It was bring-your-daddy-to-school week, and there I was in my daughter’s kindergarten class. I distinctly remember struggling to explain to a bunch of few-year-olds why what I do really is cool and interesting, or even useful.

I don’t think I succeeded, not even with her.

And that scares me.

Fun “science”: Contrary to what intuition might tell you, the muscles in a male’s penis are most tense when it is limp. During arousal, the muscles relax greatly and this results in openings which cause an inflow of blood some 50 times what it was, leading to an erection.

Yes, tense muscles—limp. Relaxed muscles—turgid. Chew on that.
