An Actual (kind of…) Immaculate Conception

December 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Discoblog has released their top 10 weirdest science stories of the year, and number 1 is also one of my favourites.

It is a case report from the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, entitled:

“Oral conception. Impregnation via the proximal gastrointestinal tract in a patient with an aplastic distal vagina. Case report.”

They have the full text on their blog here, but I will summarize.

A 15-year old girl is admitted to hospital with a stab wound to the abdomen, received during a knife fight between her ex-boyfriend and her new boyfriend. She was treated and released a few days later.

278 days after the incident, she came back to the hospital with severe abdominal pain. Turns out she was pregnant. However…

Inspection of the vulva showed no vagina, only a shallow skin dimple was present below the external urethral meatus and between the labia minora. An emergency lower segment caesarean section was performed under spinal anaesthesia and a live male infant weighing 2800 g was born

So the girl had no vagina. So how did she get pregnant?

Just before she was stabbed in the abdomen she had practised fellatio with her new boyfriend and was caught in the act by her former lover. The fight with knives ensued. She had never had a period and there was no trace of lochia after the caesarean section…

A plausible explanation for this pregnancy is that spermatozoa gained access to the reproductive organs via the injured gastrointestinal tract.

Yes, you read that right. She went down on her boyfriend, got stabbed, and the sperm went from her stomach into her reproductive system.

If that’s not miraculous, I don’t know what is. Although the author of the case study does say that

The fact that the son resembled the father excludes an even more miraculous conception.

In this weeks Adventure of Links, we have accidental condom inhalation, water on Mars, a Star Trek cat fight, and a time traveller in an old silent movie. Happy reading!

Accidental condom inhalation during fellatio: A Love Story Case Study

Homeopathic teething tables have been recalled. Apparently, they hadn’t diluted the poison enough so that it was useless, like most homeopathic remedies.

Are health drinks as good as they claim? The answer will not surprise you.

Star Trek Cat Fight. Yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds.

Skepticism

Is there a time traveller in a 1928 Charlie Chaplain film? I’m not sure, but I am pretty sure it was a slow news day that day.

Canadian man claims the government stole his meteorite which contained alien organisms. The RCMP (the Mounties) say there is no evidence to support his claim.

Scientists find “proof” of psychic abilities. Note: if you have to put “proof” in quotation marks, it’s probably not true.

How Do You Have Sex In Space?

You don’t. At least, you CLAIM you don’t.

That was basically the response of Alan Poindexter, commander of the Space Shuttle Discovery. At a recent press conference in Tokyo, Poindexter was quoted as

“Personal relationships are not an issue. We don’t have them and we won’t.”

There are two things I find amazing about this story.

1) There is actually an astronaut named ‘Poindexter’.

2) That people don’t have sex in space. I mean, c’mon!

First of all, there are more women being put into space than ever before. Don’t think me a sexist, I’m just saying that the possibility is there.

(Aside: Of course homosexual sex is an option, but I will assume it is less common than heterosexual sex.)

Second: How could you not want too? Zero gravity. The possibilities seem endless, and awesome. I find it hard to believe that these days, with astronauts (and cosmonauts) spending months aboard the International Space Station, that they don’t get lonely enough in the vastness of space to kill a bit of time with some space nookie.

Sure most astronauts are married or in a relationship. But I think its unlikely that it hasn’t happened at least once.

What do you guys think? You think its happened already? Or at least will happen in the future? Don’t be shy, we’re all adults here!
