No help needed to find this clitoris.
Have you ever wondered if you needed to give your partner a map to find your clitoris? It can be frustrating to say the least, and it shouldn't be that difficult to locate. However, so often female sexuality/pleasure seems to be ignored or overlooked.
Having a 3D sculpture is fantastic but it's not nearly enough, so sexologists Marie-Noëlle Lanuit and Jean-Claude Piquard mowed an enormous clitoris into a crop field in the village of Montferrier-Sur-Lez (located conveniently next to a high school).
Can you find the clit now?
The motive behind the 400-foot clit crop circle was to raise awareness about female sexuality, though some locals thought the field was cut into the shape of an octopus.
Lanuit said in an interview with Midi-Libre, "The clitoris still has no visibility in biology textbooks. Either it's absent or it's included but with no mention that it's the organ of female pleasure. Female pleasure is taboo in the medical world. Only vaginal pleasure is taught where the clitoris plays a secondary role, with arguments that are often incompatible with anatomical data."
There are a ton of places on both men and women that serve as pleasure points, but they usually serve other purposes as well, such as a means for reproduction. But the clitoris has no reproductive purpose at all; it's just there to give women pleasure, which is something to be celebrated, and yet is often overlooked.
"[The clitoris] is sometimes named, but it is never drawn in textbooks in the complete form. In books, it is usually presented as a small bean," Lanuit said.
For the record, the external part of the clitoris is actually referred to as the glans. This part of the clitoris has over 8,000 nerve endings on it — twice as many as that of the average penis.
While you can look at the clitoris crop circle as a work of art or a statement piece, it's really a public service announcement. Let's hope it works and the clit starts getting the recognition it deserves. Maybe then it won't be so challenging to find.
