14 Things To Know About Clitoral Erections:
1) You don’t have to be gay or straight to experience clitoral erections.
They are common among both men and women. There is no reason why they shouldn’t exist between partners of any sexual orientation.
2) These feelings may not always be pleasurable, but they do occur during sexual activity and are very normal.
If you’re having trouble getting them to stop, try using lube!
3) There is nothing wrong with your genitals if you have these feelings.
Some people just don’t enjoy orgasms from penetrative vaginal penetration. Others may prefer clitoral stimulation, so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t experience either one.
4) Sometimes, clitoral erections are accompanied by other sensations such as tingling or numbness in the genital area.
These sensations are usually temporary and go away after ejaculation (or even before).
5) You can learn how to control your own clitoral arousal.
If you want to, you can masturbate yourself while touching yourself, or even touch another person’s genitals without experiencing any type of erection. You could also use toys to stimulate your clit and make it harder for you to reach climax. Orgasms will come naturally when you practice these techniques!
6) You can have multiple orgasms.
It’s very common for women to experience multiple orgasms, so if you’re in a relationship, you should let your partner know!
7) You may not always have an erection.
Since we’re talking about stimulation of the clitoris, it’s normal for it to become erect or even throb with pleasurable sensations. Just because you don’t have a full-blown erection, doesn’t mean you’re not enjoying the activity.

8) It’s normal for your clit to become erect when you’re not even thinking about having sexual activity.
Many women have noticed an increase in sensitivity and arousal, which sometimes leads to pleasurable feelings. This may be a sign that you need an intimate encounter with your partner, or it may just be a result of your day-to-day activities (such as wearing clothes that are tighter than usual).
9) You shouldn’t feel embarrassed if you experience an erection.
If anyone else notices it, they’re probably going to be able to guess what you’re thinking about, or are already aware of the reason behind it. Don’t worry! It happens to the best of us.
10) You can have a clitoral erection even if you’re not masturbating or having any type of sexual activity. Many women who are in a relationship have noticed changes in their genitals when they see a particularly hot guy. It’s completely normal to experience this when you see someone of the same gender, so don’t worry about it!
11) You can make yourself have a clitoral erection. If you’re having trouble getting into the mood or you just don’t feel any pleasure, then you can try putting a small amount of pressure on your clit. Don’t use too much force or you might hurt yourself.
12) Orgasms can be painful for some women. You may experience a lot of pain while trying to reach an intense climax. This can be frustrating, but there are ways to prevent it from happening! For starters, you can use a water-based lube while masturbating.
You should also make sure that everything down there is properly clean. Using your fingers to rub yourself may seem like a good idea, but it can cause tiny micro-tears in the skin. When this happens, you may experience an increase in pain while having orgasms.
You can also try to reduce the frequency of how many orgasms you have. Having one every once in a while is great for your health, but constantly having them can be bad for you. As with anything else in life, everything should be done in moderation.
13) Orgasms can cause your muscles to tighten up. This is actually a good thing because it can prevent you from experiencing pain during penetration. If you’re trying to have a baby and can’t, then a doctor may give you something similar to an erection.
If you get the drug, make sure to take it as needed and no more than three times daily. Overdosing on this type of medication can be dangerous, so you should never try to exceed the recommended dosage. While it can help you achieve an erection, it shouldn’t be used as a substitute for real stimulation.
If you’re experiencing pain during penetration, talk to your doctor about getting this prescription. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or woman, they can prescribe something similar that is designed for your body type.
14) If you drink too much alcohol, then you might lose the ability to have an erection. This shouldn’t be a surprise, since one of the main side effects of alcohol is a loss of muscle control. Alcohol can also affect your ability to achieve an erection by messing with the blood flow to your genitals.
You’re probably not going to want to drink as much when you go out if you want to make sure that you can get it up later on that night.
