Emily Graslie (@castoridae), the chief curiosity correspondent at the Field Museum, wields a sizable baculum, or penile bone, of a walrus. (at The Field Museum)

In case you’re wondering what I’m up to on a daily basis…

Oh, hey, look! My namesake: an oosik!
In the Arctic, these bones were often used as war clubs, or for clubbing baby seals. One could also cut off the tip, about where Emily’s thumb is, drill a hole into the tip, and attach or haft that tip to a harpoon shaft creating what is called the socket piece.
This is better than just having straight wood for the tip of the harpoon shaft because the dense penis bone is able to absorb much of the energy from the thrust and penetration of the harpoon head into the blubbery prey without breaking. Because nobody wants a broken shaft.

I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants.

huffingtonpost:

Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason.
