This 3D-printed clitoris model is set to transform sex ed classes in France – The Sydney Morning Herald

Women have erections, penises and clitorises are made of the same tissue and pleasure is the sole function of the clitoris. Whilst we’re at it, the clitoris is shaped a little like a sycaadditional seed, with two distinct arms, two bulbs, a body and a glans.
None of this I learnt in sex ed. Indeed, in the respected and much-republished book Understanding Human Sexuality, the clitoris is depicted just as the glans. Sex education as it exists in most schools is rife with misinformation. 3D printed clitoris, made by French researcher Odile Fillod. 3D printed clitoris, made by French researcher Odile Fillod. Photo: Marie Docher, suppliedFrance may have sadly blinkered views when it comes to swimwear, but it is on its way to becoming additional revolutionary than most countries in the sex education department. A French researcher has made the world’s initially open-source, 3D printable, anatomically correct clitoris for use in schools and classrooms of September, reports The Guardian.
The work of sociomedical researcher Odile Fillod, this tiny sculpture can teach French children of what has so obviously been missing of the conversation around sex for all these years – that, essentially, while the penis and vagina go together like, well, precisely that, they are not equivalents in terms of sensation. For females, that job goes to the clitoris.
Fillod made the version – the blueprint of that can be downloaded and utilized anywhere, but is not part of France’s formal school curriculum – as part of her work on a modern sex education video with Toulouse-based V.Ideaux. According to The Guardian, it struck her that the clitoris was never presented correctly in school textbooks. She and so made the 3D version at the Cité des Sciences et de L’Industrie in Paris.
She told the newspaper: “It’s significant that women have a mental image of what is in fact taking place in their body when they’re stimulated.

“In belief the key role of the clitoris, a woman can stop feeling shame, or [that she’s] abnormal if penile-vaginal intercourse does not do the trick for her – given the anatomical data, that is the case for most women… I wanted to show that men and women are not essentially different.”
The tiny, oddly shaped organ is just partially visible, so it was sidelined, misrepresented, actually forgotten, in sex education. When it comes to teaching of sex – and this goes for adults of all ages as well as children – the penis is the dominant player, the excitable structure that takes precedent in the system.
Whilst Helen O’Connell, the major urology surgeon of Melbourne, and Suzann Gage, LA author of The New View of Woman’s Body, did additional for the clitoris in the 1980s and 1990s than most thousands of years of civilisation, their efforts to demystify female anatomy made little impact on the way sex education is approached and understood.
And preceding that, there was quite little mention at all of the clit’s true form and function – anatomical renderings of 1800s cadavers, the odd poem and whispers one of women, maybe, of the organ’s possibilities.
It’s of time both women and men learnt their way around the just organ known to exist for the sole purpose of sexual pleasure, in all its resting or erect glory.
As one French man told Daily Life on hearing of his home country’s latest educational aid, “pleasure comes of knowledge”.
