Last night I was at my little sisters birthday party at some restaurant, my little sister had a balloon with all of the Disney princesses on it, in the center was the little mermaid (I forgot her name) curled up in a position that remained me of a porno pinup my father has on his wall back in CA and I thought “How the heck do mermaids reproduce???” how the heck to they defecate for that matter? I asked this to my brother and we discussed it and my mother and step-father also put in their input and after about 5 minutes of discussion we came to a conclusion: mermaid reproduce just like fish, the mermaid swims over some rocks, drops down a load of eggs from some hole that’s invisible unless in use, the mermen(?) see the eggs swim over and spawns them, some time latter the eggs hatch most of the mer-lava die off from natural causes such as being eating by predators or merfolk, the few that do survive grow large enough to find there mother to breast feed (why else would mermaids have boobs?)

You know, in analyzing dreams mermaids are often symbolic of oral sex. It sounds absurd the first time you hear it, but if you think about it, that's really the only form of sexual interaction that they'd really be capable of. . . and of course they always have those wonderfully round breasts, so you know that they have to be sexual in nature, somehow.

How can they have oral sex? the merman does not have anything to suck (just a spawning hole)??? :rolleyes:

It could be like a invisible hole like you mentioned before. When the mermaid is sexually aroused she probably has contractions which opens up a hole with a soft, mushy, organ and behind that a wall of flesh to keep the water from going in. The merman can cause orgamsic pleasure from playing with that organ.

sargentlard,

eeeewww, I liked the idea of a merman getting off on seeing a shit load of eggs, that’s funny as hell, but your idea is just gross, especially when one thinks of Disney characters!

Reality hurts...mermaids just don't drop out of the sky you know...someone has to preocreate to produce them.

All we need to do is get some drunken bum off the street, have him defile some fish eggs and now we have fish-human hybrids, that simple. The fish-humen hybrid will need to reproduce like fish so no orgasmic organs just egg laying and spawning action.

Well, maybe Mer-people could be immortal and sterile. One could liken them to demigods, after all.

What a genetic mess. If it ever did happen the child would have so many defects or the exact opposite. I guess the child would be high on proteins then and good oils ehh

That’s a good idea sargentlard, we could raise these children in some 3rd world country then grind them up and sell the oil as good-for-your-heart food.

I remember such a scheme in Futurama where the old lady wanted to trabscribe Anchovies genes into thrild world childern and turn into cheap oil producing machines.

Yes, but most human men, who would be doing the dreaming, have penisis, Fetus. Maybe you can get a grant to study what mermen see in their sexual dreams.

no you got to look at it like this: how is the mermaid going to know how to give a blowjob to a human? She obviously does not know of the concept her self, she would not even know what a penis is.

I really think that you're trying to think of this too much. A mermaid doesn't have to have a psychology and physiology that would work in the real world, if it's a sex fantasy just assume it knows how to give a blow job. . . a really good blow job at that. It doesn't need to really exist out side of the imaginary parameters which spawned it.

Dolphins don't have green, fish scaled, under-sections

I don't think the plumbing would care about the skin. Besides which, the tail fin is more like a dolphin's than a fish's.

Oh sure but if is green and scaly on the outside one could only expect a fish like anatomy on the inside, also mermaids can breath water a unattained achievement for "mammals"

Hey you'd be surprised. You should see the outtakes from flipper, they are pretty raunchy.

In my mental image of mermaids I always imagined the scales starting "ahem" just south of the genitalia. Perhaps the merman's is retractable to reduce drag. Otherwise I just though of them as waterbreathing mammals who would handle everything just like any other mammal. (the lack of real hip bones would aid the birthing process)

Mermaids are shape shifters. They turn into women to reproduce when they want.


A story is told of an inhabitant of Unst, who, in walking on the sandy margin of a voe, saw a number of mermen and mermaids dancing by moonlight, and several sealskins strewed beside them on the ground. At his approach they immediately fled to secure their garbs, and, taking upon themselves the form of seals, plunged immediately into the sea. But as the Shetlander perceived that one skin lay close to his feet, he snatched it up, bore it swiftly away, and placed it in concealment….The husband immediately returned, learned the discovery that had taken place, ran to overtake his wife, but only arrived in time to see her transformation of shape completed -- to see her, in the form of a seal, bound from the ledge of a rock into the sea. The large animal of the same kind with whom she had held a secret converse soon appeared, and evidently congratulated her, in the most tender manner, on her escape. But before she dived to unknown depths, she cast a parting glance at the wretched Shetlander, whose despairing looks excited in her breast a few transient feelings of commiseration

Apparently they are a subcatagory of Melusina which includes mermaids, water sprites, and forest nymphs. Forest nymphs have always been my favorite. :D

People who turn into seals are silkies, not mermaids. This is a different myth.

I once jizzed on a batch of mermaid eggs, but i can assure you it was purely by chance.
A merman battered me to near death with his tail, he went on and on about how I "ruined a perfectly hot batch with land sperm" or something.
Don't know what that guys problem was.
Most of the babies drowned, the ones that survived lived in terrible pain and were infertile, so no harm done:)

How do Mermaids Reproduce?

To my mind it's easy enough to answer this pressing, telling, question of Natural/Unnatural History. Consider the earliest sources, such as Hesiod, Aristophanes, et al. From their outline it is evident that all Meres (parthenogenic imperative for a postulated all--female gender not yet verified) are children or creations of the sea god Triton. Ignoring for a moment the undesirability of addending procreative impulses to virtually immortal godspawn (pun intended) it seems clear to me that the same morphological mutability (shape--shifting power) attributed to other "gods and goddesses" throughout the Greek Pantheons applies here. Should a Mer . . .whether masculine or feminine . . . desire progeny it could easily modify its shape and genetic material to match that of its intended . . . er . . . target, so to speak, enabling trans--specific breeding without further difficulty other than the inevitable atrocities of good taste and subjects unsuited to polite (ie; dinner table) conversation.

Thank you for your valuable time

Here's a thought- we find these things we call "mermaid's purses" right? Shark egg cases, right? Well, why not? It would explain why the female has mammary glands for only one or two offspring. They incubate one or two, and as for any sign of sexual organs, how many have noticed them on video of whale or dolphins? It's fits into the outward anatomy very well, no more noticeable than, say, the slight dent made by some artists to suggest leg anatomy under the "fish skin." And if you want to go more toward fish anatomy, well those are well-nigh invisible! Mostly because they're camouflaged by the anal fin. Also I would think in fish type merpeople they have slits near the bottom of their ribs to expel water taken in to extract oxygen, and that there are different species of mers- and some are fish class and look wilder and more alien, and some are mammal and breath air and look more like us.

rosecat

But there's no reason why mammalian mers- can't lay egg cases. After all, platypi do it.

She will be learned.

Problem with the egg fertilization thingie: she's only got two tits. Ergo, two offspring or some small similar number. Unless they fight for dominance.

Geoff- see my above post ^ :rolleyes:

Another thought- many fish called anabantiods (Siamese fighting fish, snakeheads, gouramis...) have an organ next to their gills that allows them to breath air easily in low oxygen water and functions very much like a lung. I'm assuming this is what mers use, somewhere in the chest cavity, to spend time out of the water.

A Solemn Promise to Sciforums

I will do my utmost to apply for a grant to study the effects of global warming on the reproduction of mermaid populations in the Caribbean Sea.


If I can get at least $0.50, I'm pretty sure I can get to the bottom of this dilemma.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this grant proposal?

I mean, how to get them to take me seriously?

Sorry, rose - I didn't realize I was stealing your hypothesis. Can I still be a co-author on the paper?

Gia- you just want to go to the Caribbean! ;)

Geoff- oh sure lol
And about fighting for dominance.......nearly all fish have a lateral line running from the gill area to the end of the tail- you can see it on almost all fish if you look close. It's used to sense movement and faint electrical current in the water around them. So I suppose mers ought to have them too. Male sea creatures when fighting for females will beat on each other's lateral lines with their tails. This is essentially two guys kicking each other in the crotch until one gives up.
