The Clitoris Forbidden Pleasure 2003 Fixed
Reviewed by: The Clitoris: Forbidden Pleasure Lesley A. Hall The Clitoris: Forbidden Pleasure. Directed by Stephen Firmin and Variety Moszynski. First Run/Icarus Films, 2003. There is something a little ironic about subtitling a documentary purporting to present a new and positive view of the clitoris "Forbidden Pleasure." Less sensationally, the story this video tells is about the invisibility and neglect of the clitoris, at least in Western culture (there is not really any consideration of cultures beyond Western Europe, North America, and Australia). It conveys a certain amount of basic information about the history of understanding of the clitoris, its role in female sexual pleasure, and the present state of research into this still relatively little investigated organ. It might therefore serve as a useful introduction to the subject and provoke discussion.
