More Turkey News: Big Breasts, No Sex

/

A more humorous story for this Thanksgiving holiday; big breasts mean no sex for holiday Turkeys.  According to a recent Freakanomics report, our predilection for big breasted turkeys impairs turkey sex- the breasts get in the way of copulation. This has ‘forced’ commercial turkey farmers into artificial insemination.  There is not a Turkey on the market today, lest they be a ‘heritage’ turkey that has had the pleasure of sex. Nor for that matter, have most other livestock (90% of all cattle are artificially inseminated). Imagine if big breasts had the same effect on human sex.  Unnatural Turkeys: A New Marketplace podcast
