Purely from the aesthetic point of view (now that the Aspirational Artist in me speaking…uh huh, spelt with capital As), the curves make for an eyeful.

So yes, I think all of us might have been lesbian if we were designed differently. On the other hand, most men would have been gay if it hadn’t been for. And humankind would have died a conceptual death without ever having been conceived.

The damn things do serve a purpose after all.
