The clitoris is the one and only female sex organ

To state the obvious: men have no organ equivalent to the vagina.[i]

Male orgasm rewards men for the reproductive act of ejaculation but there is no biological justification for female orgasm (by any means).

So it is much more likely that women’s orgasmic ability arises from the anatomy that women have evolved in common with men than that it arises from the anatomy that they have evolved independently of men.

The female external genitalia (clitoris and labia) are anatomically equivalent to the male (penis and testicles). They are similarly positioned. The clitoris can be clearly identified as the organ that is equivalent to the penis because both organs develop from identical structures in the embryo.

A woman’s sex organ (clitoris) is separate from her internal reproductive anatomy (ovaries, uterus and vagina). A man’s sex organ (penis) is also separate from his internal reproductive anatomy (testes and glands).

The sex organ is the only organ that triggers an orgasmic response. Unlike the penis, the clitoris has no other function apart from that of being a sex organ. The clitoris is the only female erectile organ. Increased blood flow (in older women) causes the internal clitoral organ to swell.

Stimulation that leads to orgasm involves a technique that massages the erectile organ (specifically the blood flow within it). Ideally we control our own stimulation because only we know the state of our own mind and how we can best synchronise genital stimulation to optimise the mental impact of orgasm (satisfaction obtained from sexual release).

The defining characteristic of a sex organ is that it is capable of producing the response of orgasm. When stimulated, in conjunction with a mental focus on erotic stimuli, the organ can give rise to muscle contractions in the lower pelvic area and highly pleasurable sensations in the brain.

If someone is capable of orgasm, then they must also be able to achieve it by themselves. The penis and clitoris are easily reached by the hands so that stimulation is possible regardless of whether a partner is available.

Even today the clitoris is often omitted from any description of women’s sexual anatomy. The clitoris, as a remnant of what becomes the penis in a man, has masculine connotations. At most it is considered a redundant aspect of women’s anatomy, which for many women it very evidently is.

[i] The vagina … is not matched by any functioning structure in the male, but it is of minimum in contributing to the erotic responses of the female. It may even contribute more to the sexual arousal of the male than it does to the arousal of the female. (p592 Kinsey 1953)
