The word penis
is not as sexy
as the word vagina

Penis, does not have
the built-in implication
of its pending erection

While vagina has
within its sound
the implication

of being
open and

thereby dangling
desire on the penis
as bait

So, I wonder
if the female gender
would be pursuing the male

more often, if penis
were to be named

Oh no!
this takes us to the
Biblical narrative

when the serpent
was the culprit
who persuaded Eve

To eat the forbidden
Apple which made her
lose her innocence

— Abraham Menashe
