Female genitalia are female sex organs or primary sexual characteristic, narrowly defined, any of those parts of the body (which are not always bodily organs according to the strict definition) which are involved in sexual reproduction and constitute the reproductive system in an complex organism; namely:
- Vulva (notably the clitoris and its covering the clitoral hood), vagina (notably the cervix), uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, Skene's glands, Bartholin's glands.
More generally and popularly, the term female sex organ refers to any part of the body involved in erotic pleasure. The larger list would certainly include the anus and the breasts, especially the nipples.

Female genital mutilation
Female circumcision is a term that loosely refers to a number of procedures performed on the female genitalia and which are generally of a cultural, rather than medical, nature. It is a very nearly universal practice in parts of Africa and is frequently practiced in the Arabian Peninsula and Asia.
The practice is rejected within Western Civilization, where it is usually regarded an unacceptable and illegal form of involuntary body modification and is often called female genital mutilation (FGM). --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_circumcision [Sept 2004]
