Hands or Paws or Anything They Got

Masturbation in the animal kingdom.

Isn't it wonderful when science and religion come together? My Slate colleague William Saletan points out that a recent paper has laid the groundwork for a pro-life defense of onanism. According to obstetrician David Greening, a rigorous program of daily masturbation can actually improve sperm quality in men with fertility problems. (Samples collected at the end of the program showed less DNA damage and higher sperm motility than samples from control subjects.) Since masturbation can help you have babies, Saletan argues, it must also serve the "procreative and unitive purposes" described in the Catechism. [continued]

Most DO have hairy palms!!......just like me hehehe;-)
I learned something very important from this: Turtle penis is gross.
Why the hell did anyone ever think to video tape an animal masturbating and put it on youtube?

And why weren't they flagged or something?
...with people and animals getting busy!

what's gonna happen when all those kittens decide to strike back?
Do i smell a link between this and all those mysterious spontaneous human combustion cases?
Wow! That's a lotta dead kittens!
Meanwhile,here is my favorite masturbating kangaroo video;
Maybe we should look at this differently. Aren't there too many cats in the world anyway? Shouldn't we be considering population control for cats? Maybe this is the solution!
Oh I agree! Definitely too many feral domesticated cats!
While we are at it instead of saying :"They breed like rabbits." We might say:"They breed like cats."
Now this is misleading. It takes a direct hit to kill a strong kitten. LOL
No where in the original translation of the Bible does it say "Thou shalt flog thy dolphin" Or remotely similar meaning.
It is proof of personal ideas being translated into modern translations and Christian belief systems.
Hypothetically,(if such a deity existed) I think god would rather us be wankers than rapists.
Because we are large animals we have large instincts to quell. It is part of what has keep us alive for so long.
I agree...And if there is a god why would he/she/it even CARE what we do with our nether reasons?
That is bloody brilliant.

Anyone know how the catholic church is addressing this? Masturbation Improves sperm quality...

....OOOOPS!!! If nature invented it..there's probably a reason for it..hahah. Silly catholics.

I can just see catholic men lineing up at the doctors....

Oh Lord, PLEASE let me have fertility problems, PLEASE let me have fertility problems, PLEASE!!!

WOOOOT!! I have fertility problems...ty Lord (Heads off to the bedroom to improve fertility)
