Professor Olga Rockenstein stood before the Psychology of Female Sexuality, staring at us with bulldog-intense eyes. The word sounded familiar, but I was 20, and too much time had passed since high school health class. Sigh …. When I learned its actual location, between the inner folds of the vulva, at the top of the labia diagram here , I wondered if mine was broken. When I or my boyfriend touched mine, I felt…ticklish. Really ticklish, as in it nearly hurt.
What is clitorodynia (clitoral pain)? | ISSM
My clitoris is so sensitive it is painful when touched directly, even by something such as a jet-spray of water in the shower. I can touch myself over my clothes and climax, but I'm always reading that direct clitoral stimulation should be extremely pleasurable, and I'm upset that I can't experience this. It is troubling for my partner too, even though I can orgasm through penetration. Oral sex also feels painful. Should I just be happy I can climax at all? Or should I get this checked out by a doctor, although I don't know if this is the sort of thing I could go to a GP with. You could certainly ask your GP to refer you to a gynaecologist, who may be able to discern the cause of your acute clitoral sensitivity and possibly find ways to assuage it.
