For certain populations, education through anatomical stuffed toys can create a more relaxed environment in the lecture, workshop, or class because they seem more approachable and amusing than medical diagrams. At The CSPH, we have a collection of these items (ranging from adorable and hand-made to professionally constructed medical models), so we invite you to come by and take a look!
Some can be purchased on Etsy.com through individual sellers, others have their own websites, and the rest have been custom-made for the CSPH by friends and supporters.
For those of you who prefer posters, fear not; we also carry some on-site!
While Dan Savage may not like the butt puppet he saw on Etsy, we here at The CSPH love our super large model. With a retractable external sphincter, this bottom starts off tense and puckered, but once you encourage relaxation and breathing (then let the elastic slack a little!) – the sphincter loosens up.
The rectum also has a built-in window so you can see this all happening from another angle. You can also see (and feel!) the prostate, represented by a little cluster of buttons with elastic inside the puppet. This prostate is detachable so it can be moved around in order to better show folks where it’s located and how to stimulate it.
This line of plush models carries a variety of internal organs and glands, but we’re particularly smitten with their reproductive set, which includes a testis (6.5″ x 5.75″), an ovary (7.75″ x 6.25″), the prostate (7.5″ x 6.5″) and mammary glands (6.5″ x 5.5″). The CSPH also has a uterus to fully complete the set.
Hand made in lush velvets and silk satins, Dorrie Lane’s gorgeous celebrations of feminine essence are soft, receptive and visually delightful. Rather than evoking embarrassment, Wondrous Vulva Puppets encourage thoughtful dialogue, allowing a connection with the emotional and spiritual aspects of sex. Wondrous Puppets are used all over the world by educators, lovers, artists and healers to support gentle, non-threatening and humorous expression of all aspects of feminine sexuality.
Cute, lightweight and portable, this uterus was purchased during a CLPP conference.

Portable, lightweight and appropriate for all ages.
