fun with insect sex

In the mood for something silly, bizarre, and educational? Let me put that another way: how would you like to see Isabella Rossellini perform pelvic thrusts on a giant stuffed praying mantis? It's all in the name of art and science. Go to Green Porno. Don't be scared off by the "porno" -- it's just insect porn, and it's on the Sundance Channel website, so it couldn't be too porny. (I like adding 'y' to words. Have you ever told someone to "stop acting assy"? Try it. It's fun.)
Anyway, they're short movies that are like these pictures, except that Isabella Rossellini plays every role! I totally love when she runs away from the spider. Thanks, Abi, for the link!
Oh, I'm still soliciting quotes for the new Laini's Ladies. Thanks for the suggestions so far! Here's another quote for you, that I love but that won't make it onto a lady:

"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it."
-- Terry Pratchett

And another:

"The mind I love must have wild places, a tangle orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind."
-- Katherine Mansfield

Do the animal and creature world watch each other mate? And if yes does it turn their crank?
My pooch always looks disgusted and bored when we leave her in the room.

Ah Laini, I'm just falling over with laughter. Even this unrepentent hater of all things insect will have to visit Green Porm

Hey, Laini
Brian caught one of his little friends snooping around our living room the other night and I said, "look at the palps on that guy" and knew exactly what I was talking about. Sex ed is so important.
