Finally, the clitoris is getting the attention it deserves, both from artists and medical researchers alike. And even more importantly, it’s getting an accurate, scientific, NOT dominated by males type of attention. Once associated with “foreplay,” a sexual term that is decidedly heteronormative, the clitoris is in fact the only known organ in the human body – and in this case specifically the female body – that exists solely for pleasure. That’s right, whether male or female, no other human organ is like the clitoris in that way. With around 8,000 nerve endings all packed into one relatively tiny spot (source: Psychology Today) the clitoris is an extremely sensitive and unique part of the female anatomy. Unfortunately, until quite recently it was largely ignored for medical research purposes in favor of the vagina, which actually has very few nerve endings in comparison. Why? Well, in part because of the sexist notion that women don’t desire sex as much as men do, and in part because of the sexist notion that the female body is mainly intended for reproduction. But the almighty clit prevails! And cliteracy is a real movement that is here to stay. In 2012, artist Sophia Wallace started her conceptual art project, “Cliteracy,” and it has since gained international media attention.
