Mating lessons from the Leopard Slug

This is some seriously memorizing mating action.

I've been married for almost 14 years and have been together with Krissy for almost 17 years. In about a year, I'll have been with my "Mate" for more than half of of my life. But before that, things were rough in the girl department. I glided up the tree leaving my mucus trail for years and years... I even left the special scent and everything! But alas I found no one following. Then at the time least expected it... I felt a nibble on my backside. I liked the nibbling and before long our "translucent flowerlike globes" were intertwined.

Sometimes now, with half my lifetime gone by intertwined spinning on the branch, I still wonder how an often oblivious and largely tactless slug like me finally succeeded in finding a mate. What makes men and women... CLICK all of a sudden? What are the ingredients of the sexual magic that happens mid spin? My analytical brain is always searching for a formula. What makes one night "work" and another... not. Mates ALL have those private sex-fail stories, shared only between themselves, where they "fall off the branch." If you're married you know what I'm talking about. I'll bet even the Leopard Slugs even have mating outtakes too that aren't narrated by Sir David Attenborough.

I think that people (and slugs) are created to WANT to be together but live with a daily barrage of contrarian instincts that would separate ourselves from those we WANT to be with.

Last night we, along with the 3 amazing fruits of all that mating, watched the very touching "We bought a Zoo." The movie features a number of characters caught in the flux between wanting to BE together and these internally-focused intentions that separate. The phrase that they used to get themselves over the hump was brilliant.

“Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”
— Benjamin Mee - We Bought A Zoo

Sometimes you just have to have the courage to emit the scent. To crawl up the branch. To nibble the backside. To together glide down that thin string of mucus and spin like you're lost and free.

TOGETHER... can be clunky.
Lots of times it doesn't look like you envisioned.
It's RARELY narrated by Sir David Attenborough

But more often than not... it's absolutely beautiful and we were created for it.
