woman’s egg), Indiana University professor Elizabeth Lloyd has been studying the purpose of female climax for replica christian louboutin some time. Here’s what she found: The louboutin replica female orgasm promotes "pair bonding," which means a couple is more likely to pursue parenting; it’s a part of mate selection (a woman chooses her partner based on his ability to make her climax); and there is some belief that contractions during the female orgasm help draw sperm into the uterus.
