The female genitalia follows a consistent basic anatomy, but the appearance between women can vary greatly. Further, the external genitalia appearance can be affected by genetics, aging, hormones, childbirth and weight changes. The clitoral hood, or prepuce, is the tissue that naturally drapes and conceals the clitoris. It is the most forward extension of the labia minora, and is lifted out of the way for clitoral exposure.
