Clitorosity is a community-driven effort to celebrate the full structure of the clitoris. We create large scale public chalk drawings to spark conversations, spread awareness and foster community around the world.
Stay tuned! As our community grows, we are exploring new ways to continue the conversation. We are open to collaboration with people and organizations that want to partner in our mission to celebrate the clitoris - we would love to hear from you.
1. Why does Clitorosity draw clitorises on the ground?
There are billions of people with clitorises, yet this part of the body remains largely misunderstood. The clitoris is often regarded as a mystery and as a small structure external to the body.
We want to change that. The clitoris can be mapped out, and its function can be explained like any other organ. Whether or not you have a clitoris, it is time to inform ourselves and others about one of the most sensitive parts of the human body.
2. Who is involved in Clitorosity?
It’s integral to Clitorosity’s mission to work with people who know the city, speak the language and understand the culture. We have collaborated with 88 amazing people to determine what is relevant and meaningful to draw in their communities.
Together, we’ve brainstormed locations and designs, translated messages and sayings, brushed up on our sidewalk chalk skills, and chatted with strangers on the streets about our drawings. We’ve drawn over 100 clitorises in 18 states and 5 countries!
3. Who is Clitorosity for?
Clitorosity is for everyone. Even if you don’t have a clitoris or aren’t interested in sexually engaging with someone who does, we hope to inspire you to learn more about your own body and to celebrate its capacity for pleasure.
Everyone has a voice in this conversation. When we speak, we aim to use language that recognizes that biology does not equate to any gender or sexuality. We are always looking for feedback on how we can make our language and projects more inclusive!
4. How did Clitorosity start?
After giving talks to hundreds of people on her college campus on the clitoris and sexual communication, Laura Kingsley realized how surprised and shocked the majority of the people were when they saw an anatomical clitoris diagram for the first time.
She dreamt of a collaborative, creative, and temporary way to spark more of these conversations and spread awareness about the clitoris. In October 2016, a group of women joined Laura to draw the first clitoris in Washington Square Park in New York City.
