The clitoris is NOT just for pleasure: stimulating the sexual organ & # 39; causes changes in the body making it easier for the sperm to get into the egg & # 39;

  • Stimulating it & # 39; causes changes so that the conditions are optimal for conception & # 39;
  • Increases blood flow and changes the position of the cervix, according to the British expert
  • Review, published in Clinical Anatomy, flies in the face of the wealth of previous studies

It was thought that it was the only human organ, designed purely for pleasure.

But the clitoris can actually play an important role in reproduction, according to a leading scientist.

Stimulating the sexual organ causes changes that make the conditions in the body optimal for getting pregnant, it is claimed.

These would include increased vaginal blood flow and lubrication, making sex more pleasant and helping the sperm to move to the egg.

It can also cause an increase in oxygen and temperature in the female reproductive system, keeping the sperm healthy on their journey.

But most importantly, according to the assessment, stimulating the clitoris causes a change in the position of the cervix, the opening to the uterus where sperm is deposited.

The cervix is ​​a small channel at the top of the vagina. During sexual arousal, the vagina will become longer, pulling the cervix up and out of the way.

The change prevents sperm from traveling into the womb too quickly, according to Dr. Roy Levin, an expert in female excitement at Sheffield University.

WHAT IS THE CLITORIS AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

Hidden just inside the entrance of the vagina is the clitoris – the female equivalent of the penis.

It was thought that it was the only human organ, designed purely for pleasure.

Just like the penis, the clitoris is a mass of nerves, muscles and blood vessels.

When it is raised, the clitoris fills itself with blood and becomes upright.

During stimulation, the tip withdraws from the cap and comes out of the foreskin. Stimulating the clitoris results in an orgasm.

A woman's orgasm is characterized by rhythmic muscle contractions, immediately followed by relaxation.

The first contractions can arrive at intervals of less than a second and become further apart as the orgasm continues.

A mild orgasm can have three to five contractions, while an intense orgasm can have ten to fifteen.

This gives sperm time to be mobile and activated to fertilize the egg, the doctor wrote in the review of evidence published in the magazine Clinical anatomy.

After sperm is deposited, the activation of their tail is suppressed until they are at a relatively short distance from the egg.

This gives the sperm an increased chance of reaching the egg before it depletes its energy supplies.

Dr. Levin said: & # 39; The often-repeated mantra, which is the only function of clitoris to induce sexual pleasure, is now obsolete.

& # 39; The concept changes an important sexual belief and the physiological evidence is now clear. & # 39;

His review, which looked at 15 studies from 1966 to 2017, is at odds with a wealth of research that concluded that the clitoris function was purely for pleasure.

The organ is a mass of nerves, muscles and blood vessels that fills with blood and becomes straight when it is raised.

During stimulation, the tip withdraws from the cap and the clitoris becomes enlarged and firm.

It was previously thought that it had an indirect function in reproduction because it encourages sex with the promise of pleasure.

Dr. Levin also used his review to blow up female genital mutilation – a barbaric practice that removes the clitoris to discourage sex.

He said it makes it much harder for women to conceive, in addition to the unbearable pain and the long-term mental health effects that accompany it.

The procedure is usually done with a knife or razor and sometimes without anesthesia.
