Does a woman's clitoris move at all when she's having a clitoral orgasm? I noticed that today mine moved like it was opening and closing when I was getting off. I have never noticed that before. Is that normal?

A reader, anonymous, writes (16 January 2010):

I know it's been a while since you posted. But, my clitoris does indeed move during an orgasm. When I'm not sexaully aroused it always sticks out from under the clitoral hood, looking like a small penis. On me it is quite visible. But after having an orgasm, it's will under the clitoral hood toward the front of my pelvis. All I see is a pretty noticable bump underneath the skin of the hood. Once the orgasm has worn off my clitoris comes out from under the hood again being quite visible until next time.

But, a woman has to be careful while having sex or masturbating, because I think she can cause damage to the nerves. Think I was too rough during masturbation this last time, because my clitoris hasn't come out from under the hood for several days now, keeping me in a state of sexual excitement and it is very uncomfortable.

But, I don't think you have anything to worry about as long as you don't get rough with you clitoris. And I hope my clitoris comes out from under the hood.

DoubleM agony auntAs somewhat indicated by "LazyGuy," a healthy woman's clitoris frequently (and more or less) plays a game of hide and seek during arousal, although it varies greatly in size and shape from woman to woman. More accurately, when highly aroused, a woman's clitoris often recedes just prior to orgasm, then may enlarge and extend at the moment of climax. At some point, it becomes engorged with hot blood, which also stiffens a penis. It is the female sexual and anatomical organ that correlates to a man's penis, and in fact much resembles a penis in a mostly hidden structure. It is shaped much like a shaft, but is usually mostly retracted into the woman's mons pubis. It's phallic shape is not very obvious.

The tip of the clitoris, often called a "bud," is analogous to the tip of a penis, both containing the vast majority of the ultra sensitive nerves that produce orgasm when properly stimulated along with natural heterosexual attraction. Much like a penis, primarily the tip, a clitoris is highly prone to throb, swell or enlarge, quiver, vibrate and experience other sensations before and during climax. But you are more likely feeling contractions of your vagina, which can provide both partners a more intense feeling during orgasm, although many folks are unaware of what's happening. In a sense, the vagina rapidly and repeatedly contracts several times to help facilitate reception of sperm (kind of like sucking). So yes, a feeling of opening and closing is possible, and now you know what is going on.

Yes, this is normal. It is likely that it is just pulsing due to blood flow (this may be noticeable in the labia etc as well).

It is normal, in fact, in fact, it is even better than normal at the moment because you just had an orgasm!

Here's to many more I'm sure.

LazyGuy agony auntOpening and closing?

Yes, the clitoris is famous for playing hide and seek during orgasm, if you were a bit older you might remember countless articles/stories about finding the clitoris.

For some odd reason, when women get very excitited the clitoris seems to retract under the hood.

Perhaps you meant this?
