restoring a sense of pleasure and dignity

Linked with Clinic to fight taboo of female mutilation. Added Febr. 18, 2011: E-Mail exchange about ClitorAid having been created by a “sect”.

Following the announcement made by Dr Foldes, OBGYN in France, stating that women and children of all ages who have suffered the atrocities of clitoral excision, or female genital mutilation the equivalent of male castration in its barbarity, now have the possibility to regain sexual pleasure and be whole once again, thanks to medical advances and scientific progress. Rael, the spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement decided to help as many women as possible to regain their sense of pleasure and founded Clitoraid, a private non-profit organization with the aim to sponsor those women who want to have their clitoris rebuilt … (full text Adopt a clitoris … ).

Our Goal: The goal of Clitoraid’s “Adopt a Clitoris” program is to create real, long lasting changes for women who have been forced to experience clitoral excision or genital mutilation against their will. To rebuild the female clitoris, a local anesthetic is applied so no pain is experienced when the surgeon uncovers the root of the original clitoris left after the excision. This root and tissues will become the new clitoris. The procedure takes 6 weeks for a woman to completely heal, with sexual pleasure and genetic normality being the end result.

Most of the women in Burkina Faso cannot imagine having the money for such an operation. For most of them, it would be like spending two year’s salary!

Clitoraid is committed to provide these operations for free to as many women as possible. We will minimize our operating cost to the minimum, having mainly benevolent people involved in the whole process. But in order to provide such a service to the millions who have been mutilated, we need your help. By adopting a clitoris, (in part or in full) you can return the female body to its true form, which was denied them by unconscious thought and barbarianism. Imagine all the young girls who are dreaming to be whole again. You can make this wish come true, and be fundamental in the cease and desist of clitoral mutilation of the future!

“My elder sister woke up very early that day and started boiling water on the wooden fire. When the women arrived, my sister tricked me and asked me to go and give a bar of soap to the old woman in the bathroom; so silly of me. I ran there to do it fast and once in front of the toilets, two of the women grabbed me by the arms and put me down on the floor. One was seated on my belly holding my two wrists on my chest, the two others were holding my feet and the old one was in the middle and they excised me and cut my clitoris away without anesthesia. It took me two months to heal…”

Banemanie was thirteen when it happened to her. She is now 50 and she was one of the first to call Dr. Lankouade, one of the doctors trained by Dr Foldes, to be operated on. She is now able to feel new sensations in her rebuilt clitoris.
The association “Femmes de Coeur” founded by Banemanie a few years ago to help women develop their leadership abilities is the local correspondent of Clitoraid in Burkina Faso. It will now promote throughout the country, in every community, the possibility for women to have the surgery performed. Banemanie will report regularly on the number of women who have had the surgery performed and progress made in regaining their sense of pleasure … Thanks to your donations … Come and visit us often and check on what we have been able to achieve.
