Sea Slug Has Disposable Penis

Post  guest... on Thu Jun 06, 2013 3:44 pm

A sea slug's unusual mating behavior -- it discards its penis after copulation, grows a new one, and has sex the next day -- is reported in the latest issue of Biology Letters.

The sea slug, Chromodoris reticulata, is a type of soft-bodied marine mollusk, and its disposable penis is very rare in the animal kingdom.

As for what happens after sex ... "The penis just falls off," lead author Ayami Sekizawa told Discovery News.

Can you imagine this in humans, "oh darling lets do it again, oh my god its fallen off"
"Its alright love give me 24 hours and I will be back up again"
