A vulva with anatomical description.
The clitoris is part of the genital anatomy of individuals assigned female at birth. It is an erectile structure, and it is homologous to the penis. That means it develops from the same structures in the embryo and has many similar properties. Like the penis, the clitoris is an erectile organ, although the erectile parts of the clitoris are located internally and are not visible to the eye. The clitoris has no function other than to serve as a site of erotic sensation. The anatomy of the clitoris is often described inadequately, and inaccurately, by many textbooks. The deep structures of the organ have historically been overlooked.

The clitoris is a small projection of erectile tissue in the vulva of the female reproductive system. It contains thousands of nerve endings that make it an extremely sensitive organ. Touch stimulation of the nerve endings in the clitoris produces sensations of sexual pleasure. The clitoris is structurally and functionally homologous to the penis of the male reproductive system, except that the clitoris does not contain the urethra and plays no role in urination.
Later, when asked by Hera and Zeus to settle an argument over which sex has the most pleasure in intercourse Hera thought men; Zeus said women , Tiresias replied, Women. Definitely women. For this impertinence, Hera struck him blind. Tiresias may have been just poking some fun at the almighty gods.
