The Thing About Ostrich Penises

Oh, the things I learn in a day of trolling the interweb for penis stories. Today, oh glorious day, I learned that the ostrich hard-on, unlike other bird erections, is of the blood vascular variety as opposed to a lymphatic type. If you are learned in the science realm, then you’ll know that reptiles and humans (proud members of the mammal family) also get blood vascular erections. Meaning blood flows to the penis and makes it hard. Interesting point being that ostriches may be the evolutionary erection link in the penile tree. Other important discovery: the most common form of bird sex is known as the “cloacal kiss.” This is when the girl and boy birds touch their cloaca (the small all-purpose orifices in the butt region) together so sperm can pass. In conclusion, I mostly just wrote this post to freak Amelia out. She hates birds and their penises. [io9]

Today’s Lady News: UVM Frat Asks Whom Brothers Would Like To Rape

  • The fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon at University of Vermont (UVM) has been busted for sending out a questionnaire amongst brothers which included the question, “If I could rape someone, who would it be?” It seems to be a joke — er, “joke” — considering how other questions on the survey included benign questions like the brothers’ names, birthdays, hobbies, and future goals. UVM students can sign a petition asking to disband the Sigma Phi Epsilon frat over this incident here. If we have any Frisky readers at UVM, I’d love to hear your take on the reaction on campus. [Safer Campus]

That’s how she looks at it.” Definitely read their fascinating story! [Boston Globe]
