I'm uncomfortable with the size of my clitoris. It's not so much the size of it, as much as how much skin (the hood?) is over it. It looks really big and disgusting. All the time. I don't stare at it but if I happen to glance down in the shower or changing clothes, I notice it.

Is a part of the actual clitoris supposed to stick out from under the skin? B/c mine doesn't do that. How large is the "norm"? Does anybody else have this problem? Has anybody ever said anything about it to you?

Somebody said something about it to me and then they said that they were joking so I really don't know if they were or not and I didn't want to press the issue to find out.

I am a nurse and have seen many naked bodies. One thing I can tell you is that there is no normal size. Some women have a clitoris that is "out there" and easy to see and other have a "hidden" clitoris that is more tucked away. and would be considered on You can not change this so embrace it. Your s/o will have no problem finding the correct spot to bring you to an orgasm.

There are some people that find a large clitoris so attractive that they use a vacuum to cause swelling to their clitoris and make it look larger.

The hood generally retracts with arousal. You should stimulate your clitoris and see if the hood doesn't seem to pull back a bit. The clitoris engorges with blood during arousal and will enlargen. It is at this time the hood will recede a bit.

I am fifteen years old and I was so terrified of this. That's how I ended up on this site. My boyfriend and I are sexually active and have sex regularly. I didn't know what to do about it, he's never said anything about it but all of my friends looked normal. I didn't know what was wrong with me. Every single one of the pornos I've seen the girl has the perfect tiny clit and I have been SO self-conscious about. I don't like it at all but he says he likes it and he says it's hot regardless of what I say so I guess it just depends on the guy.

"During puberty a girl's genitals can, and often times do, undergo a major transformation. Even before noticeable breast development becomes apparent, the tissues of the vulva start responding to increased hormonal levels. During puberty a girl's inner and outer labia, hood, clitoris, and hymen increase in size, often times significantly. Not only may the size of a girl's genitals change, but also their shape, color, and texture. Following puberty a girl's genitals may look nothing like they did during childhood. During adolescence the rose bud of youth often blossoms into the colorful flower of adulthood." there's nothing we

Buzzie, The chance are much better that the guy will go "Wow, that is great". A "outie" clitoris is nothing to be ashamed or self conscious about, just like an "innie" or small almost invisible clitoris is not.

Masturbation also does not change the shape or size of your genitals, just like eating does not change your mouth an (eww) picking your nose does not change the shape of your nose.

Look at the noses or ears on people around you. You will see that it is natural to have all shapes and sizes. It is no use to be self conscious about it. You just have to make the best of everything you have and learn to have self confidence.

Remember to regularly wash around your clitoris and under its hood with normal clean water to get rid of the skin oil and dead skin cells that can form what is called smegma - a creamy white substance.

Best of luck!

If you have a big clitoris, my one piece of advice is
DON'T PIERCE IT.

Glory in your excessive ability to achieve orgasm, and don't EVER put a hole in it, as that will reduce your sensitivity by at least 4/5ths.
(This means that if you pierce your clit, you will only feel 1/5th of the sensation you felt BEFORE you pierced it, after the first year.)

If this sounds like the bomb, go for it. It's your clit. But I'm here to tell you, ladies, if I had it to do over, I would never do it again

You have to have a scan for ovarian cysts (PCOS) and your testosterone levels.

I can almost guarantee you that your partner will be crazy about you and your body. Men are strange that way. What you find unattractive and odd, they find extremely arousing and sexy.

Your clitoris is the center point of your sexual stimulation and orgasm. It is a massive organ that goes deep into your body where you cannot even see it. When you get aroused, it will fill with blood and become erect, just like a man's penis.

So stop being so sensitive about how you look. Rather enjoy the attention from your partner and the incredible pleasure your clitoris brings you.

Take care!

Huge Clitoris
Wow! You sound just like me. I have a huge clitoris too and it sticks out of the lips of my vagina. It is so huge that I actually fold and tuck it between the lips to kind of hide it.Yes, it gets even bigger somewhat engorged when it is stimulated. The good thing about it is I get multiple orgasms. I have even wondered if they have clit reduction surgery because of the size. You are not alone, I fully understand your feeling. Hopefully you will find someone who loves and embraces a huge clitoris.

Don't Fret
Communication is the key, just ask him. My sexual partner enjoys oral sex and does not have a problem with it at all matter of fact that is the first place he goes to when we have sex. I use to be self-conscious about it, but now I don't even pay attention to it anymore.

nurse There is no such thing as "a normal size" however is it bothers you to the point of non-acceptance then I wouldd suggest you see a cosmetic surgeon speicalizing in vagainal rejuvination or labiaplasty. I am uncertain what the procedures is for the clitorial hood but I am sure it can be "changed". Notice that I did not call it fixed as it normal as is. Good Luck.

Surgery??
I don't recommend surgery for the clitoris. The clitoris is full of nerve endings and surgery could possible lead to a lot of scar tissue and affect sexual pleasure.

From personal experience I can say that guys seem to love it. My clitoris is large and the few men that I have been with always loved it. About 6 years ago I got my hood pierced and I actually had the piercer ask if he could pierce my clitoris instead because he said it was perfect and would look great. I completely understand the uncomfortable and self-conscious feeling about it being larger but guys really do like it. =)

ladies, please, please do not feel insecure or self conscious about the size of your clitoris. You do realize that for most men your clitoris is the centre point of their attention? The bigger the better! Honestly, men absolutely love the sight of a large errect clitoris and yes, even if it looks like a small penis. It's a massive turn on. So treasure it, love it and be happy that nature has given you this gift.

I guess mine was always just regular size. I don't know. Didn't look at it much. My husband told me if was beautiful many times.
I got divorced, then noticed it was bigger, but I was also having oral sex alot with my partner. He was a lot younger than I was, but was a good learner. Then after he and I broke up, I noticed that my clit had gotten smaller again. Dated another older man and was told again, that it was beautiful. I know this sounds crazy, but it's true.
Now, I haven't dated in many yrs and mine is quite small gain, with full lips that cover it.
I also have very big color around my nipples. I was embarrassed about this, but looked at a playboy one day and the the looking lady in there had very big ones. NEVER be embarrassed about anything with your bodies ladies, unless you know there is some deformity. Then seek help.
Be proud of what you have. Just like many things, no two are the same.Smile

You can go to Google.com and type in Clitoris in the Search Box. When the websites come up, look under the search box. There will be options that say "Web," "Images," etc. Click images and you'll see pictures. If you click on them, you'll see larger examples. One of them is sure to show a picture that will illustrate to your understanding.

Some women have an almost invisible clitoris -- others have a clitoris as big as their thumb (2" or even 2.5". Most males reckon that the bigger a clitoris is, the better.

Better for what? The clitoris contains about 8,000 nerve endings, regardless of the size.

When a woman's clitoris enlarge after puberty, she will have to see a doctor to make sure her androgen levels are ok and she does not have PCOS.

Other than that, it is what it is. The clitoris is not made for looking at. It has only one role, sexual pleasure. During sex it cannot even be seen most of the time. So stop obsessing about the size of the clitoris. Nothing can be done about it, small or large. And nothing needs to be done about it, small or large. And don't be shy or ashamed of it. Just like the size and shape of your nose, ears, hair, feet, fingers, you have no control over it.

Learn to be self-confident, and how to pleasure yourself and your partner. Worrying about this will cause you issues where there should be no issues.

Didn't you ask this same question under a different user name 8 months before this question? Are you still fretting over the same thing? Are you hoping the answers that it is normal change? Do you want to be considered a freak? I dated a woman with a huge clit. Not only does she consider normai, she loves the way its prominence increases her pleasure during intercourse and excites her as it rubs against her clothes. She says she can masturbate at her desk at work or on the train just by rubbing her hips slightly so her clit rubs her clothes. When she wears a bikini, it makes a bump in the bottom of her suit. She is as proud of her big clit as any man might be of a big penis. I have never met a man doesn't like big clits or the skin surrounding them. The more to stimulate orally. If it makes you feel any better, I asked my ex gf and she consented to taking a clinical picture if you want to feel better. Email me if you would like a copy. In the meantime, the clitoral hood and the labia are also very different among woman. Some women have large foreskins and some have a clit that always peeks out. Some have immense inner labia that hand out from the outer labia. Some have small inner lips and present a smooth outer appearance. It's all normal, and if any man likes one better than the other it strictly a matter of taste. Most men like best whatever the woman love looks like.
