French Researcher Wants to Make Sex Education More Accurate With 3D Printed Clitoris

French Researcher Wants to Make Sex Education More Accurate With 3D Printed Clitoris

Sex education varies greatly from school to school, location to location – some places don’t teach it at all, while others teach abstinence only; some schools are much more thorough in terms of discussing safe sex and birth control. I went to Catholic elementary school, and I remember getting a textbook called Gifts and Promises, a […]
