This funny and provocative documentary challenges the double standards of women’s sexuality. Women’s bodies are used to sell practically everything, but women’s actual desires are ignored and demonized. Following four pioneering women in the fight for “cliteracy," The Dilemma of Desire features a neuroscientist, an artist, a medical doctor, and an industrial designer of vibrators as they fight against male-dominated medical biases that shortchange the power of the clitoris and its role in sexual pleasure.
