Project Cliteracy

Recently, it was brought to my attention that the first ever International Clitoral Awareness Week took place from May 6-12. As it’s also National Masturbation Month, we figured it’s never too late to celebrate the clit. So, today, in honor of the clitoris, a few friends and myself put together a #ClitLove Blog Hop and Twitter hash tag party. There Will Be Prizes!

As most of you have figured out over time, my sense of fun can be a bit on the naughty side. It stood to reason that the tongue on bean humor from Jay & Silent Bob Strikes Back would be the perfect way to kick things off for me.

If there is one thing that seems to have been all over magazines geared to attract women it’s been the orgasm…and the zillion of variations with which women can achieve them (either solo or with a partner). Somewhere along the way the “Holy Grail” of orgasms became the G-Spot orgasm (never mind that there are those who think it’s like Santa and doesn’t exist). This got me thinking. Why, when we hear about women who’ve never achieved orgasm through intercourse, are we worrying about the hard to find one when we’ve got a little love button hidden in plain sight with nothing but a little hood for protection?

That pretty little pearl exists for nothing but a woman’s pleasure. In fact, it’s the only body part that functions purely for pleasure! A little shy, she needs a little coaxing to come out of her shell, but touch her just right and she’ll swell with beauty before detonating from the inside in shudders of pleasure and love juice.

Most self aware women are well aware of just how reliable that little bud is. In fact, “Clicking the mouse” is a reference to self pleasure through clitoral stimulation. Some of the most popular sex toys were designed with that tiny little pleasure part in mind from bullet and egg sex toys to butterfly panties (with remote) as made more popular by Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler in The Ugly Truth.

The good news is that unlike the G-Spot, pretty much everyone seems to know where to find the clit….or at least the general vicinity. The better news is that this area, like women, can enjoy all sorts of different and versatile approaches to similar results! That means it takes most of the guess work out of it. Watch!

Getting any ideas yet? I know I am… As My friend and fellow blog hopper, August McLaughlin would say…I’m well on my way to a Girl Boner. Check out her what she has to say about The Highly Sensitive Clitoris. My darling friend, Ande Lyons from Bring Back Desire, cheers on all things that make a woman feel sexy and sensual. She, too, is participating with a post called Celebrating The Clitoris. Yolanda Shoshana, a new friend on Twitter who specializes in Courtesan Coaching and Clairvoyance joined the party with her post, Cheers To The Clit. Lana Fox wrote Freud’s Big Clitoral Snake and Angela Tavares who wrote Where Were You The First Time You Found The Clitoris at Go Deeper Press.

You can also join us today on Twitter, using the hashtag #ClitParty. For a chance to WIN an erotic book from Go Deeper Press , an erotic romance selected by Bring Back Desire or a 30-minute clairvoyant reading with Goddess Isis Oracle (via Skype or phone), Tweet us about your clitoris: What you love about it, what you’d say to it, your nickname for it—whatever!—using the hashtag #ClitParty.

Prizes will be awarded for the most retweets and/or favorites, with extra points given for creativity. (Pssst! Guys can enter, too! Talk about a romantic gesture—tweeting about your sweetheart’s clit.;))

As you guys know, I love when people share their thoughts, so I look forward to seeing what you have to say on the topic both on here and on Twitter. You guys never disappoint in your love of all things fun and sexy! Orgasm education is a good cause, don’t you agree? Viva La Clitty!

And for those of you who still feel you need more info on the clit…check out Clitoris They have a ton of interesting stuff!

    Not only do you write the BEST posts… your choices of entertaining clips have me HOWLING out loud… especially Jay and Silent Bob! And those guys trying to share how to stimulate the clit… OMG… too funny.

    Heartily agree with L.J.’s comment… any vibrating toy with ears is clitoricious!

    Viva la clitoris!

    Your blog hopping, #ClitParty pal,

      LMAO! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I know I was cracking up when I watched it again (and again) before I put the link into the post.

      As for those lovely ears…Yes…they are wonders for bringing down the love juice. 😉

      I’m really loving #ClitParty fun with you!


  2. August McLaughlin says:

    I have to say, I’ve long envied women who could “click the mouse” and climax… I’m so glad you shared more about orgasming in this way, which is the most common and absolutely pleasurable, among women. Too many of us find ourselves or our sexual preferences or style “weird,” when really, if we’re feeling great and healthy, who cares? It’s ALL GOOD, right?

    Thanks for the sweet shout out, and for helping to make the #ClitParty so much fun. You rock, darlin’! So does this post. 🙂


    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      Thanks, August! And you’re right…Different strokes for different folks, but as long as there’s pleasure, who the heck cares how we get there? I don’t. The important part is to be comfortable with yourself… Loving yourself (physically, mentally, emotionally) is important. It’s also the first step in being able to be comfortable enough to communicate your preferences with your partner. 😉

    LOVED it…butterfly panties huh? And like one poster said the rabbit is the girls best friend…agreed! I wonder what people would say if I wished them a “Happy Clit Day!”


  4. Jess Witkins says:

    Your blog title is amazing and I want to know what kinds of fabulous spam you start getting following your blog! LOL

    Funny story for Clitoris Week: I like having variety to pick from when choosing a condom, so my boyfriend ordered this massive variety pack from Amazon, and I put them in a celtic carved stone box. I call it my “toy box.” Hahaha So many euphemisms, so little time.


    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      Oh, that’s awesome! And every girl should have a “toy box”. I have a red one. It’s circular, like a small hat box…and the material looks like some sort of lizard skin but in pleather.

      I’m so glad you liked my title. I wanted to get it just right. 😀


  5. filbio says:

    As a man willing to dole out lots of pleasure I always make it a point explore the clitoral area close up and personal!

    Another great post and good to see you spread open about this subject!


    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      Oh, dude! I soooo love you for your choice of words. You gonna stop by the #ClitParty and throw something down there, too? I hope you do. I’m also very proud of you for your willingness to put yourself on the front lines of sensual exporation. It’s important to use the 5 senses when dealing with seduction.

    Congratulations, Kit and crew … you ladies are doing a fine job of getting the word out about Cliteracy … brilliant title! I just popped in to represent the ‘senior’ demographic and assure you that advancing years do not diminish the power of the clit!


  7. Professor Taboo says:

    I too wasn’t aware of the national anatomical project or awareness week; I don’t need the government ‘pushing’ me to enjoy and or appreciate, metaphorically or literally, certain parts of a woman’s body. Frequent spontaneity rules there. But thank you so much Kitt for bringing such a DELICIOUS topic to my attention!

    Now where did I place that Venus Butterfly and its remote? 😉


    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      Actually, this is the first clitoral awareness week. It’s something started in hopes of teaching people to celebrate such an important part of a woman’s sexuality and also to educate why mutilation/destruction of such a lovely part of female anatomy needs to stop. Unfortunately there are still countries in Africa, etc who are participating in these practices.

      Like you, though, I don’t limit myself to celebrating my clit to just one week…I do it often.


      • Professor Taboo says:

        Wow! I was also unaware of African (tribal?) mutilation/destruction of that particular part. Do you think their logic was based on population control & excessive mouths to feed? Not that that justifies it. It is clearly a severe lack of education and ill-founded myths!

        Isn’t it wonderfully delicious that most all forms of sensuality and sexuality are biologically, neurologically, intellectually, and emotionally VERY healthy and should be practiced often? Like so much more than the norm! Responsibly of course. 🙂


        • Kitt Crescendo says:

          From what I’ve gathered, those who observe such practices (and the number of girls under 10 years old that it’s done to is staggering) believe it to be for beautification of woman through preservation of modesty and “cleanliness”. It’s done in preparation for marriage, linking virginity at time of marriage to fidelity.

          It’s absolutely fantastic that sexual pleasure is tied to health. One more reason to make time for bedroom romps!

    The clit is amazing, the interior part as well as the little bit that we can feel externally. I can orgasm from instant nipple stimulation which preps the clit because the nipples are wired directly to the clit. I can also have my “stealth orgasms” as I call them — a few seconds of barely there, gentle touch with my fingertip to the outside of my clit (in her hood), and I’m in back-arching orgasms. These are not the outwardly explosive kind of orgasm like clitoral orgasms with a more firm stimulation. These are more full-body clitoral orgasms. (And I never use vibrators. Bad for the nerve endings. 🙂 I truly appreciate anyone who is helping to get accurate information about women’s sexuality out into the world. 🙂
