Also fascinating: the clitorides of spotted hyenae.


Hah! Yes. I just finished that. Someone on BB recommended Brin a couple months ago, so I picked it up.

Circle of life, etc.

Eee! I was at her talk this weekend! Dara Orbach was amazing. One interesting tidbit not found here is that the way she gets more dolphin reproductive organs is that people randomly send them to her. Usually semi-rotten.

Another cool detail: the nerve bundles they found in the dolphin clittorises were ten times larger than nerve bundles found in the human penis. Interestingly, we don’t have the relative data for the human female clittoris. We officially know more about dolphin clits than human clits.


… and thankfully unlearn. :slight_smile:
