Until 2009, the human clitoris was an absolute mystery







The scientific name for the external “little button” or “bulb” [of the clitoris] is glans.  Not to be confused with glands, glans simply refers to a small circular mass.  This little structure contains  approximately 8,000 sensory nerve fibers; more than anywhere else in  the human body and nearly twice the amount found on the head of a penis…  The fact is, though, that most of the clitoris is subterranean,  consisting of two corpora cavernosa (corpus cavernosum when referring to  the structure as a whole), two crura (crus when referring to the  structure as a whole), and the clitoral vestibules or bulbs.







The glans is connected to the body or shaft of the internal clitoris,  which is made up of two corpora cavernosa.  When erect, the corpora  cavernosa encompass the vagina on either side, as if they were wrapping  around it giving it a big hug!







The corpus cavernosum also extends further, bifurcating again to form  the two crura.  These two legs extend up to 9cm, pointing toward the  thighs when at rest, and stretching back toward the spine when erect.
