The best part of this clip from last night's finale of PBS' Sex in the Wild is when anatomist Dr. Joy S. Reidenberg, standing a few yards away from a dead beached sperm whale, shouts, "Can you see the penis?!" Penis ahoy!
Reidenberg proceeds to enthuse about the wonders of the boneless sperm whale penis while wagging it around in her arms like a fire hose that just turned on. "It's actually, probably the most amazing penis in the animal world!" she gushes. She explains the advantages of having such a prehensile appendage. When she says, "Ultra-humongous penis," it's as though her enthusiasm is welling up from deep in her soul. This plays like a sketch Melissa McCarthy would do on SNL.
I kid because I'm right there with her. Forget Looking, people like me finally have some relatable representation on television.
Also on this episode, a discussion about gay dolphin sex, although sadly, no actual gay dolphin sex:
Use this clip, though, next time you find yourself in an argument with a bigot who says that gay isn't natural. Dolphins do it, and when the tides rise, they're going to take over the world anyway.
