The story behind the O! Pendant

* EDUCATE * SUBVERT * ENTRENCH *

These are the three words I’ve chosen to define what The O! Pendant is about. Here’s why…

Initially The O! Pendant was going to be called The Clit Pendant. But I couldn’t call it that. At least, not if I wanted to broaden my reach outside of my strong, but small, readership.

Online marketing stores couldn’t stock it, mainstream shops wouldn’t support it, and Facebook would certainly not allow any advertising for it.

Why not?

Well, it turns out the word ‘clit’ is pretty scary for people.

And I’m not sure I can blame ‘people’, because, until someone wakes up, they’re just following what they’ve learnt from The System.

You know, The System: the good normal, that heteronormative patriarchal shit-storm of misogyny and sexism, that’s worked pretty hard to ignore, forget and undermine women, their pleasure and their bodies.

Also, people confused ‘the clit pendant’ for pendants made to attach to the actual clitoris.

So I went for the next best thing: O!

 

O!
because the clitoris is a pleasure centre, an complex, dynamic sex organ with no other purpose than to provide pleasure and a beautiful gateway to orgasm.

O!
because ‘ooooooooh’ is the sound you’ll hear most people make when they ask you about the pendant around your neck. Sometimes the ‘oh!’ will be full of delight and recognition, sometimes it’ll be curious and cautious, disparaging and disgusted, or shocked and awkward.

 
 
Either way, you need to know that when you wear The O! Pendant, you will be helping to educate people about what the full, beautiful structure of the clitoris looks like, you’ll be subverting the mainstream in getting this information out there regardless of how platforms want to censor this, and you’ll be entrenching our knowledge of the clitoris.
