"For the uninitiated, it looks like an octopus or a Neolithic goddess," offers French jeweller, Anne Larue, on her timely clit-necklace creation. This, in conjunction with breaking medical technology news, suggests France is experiencing something of a clitorial fixation.

Basically, as of September, French schools will be using the world's first anatomically correct clitoris model for sex-education, from primary to secondary classes. Created by socio-medical researcher Odile Filloid, the printable 3D clit will be used to educate students on such interesting facts as:

1. The clitoris is made up of the same tissue as the penis.
2. It is divided into legs, foreskin (eww) and a head.
3. It is made of the same erectile tissue as a penis and is usually longer (around 8 inches).
4. It's the only part of the human body that has the single function of pleasure.

"It's important that women have a mental image of what is actually happening in their body when they're stimulated," Filloid explained to The Guardian. "It's also vital to know that the equivalent of a penis in a woman is not a vagina, it's her clitoris. Women get erections when they're excited only you can't see them because most of the clitoris is internal. I wanted to show that men and women are not fundamentally different."

She continues, "Understanding that they have an erectile system just like men, I think women will start to experiment more. They will understand that pleasure is not some magic that only a partner knows how to give." Amen, sister.

For those of you who do want to enlighten your significant other - good news. The blue-print of the sculpture is open-source, meaning it is free to be accessed and used by anyone. May we suggest accidentally leaving a copy lying around your partners place? Just saying.
