Hermaphrodite Sea Slug Mates With Throwaway Penis

A bizarre, hermaphrodite sea slug may give new meaning to the word "quickie." The nudibranch uses a disposable penis to have sex more frequently, according to a new study.
The animal, described today (Feb. 12) in the journal Biology Letters, is the first discovered to use an easily regenerated, disposable penis.
Nudibranches are simultaneous hermaphrodites, meaning that they have penises that they use to fertilize others as well as female sex organs. But exactly how their sex worked remained a mystery.
To find out, Ayami Sekizawa, a biologist at Osaka City University, and his colleagues collected specimens of the nudibranch Chromodoris reticulata while scuba diving off Okinawa, Japan. They then put 31 pairs of the creatures together in an aquarium and watched as they mated.
When the sea creatures copulated, they unfurled part of a long penis coiled up like a fire hose inside their bodies. The creatures then simultaneously penetrated one another with their penises (which are covered in backward-pointed spines), and after tens of seconds to a few minutes of sea slug sex, separated.

I thought this article was about a sea slug mistaking a pre-loved dildo for its own species and trying to mate with it...

I'm not the only one right?

Hey, the only man I ever loved turned out to be a woman who had me arrested for wanting to make love. Bob, an autogeniphilick, a man errotically obscessed with himself as a female. Sex with him was much like this as described.
