Symbols - What does heaven look like
Clement of Alexandria in his endearingly prudish way thought combs were symbolic of the genitals in women [he presumably had never seen the genitals of a woman otherwise he would know a comb looks nothing like them] and were used specifically for women who practise sexual stimulation as the means of obtaining spiritual experience, but kundalini energy can be generated by a number of means not just sexual stimulation.
Clement of Alexandria – Exhortation to the Greeks, 2.11-24; 12.118-20
………..and a woman's comb, which is a euphemistic expression used in the mysteries for a woman's secret parts'.
