Time to get some, guys:

By imaging the pelvises of healthy humans - rather than dissecting dead ones - [an Australian urologist, Dr Helen O'Connell] has found that the live clitoris is even larger than she first thought.

"There's nothing quite like the shape of a clitoris," she said. "The glans are dense with nerve endings and receptors - all the vibration and sensation is there." The bulk of it is shaped like a pyramid, she said.

Its base forms the external genitalia or vulva; its triangular "walls" are wrapped around the urine-carrying tube known as the urethra and the vagina. When aroused, the whole structure becomes engorged.

Just thought that it was about time a gay male blogger kept you up to date on these things.
