Pinnochio was receiving complaints from his girlfriend about his sexual performance. She said, “Every time we make love, I get splinters.”
So he went back to his maker, Gepetto the carpenter, for advice. “Sandpaper, my boy. That’s what you need,” was the carpenter’s response.
A couple of weeks later the carpenter met Pinnochio, “How are you getting on with the girls now?” he asked.
“Who needs girls?” replied Pinnochio.
