Furthermore, what many people call "the clitoris" -- the little "button"
at the top of the vulva -- is NOT the entire clitoris. It is just the
clitoral glans, analogous to the TIP of the penis. The actual clitoris
lays beneath the skin in the shape of an upside-down letter "Y" that
forks around the vulva. The glans is at the top of this upside-down "Y"
figure.  

Most men prefer their entire penis to be stroked, not just the glans,
whether manually or during penis-in-vagina intercourse. The same is true
of most women, especially during intercourse -- they want a full
clitoral stroke, not just a button-rubbing. This is especially true
during penis-in-vagaina intercourse. The position which best facilitates
full clitoral stimulation during intercourse is typically woman-on-top,
although it is not the only way, of course. 

For further details on clitoral anatomy -- and an illustrated
explanation in simple terms that shows how and why many women can enjoy
full clitoral stimulation and orgasms during penis-in-vagina intercourse
through what is known medically as "clitoral excursion and seizure") --
see these two non-commercial, non-porn web pages:

These pages are also available in Spanish.

That was wonderfully expressed, James.
