Artist Sophia Wallace wants you to be Cliterate
Artist Sophia Wallace has embarked on a project titled “Cliteracy” designed to raise awareness of the clitoris.
The project is also designed to challenge traditional views and myths surrounding female sexuality. Below, Wallace discusses her motive for creating the project.

"It is a curious dilemma to observe the paradox that on the one hand the female body is the primary metaphor for sexuality, its use saturates advertising, art and the mainstream erotic imaginary. Yet, the clitoris, the true female sexual organ, is virtually invisible," Wallace told Creem magazine earlier this year.
"Even in porn, the clitoris is treated as this optional, kind of freaky, ‘wow he’s doing her this huge favor’ thing," she told HuffPost, adding that women often feel "embarrassed" to ask their partners to pleasure them. "It’s insane to me that this is still happening in 2013."
