Slug sex

Slugs are hermaphrodites, having both female and male reproductive organs. The penis of these species is curled like a cork-screw and often becomes entangled in their mate's genitalia in the process of exchanging sperm. When all else fails, apophallation allows the slugs to separate themselves by one or both of the slugs chewing off the other's penis. Once its penis has been removed, a slug is still able to mate subsequently, but using only the female parts of its reproductive system.

Thanks for the info Erin!

Now I want to know, are slugs laying eggs or are they giving life birth? Do they even NEED a penis? I figured a slug is a vegetarian, but I think not!
Did ever two human stuck together during sex? How did they got separatet?

Questions over questions...
