Bigger Is Better: Size Counts When it Comes to Female Orgasms

Update Date: Feb 21, 2014 03:31 PM EST

New research reveals that size matters when it comes to orgasms. Scientists have linked women's ability to orgasm to the size and location of their clitoris.

The latest findings reveal that women who suffer from anorgasmia or who cannot orgasm have significantly smaller clitorises that are located farther from the vagina than those who experience normal sexual functioning.

The study used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to scan the pelvic area of 30 sexually active women who were on average 32. Researchers said that 10 of the women reported that they have rarely or never experienced orgasm, according to the Daily Mail.

"Although adequate sexual function is complex, we document that clitoral size and location may be paramount in impacting sexual function, specifically orgasm," researchers wrote in the study.

Researchers believe the latest findings could lead to new treatments for women who are unable to experience orgasms.

"Although these physical characteristics cannot be changed, understanding the physiology of the female sexual response advances knowledge," researchers wrote in the study. "In addition, such awareness may highlight strategies for treatment of women distressed by sexual dysfunction."

"There's no G spot. There's a C spot - the clitoris," lead researcher Dr. Susan Oakley of the Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio told Livescience. "It is the source of a lot of sexual pleasure for the female."

The findings are published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
