ops- missed the comments... Yes, she does have a name: Rosie. She had her first litter too. We bred her just to make sure we recognize all the behaviors etc.

Finding the ancestral roots of female orgasm

Hi Christopher, happy New Year to you too. A very good question. So far there is not much direct evidence for orgasm having impact on fertility, but for us this is still an open question as it is not quite clear that the question has been investigated sufficiently. There would be reason why one would think there might be effects. For example, copulation in mice is not necessary for ovulation, but it is necessary for implantation, so one possibility would be that the effect on implantation would ancestrally have been one of the effects. Also, there is some evidence that sex, in contrast to what is often recommended, actually positively affects the outcome of IVF. However we do not know whether these effects are associated with female orgasm or some other effect of sex.... So- yes, understanding the mechanism better could have a number of positive effects!

Thank you Ron! It would be great if someone would do more on baculum as well, you two with Scot should think about it and resubmit that preproposal! :-) M
