Love Your Body: The Clitoris

Friday/Date Day

Loving your body means knowing all the wonderful parts.  This is a fun video about the "history" of the Clitoris. Watch it - and watch it with your children.

Psychologists remind us that it's important to teach our daughters and sons about the clitoris.  The clitoris is central to a woman's ability to orgasm and find pleasure.  And understanding one's own clitoris, or the clitoris of your partner, is essential to understanding sexual consent.  Knowledge about her clitoris gives a girl a sense of agency over her own body, and a boy a better understanding of how to be a good partner.

Artist Sophia Wallace reminds us of the importance of "Cliteracy," and the ability to orgasm. You can see more of her artwork here.
