If you’re the kind of person who keeps up with their UFO spiritualists, you’ll know Raëlians as the group who believe that earth was created by a vastly superior alien civilisation. According to its French founder, a racecar driver / singer songwriter named Raël, the aliens (called Elohim) created humans in their own image and have been guiding us throughout history through the help of messengers—humans they’ve had special contact with. If you guessed these messengers include people with names like Jesus and Buddha, you guessed right.
But while that might sound far-fetched to some, they also believe in the importance of pleasure—sexual or otherwise—in the pursuit of spiritual growth. And that sounds pretty reasonable. This stance has lead them to create a non profit called Clitoraid, which champions reconstructive surgery for victims of female circumcision in the developing world. Next month they’ll open their first “Pleasure Hospital” in Burkina Faso where world-class surgeons will treat women for free, rebuilding their clitorores to give them the ability to orgasm. After speaking to Clitoraid’s smoky voiced French communications director Nadine Gary, it’s hard to deny that this sexy group of UFO enthusiasts are the best dudes in Africa.
