The Raccoon Penis Bone


Okay, this is a sensitive topic and I will handle it with the dignity it deserves.  Many people may do a double take on this one, but the Raccoon penis bone is important to Appalachian culture.


The initial reaction that most people have to this is "Wait a minute, raccoons have bones in their penis?!?"
Yes, yes they do.  Actually almost all mammals have bones in their penis known as a baculum.  There are only a few exceptions to this.  Humans do not have penis bones, but all other primates do.  Oddly enough, the possum does not have a penis bone.  Makes you question who are true closest relative is.


This here is a raccoon penis bone.


In Southern Appalachia the raccoon penis bone has traditionally been worn as a fertility talisman.  It also has the amazing double purpose of being used as a toothpick. It keeps you fertile and keeps gunk out of your teeth.  


Now if you are dieing to get your raccoon penis bone, there are readily available on Etsy.

  5. The average length of a penis is 7 inches, while a lot of men are on their 4 to 6 inches. Most men have lost the love of their life as result of their small penis. David
