I once had to learn about the inner workings of the penis for an exam and was blown away by all the stuff that actually goes on. When someone is aroused blood rushes to the genitals and fills the corpus spongiosum (the spongy looking parts), creating an erection. Since the clit is the equivalent to the penis a similar process happens to the clit, filling the hood with blood creating a small erection as well. Depending on the size of the clit this may be more obvious on some than others. The penis and clit are great examples of pretty cool things our bodies do. Or at least I think they’re pretty cool!
