How To Reverse Clitoral Atrophy:

The clitoris is a nub of spongy tissue at the front of the vagina. It is the primary source of pleasure for women because the majority of women orgasm by touching, licking, sucking, etc, the clitoris. Recent research reveals that much of the clitoris is internal with 4-inch roots that reach into the vagina. Its shape is similar to the wishbone. When sexually aroused it fills with blood, and becomes sensitive to touch.
