LAS VEGAS, Feb. 6 – On Feb. 6, the United Nations’ Zero Tolerance Day for victims of female genital mutilation (FGM)​, the humanitarian organization Clitoraid will send its recovering patients a "Womanizer" vibrator donated by its inventor, Mickael Lenke.

“Using that vibrator will be part of our patients’ post-operative therapy following clitoral restorative surgery,” explained Clitoraid Spokesperson Nadine Gary. See video

She said Clitoraid's volunteer surgeons, Dr. Marci Bowers and Dr. Harold Henning, have successfully operated on over 250 FGM victims since 2009.

“The surgery and postoperative therapy restored their dignity as women,” Gary said, adding that her organization’s revolutionary charity stems from the humanitarian vision of international spiritual leader Maitreya Rael.

“His pacific, atheist philosophy advocates women’s rights, including the inherent right to sexual pleasure,” Gary explained.

FGM, also called genital cutting, affects 130 million women in the world today according to the WHO.

“This gruesome practice consists of mutilating the genitals of little girls, particularly the clitoris,” Gary said. “It’s usually performed without anesthesia, and it’s done to deny sexual pleasure. The intent is to turn women into chaste, subdued and faithful wives.”

But husbands don't like having an FGM wife, Gary pointed out.

“Thousands of victims reach out to Clitoraid, begging us to make them whole again and save their marriages,” she said.

During the past two decades, science has significantly updated anatomical knowledge of women's genitalia.

“For the first time in history, the clitoris has been properly mapped, revealing an organ far more voluminous than previously thought,” Gary explained. “Its visible glans is only the tip of a massive amount of pleasurable tissue. That makes genital mutilation a reversible condition, and French urologist Dr. Pierre Foldes launched a revolutionary surgical technique for FGM survivors.”

Clitoral restorative surgery requires post-op therapy, Gary said.

"The touchless technology of the Womanizer vibrator will help our patients recover pleasurable sensations without irritating the clitoral tissue the way other vibrators tend to do after surgery,” she said. “And Michael Linke says he will modify the technology of his vibrator and adapt it to our patients' needs after getting their feedback."

Clitoraid is planning a humanitarian surgical mission to Kenya in May.

“Over 50 FGM patients are awaiting surgery there,” Gary said. “We hope to introduce Mr. Lenke’s post-op therapeutic device to those patients.”

LAS VEGAS, April 28 – To celebrate its annual Clitoris Awareness Month during May (which coincides with Masturbation Month*), the non-profit organization Clitoraid will launch a new campaign, MY BODY, MY CLITORIS.

“This campaign will invite women to revere their magnificent anatomy and transcend beyond millennia of sexual shame and guilt,” said Clitoraid Spokesperson Nadine Gary.

She explained that Clitoraid provides clitoral restoration surgery to victims of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). The organization launched “Clitoris Awareness Month” 3 years ago to address the problem of culturally sanctioned FGM.

“FGM is more prevalent in some areas of the world than others, such as in West Africa, North Africa and the Middle East, but this horrific practice is a worldwide problem,” Gary said. “It’s time for all women to embrace their sexual self-esteem and uninhibited sexual expression!”

She said that as part of May’s planetary celebration, women are invited to -email- an anonymous, proud picture of their vulva and clitoris, regardless of age, race or sexual orientation.” The resulting collage will be part of a grand art project presented during Clitoraid’s free international online webinar, My Body My Clitoris, to be held on Saturday, May 7 from 7-8 p.m. (EST). Access is totally free of charge - click here for access).

“The webinar will feature an international panel of guests speakers, including Dr. Marci Bowers and Dr. Betty Dodson both experts in female sexuality,” Gary said. “We’re so pleased that they can share their expert knowledge concerning women’s sexual pleasure.” She added that sensual meditation advocates Florence Laudoyer and Shizue Kaneko “will share in the art of pleasuring oneself with hands and toys while accessing the nectar of one’s femininity.”

Gary explained that sensual meditation is a technique developed by spiritual leader Rael (rael.org), whose humanitarian vision paired with science inspired the creation of Clitoraid.

“He is the author of the book ‘Sensual Meditation,’” Gary said. “He wrote, and I quote, ‘The human being is linked by his or her receptors, the senses, to the infinite, which surrounds and composes him or her. By developing one’s sensuality, one develops one’s capacity to feel connected with the infinite, to feel infinite oneself.’”

* In May 1994, former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders advocated teaching teenagers about masturbation as an alternative for those who were sexually active. Dr. Elders was fired by the Clinton administration for this innovative statement, but May has been deemed “Masturbation Month”.

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 6 – Clitoraid, an international, U.S.-based humanitarian organization that provides clitoral repair surgery for survivors of female genital mutilation (FGM), today announced its new partnership with the Gambian NGO 'Safe Hands for Girls.'

“As the world celebrates Zero Tolerance Day for FGM, we’re so very honored that Jaha Dukureh, head of Safe Hands for girls, has asked us to partner with her organization,” said Nadine Gary, director of communications for Clitoraid.
“We’ll now be working together to provide medical relief for FGM survivors by offering clitoral restorative surgery in the Gambia.”

Gary said Dukureh was born in the Gambia, where she endured genital mutilation as a child. She later became a celebrated FGM activist in her country and was nominated to be its Woman of the Year in 2015.

“Two months ago, her fight against FGM led to the passing of a historical bill banning FGM in the Gambia,” Gary said.
"And over the holidays, while Jaha was recovering from her own clitoral repair surgery in San Francisco, she received official papers from the Gambian government granting her the land on which to build an FGM medical center. She was told that the Gambian president had personally selected it!"

Gary said Clitoraid’s volunteers, including Clitoraid's lead surgeon Dr. Marci Bowers, who operated on Dukureh, are looking forward to the joint venture.

“This is a life-saving, life-changing humanitarian joint mission, one that is supported by the government of the Gambia, and we hope it will inspire the newly elected president of Burkina Faso to have his health minister issue the permit for Clitoraid's hospital to finally open in Bobo Dioulasso,” Gary said. “Our brand new, state-of-the-art medical facility has remained closed for 2 years while thousands of FGM survivors desperately await this life-saving, life-changing humanitarian treatment.”
