The outer lips (labia majora) are two folds of skin with pubic hair on their surface. In never pregnant women, the folds meet in the middle. In others, they can be slightly open, more relaxed. The skin can be dark, or pink. The outer lips are plump with fat tissue. These soft, squashy pillows act as cushions during the act of love. They protect the delicate inner structures, and keep the vulva moist. They react to temperature; the lips pucker and shrivel when cold, rather like the scrotum in men.
The inner lips (labia minora) are smaller and thinner, and en closed by the outer lips. Usually, one lip is slightly larger than the other. In some cases, both lips can be large enough to protrude through the outer folds. There is no health significance in either kind, though there may be some erotic value in lips which protrude. Their color ranges from light pink to brownish black, and their texture can be smooth or wrinkled.
The inner lips join together to form the hood of the clitoris. Like the outer lips, they are rich in sebaceous glands, apocrine sweat glands, blood vessels, and nerve receptors. Both outer and inner lips contain tissue which swells up at sexual arousal.
The word clitoris is from Greek for a "key," and a splendidly apt name it turns out to be. Because the clitoris is the key to unlock the door of sexual arousal. There are more nerve receptors here than any other part of the body. Combined with a plentiful blood supply, they enable the clitoris to become erect.
The clitoris is the equivalent of the male penis, though in miniature. The penis is made of a long root a shaft and the glans. The clitoris has two long roots, a shaft which can feel rubbery, and a glans about the size of a pea which looks like a pink fleshy knob.
Like the penis, the shaft is made of two spongy tubes which can erect. Running along the top of the shaft is the main vein, which drains blood away from the organ. When engorged with blood, the shaft and glans erect and almost double in size. The rounded glans is the most exquisitely sensitive part of the clitoris.
Again like the penis, the sensitive glans is protected from normal everyday friction by a foreskin (prepuce). This is a small hood which fits snugly over the glans. Smegma, a cheesy cream, is made under the foreskin. It keeps the glans comfortably oiled in times of high friction, i.e., love making. Smegma can cause itching or inflammation if it is not removed by daily washing.
In male circumcision, the foreskin is pulled back from the glans and cut off. This is a common, and usually unnecessary, surgical procedure in affluent industrialized societies. Female circumcision is not a Western custom. It can involve the removal not only of the foreskin but the inner labia too. With growing awareness of circumcision as mutilation, many parents now protect their babies boys from these procedures.
According to the well known sexologists, Masters and Johnson, "The clitoris is a unique organ in the total of human anatomy. Its express purpose is to serve as a receptor and transformer of sensual stimuli. Thus, the human female has an organ system which is totally limited in physiologic function to initiating or elevating levels of sexual tension. No such organ exists within the anatomic structure of the human male."
