What is a girl's clit?
Clit is short for clitoris. The clitoris is a sexual organ only present in females. It is a highly complex structure containing over 8,000 nerve endings. The visible part of the clitoris is situated at the front end of the area between the inner lips of the vulva above the area from which you urinate from. Check out our Vagina info fact sheet for a diagram showing where the clitoris is.
It can be useful to use a mirror to have a look at your own clitoris. You can also use your fingers to explore this area and touch your clitoris to see how it feels.
The clitoris is the organ of sexual pleasure in women and touching and rubbing of the clitoris can cause the intense sexual pleasure of an orgasm. Have a look at the links below for further info.
