A scrotum is like a spare refrigerator in the garage just for beer. If you’ve got a spare beer fridge, you’re probably the type who expects a party to break out at any moment. You want to be prepared. A scrotum fulfills the same function. By keeping the testicles a few degrees cooler than they would be inside the body, a scrotum allows chilled spermatozoa to accumulate and remain viable longer, available if needed.
In a Central American crane-fly called Bellardina, the male sets the scene for his love-making by providing some background music. During mating, he rubs a scraper along a kind of washboard next to his penis, which sends a repeated humming vibration through the female’s nethers for the full duration of their embrace.
It doesn’t matter what position you’re in—reverse cowgirl, missionary, standing, whatever. Sperm + egg + sticking to the uterus = pregnancy.
The clitoris is pure in purpose. It is the only organ in the body designed purely for pleasure. The clitoris is simply a bundle of nerves: 8000 nerve fibres, to be precise. That’s a higher concentration of nerve fibres than is found anywhere else in the body, including the fingertips, lips, and tongue, and it is twice the number in the penis. Who needs a handgun when you’ve got a semiautomatic.
Get educated on sperm!
*not all men have penis/can produce sperm
That’s right, folks—sperm move faster than a jaguar and can live in the female reproductive tract for up to 5 days… This is why we keep going on and on about birth control.
Semen is not only nutritious, but it also has a wonderful texture and amazing cooking properties. Like fine wine and cheeses, the taste of semen is complex and dynamic. Semen is inexpensive to produce and is commonly available in many, if not most, homes and restaurants. Despite all of these positive qualities, semen remains neglected as a food.
That’s the blurb on the back of the cookbook Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes by Fotie Photoenhauer, discovered thanks to this Frisky article.
Would you try it?
Flatworms are hermaphrodites, meaning they have both male and female sex organs, which triggers some seriously odd reproductive behavior. When trying to impregnate another worm, for example, a flatworm tries to pierce the skin of the other using its penis. Experts term this heated competition “penis fencing”: The first to successfully impregnate the other while fending off advances becomes the de facto male, who wins because he won’t have to expend the energy required to carry eggs.

Whoa. This brings fighting as foreplay to a whole new level…
Patients almost always have the same look on their face when we talk about ovarian cysts. It’s that look of, ‘OMG, I have a ticking time-bomb in my pelvis!’ I worry that they imagine a giant green blob growing larger and larger inside them, like a Chia pet, that might one day suddenly explode.
The good news is that this imaginative view of an ovarian cyst is far worse than the reality. Many women will have an ovarian cyst at some point in their lives, and most won’t even know it.
