Storyline

Manya Mabika, a Somalian model, wants the surgeons to give her an orgasm by reverting her traditional female circumcision as a girl, even if the experimental technique for an artificial clitoris is highly unreliable. Macho Christian proves a far better 'parent' for Wilbur then his nymphomaniac mother Gina; when he refuses to have a baby with her, she uses Wilbur as blackmail leverage. Sean and Julia have good sex, but he cannot accept she doesn't get an orgasm. Patient Elias Perri has absolutely no body-hair, and is pushed by his life-coach, Ava Moore, to try a donor-hair transplant to erogenous zones. Sean makes an appointment for Julia with Ava, who gets into a row on the value of therapy with Julia's mother, Dr. Erica Noughton. Once she has her fake clitoris, Maniya asks Dr. Troy to be her 'true healer' in bed- when she gets no orgasm, he insists with Sean to revise her clitoris, but all it really takes is a lesson in female self-pleasing by Liz. Christian is shocked to find Gina ... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Sean McNamara: [discussing patient Manya Mabika, who wants reconstructive surgery on her genitals to reverse a childhood clitoridectomy] We're talking about microsurgical free tissue replantation. It can't just look pretty, it's gotta work!
Christian Troy: You might be more adept at nerve reattachment Sean, but I am a goddamn genius when it comes to pussy. If I build it, she will come.
