Robin Bougie joins Kevin, Toren, and Joe for a special sexy (and therefore EXPLICIT) episode. What are phimosis and paraphimosis? How about penis fencing and docking? How do you get pandas in the mood? How the heck can porcupines mate with all those quills in the way? Find out all that and more!

Sorry for the late post, we took Canadian Thanksgiving off!

    Anteater?!?

    Being Canadian we referred to it as a ‘toque’.

    So you were ‘helmet’ or ‘toque’.

    Having read Cinema Sewer before, it was really cool to hear Mr. Bougie’s voice. He sounds so non-threatening and actually kind of adorable.

    Eagerly awaiting episode 2!

    I was surprised that when talking about dolphins that no one mentioned the proclivity of the Amazon River Dolphin to engage in nasal sex, where they penetrate one another’s blowhole.

    I shit you not.

    As an addendum to the animal section – So what is so interesting about banana slugs!? Well, these slugs are hermaphrodites, which means that they can act as both males and females at the same time. When they mate, they insert their penises into eachother at the same time. The unusual thing (in case you don’t find that unusual enough!) is that sometimes, but not always, when they finish mating one slug will chew the penis completely off the other, a process called Apophallation. Sometimes it happens that both slugs engage in chewing so that at the end of the mating encounter, both slugs are penis-less.

    I don’t know if you guys covered this story in the cannibalism episode, but this is a classic example of bizarre sexual practices resulting in death:

    Also, the interface for submitting comments is fracking annoying. I didn’t hit “submit” yet for that last comment, and I don’t know how I managed to post it before I wanted to. And editing this comment is equally off-pissing. I can’t navigate in the comments section by mouse, because clicking into the notes section at all sends me back to the “website” field. People who normally navigate by keyboard might not notice it, but for those of us who navigate by mouse, it’s ridiculous!

    We did cover that guy in the Cannibalism episode, actually!
    I’ll check with Joe about comments weirdness

    I loved this episode. To add on to your bit on penile fractures, the most common cause is a girl-on-top misshap. If the penis slips out of the vagina and the woman moves down, the penis can strike the pelvis causing the fracture. Eww.
    Another interesting add on for things pulled out of rectums: A Coke bottle (the glass kind). It was interesting because when the X-Ray was taked, the lead-based paint made the writing of Coke-a-Cola super visable on the X-Ray.
