We all get erections
Cue your Oprah voice, because you get a hard-on, and you get a hard-on, and you get a hard-on…
That’s right, folks of all genders and genitalia can get erections, not just people with penises!
But chances are you didn’t learn that in health class. So, to help you become more cliterate, we put together this sheet on clitoral erections.
What’s the average increase in size?
When erect, the part of the clit you can see (the glans) “will peak out of the clitoral hood and grow in size 50 to 300 percent,” according to Heather Jeffcoat, a doctor of physical therapy who specializes in sexual functioning.
And the vaginal lips will swell during arousal so that they are two to three times bigger than usual, she said.
And remember: Even the parts of the clitoral structure you can’t see swell and engorge as a result of the increased blood flow.
