Dear Editor:

Francine Less is not alone in her disappointment at The Vagina Monologues [Letters, January 5]. I thought Eve Ensler played it safe by treating that organ almost exclusively as a toy or a metaphor, only briefly mentioning its function as an arena for childbirth and rape, and by basing the orgasm monologue's humor in tired ethnic stereotypes. But I was most surprised at the number of women who brought male companions, knowing that even the men who understood the jokes would be unlikely to laugh out loud at them.
