A boner for Kate

This one's just for you, Kate. From Pharyngula, we have a report on the genetic basis for the lack of a penile bone (baculum) in most male mammals. Fun and interesting penis facts:
  • Most men don't need that bone!
  • It is possible to fracture a penis. Top gals, the weight limit is 120 lbs. (I just made that up.)
  • Cat penises are barbed. Rrrrooowwrrr!
  • Foreskins secrete a neuropeptide which prevents complex synaptic connections in the brain necessary for any thought more complex than, Grog want woman. (Yup, I just made that one up, too.)
  • My nurse just told me she knew an anesthesiologist who claimed "his penis looked like Yul Bryner in a turtleneck."

Open thread to discuss your fun and interesting penis facts.

Ah. I see why you think my husband should be steered away from this blog.

Admit it--you just LOVE that theory of the generative bone that created eve. Connecting the bible and science always makes me tingle all over.

Yup, it thrills me to look at Karen and think, "God bless her, there goes my penis bone!"

My favorite RWA anecdote concerns a confrontation with a famous author over the word penis. For those of you who are not familiar with the throbbing manhood lovers in romance, the Sisters of the Immaculate Love Scene NEVER use the word penis, because it's a BAD word (and I freely admit I have been a very BAD girl since my first book hit ink.)

Anyway, at one of the Nat'l RWA cons I attended, I stopped in at a "Chat With Linda Howard." Linda is a very popular writer and much beloved by anyone who likes no bullshit writing.

During the course of the chat, one of the Sisters of the Immaculate Love Scene went up to the audience and demanded to know WHY Linda Ms. Howard the horrid p-word in her books (this was before erotica got big.)

Linda smiled a little and in her gorgeous southern magnolia accent said simply, "'Cause I like 'em."

I have been this woman's devoted reader ever since. :)

Sheila, I imagine this Sister blushing & saying, "Well, I never!"

To which Ms. Howard could reply, "I'm not surprised."

George Carlin says that bald-headed white men look like penises.

This post just made me think of that. [shrugs].
