VA WOW CondomMaybe you’ve heard about the legendary “C-V Distance”? No, this has nothing to do with your resume, your level of physical fitness, or probability and statistics. This time it’s the distance between a woman’s clitoris and her vagina.

Back in February, Kim Wallen, a professor at Emory University, reanalyzed measurement data of women and discovered a correlation between distance and ability to orgasm during penile-vaginal intercourse.

These people are dedicated to providing surgery to women who involuntarily underwent female genital cutting, to help restore their genital functioning and sense of pleasure. From Clitoraid.com:

The goal of Clitoraid’s “Adopt a Clitoris” program is to create real, long lasting changes for women who have been forced to experience clitoral excision or genital mutilation against their will. To rebuild the female clitoris, a local anesthetic is applied so no pain is experienced when the surgeon uncovers the root of the original clitoris left after the excision. This root and tissues will become the new clitoris. The procedure takes 6 weeks for a woman to completely heal, with sexual pleasure and genetic normality being the end result.

What brave and amazing work to be doing, to allow women to experience genital pleasure again! Maybe you want to “Adopt a Clitoris”?
