Uncovering the Clitoris
This page exists to make the information on this web site about the clitoris easier to find.
You might wonder why I include items about about the clitoris in the version of the Leather History Timeline on EvilMonk.org --- or why I dedicate a whole web page to it --- since there's nothing specifically sadomasochistic about the topic or my examination.
But I hope no one thinks that I'm giving it too much attention to the clitoris. I'm only trying to give it the long overdue attention it deserves. I hope my focus does not become tedious or irritating.
