The Klitoris (technical term Clitoris, latinisiert from old-Greek , again Greek - "small hill ") or the Kitzler one calls a cylindrical organ of the woman and all other female mammals formed by the swelling body fabric. Evolutionary Klitoris and the Penis come out from the same plants.


The Kitzler consists of two, at the seat leg cutout (Arcus ischiadicus) fastened swelling body thighs (Crura clitoridis, Singular Crus clitoridis), which unite to the shank (corpus clitoridis). The free end is extended to the acorn (Glans clitoridis). The Kitzler possesses up to approx. 8000 nerves. The Klitorisvorhaut protects the sensitive Klitoris.

Outwardly visibly are only the shank and the highly sensitive acorn, which are as part of the Vulva because of the front envelope fold of the small Schamlippen. Together they cover only one tenth of the total volume of the Klitoris.


The Kitzler is strongly with nerve endings equipped and therefore particularly touch-sensitive and sensitive to sexual attractions. By Stimulation of the Klitoris most women arrive at the Orgasmus. Many investigations, e.g. of Kinsey, point out that a considerable portion of the women can come to the Orgasmus only if the Klitoris (along) is stimulated.

In the framework the mode to define highly sensitive erogene zones as "super Orgasmus points "was called the Kitzler by the British zoologist and behavior researcher the moon Morris also "C-point ".


The sensitivity of the Klitoris for direct stimulation is individually very different. Some women are so sensitive that her a direct stimulation only after longer play or also not at all borne. Since the Klitoris, as described above, with which is closely connected to surrounding fabrics, different indirect Stimulationsformen is usual practice.

In very rare cases one can be attributed as too small experienced sensitivity of the Klitoris to a too large Klitorisvorhaut. In extreme cases then a distance or a shortening of this foreskin would be conceivable. In contrast to this a comparable phenomenon can be attributed far more frequently to unawareness over anatomy or the existence of shame borders, which prevent a certain Hair man, Claudia (2005): "Down 'rum"…" - The shame is not past.

Development with the embryo

Whether a Penis with acorn or a Kitzler forms is regulated, over the payment by Testosteron. If this is disturbed, women can develop a penisartige despite the gene set of XX, where with normal development the Klitoris sits. This disturbance is very rare.

With a too large Klitoris today also surgical reductions are accomplished. These are disputed - like almost all surgical changes of the body picture -, since the size of a "normal" Klitoris is not biologically defined dependent on social normative influences and. In cases of or if the woman concerned suffers under their disturbing large Klitoris can a surgical correction be attached nevertheless.
