Neil DeGrasse Tyson often presents himself as the ‘champion’ for science. He was chosen to host ‘Cosmos’ a few years ago and has his podcast now on television. Moreover, he often attacks religious people by insinuating that they do not know science. Well it seems that the tables are turned. He tweeted this:
If there were ever a species for whom sex hurt, it surely went extinct long ago.

Immediately, many came to correct him by reminding him that sex is not all that pleasant as some may present it. Many animals have painful sexual encounters. Things are not all love and romance in the animal kingdom.
- The antechinus for example have so much sexual relations that they bleed inside and go blind.
- Male cats have barbed penises that do not make a female cat’s sexual experience very pleasant.
- The male praying mantis is eaten by the female one after mating. That is not pleasant or painless.
- The male duck’s penis is also shaped differently than the female duck’s vagina which makes penetration very uncomfortable.
Let us not for get humans! Recently, Trump and Rubio have been arguing and making comments about male size. Well, men come in all shapes and sizes.. and I am not referring to their entire bodies. The woman’s uterus is about 7 inches long. Males, on the other hand, can have penises as long as 9 or 10 inches. The largest on record was 13. This is only lenght! Some males are as thick as a banana while others can be thicker than a soda can. While the vagina is an amazing organ and can stretch to release a baby, it is not always ready to accomodate any penis. Sex with a male who has over 8 inches or is thick can be extremely painful for the female if the male gets carried away. Let me not get into other ways people have sexual encounters, in particular, anal. That is another disaster since the anus was not meant to have a penis inside it!
So Neil deGrasse Tyson needs to brush up on his science!
