I am attempting to determine whether or not a whale’s penis is called a dork. I am being told this by a teenager and have subsequently discovered that this is all over the Interent in user posted forums. However, I am dubious that this nothing more than an urban myth working its way at lightspeed through teenagers sensitive to genital humor and wanted to see if the Teeming Millions might have a better idea.

You are watching: Is a dork a whale penis

Thanks,Randy


I’ve heard this before, but not it is not included as a definition at m-w.com or dictionary.com

maybe a different dictionary with a biology/zoology emphasis might be of some help.


Baloney; dork is a slang term for “penis,” probably from the Scots durk, “dagger.” A whale’s penis is called a penis.


According to the OED online, it’s definitely a wang, but apparently of the human variety:

slang (chiefly U.S.).

The penis.

1964 Amer. Speech XXXIX. 118 The word dick itself serves as a model for two variants which areprobably Midwestern, dirk and dork, also meaning ‘penis’. 1969 P. ROTH Portnoy’s Complaint 194The glorious acrobatics she can perform while dangling from the end of my dork. 1975 R. H.RIMMER Premar Experiments (1976) i. 138 It’s kind of fun to watch balls and dorks and tittiesbobbing in separate rhythms. 1984 Spectator 27 Oct. 34/1 A man with one leg and a vermilionbladder, violet stomach and testicles and a scarlet dork is seen putting it into another amputee.

Oosik is the bone in the whales penis.

Other purported whale facts

The largest penis in the animal kingdom is that of the blue whale. Its average length is 11 feet (3.35 m)!

The largest testicles in the world are those of the northern right whale (Eubalaena glacialis), which has a pair of gonads that can weigh up to 2,200 lbs (997.902 kg).

The reason why they evolved such enormous testicles is caused by the fact that each whale’s sperm competes with that of other whales. When the female whale comes into heat she immediately gets mobbed by about 30 passionate males who all make love to her (or at least try this). Each whale attempts to wash out the sperm of the competitor with their own. The more sperm they produce, the biggest the chance they will succeed.

The largest vagina is that of the female blue whale, which is not surprising considering the size her lover’s penis. Her vulva consists of a long groove along her underside and normally has a length of 6 to 8 feet (1.82 m to 2.44 m). It expands when intercourse occurs.

Even more specifically, oosik is the Inuit word for a walrus (and possibly a whale’s as well) baculum.


Reeder June 18, 2002, 3:33am #13

Doesn’t Oosik sound better than baculum?

rbefumo, no I don’t think a whale penis is called a dork. However, being this is your first post,why did you want to know what it’s called?

Well, since it’s already been proven that “dork” does mean “penis,” I don’t see why not.

why did you want to know what it’s called?

Hey, if we’re fighting ignorance, we have to address all of the questions, not just the ones that are sufficiently dignified.

Example of usage of baculum from the OED:

A baculum…is a heterotopic bone, which is the skeleton of the penis, found in all insectivores, bats, rodents, and carnivores, and in all primates except man

And here I thought “Monkeybone” was just a movie title…

So this thing is twice as long as I am tall, the gonads are a good 15 times my weight… I can’t really picture this (for which I’m thankful), so the only thing that really comes to mind is… Holy F*ck!
