Comment of the Day: Creatures of Discomfort

Today we learned that there are many, many things that can go wrong during sex. Many more than 13! But sometimes we get so wrapped up in the article at hand that we completely miss the image that accompanies the post. One commenter demanded that we take a closer look.

From Esmerelda Foofypants:

I think it's cruel to use that picture for this particular article, insinuating that simply being a sexually active naked mole rat is cause for embarrassment.
I think as penance, Gawker needs to contribute to my charity organization, which specializes in providing teeny tiny sweaters to the naked mole rats of the world. (Not because naked mole rats should be ashamed of their nudity and cover it up, but because the poor little dears get awfully cold sometimes.)

Act now and help put a small sweater on a mole rat today.
