The Daily Squeeze: Black-Footed Ferrets, Sex Ed Videos, Sports Fans, And Yigal Azroul Condoms

  • Two black-footed ferrets at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo gave birth to “kits” (baby ferrets). The really interesting part of this story is that the kits fathers are both dead — one died in 1999 and the other in 2000. Since the species is endangered, the female ferrets were artificially inseminated with frozen semen from the dead males. [LiveScience]
  • Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette in Portland, OR, launched a site of sex ed videos called Take Care Down There in April. One of the segments is titled, “Horse Penis Virus.” [ABC News]
  • Twenty-five percent of sports fans surveyed by the website said they would give up sex for a month if their favorite sports team was guaranteed a major win. [Sify]
