United together along their medial surfaces by an incomplete fibrous pectiniform septum; each corpus is connected to the rami of the pubis and ischium by a clitoral crus. The autonomic efferent motor innervation occurs via the cavernosal nerve of the clitoris arising from the pelvic and hypogastric plexus. The mucosa consists of a thick stratified squamous epithelium devoid of glands. The cervix is a relatively insensitive structure. Most authors claim that the clitoris has no spongiosus tissue. Glycogen, stored in the epithelial cells, reaches maximal levels at ovulation after which time the glycogen-rich superficial layer of epithelium is shed.
