Vagina Monologues

Today I went to Fiona's and ended up helping her to clean one of the bedrooms. We found a copy of 'The Vagina Monologues' which she let me borrow. I have been reading it and it's brilliant, awesome in fact. You should certainly read this book. It's funny, poignant and celebratory. I love it. (Men and Women should read it)

Here is a short piece from the book.

Vagina Fact
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 endings to be precise. That's a higher concentration of nerve fibres than is found anywhere else in the body, including the fingertips, lips and the tongue...and it is twice...twice....twice the number in the penis. Who needs a handgun when you've got a semi automatic?

If the written word is not your thing - you can view some of the videos of pieces from the work here.
