The clitoris is pure in purpose. It is the only organ in the body designed purely for pleasure. The clitoris is simply a bundle of nerves: 8,000 nerve fibers, to be precise. That's a higher concentration of nerve fibers than is found anywhere else in the body, inccluding the fingertips, lips, and tongue, and it is twice. . . twice. . . twice the number in the penis. Who needs a handgun when you've got a semiautomatic.
