Sex Nerdist: Word of the Day

Frenulum, aka, The Clittiest Part of the Man-Clit
Teaching sex skills to shy Americans can be challenging, and blowjob skills are no exception. This past week we broke a record. Over 100 curious people showed up to hear what tune my cohort and I had to hum on the subject.
To encourage a meeting of minds (and genitals) I like to play a little game called “Match Those Bits!”
Whaaa? But what do clitorides have to do with…
Silence, you! Girl parts and boy parts are way similar! So similar, in fact, that all sorts of parallels can be made in their erotic experience. My favorite example is how to play with the scrotal sac. It’s the same tissue that makes up the inner lady-labia. Tug on that! Thus the male member’s samurai helmet is an enlarged version of your mom’s love button, complete with more concentrated nerve endings, it’s own version of a foreskin, and a shaft!
As for the friendly frenulum, he lives on the underside of the penile crown. He’s an itty-bitty sliver of skin, really.
But oh how itty-bitty he is not! The frenulum truly is the “clittiest part of the man-clit.” As the head of Knobsville, he is the uber-sensitive key to Castle O, the most celebrated citizen in the kingdom of Fellatia. He really gives us givers a hand.
His purpose? To connect the foreskin to the head of the penis in intact individuals.
His secret? As I like to tell my students, “if your man is taking an hour, focus your resources here” as I wax-on/wax-off at the top of our over-sized (or is it?) cartoon tool with ninja-like prowess.
So why do I bring up this clitcentric frenulum world-view? Because unlike popular belief, some men take a bit longer to “complete the launch codes,” even with the most ravenous beauty at their trousers. I write to bring light to a truly special place on the human landscape. I give you, The Frenulum.
