The saddest part about all of this is a woman's clitoris has only one function — it is there purely to give us pleasure. The clit solely exists to bring a woman to climax. It has no other purpose, just the one important function. So why all the embarrassment? The penis has multiple functions and men don't seem to have any embarrassment about using it for self-pleasure.
Though the stigma persists, at least there are some women out there who found the bravery to talk about the subject. Cyndi Lauper sang "She Bop" and The Divinyls sang "I Touch Myself." Like me, Cyndi believes that "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "there ain't no law against it yet." Granted, those songs came out back in the 80s. But, more recently Missy Elliott's song "Oops! (Oh My)" also helped bring the topic to light and put a more positive spin on it.
