My Weird Life

So tired .... my body is aching from lack of sleep, and plain ol' overwork. And the proverbial IN pile never seems to decrease, no matter how productive I am.

*sigh*

And, to make my life EVEN busier, I took on a little side project.

A friend of mine I made via Twitter, Dr. Debby Herbenick PhD, runs the website called My Sex Professor (Located here). In case you cannot tell by the name of her website, she is a sex health researcher with Indiana University.

Once day, over Twitter, she mentioned something about weird facts. So, I sent her one about how flatworms "penis fence," and she LOVED it.

She asked me if I knew any more weird animal mating facts.

Naturally, being the kind of guy who is obsessed with learning everything about animals he can, I said "ohhh yeah."

So, she invited me to Guest Blog.

And here is the final product, called "Weird & Wild: Five Ways Animals Get Creative About Sex."

It was a BLAST to research and write.

As I told someone earlier today, I really haven't had that much fun writing since I started J-school. Tells you something, doesn't it?

I hope you enjoy reading it, and let me know what you think!
