Anonymous asked: I asked this before; I think tumblr ate it but if you answered and i missed it, sorry! I feel like my clitoral hood comes down to far or is too tight. Sometime I can touch a bit of my clit but not really and guys can never "find" it. I never orgasmed and feel like this could be part of the problem. Is there anything I can do?
This is really common! the clitoral hood can cover various parts of the clitoris, some completely cover it and the clitoris may be a little “hidden” some don’t cover it at all (Uncutting actually has a NSFW chart showing different clitoral coverage that I contributed to). What I suggest is putting the palm of your hand on your mons pubis, one finger on either side of the top of your clitoral area and then gently pull your hand back towards your stomach. This will cause the clitoral hood to come up more and make you more sensitive to touch. Don’t force it! Just like with the foreskin, the clitoral hood can be tight which can cause pain and irritation and risk infection if you force the clitoral hood to retract. Also like phimosis (the condition in which the foreskin is too tight) it can be treated with regular stretching. You do this by soaking in a steamy tub and gently moving the skin around the clitoris back and away from the glans. Over time it will become easier to retract. Using lube can also increase sensitivity.
