How to stimulate your clit

It’s no secret that for people with a vagina, clitoral stimulation can help improve masturbation and sex life in general. But exactly how do you stimulate your clit? Here, we'll look at exactly what the clit is, where to find it and how to stimulate it via solo play or coupled sex.

More orgasms? Oh YES!

The clitoris is one of the most sensitive parts of the female body, and pleasure is its sole purpose. Contrary to what many porn videos would have us believe, penetration alone usually won’t result in orgasm for vagina owners – and that’s where clitoral stimulation comes in. Once stimulated, the clitoris can cause female ejaculation and help achieve strong vaginal orgasms.

Pleasure-seekers: here’s where to look

The button-like clitoris rests under the clitoral hood, where the two sides of the inner labia connect. Most clitorises are hooded to some extent, some more than others – these are sometimes called ‘hidden’ or ‘embedded’ clitorises.

If you’re not sure where it is, you could always hold up a mirror to your vagina to see what's going on down under. To orient yourself, the clitoris should be at 12 o'clock, and your vaginal opening will be at 6 o'clock. If you still can’t see it, stimulating your clit should cause it to swell, making it more noticeable.

Now for the good bit… how to stimulate your own clit

It’s generally agreed that the best way to stimulate your clit is to start slowly and sensually, and build the pressure and sensations gradually. The average vagina owner needs 15-20 minutes to become aroused, so jumping to intense action right away probably isn’t going to do the trick.

As with anything related to sex, prioritizing foreplay first will enhance the experience. This is especially true when it comes to clitoral stimulation as it expands when aroused, making it easier to find and more pleasurable to play with.

Do whatever you need to do to get in the mood – whether that’s teasing or paying special attention to non-genital areas such as lips, boobs or butt or firing up your favorite porn.

After some time, you can work your hands down to the vagina, slowly rubbing and grinding in whatever way feels good for you.

When you feel there’s enough sexual tension, slowly slide your fingers up and down, and in and out of the vulva, hitting the G-spot, and then going for the clitoris. Spot stimulation on the clitoris is key, so find a rhythm you enjoy and keep it going until you reach orgasm!

How to stimulate your clit during sex

Once you understand the magic of clit stimulation and how to do it, you owe it to yourself to bring it into your sex life! Here are some sex positions that hit juuuust the right spot…

  • Table top: Have your partner enter you while you’re sitting or lying at the edge of a table, counter or maybe even your bed. Both of you will have easy access to stimulate your clit using hands or a toy during strokes.

    Also, the clitoris can be gently pushed down to receive stimulation during the stroking motion.

  • Spooning: Both of you lie on your sides, facing the same direction. You bring your knees up slightly while your partner slides up and enters you from behind in the spooning position.

    Either partner can provide stimulation to the clitoris while thrusting by simply wrapping their arms toward the front.

  • Face-off: Your partner sits on a chair or the edge of the bed. You face them, straddling their lap. In this romantic position, you can either give yourself a hand or close the distance between your two bodies to go hands-free. Rub yourself against them to get the stimulation you need.

Remember, what constitutes great sex is different for everyone and the important thing is enjoying getting to know yourself better. Don’t be afraid to play around and revel in the sexual exploration – it’s half the fun! Ready to get started? Treat yourself to Cliona.
