Clit-me is a new mobile game aimed at demystifying female pleasure. Using a cartoon avatar of the clitoris, the game tells players about the history, anatomy and sole purpose of the clitoris: pleasure.

Clit-me is the creation of Montreal-based interactive school, Jeune Pousses and is jointly funded by the National Film Board of Canada and the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) as a yearly internship scheme.

Producer, Hugue Sweeney, and editorial manager, Valerie Darveau, brought together eight journalists, media creatives and graphic designers, and gave them $1,000 each to create this interactive ‘Metamorphoses’ project. During the development process the team realized their lack of knowledge around the clitoris and their desire was to fill the gap.

We’re just ignorant visually about what it is; we can’t even draw a simple form of it. So I think that was the interest — how can we close that gap of understanding? The goal of the project is not to cover every aspect of the subject. It’s to start a conversation.

Customize, Play & Learn

Understanding that everyone’s bodies are different, and every clitoris is unique, users are initially encouraged to customize their clit-avatar – choosing a face, hat, pubic hair style, and size. Did you know that the clitoris can measure up to a whopping 11cm?

You level up by learning and practising new motion techniques, (stroking, circles, tapping, pinching, multi-fingers) to make your adorable clit-avatar “happy”, or until it reaches orgasm. Once you have ‘recovered’, you can play again. The game only lasts around five minutes, which correlates well with the average four minutes it takes for women reach orgasm with clitoral stimulation.

Along the way of interactive fun, you also learn about the history and anatomy of the clitoris. Though it was technically discovered in 1599, it was only 3D mapped in 2015, and today most people still cannot identify or draw it.

What is repeatedly highlighted in the game is how big the orgasm gap is, where cis heterosexual women attain orgasm a lot less often than their male and lesbian counterparts.

While Clit-me is of course not going to close the orgasm gap in just five minutes, it does bring awareness to our lack of sexual education in a creative way where other apps have failed to do so due to censorship regulations.
