Mapping The Female Genital Nerve Net

The BBC ran a report on recent research into female sexual experience specifically the genital nerve net. Apparently, the male wiring has been pretty thoroughly researched but female…not so much. Efforts to remedy that situation has yielded somewhat surprising results:

“‘We’ve learned that there’s probably no two of us that are alike when it comes to the branching of the pudendal nerve,’ Coady says.

“‘The way the branches [of the nerve] move through the body leads to difference in sexuality, meaning what areas may be more sensitive for one woman may not be for another.’

The pudendal nerve is the most important nerve for making orgasms happen – it’s the one that links the genitals to the brain-firing messages of touch, pressure and sexual activity.

Coady also found that each woman has a different number of nerve endings at each of the five erogenous zones in the genital area – the clitoris, the vaginal opening, the cervix, the anus and the perineum.

“‘This leads to why some women may be more sensitive in the clitoral area, some may be more sensitive just in the vaginal opening,’ she says.”
