Can Your Urethral Opening be in Your Clitorial Hood?

Hi Betty,

I know that all vaginas, and vulvas etc are different, but your latest video got me thinking...

I've looked online at the photos of a woman's clitoris etc, and in the diagrams the urethra opening is just above the vaginal opening, with the clitoris under a little hood above the urethra opening.

Now, I thought this looked kind of weird to me, so I got my mirror out and had a look. I'm certain that my urethra opening is in fact in the hood with the clitoris maybe just at the opening or something, if that makes sense. I always thought it was weird when you say in videos, that you have to pause sex to go and pee, because usually I'm more likely to orgasm when I need to pee! I always make sure I go to the toilet after we're finished though.

I don't think I'm worried about it or anything, it's probably just how I am, but I'm just wondering if this is commonish in girls? Or am I particularly unique haha.


Dear P,

We are all unique but there are basic similarities when it comes to our sex organs. First question I have for you is did you look into a free-standing mirror with a bright light using both hands to pull your outer and inner labia apart? Because what you are describing is pretty crazy! Your anatomy is all mixed up! I'm including a link to a drawing I did of our divine vulva.

Women who must pee during partner sex usually have a lover with his/her finger pressing up on the ceiling of the vagina that indirectly stimulates the urinary tract above. And some women report that a full bladder gives them more sensation during vaginal penetration. However, if a woman engages her clitoris during fucking she will have the best of both worlds.

Sounds like a boring ol' intersex condition to me.  Sometimes people develop with their tubes in non-traditional places.  As long as it's enjoyable, you've got nothing to worry about.

Hmmm if what your describing

I'm 31 years old and just learned my urethra is NOT supposed to be under the clitoral hood! Mine 100% is! I have a "cluster" of tissue where drawings show the urethra is supposed to be, but mine is up directly underneath the clitoris, beneath the hood! I'm having a crisis of identity right now.
