Exactly. There is quite a bit of confusion about clitoral versus vaginal orgasm... some researchers contend that there's really no such thing as vaginal intercourse. They argue that so-called vaginal orgasms are in fact the result of clitoral stimulus. But...

From psych wiki:
"Recent discoveries about the size of the clitoris - it extends inside the body, around the vagina - complicate or may invalidate attempts to distinguish clitoral vs. vaginal orgasms. Recent anatomical research shows that there are nerves connecting intravaginal tissues and the clitoris. This, with the anatomical evidence that the internal part of the clitoris is a much larger organ than previously thought, could explain credible reports of orgasms in women who have undergone clitorectomy as part of female circumcision. The link between the clitoris and the vagina is evidence that the clitoris is the 'seat' of the female orgasm and is far more wide-spread than the visible part most people associate with it. But it is possible that some women have more extensive clitoral tissues and nerves than others, and so that some women can achieve orgasm only by direct stimulation of the external part of the clitoris."

So, it may be moot as we learn more about female anatomy.
