13 NSFW facts you've always wanted to know but never wanted to ask about

While the majority of us are pretty well versed in what our body parts are capable of doing, we're rather oblivious to the sexual proclivities of the other species in the world. I mean, who visits the zoo and aquarium enough to know how exactly the exotic animals of the land like to get it on? And I think we can all agree that it's just weird to ask about this kind of stuff too.

So if you've ever found yourself wondering if certain species can regrow their genitals, or why women's breasts seem to magically get larger when they're aroused, look no further for I have the answers to all those awkward questions.
