Answer Key for Female and Male Sexual Functioning FEMALE 1. c. The clitoris has virtually as many nerve endings as the male penis. However, many women find that indirect stimulation of the clitoris is most satisfying due to its sensitivity. 2. b. The vagina is a muscular organ that will adapt to the size of any penis during intercourse. 3. b. Despite observations of penis captivus among animals such as dogs, penis captivus can only occur when the penis contains a bone.
