 (Flash fiction)


So, does it really matter if men don’t understand the clitoris?  Even women have to look at it in a mirror.  How many men get a mirror to look at their arse-hole?  Ok, bad example.

But is it any worse for a man not to “get” the clitoris than it is for a woman not to “get” the offside rule or map-reading? – skills far more practical.

After all, clitoriseses were only invented in the 1960’s by magazines like Cosmopolitan.  Certainly my mam and grandmas didn’t have one between them.

Whats a clitoris???

Ha!Ha! Only joking. Just thought I would open up a whole new avenue of tongue twisting conversation.
Research, converstion, touch, feel, imagination,sharing and patience come to mind. When looking to find and enjoy something.
Just like writing poetry.

Yes - you have a valid point there Laura :) By 'right partner' I meant one that was open minded to the way a woman's body really works and happy to factor that into the fun - rather than one totally oblivious or believing of all those porn films they like to watch...

Yeh but come ON Is - would you really wanna swap the serial multiple orgasm capability for something you can stand up to piss with?

As for the 'right partner' - see 'right hand' ;D Or 'marital aids' as they so quaintly used to be called! :D Still makes me chuckle that.

'Would that we males had one so simple, so uncomplicated'

Looking at it from a female perspective, I'd say that men are the ones who are lucky - their organs function so easily - as part of the whole reproductive process. It's all in the mind for a woman - which means you really have to get the right partner - all in all a huge design flaw, I think.

It's the only organ on the human body designed purely for pleasure! Would that we males had one so simple, so uncomplicated. And a recent piece in Cosmo - I get it delivered and put it in velour-bound folders, cross-indexed for easy reference, by the way - said that the last sexual taboo was being performed by 96% of 'us'; turns out they were talking about female masturbation. Call THAT a taboo? I thought they meant anything-goes group parties, scat-munching and golden showers! And what about frottage? No imagination, some people.

John, have you noticed only men have answered this poem?
Oh, and for the record, there's nothing wrong with my map reading!

Clitoris - sounds like somewhere you might go for a holiday in the Aegean!! :-)
But let's hear it for the poor put-upon brain...the most important sex organ of the lot.

BOY: "Dad, what's the correct term for a woman's most sensitive erogenous zone?"

DAD: "I can't remember son. Funny, cos it was on the tip of my tongue last night."

(Apologies for old joke.)

Hope you've got your tin hat handy John! :)
