what's long and hard and full of semen?

A squid, apparently.

Here's one not for the squeamish, from South Korea: A semi-cooked squid inseminated a woman's mouth, according to a paper published in the Journal of Parasitology. After experiencing "severe pain in her oral cavity" when she bit into her seafood, the woman spit out her meal but continued to feel a lingering "pricking" sensation.

Doctors found that the 63-year-old woman had "small, white spindle-shaped bug-like organisms" lodged in the mucous membrane of her tongue, cheek and gums.

Despite having been boiled, the dead squid's live spermatophores, or sperm sacks, were alive and penetrated the woman's mouth. The sacks, which contain ejaculatory devices, forcefully release sperm and a "cement" that attaches the sperm to a wall.

"Prick"ing sensation. Heh. Trust Korea to deliver the weird, fucked-up news.

"I'll have the cumshot special, please."

It's said that people become more sexually active after they've been exposed to life-threatening situations (such as 9/11). This demonstrates the close linkage of eros and thanatos, I think: the urge to reproduce in the face of death. They say a man becomes erect and even ejaculates when strangling, hence the clandestine popularity of auto-erotic asphyxiation (all hail the Carradine!). Are our molluscan brethren any different, really? By shooting its juice into a woman's mouth, was this dying squid doing anything a dying guy wouldn't have done?
