New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: 52 Films By Women: The Dilemma of Desire (2020)

By Andrea Thompson

If you didn’t know what you were getting into with the SXSW documentary “The Dilemma of Desire,” it gets right to the point by trying to find the clitoris in the original Gray’s Anatomy. (The MEDICAL book people, not the series. Get your mind out of the gutter.) Not only is it apparently nowhere to be found on the page it’s listed in the table of contents, but there’s also no pictures of female anatomy, while the male sexual organs, including the penis, are meticulously depicted. “It’s almost as if they wiped womanhood out of the text,” mused Stacey Dutton, a neuroscientist.
