Female Genitalia Cross Section Showing Relaxed Clitoris


3D visualization of a cross-section of the female genitalia reconstructed from scanned human data. Revealed are structures such as the mons pubis, the fatty eminence anterior to the pubic symphysis formed by the blending of the labia majora anteriorly. Enclosed within the labia majora are the labia minora which are thin skin folds which contain sebaceous glands. Superior to the labia majora is the clitoris, the main erectile organ in the female. The pea sized clitoris has one purpose only -- excitation - the product of extraordinary bioelectrics. It contains 8,000 nerve endings, twice as many as the penis and the most of any external structure in the body including fingers, lips and tongue. In this image the clitoris is in a relaxed state.
