clitoralectomy means: A cruel practice that involves removing the clitoris of women. Used in America to treat chronic masterbation from the 1800’s through early 1900’s. It is currently used as a preventative against promiscuity in Africa and the Middle East. Extreme methods include removing the labia, and sewing the wound to a small hole. Each child is given a new look by the husband, who stitches the wound. (in Community Dictionary, added by Oswaldo Cole)
