In brief: Similar

While not as visible as a male erection, a woman's clitoris is similar in structure and function.
It is the focus of arousal, and will become erect when stimulated. When arousal does not occur...Whether due to medications or other reasons, sexual pleasure and interest may be diminished. It is still possible for a woman to have intercourse without arousal, while male anatomy requires an erection.
