The Dilemma of Desire

by Maria Finitzo Hashtag #letSEXplore

What do we really know about female desire? Biologist Stacey Dutton teaches students about the physical structure of the clitoris; psychologist Lisa Diamond dispels age-old myths about women's desires; industrial designer Ti Chang develops elegant vibrators; and conceptual artist Sophia Wallace illustrates why the clitoris is so important to the orgasm. They have all made it their mission to create a new awareness of the female body, and to dissolve prejudices. The documentary profiles a series of unstoppable women who defy patriarchal ignorance and celebrate female pleasure.
