Klitorisin ölçülebilir boyutları ve glansın görünürlüğü ile orgazm arasındaki ilişki
Relationship of orgasm with measurable dimensions of clitoris and visibility of clitoral glans

Çiğdem PULATOĞLU [1] , Aşkı ELLİBEŞ KAYA [2]


Amaç: Klitoris kadında baskın cinsel organıdır ve boyut olarak değişken olup genital duyum ve orgazmda etkin bir rol oynamaktadır. Klitoral glans görünürlüğünün önemi bilindiğinden klitoral glansı açığa çıkaracak cerrahiler gün geçtikçe artmaktadır. Ancak bu durumu destekleyecek literatür bilgisi yetersizdir. Bu çalışmanın amacı klitorisin ölçülebilir boyutları ve klitoral glans görünürlüğünün kadın cinsel fonksiyonu üzerindeki etkisini belirlemektir.
Yöntemler: Bu kesitsel çalışmaya dahil edilen 77 hastanın litotomi pozisyonunda klitorislerinin ölçülebilen boyutları ile klitoral glansın görünürlüğü ve prepisyum uzunlukları ölçülerek kaydedildi. Kadın Cinsel Fonksiyon İndeksi (FSFI) uygulandı. Hastalar normal orgazmik fonksiyonu olan ve orgazmik disfonksiyonu olan iki gruba ayrıldı. Bütün ölçümler tek araştırmacı tarafından yapıldı.
Bulgular: Klitoral glans genişliği, glans uzunluğu, prepisyum uzunluğu ölçümlerinde orgazmik fonksiyonlar açısından gruplar arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bir fark izlenmedi (P=0.11, P=0.63, P=0.35). Klitoral glansın görünür olduğu 51 hastanın 41 tanesi orgazmik grupta yer aldı. Klitoral glans görünürlüğünün orgazmik grupta daha fazla olduğu izlendi (P<0,001).
Sonuç: Klitoral glans görünürlüğü ile orgazm arasında anlamlı bir ilişki olduğundan klitoral glans görünürlüğünü artıracak şekilde uygulanan genital cerrahiler cinsel tatmini kolaylaştırabilir ve/veya orgazm yoğunluğunu artırabilir. Klitorisin ölçülebilen boyutları ve prepisyum uzunluğu ile orgazm arasındaki ilişkinin gösterilememesi klitoral uyarı için boyutlardan daha çok klitoral glansın görülebilir olmasının ön planda olduğunu düşündürmektedir.
Aim: The clitoris is the dominant sexual organ in the female, varies in size and plays an active role in genital sensation and orgasm. Since the importance of clitoral glans visibility is known, surgeries of clitoris are increasing day by day. However, there is insufficient literature on the subject. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of measurable dimensions of clitoris and the clitoral glans visibility on female sexual function.
Methods: Seventy-seven patients included in this cross-sectional study were examined in the lithotomy position and the measurable dimensions of the clitoris, the visibility of the clitoral glans and the length of the prepuce were noted. The Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) was applied to all participants, which were divided into two groups, as those with normal orgasmic function and orgasmic dysfunction. One researcher made all measurements.
Results: There were no statistically significant differences in clitoral glans width, length, or prepuce length (P=0.11, P=0.63, P=0.35, respectively). Clitoral glans was visible in 41 of 51 patients in the normal orgasmic function group, which was significantly higher than the group with orgasmic dysfunction (P<0.001).
Conclusion: Since there is a significant relationship between clitoral glans visibility and orgasm, genital surgeries performed to increase clitoral glans visibility can facilitate sexual satisfaction and/or increase orgasm intensity. The fact that the relationship between measurable dimensions of clitoris, length of prepuce and orgasm cannot be shown suggests that clitoral glans visibility is more important than clitoral size for sexual stimulation.
