The term clitoral refers to a woman for whom it is easier to reach orgasm through stimulation of her clitoris. The clitoris is the female erectile organ located at the anterior part of the vulva. At the time of sexual arousal, the clitoris becomes erect. It is lined with Krause's corpuscles which generate pleasure. The clitoral orgasm causes vaginal contractions and vaginal orgasm is closely linked to sensations in the clitoris.
