    How Men Lost Their Penis Spines - FoxNews.com

    Isn't evolution wonderful? Many mammals do have a barbed penis. As a fanfiction writer in the Star Wars canon, it's pretty well accepted that Devaronians have them too. And in fan fiction of the 'furry' variety, so do the canines and felines.

    Personally I am thankful for our present human conformation and the lovely gallery detailing the variety of penile splendour.

    As a vet student we mainly come across the spines in felines. In Domestic cats the scraping of the male's penis inside the female helps induce ovulation.

    (Cats don't have a menstrual cycle. They come into heat and when the female accepts the male, the act of intercourse induces ovulation)

    In lectures we've been told about cat breeders using mascara brushes to induce ovulation in their prize queens (female cats) which I think is barbaric.

    Lama's and Alpaca's have a single hook. (I think Vicunas's would too since they are all related).

    Dog's don't but they do have an os penis (a bone in the penis, cats have this too).

    I'm not sure about other animals though... I will do my research!

    Random fact for you, semen can survive in female bats (following intercourse) for up to 12 months and Camels ejaculate in pulses for up to 30 minutes. When I remember other random stuff I will come back :)

    P.S. If human men still had spines I think lesbianism would be more popular!
