffington post made a video where they stopped people on the street to try and identify the penis’s and clitoral anatomy and everyone correctly identified the penis, and only one person out of many was able to identify the clitoris.

Check out the resources below and then have conversations with people in your life about the clitoris, and help make the world a more cliterate place!

Clitoris : What It Is & How To Stimulate It

Clitoris DiagramThe clitoris is a central part of the female sexual system. It is part of the vulva, and the most sensitive part of the female body.  It is found at the top of the vulva, in between the labia.

The size and shape of the clitoris ranges widely from woman to woman, and the appearance often changes over the course of arousal and orgasm.

The clitoris contains erectile tissue that allows it to swell and extend during arousal. Some women will notice dramatic changes, others will have more subtle clitoral erections.

Many people consider the clitoris to be a small external structure, but what is visible is just the tip of the iceberg. The clitoral roots extend back into the body and down through the labia, connecting sensations throughout the region. One of the reasons internal stimulation feels good is because you are stimulating the internal roots of the clitoris!

The clitoris, just like the penis, has both a shaft and a head. You can stimulate the shaft of the clitoris as a warm up to more direct touch of the clitoral head.

Stimulate The Clitoris For Female Orgasm

erogenousClitoral stimulation is essential for female orgasm. Most women do not experience orgasm from penetration alone – they need clitoral stimulation to build up arousal and experience climax. Many women prefer the clitoris to be stimulated from the side or through the clitoral hood. Warm her up slowly to avoid overstimulating the highly sensitive clitoris. Master the skills of giving women pleasure with our Foreplay Mastery Course, which includes a stroke-by-stroke guide to touching women with skills and confidence.

The head of the clitoris has about 10,000 nerve endings – more than any other part of either the male or female body. It is considered the only part of human anatomy designed exclusively for pleasure. The clitoris is the anatomical homologue (match) to the penis. Remember this when considering the importance of the clitoris to female sexual pleasure!

How To: Clitoral Stimulation

If you want to be a great lover and be able to pleasure women, you need to learn how to master clitoral stimulation. For sexual satisfaction and fulfillment, the clitoris is the most important square inch of flesh on the female body. Of course, paying attention to the full body is important – and learning how to touch and pleasure every part of your lover’s body is an essential skill in becoming a better lover. But when it comes to female arousal and orgasm, the clitoris is the key.

The clitoris has about 8,000 nerve endings – the densest concentration of nerve endings anywhere on the male or female body. The external structure of the clitoris is the most sensitive, but the clitoral body extends deep into the body, and can be stimulated internally.

Clitoral Stimulation is Essential for Female Pleasure!

Clitoral StimulationFor the vast majority of women, clitoral stimulation is essential for becoming highly aroused and reaching orgasm. Some women love the addition of vaginal penetration or anal play (or both!) – but almost all women need their clitoris to be a key component in sexual stimulation. To become a more confident lover and gain mastery over the female orgasm, clitoral stimulation techniques are top priority.

But don’t get stuck with just one clitoral stimulation method – just because it worked on your last lover doesn’t mean every woman will respond! It is far better to be confident with many different ways of stimulating the clitoris, so you can mix it up, surprise your lover with new sensations and stimulate more nerve endings for maximum pleasure.  Learning a wide range of clitoral stimulation techniques will allow you to pleasure every woman, every time.

We know that clitoral pleasure is essential for female sexual fulfillment – so our guide makes the clitoris a priority, in addition to showing ways of pleasuring the entire external vulva as well as internal stimulation techniques.

Let us show you how to master clitoral stimulation techniques, g-spot stimulation and much more. Gain the skills and confidence you need to surprise your lover with a wide range of sensations and powerful orgasms.
