The clitoris: Explained

What we all may think is the clitoris - is just the tip of the iceberg. 

Did you know ‘the bean’ is actually 8-10cm and has eggplant-shaped bulbs and legs which wrap around the vagina.

What’s wild is we didn’t even have an official map of the clitoris until 2005 - which means we figured out how to put man on the moon and clone sheep earlier!

The Good Sex Project podcast host Melody Thomas is on a mission to get you cliterate.

The Good Sex Project is an eight-part podcast series about how we can figure out how to have good sex and relationships.

This series is produced by Popsock Media and Stuff with video content from Re: News.

Good Sex Project was made with support from NZ On Air.
