Here it is, the clitoral hood coverage chart!
Inspired by the aforementioned foreskin coverage index, I wondered how much variation there is in the length of the clitoral hood, the vulva’s homologue (equivalent) to the foreskin. I decided to go about constructing a similar chart with the help of my followers. Each clitoral hood you see here belongs to somebody who was willing to contribute to the project. Pictures were taken in a non-aroused state, and contributors were asked to estimate their own level of coverage, to help me decide where on the chart to place them.
I’m happy with the amount of diversity I was able to represent. In addition to the wide variety of hood lengths, there’s also a variety of ages ranging from 18 to 36, different gender identities and sexual orientations, and different races and ethnicity. Some of the contributors are pierced, some aren’t. Some have had children, some haven’t. Some shave their vulva area, some don’t. All in all, I hope for the chart to serve as not only an informative tool, but also a celebration of uniqueness.
It’s worth noting that the fourth picture on the CI-1 level belongs to someone who was subjected to genital mutilation as an infant. Her circumcision removed her clitoral hood, but left her labia and clitoris intact, thankfully. I’m grateful that she was kind enough to share her story and her picture with me.
If any of you reading this are interested in being included in this chart, get in contact with me! I’ll be making a second edition of the chart in a few months, and would be happy to include new submissions.
Thanks goes out to each of you who contributed! I appreciate your willingness to share this.
