Gloria Steinem’s Clitoring & 5 Other Anatomy-Inspired Accessories We Love

by Evelyn Chapman

When Brooklyn-based artist Caledonia Curry, AKA “Swoon,” found herself at a table with activist, writer, and all-around goddess Gloria Steinem, she literally gave her the ring off her finger. We are all green with envy. It was the all too perfect scenario of meeting your feminist role model while wearing a vagina-inspired accessory and having the gusto to be like, “Gloria Steinem, will you wear my clit ring?” (Okay, so she probably didn’t say those exact words, but we can dream.)

The “Clitoring” was re-gifted to Steinem after being given to Caledonia Curry by Penelopijones at a dinner the night before. (But we’re sure Steinem doesn’t mind, as she is not Emily Post.) These anatomically-correct silver and gold rings are handcrafted to celebrate the beauty of the internal clitoris—the only organ in the human body with no other function than to feel pleasure.

We love our boob-tacular accessories; in the same vein, here are a few of our favorite items that pay tribute to our other lady parts.

These earrings by Later Operator are the perfect combination of antique and un-antiquated.

Not anahis necklace by Snark Factory says it all.

This iPhone case by Ampule is a genius incorporation of leather and lips (yes, those lips.)

These studs by VulvaLoveLovely are elegant and subtle; what better way to represent the majesty of your nether region?

You may even get away with this pussypouch by Damnsel at work. It’ll be our little secret.

And, of course, the infamous “Clitoring”!
