pussy n clit

pussy n clit

lizzie borden digs thomas and thea lowry's classic text THE CLITORIS too!

a few things she learned about herself (and others) from the chapter devoted to animals:

-- mammals such as the cat and rabbit require mechanical stimulation of the clitoris, vulva, and vagina in order to induce ovulation. in the practice of artificial insemination of cattle, it is well-known that stimulating the clitoris will induce immediate response.

--the “winking effect” refers to a mating ritual performed by female heifers and mares in heat. when a male stern or stallion comes close, the female’s clitoris retracts under the hood then swells out again. as he takes another step closer, the clitoris retracts yet again, then the labia relaxes, and the clitoris slips out.

-- african elephants, moles (except during mating season), and the new world monkey, all appear “superficially similar” to the opposite sex. in the gibbon monkey, the clitoris is longer than the penis. rabbits also have a “large clitoris” with an average length of about 3 cm as compared with the female cat’s 1 cm clitoris.
