Clitoris enlargement is a form of body modification which has recently gained popularity because of its potential to increase pleasure and enhance the appearance of the genitals. Clitoral enlargement can be accomplished through a variety of means, the most common being:
- Use of a clitoral pump
- Testosterone injection into the shaft of the clitoris
- Use of testosterone creams on the clitoris
There is disagreement on the best approach, many claim size increases from pumping while others say testosterone is the only way to obtain significant results. Both methods involve some risk. If pumping is done incorrectly it can cause damage to the erectile tissue and blood vessels. The use of any steroid such as testosterone incurs risk as steroids can drastically change body chemistry.
Motivations for desiring enlargement of the clitoris vary. Women who have a very small clitoris may not get adequate pleasure from sexual intercourse and therefore may choose to enlarge it to increase pleasure. Women with normally sized clitores may wish to increase size to increase pleasure or to appear more attractive.
Clitoral enlargement can also be a medical condition known as clitoromegaly or macroclitoris.
