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

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.

One of the best episodes EVER!
20 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode stands out for me because it has one of the most interesting and groundbreaking patient subplots of any Nip/Tuck episode. The idea of a woman who suffered female circumcision having her clitoris reconstructed is brilliant, and I simply love the way it ties in with both Sean and Christian struggling with their individual lives. The highlight is the twist at the end; Christian cannot get Manya to orgasm by having sex with her, but on Liz's instruction Manya does reach orgasm through masturbation. Brilliant and inspired writing, plus the introduction of Ava Moore, someone we'll be seeing a lot more of as the season progresses
