Not Finding the Clitoris?

Not Finding the Clitoris?

Sir Sir
Today, a little joke was posted on Edenfantasys' Facebook page about "finding the clitoris." It made me wonder, since I've heard this wording used in the past: how does one not know where a clitoris is?

I believe that the majority of reviewers and members of the Edenfantasys community know that the clitoris is an external piece of the genitalia that extends internally and can be stimulated both through pressing at the areas where it is not seen (the crura) and also directly on the clitoris or clitoral hood.

Are they confusing the clitoris with the g-spot, a relatively harder to find area? Or do they truly mean that people are unable to see where the clitoris is? Perhaps they mean that the person is unaware of HOW to stimulate the clitoris?

What are your thoughts on this extremely old joke? Do you find it funny? What are its origins?

As always, responses are appreciated. Thank you.

Sir

Ah, here:

"It takes 237 muscles to fake an orgasm, but only 15 to say, 'It's called a clitoris and it's right here.'"

I guess I would say I don't think it's funny. I do think that sadly there are men who are unaware that most women need clitoral stimulation to climax and perhaps the joke is making fun of men who ignore the clitoris during sex.

Of course none of those men are here at EF!

I think that some men (and women) really just don't know their way around 'lady bits.' Some women are raised that they're unclean and it's wrong to touch themselves, so until they finally get to that stage with a partner they don't even really have an idea about what's going on down there.

Similarly, I think that if a boy has never really had any formal education and they're brought up in a strict setting, they could be having intercourse and just know that there's a moist orifice down there somewhere.

Luckily, between the world getting a bit more open about sexuality and school sexual education this seems to be a dwindling issue.

Your right. Old joke, probably more fitting 40 years ago.

I know people who don't know where it is (male and female), and they are not virgins, if you don't take the chance to learn than you'll never know.

I had been with four or five women before I learned about the clit or what function it had. So I am guessing it is more of a serious type joke that has some meaning behind it.

I've seen many variations on that joke that I'm tired of it, but there is truth to the idea that some men are unaware of female anatomy.

I place a huge amount of blame on Playboy, which is probably the first girlie magazine every boy gets his hands on. They create unreal expectations by air-brushing out every freckle, pimple or stretchmark, but even worse is that sometime in the early-80's they started air-brushing away female anatomy.

Once hairless became the craze, you might see the clitoral hood and the labia majora, but never anything more detailed, and never in close-up. I made the connection when my husband had a subscription to the magazine which included online access. When comparing the un-retouched online photos to the same photos in the print edition, it was obvious that the editors went to great pains to remove any shots including the clitoris and/or labia minora from the magazine.

I've been with my guy for years and he still misses my Clitoris from time to time. He usually hits it spot on, but there are still times I have to direct his hands to the right place and I always think "Really....?!?". lol

He says he can't feel the difference from one part to the next, but I don't know how truthful that is. I think he only says that because he's embarrassed when I move his hands or correct him, which he shouldn't be. It's really no big deal.

I don't mean to make him sound like an incompetent lover or anything - because that he is definitely not, but he has his moments.

I can totally believe it. I went to a pretty progressive school, and my sex ed never even mentioned the clitoris. A lot of books designed to teach kids about sex don't really mention it either--many of them will maybe point it out on a diagram, but since they don't discuss the fact that it's just as much a sexual organ as a man's penis, I'm willing to bet a large number of people don't really pay attention to it.

Besides, I think there's an element of sarcasm in the joke--like, maybe the person being addressed does sort of know where it is but is ignoring it in favor of PIV sex--that's also not uncommon.
