Scientific information about the clitoris
I am a 20-year-old girl. I will be getting married this year. I wish to get some scientific information about the ‘clitoris’. Where exactly it is located, how does it appear and what is it’s function?
Clitoris is a small, pea-like structure present at the top of the inner lips (Labia Minora) of the vagina, enfolded by the outer lips (Labia Majora). It is an erectile hooded organ at the upper joining of the labia minora. You may have to separate outer lips of vagina to be able to see it. Like the male glans penis, the clitoris is richly supplied by highly sensitive nerve receptors. Very often the clitoris gets rubbed during intercourse. The clitoris is the only anatomical organ in women whose sole function is providing sexual pleasure.
Sense of self-worth
I am 20 yrs old and my girlfriend is 25 yrs old. Both of us love each other. I want to marry her but she refused because she loves and respects her elder brother who is opposing our relationship for no reason. I am not blaming my girlfriend, as I know her nature. But my problem is that I have lost my interest in everything, lost my appetite and I cannot concentrate on my studies. Please help me come out of this dilemma.
What you are feeling is not abnormal. It is a human need to love and be loved. There is also another human need and that is to feel a sense of worthiness about oneself. You say you are restless. That means you are only hung up on the fulfillment of the first need ~ namely to love and be loved.
For a sense of worthiness you need to put your energy in creative pursuits, activities and hobbies that increase your self-worth. This will make you feel good about yourself, take care of your restlessness and give you a chance to interact with people. While you are busy feeling good, the right person for you will come into your life. Till then, don’t worry, be happy. If you continue to feel restless even after this, you would need to have a few sessions with a good personal counsellor.
