Yeh. I'll bet Ms Wright's intended audience (probably people who picked the
copy of DISCOVER up off the coffee table when they got tired of watching the
Super Bowl beer ads with women tearing each others' clothes off in a
fountain) read it, chuckled a little maybe, and read on.
I see that the current issue has articles titled "The Gift of Salmon" (about
swimming upstream and spawning) and "Where Do We Come From" (about heredity
and DNA); bet THOSE topics have great potential for double entendres. Ms
Wright also has an article on Weightlessness (the toll low gravity takes on
astronauts' bodies), which seems pretty safe (I didn't read it, as you have
to be a subscriber to view the actual articles).
