What Does The Clitoris Look Like?

Finally, there's an anatomically correct 3D model available!

France is making strides in educating their students on sex and the female reproductive system, specifically the clitoris, and we could not be more envious.

The “world’s first open-source anatomically correct 3D printed clitoris” was revealed in August 2016, with the model including crura (or legs), bulbs, foreskin, and a head.

It’ll be introduced to schools all over France so students as young as six years old can learn from an accurate representation of the clitoris. Sociomedical researcher Odile Fillod created the model because “it’s important that women have a mental image of what is actually happening in their body when they’re stimulated. In understanding the key role of the clitoris, a woman can stop feeling shame.”


Fillod continues, “It’s also vital to know that the equivalent of a penis in a woman is not a vagina; it’s her clitoris.” When women are aroused, we also get erections. We just don’t see it happening because the clitoris is internal.

Fillod felt the need to create an anatomically correct model of the clitoris because of the startling inaccuracies found in school textbooks—something we can definitely relate to. There’s no denying that our sex education curriculum (if you can even really call it that) needs a serious makeover. While we respect those who choose to abstain from sex before marriage, we also believe that young Pinays can benefit from knowing all their options, understanding their own bodies, and having the opportunity to get answers to questions they might be afraid or ashamed to ask their parents.
