Schools in France Will Use A 3D Clitoris To Teach Sex Ed To Kids

It's about time.

School kids in France are learning more now in sex ed classes than I did until I actually started HAVING sex as an adult. 

Thanks to 3D printing technology, a sculpture of the clitoris will be available for all school children learning about sex and reproduction. 

I've never thought of 3D printing as something that could be actually useful, let alone crucial to educating women about their bodies. This is pretty baller, and the USA should definitely take a page from France's book. 

When did you first learn about the clitoris? For me it definitely didn't happen during sex ed.

In fact, I think the first time I even heard the word was on some MTV show about dating where one woman said "all men need to be taught how to find the clitoris" during sex. I was baffled. What was the clitoris? Did I have one? Was it hiding? How could I be expected to give directions to it if I had no idea where it was myself?

It is also worthy of note that during this time I also learned about the G-spot from a Monty Python joke. Suffice to say my destiny as the world's greatest sex writer was truly writ in the stars. 

The hope in France is to erase the notion that the penis's female equivalent is the vagina. Rather, that the clitoris is the penis's not-so-evil twin. It makes sense. The clitoris is massive, not just the nub of flesh we were all led to believe it was for so long. Ever have a vaginal orgasm? Yeah well actually your clitoris was responsible for that wave of good feeling.

French researcher Odile Fillod is responsible for creating this revolutionary sculpture. She was inspired by the fact that she remembers a childhood of sex education much like mine: one where the clitoris wasn't mentioned, or was misrepresented. Fillod's goal is to transform not just the way children are taught about their bodies, but how they relate to their own sexuality and those of their partners. 

A healthy relationship with sex begins early on, and young men and women understanding what a woman's body is capable of could actually transform the way men and women relate to each other on a much broader scale. 

Suffice to say, I think this would be a brilliant thing to bring to the States, but given the current climate (re: TRUMP), I can't see a campaign for clit sculptures in the classroom being very, how you say, successful.
