So I'm watching the Discovery Channel doc "Building Babies: An Inner Adventure", and they show film of the sperm entering the vagina at the moment of ejaculation, and I'm thinking "Dang! How'd they do that?"

So...how did they do that? I can't imagine anything that would ruin the mood more than an endoscopic camera piercing my abdomen and lighting up my vagina. But how would they get this shot? Are we even seeing human sperm, or have that actually filmed sedated animals in some way?

I know they've been able to film shots like these for quite some time, but I've never been able to figure out how it was done.

I know that there was a bonkumentary... er... documentary about sex, and the couple that volunteered had sex before the camera and they had a small endoscopic camera strapped to him. They had a few single runs alone, so that they could get used to the extra.

Only one of the sperm can get to the egg first. The rest of them are just swimming around. Do you really think it's that hard to get one of them to hold the camera?

That sperm must have been in the AV club at school.

Even weirder than that, I remember seeing a show a while back where they were talking about how when a woman reaches her orgasm, her cervix dips down into the vagina. They had some sort of video of this happenning. Just how in the world they crank a woman open with a speculum, put a light and camera in there and say, "Relax, dear, and come," is beyond me! [Eek!]

If it's the one I am thinking of , it is a BBc production with Prof Robert Winston. The lady involved is an actress whose name escapes me but she was in "Waiting For God' and "One Foot In The Grave". Both BBC sitcoms.

Way back when I was in high school -- around 1978 or thereabouts -- they ran some documentary on PBS that had such a shot (I don't know if it would be the same one). I didn't see it, but people were talking about it the next day. One of the girls wondered out loud how that could be done -- how the woman could manage to come with a camera up there. This was in Marine Biology class. The (male) instructor answered -- quite seriously, and without any salacious overtones that I could detect -- "They probably found a woman who could reach orgasm by stimulation of the nipples." For some reason, the girl who asked the question was shocked at this answer and did a big "Ewwww, gross! reaction -- not so much I think at the thought of nipple stimulation, but that the teacher mentioned it. I've always been puzzled by that -- why'd you ask the question if you didn't want a serious answer? *shrug* Oh well....
