3d printed clitoris

If you have a 3D printer, you can print one for yourself.

Look at this clit/Isn’t it neat?/Wouldn’t you say this genitalia’s complete?

Now that you have those lyrics to the tune of “Part of Your World” from the Little Mermaid stuck in your head, seriously, look at this 3D-printed clitoris. Because if you thought the clitoris was just the little nub of skin you’ve never been able to find, think again.

The model is currently being exhibited at Fab Lab at the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie in Paris, and creator Odile Fillod wants it to be distributed around schools in France to improve sex ed. Which sounds a lot cooler than trying to put a condom on a zucchini in front of a bunch of other 12-year-olds. 

After multiple attempts to design a durable model, Fillod and her team were successful, and write, “The 3D-printed clitoris has already traveled a lot and is doing very well;)”

"The representations of sexuality are mostly centred on the male sexual organs," Fillod told Vice. "Practices that do not include an erect penis are not seen as 'real' sex... Whether a woman is excited or not or whether she has an orgasm or not plays no role in fertilisation—which apparently means it can be royally ignored." And as anyone with a clit can tell you, that leads to a lot of disappointing sex.

So, will the 3D clit make it into sex ed programs around the world, informing everyone that the clitoris is a large sex organ that works pretty similarly to a penis? Well, if you have a 3D printer, you can print your own here. Go ahead, educate yourself.

How the internet is taking the shame out of sex ed
I didn’t know women could masturbate until I learned it in sex ed. It wasn’t that I thought it was taboo or dirty, just that I thought the capability was reserved for penises, not vulvas. Once I learned, I didn’t carry shame about it (besides the typical teenage, please-don’t-let-my-parents-find-out type). But I got the sense that I should, that my casual enthusiasm of the act was somehow defiant. That even though I had learned it in sex ed, it was something I wasn’t suppo...
