Q&A: Sensitive Clit

Dear Sh!

My clitoris is so sensitive it cannot be directly touched, to the annoyance of my lover!

I can have vaginal orgasms but cannot masturbate in the clitoral area as it feels uncomfortable... Help!

What can I do or use to stimulate my clitoris or make it less sensitive?

 

Hi there,

Many women, no matter how sensitive they are, do not like direct stimulation on the tip of the clit, as it's often uncomfortable.

Remember the clitoral glans (the external nub at the top of your inner vaginal lips) has about the same number of nerve endings as the penis, but all enclosed in a much smaller area, so it's no wonder it's so sensitive.

This is also why men and women respond to very different kinds of touch.

As you seem specially sensitive, ask your partner to go very slowly and sensually around your clitoris.

Who says they actually have to touch it?

The hair-standing-up-on-the-back-of-the-neck sensation you can get from the anticipation of something can be far more enticing than the actual sensation.

Encourage your lover to gently ascend from an erotic stroking of feet, calves, thighs, inner thighs...to kissing your lips (labia) and blowing on your clit.

Men often approach the clitoris as an 'easy jackpot' and pretty play-safe "she's bound to get turned on if I rub on this!" sort of spot,

But for many women the "sweet spots" are the sides of the clitoris rather than directly on it.

Whatever areas of your clitoris is "out of bounds", instead of this being a negative thing, your lover still has the full run of the rest of your body to experiment with.

As for stimulating yourself - the labia and your whole genital region (both inside and externally) is "joined-up" - if your clitoris is too sensitive for direct stimulation, try using a vibrator around your lips - you will see just how engorged and rosy they become without any direct clitoral action.

We hope this helps and if you'd like any more advice, please do get in touch.

Best Wishes

Team Sh!
