where is the clitoris

The clitoris is the pleasure center of the vulva. It doesn’t have a central role in reproduction like the penis or vagina — it’s pretty much just there to make you feel good! 

The clitoris is right under the point where the inner labia meet and form a little hood (known as the clitoral hood, in fact). It’s on top of (or in front of, depending on which angle you’re at) the vagina and the urethra (the hole you pee out of). What you’re seeing under that clitoral hood is actually just the tip of the clitoris. Fun fact about the clitoris: the rest of its spongy shaft divides into two “legs” that reach more than five inches inside your body!
