These days, practically anything you can buy also has a penis-shaped version. But the genital-shaped-novelty-item industry still has a lot of catching up to do when it comes to vaginas. Sure, you can buy vagina-shaped candles:
Or vagina-shaped catnip toys:
Or even a vagina toaster:
But we still have a long way to go if we want to achieve true genital-shaped-novelty-item equality.
Fortunately, one company is doing their part to change that. Their (perfect) name? Clitter. Their game? Vagina-shaped confetti. Behold:
(And yes, it should be noted that technically these are all VULVA-shaped novelties.)
It’s that lack of vagina-shaped merchandise that inspired Clitter founder Veronica Moonhill to start her company. Her moment of realization happened during her own bachelorette party:
“There we were, a bunch of fabulous women speaking our truths and drinking wine, when I looked up and realized we were surrounded by dicks: penis straws, penis lollipops, pin the junk on the hunk and of course penis confetti. I thought, ‘Why are a bunch of powerful ladies sitting around celebrating dicks? That’s insane! It’s time we started celebrating VAGINA’s!'”
In each bag of Clitter, you will find three different confetti pieces, each honoring a different part of the female reproductive system.
Right now, Moonhill is hoping to raise $3,000 on Kickstarter to get Clitter off the ground. For a donation of just $8, you’ll get your very own bag of Clitter, plus some stickers. Moonhill plans to begin shipping in April 2018.
Clitter has all kinds of uses. Moonhill suggests keeping a bag in your purse so you can “make it rain” with a friend, pictured above. Or you could spruce up a birthday party with Clitter. Or you could “Clitter-bomb some bros who look like they couldn’t find a clit if their lives depended on it.” The possibilities are endless!
Maybe one day we will live in a Golden Age of vagina-shaped merchandise, but this is a great start.
