Did you catch me on SciShow Quiz Show? I missed all the answers and still won! Curious? Link here. It inspired me to quiz you.


These questions are from a trivia night I hosted at my local cheesesteak restaurant. I work for food. Tally up your correct answers and let us know in the comments how it goes.

This one's for you, Jessi Knudsen Castañeda of Animal Wonders Montana. According to zoologist Dr. Fiona Hunter, what black and white animal employs female prostitution in the form of sexual favors for pebbles?
Time's up! Did you guess penguins?

How many heads does the penis of a spiny anteater have?
Not one, not two, not three, but four heads branching out from the spiny shaft that work in pairs, so that these two inseminate, then these two, these two, these two, with every alternate sexual escapade.

What did researchers at UCSF expose fruit flies to with the result of hypersexuality and a chain of males chasing each other?

What is the name of the Greek God who is the protector of male genitals and the eponym of the four hour erection?

What is the fear of having, seeing, or thinking about erections called?
Ithyphallophobia. Ithy - erect. Phallo - penis. Phobia - fear.

Who discovered that human male penises fill with blood rather than air? Multiple choice. Go!
B, Leonardo da Vinci.

What did women in the fourteen hundreds wear in order to conceal that they had lice or syphilis?
Merkins! They're these pubic hair wigs. So if you had lice and had to shave in order to make sure that they didn't stick around, then somebody might look at you and be like "Oh, no pubic hair, must have had lice. Hmm." And so you would wear something fake to conceal that. The same with syphilis, if you had outbreak and wanted to cover that up, over your own pubic hair you would wear a merkin.

New question. What is the first appearance of pubic hair on a child called?
Pubarche. High five to you if you knew the answer!

What demographic did Nair target for their fruity smelling hair removal product called 'Pretty'? I'll give you a hint, it's very controversial.
Girls ten to fifteen years old. That's definitely something to stay curious about.
