Why throw out a perfectly good penis?

No relation to ER whatsoever, but I thought this was interesting.

Yeah, there's even a song about this. If you've had teenagers, you've probably been exposed to it.

How do you know it's perfectly good? It's used. The slug can grow another one, which is new and improved. Nice!

Bobbitt surely wished he had the same ability.

Sea slugs have it good compared to honey bee drones.

Quote:
Mating occurs in flight, which accounts for the need of the drones for better vision, which is provided by their large eyes. Should a drone succeed in mating he soon dies because the penis and associated abdominal tissues are ripped from the drone's body after sexual intercourse.

Ouch! Could this be (bee?) the reason for colony collapse? Bad design!

I think next time the OP needs to use a catchier title to a new thread.

Despite the Parental Advisory sticker on the album cover, there is no profanity in this song so I suppose it's relatively work-safe that is, as long as your co-workers and boss won't mind hearing the word "penis" repeated frequently.

Interesting. Just wondering what type of genetic trend took plaice here and why. It seems the hermaphrodite type won.
