How much do you know about the clitoris? Chances are, not enough. The vast internal structure tasked with sexual pleasure for half of the population has been largely ignored by a long history of western medical science written by men. But scientists, artists and activists with clits want to see that change. Biologist Dr. Stacey Dutton dispels age-old myths about women’s pleasure for her students, while “Pleasure Priestess” Coriama wants to see everyone’s erotic power restored. Entrepreneur and designer Ti Chang hopes people will wear their pleasure with pride, while artist Sophia Wallace has set out to make the world more “cliterate.” By demanding an end to the “phallucy,” The Dilemma of Desire reminds us that the revolution will be pleasurable.
