I have always wondered……what is so embarrassing about women’s private parts?

Am asking because in my entire life and mind you am over 30years, I have never heard that someone has been arrested for insulting the modesty of a man, it is always about being arrested for insulting the modesty of a woman…..what is so special with women’s genitalia?

Does anyone know?

Because life comes to earth through that special thing. Mind you, it is also that special thing men run for.
