Why is my clitoris is darker?

My clitoris is darker than my usual skin color. What does this mean?


Nothing in particular. Generally, people refer to the hood of the clitoris as the clitoris and its color tends to be the same tone as the rest of your skin. However, it can vary and is still normal. The clitoris itself is a bit darker because there is more blood flow in that area. The blood flow allows the clitoris to stand out a bit when a woman is sexually aroused, but this same blood flow underneath the skin makes the clitoris look several shades darker than the rest of the skin.
