In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re taking a look at penises in the animal kingdom and the lessons we can learn from them. Some shocking. Some entertaining.

This fascinating topic is based on the book, “Phallacy: Life Lessons from the Animal Penis,” by health, medical and science writer Emily Willingham, Ph.D. She’s also a research scientist specializing in the biological sciences.

The richly illustrated “Phallacy” explores the historical and contemporary context of the penis and all the hype–and oddity–that surrounds it. In her book and in our interview, she answers a range of fun and serious questions about animal and human penises and their relationship to reproduction, pleasure and even power.

“When you look at the animal kingdom, one of the lessons we learn is that it's not our most impressive organ,” Emily says. “It would be great for people to be able to relax a little bit about theirs, I think.”

By breaking down the penis to its biological origins, Emily reminds us the penis wasn’t always a “worshipped obelisk of masculinity.” Rather, it’s a reproductive organ that many creatures have in all sorts of shapes and sizes One that has adapted and changed throughout our biological history.
