It's 8pm - Do You Know Where (Your Brain Thinks) Your Penis Is?

You just have to read this short article from New Scientist. It sounds like an unusual, but interesting piece of science. What made me laugh though is the description if the experiments themselves:
"Christian Kell at the University of Frankfurt in Germany has put eight men into an MRI scanner to help settle the question. Using a soft brush, Kell stroked parts of each volunteer's body while recording brain activity."
We need research like this in the U.S., because if the religious right got wind of federal funding for a guy sitting in a laboratory stroking other guys' penises with a soft brush, it's just possible that it would draw the totality of their fire and the rest of the scientific establishment could relax for a while.
