"Her" Erection (1991)


Prinny Alaví

Prinny Alaví was astonished to discover that many women in the 1980s did not know where their clitorises were located and did not believe they experienced clitoral erections. She created this poster and a series of "'Her' Erection" pins and greeting cards to show that "women get erections, too!"
