The Clitoris

  • Canada
Audio Tracks 

Women are lucky, they get to have the only organ in the human body dedicated exclusively for pleasure: the clitoris! In this humorous and instructive animated documentary, find out its unrecognised anatomy and its unknown herstory. The purpose of this short-animated documentary is to demystify female sexuality by discovering the anatomy and functioning of this organ, its history and its ‘discovery’ by male doctors, its role in the female orgasm and its function as a tool of empowerment for women.
