If that's not true then why does the anatomy of the female orgasm have nothing to do with procreation?If God made women then He, She or It made women's sexual equipment for pleasure first-- and babies second. In other words the basic Christian doctrine of sex has to be that orgasms are intrinsically good and need no justification.The clitoris is outside the vaginal canal. So if God made us, or i … [Read more...]
