Abstract

This article describes clitoral foreskin adhesions and reviews the past references to this condition. A retrospective analysis was done to determine the incidence and clinical significance of these adhesions in 271 women seen at a sexual dysfunction clinic. A high incidence, greater than 70%, was noted; however, no significant differences were found between groups divided on the basis of orgasmic status in coital and noncoital situations. The findings cast doubt on the clinical significance of this condition, and therefore also provide some contradictory evidence to the involvement of the clitoris in coital orgasm through a labial-preputial mechanism.
