Your Clitoris Is the Size of a 'Medium Zucchini,' and Other Vagina Facts You Didn't Know

Here’s a biology pop quiz question. What is the average size of a clitoris in a human female?

A. the size of a chickpea

B. the size of a mini pickle

C. the size of a medium zucchini.

Unless you’ve been paying particularly close attention to the gynecological literature, you’re probably not going to say C. And yet that is the correct answer. Sure, the externally visible part of the clitoris is puny, but that is literally the tip of an iceberg that extends deep beneath the pubis, five inches down either wall of the vagina, consists of six separate parts, and carries more nerve endings than the [...]


The World's First "Vadge Sommelier"?

"Before I boarded the bus, I made sure to take off my lanyard, which featured the words 'AGENT OF ORGASM' above a picture of my face."

-Gawker's Nitasha Tiku spent three days at OMXperience, a three-day conference in San Francisco this past August intended to "kick off the industry of orgasm" via orgasmic meditation, or "OM." (Some NSFW video guidance here, if you're interested.) Tiku, pre-initiation, frames the practice as a uniquely tech-bubble creation ("Everyone is interested in doing fun things with their bodies. But the impulse to systematize, replicate, package, sell, and build an ideology around it is uniquely Silicon Valley"); Nicole Daedone, the 46-year-old [...]


Yours Is Like a Flower or a Pie or Something

Is a lady's orgasm different from a dude's orgasm? PROBABLY?

We can tell you right now: you ain't never gonna really find out, and that seems like a shame.


Is That a Cluster of Grapes in Your Pocket or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

"Inspecting the six distinct layers of tissue that make up a woman's vaginal wall, Ostrzenski said, he uncovered small, grape-like clusters of erectile tissue housed in a sac less than 1 centimeter across — "a deep, deep structure" nestled between the vaginal wall's fifth layer, the endopelvic fascia, and its sixth, the dorsal perineal membrane." —The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study yesterday in which Dr. Adam Ostrzenski claims he found the G-spot in a cadaver in Poland. Others are like, "Not so fast, buddy!" And other others are like, "Don't care what you call it as long as it gets the job done."


When Harry Met Sally's Fake Orgasm, En Masse

Is it too early for this? Maybe. Probably. "This" is a video of members of Improv Everywhere surprising New York's Katz's Deli with a mass recreation of Meg Ryan's famous fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally, so press play only when you're ready for that. (NSFW, obv.)


How Many Words Could You Read Aloud While Climaxing?

"In his latest project, Hysterical Literature, photographer Clayton Cubitt takes a beautiful woman, places her at a table in front of a black backdrop and gets her to read from her favorite book while an unseen accomplice below the table attempts to bring the woman to orgasm with a vibrator." NSFW! Stoya, girl. [Criminal Wisdom]


Vestigial Witchcraft?

… Homo Mysterious: Evolutionary Puzzles of Human Nature, is a catalogue of the many unresolved riddles of our history. A surprising number of these mysteries concern female sexuality. The male orgasm, for example, serves a rather obvious seed-sowing function — but what is the point of its female equivalent?

For the Financial Times, Steven Cave considers three recent books on human evolution.


I Am So Sorry You Probably Didn't Have An Orgasm That Time We Hooked Up

Oh no! I read this article on the New York Times about how you didn’t have an orgasm when we hooked up. That sucks! I’m so sorry. I had no idea. I know I shot out of your apartment like a superball out of a tailpipe. But I was pretty sure I had pleased the pants right off of you. I mean, your pants were still on. But still. This is worse than that time I crapped my pants at Lollapalooza. I am so embarrassed!

This is all according to the New York Times, of course, and who knows more about sex than them? According to the Times, women are [...]


Shop Talk

Can we talk about vibrators again? It's time, right? There must be a half-life on women's websites for when certain topics can come up after the last time they came up? Maybe? Oh my god, the internet. I'm going to throw my computer away. But first I'm going to use my vibrator a bit. And then again. And again. Anyway, what do you use?

I use JimmyJane vibrators. Plural! But not because I'm any kind of expert, and I know other people aren't always the hugest fans, but I have one that's pretty good (and expensive), and then I got this little pocket/travel sized one, somewhat accidentally, that I [...]


He Also Recommends Using a Kitchen Timer

Apropos of nothing, if anyone picked up Tim Ferriss' diet book out of interest in the chapter titled "The Fifteen Minute Orgasm," it is not about how to have an orgasm that will last for fifteen minutes. It is about how to achieve an orgasm in fifteen minutes, which may or may not be of less interest to you.

Please enjoy your day.
