"The idea came in the context of preparing videos dealing in a non-sexist way with topics in an educational program concerning sex and sexuality. In textbooks, the clitoris is often ignored, and is systematically misrepresented when it is not. It was therefore a question of being able to show concretely what it is like to talk about the anatomical and physiological bases of sexual desire and pleasure, and not forgetting women for once. (...)

First, it was necessary to find scientific articles that give precise information on the anatomy of this part of the body that is infinitely less documented than its masculine equivalent, and to combine these sources which not always converge, in order to define the form and size of an average clitoris and its bulbs, then draw it in 2D with corresponding measurements. (...)

The default size corresponds to a realistic average, that is to say about 10 cm long if one goes from the end of the gland of the clitoris to one of its two roots. Because the body of the clitoris is bent, the total height of the object is about 7 cm."
