French Kids Will Learn About Sex From This 3D-Printed Clitoris

Boy smiling big and giving thumbs up sign

Once upon a time, Sigmund Freud was so freaked out by female sexuality that he declared the “clitoral” orgasm an “immature” cousin of the far superior (and, somewhat unfairly, much rarer) “vaginal” orgasm. Eighty plus years later, we know there’s no part of that idea that’s not bullshit, and yet, misinformation persists.

Enter sociomedical researcher Odile Fillod with a 3D-printed clitoris she hopes will help teach kids about sex. Good sex.

In an interview with The Guardian, Fillod explains that her anatomical model of the clitoris — which will be used in French sex education classes starting in September — will help correct the sexist stereotypes that are currently taught in French schools. (A recent report revealed that “current official guidelines state that young boys are more ‘focused on genital sexuality,’ while girls, lol, ‘attach more importance to love.’”) It will also help dispel myths around female pleasure, like the idea that the vagina is just an inside-out penis, and if you can’t have orgasms from sticking things in there, you’re probably broken.

CLIT MODEL 3D

Via The Guardian:

“It’s important that women have a mental image of what is actually happening in their body when they’re stimulated,” Paris-based Fillod says. “In understanding the key role of the clitoris, a woman can stop feeling shame, or [that she’s] abnormal if penile-vaginal intercourse doesn’t do the trick for her – given the anatomical data, that is the case for most women.”

“It’s also vital to know that the equivalent of a penis in a woman is not a vagina, it’s her clitoris. Women get erections when they’re excited, only you can’t see them because most of the clitoris is internal. I wanted to show that men and women are not fundamentally different.”

One thing that may surprise even adult women is just how big the clitoris is. While many think of it as a cute little nub, that’s actually “just the tip” of a complex internal network of nerves that can be up to eight inches long. In not-at-all emasculating related news, the average penis is 5.1 inches.

The model will be 3D printed and used by teachers all over France for sex ed in both primary and secondary school, because you’re never too young to start learning how to bang properly.

Meanwhile, in America, we just stopped giving federal funding to programs that teach girls they’re chewed up pieces of gum if they do the deed before they are married in Christ. God help us in the coming fuck wars.
