The Clitoris: A Beloved and Unexplored Organ

Irina Pino

The clitoris, that great unknown.

HAVANA TIMES — There are plenty of men who fail to meet women’s expectations when the latter ask for oral sex. They make excuses, saying they fear contracting venereal diseases, even though there are many treatments that eliminate vaginal parasites.

The more direct lot openly say they don’t like putting their lips and tongues down there, or do it begrudgingly and poorly. The fact of the matter, however, is that they love getting it done to their members, and ejaculating inside someone’s mouth is also very much to their liking.

This kind of discrimination makes sexual enjoyment unbalanced across the genders. It’s not a question of forcing anyone to do something they don’t want to do, but, nevertheless, I believe that one should be democratic on sexual matters (unless one gets off through sadism or masochism – there are ways of obtaining pleasure that no one even speaks about).

There are those who get in and out quickly without even arousing their partners, perhaps because they believe they’ve done enough or their selfishness won’t let them act differently.

Though it is also true that women experience sex differently, it’s unusual for someone not to be interested in this type of caress. I have a friend who started enjoying it after turning 40, when she divorced her husband, who was always reluctant to do it. She then met someone who had the needed delicacy and skill to satisfy her, without the need to ask him to do so.

Some women are inhibited and feel ashamed to express their desires. Love and spiritual connection are not enough. The body and the mind must be pleased as a whole.

Lovemaking is an art. There are books, like the Kamasutra, that expound on different sexual techniques, positions that enhance enjoyment. It would not be taboo to speak of these issues in the mass media and to have shows that touch on these mechanisms, if we can call them that.

Once, a television program aired a documentary titled El clitoris: ese gran desconocido,“ (The Clitoris the Great Unknown) which explained the mysteries of this organ, revealed its texture and its long, nervous endings. It also captured the experiences of women who masturbate, delving into their levels of arousal and climaxes.

This small, erectile organ is often undervalued (though it’s not truly small). Its tip is not the most commonly struck area, all of its protrusions (including upper and lower lips) take part in the action.

To the discontent of many females here who watched it, the documentary was cut. I suppose TV higher-ups thought the second half was far too shocking for the public.

Irina Pino: I was born in the middle of shortages in those sixties that marked so many patterns in the world. Although I currently live in Miramar, I miss the city center with its cinemas and theaters, and the bohemian atmosphere of Old Havana, where I often go. Writing is the essential thing in my life, be it poetry, fiction or articles, a communion of ideas that identifies me. With my family and my friends, I get my share of happiness.

  • I can assure you that Cuban women enjoy oral sex more than other women. Trust me! I cannot imagine not exploring that organ with your partner. There is nothing to be ashamed about oral sex. Irina is right that ejaculating inside partner’s mouth should come after you put your lips and tongue down there. Let’s stop discrimination in sexual enjoyment. Viva Cuba, Viva Clitoris!

  • Gordon and Carlyle, I think you have both drifted a few miles off the topic of this article. Please reread it and try and stick to the subject. Thanks.

  • My Cuban / Canadian children have both Cuban and Canadian rights and will be educated in Cuba with no student loans – Si !!!

  • So, the older four don’t live in Cuba – although I realise that there are those in the regime who may acquire $100,000 a year. I admire your paternal conceit that two children still in school will achieve their ambitions to be President and Minister of Education in a communist government in Cuba. But my concern is for my own Cuban family and in particular my four year old God-daughter. I have hope that she will eventually live in a free society, with freedom of public expression, freedom of movement, freedom of the media and freedom of political parties. She is unlikely to achieve that if your two children instructed by your Stalinist buddy Machado Ventura were to successfully pursue power and control over the people of Cuba.
    So Gordon I can only hope that like your own the conceit and ambition of your two youngest children is unjustified and fails – utterly!

  • All employed with incomes of over $ 100,000.00 a year. They are looking to retire to Cuba and help their brother and sister in their rolls in the new Cuban government.

  • You have told us Gordon of the ambitions of Michel and Angelica to be respectively President and Minister of Health in Cuba – having had the guidance about power from the Stalinist Machado Ventura, but pray what about the older four, are they already on their ways to the giddy heights of dictatorial power, or languishing in the lower levels of society?

  • On your next report on modern reproductive techniques could please add some pictures ? I am a wee bit unfamilar and a novice regarding todays baby making procedures. Still learning after all these years. Only six children born between 1967 and 2002. Bradley – Sterling – Tara – Sean – Michel – Angelica.
    Current skill level – vintage and rusty.

  • I am looking forward to a comment from DOLOMITESFORESKIN.

  • What? “The Triumph of the Cuban Clitoris”?? Oh wait! Wrong article….
    Irina, I love your posts! jajaja You never fail to bring to light the subtle intricacies and intimacies of the Cuban culture in ways that nobody else dares to mention. Good for you! Don’t stop. Havana Times needs someone like you.

  • OK Bob, one up for you!

  • Wow…after reading that I need a cigarette, and a cold shower! Although I’m not quite sure what this has to do with Cuba, unless Cuban women enjoy oral sex more than other women.

  • Irina: thank you for bringing forward another aspect of Cuban culture, the ability to discuss and simply enjoy the most basic aspects of life without the societal hangups that plague so much of the other parts of the world.

    Circles: you get a big “atta boy” from me.

    It is great to have a topic that no one can politicize.

    On topic: my limited experience teaches me that different partners respond to different simulations. We all need to openly communicate with our partners and find those techniques that are mutually satisfying.
