72 Virgin Guns

72 Virgin Guns

I don’t understand the male obsession with scoring a virgin. Unless it is the fragile male ego afraid he won’t ‘measure up’ to past lovers so seeks a person who has no reference to laugh in his face. I think that’s why Islam entices martyrs with hte promise of 72 virgins. The need for virgins […]
