The Oxford English Dictionary states that the word clitoris likely has its origin in the Ancient Greek &kappa;&lambda;&epsilon;&iota;&tau;&omicron;&rho;ί&sigmaf;, kleitoris, perhaps derived from the verb &kappa;&lambda;&epsilon;ί&epsilon;&iota;&nu;, kleiein, "to shut". Clitoris is also Greek for the word &#39;key&#39;, indicating that the ancient anatomists considered it the key to female sexuality.It is actually important, especially for women, to get to know and understand about what the clitoris is and does.
