  fast facts about the clitoris
The clitoris (or "clit") is the most sensitive part of the female genitals, and the only organ in the body that exists solely for sexual pleasure.
Like the penis, the clitoris consists of a head (glans) and a body (shaft), and both organs are made of tissue that swells during sexual arousal.

  Clitoris
The clitoris, which is often referred to by its nickname 'the clit," is, arguably, one of the most exciting and most excitable parts of the female body.
The visible parts of the clitoris are the glands (or head), the shaft, and the hood (which covers the glands and the shaft.) When you are sexually aroused, the clitoris swells slightly, the hood pulls back, and the glands, which is the most sensitive part of the clitoris, becomes hard.
For most women, their clitoris and vulva look and work fine just the way they are, and they wouldn't dream of letting a doctor near them with a scalpel, but others have a strong desire for something different, or better.
