|The internal anatomy of the human vulva, with the clitoral hood and labia minora indicated as lines|
The clitoral glans (glans clitoridis) is an external portion of the clitoris.
The clitoral glans is attached to the clitoral body, which is internal.
The head or glans of the clitoris is roughly the size and shape of a pea, although it can be significantly larger or smaller. The clitoral glans is highly sensitive, containing as many nerve endings as the analogous organ in males, the glans penis, making it particularly well-suited for sexual stimulation. During arousal, the glans becomes engorged with blood and retracts into the clitoral hood.
