At dinner with my girlfriend's kin.  Her sister was describing it and some obnoxious man said "So, what you're saying is that you're into slug porn?"

And then she sent me a link.

I don't know if I could watch that video at work. It may get flagged.

More on slug procreation, from Rob Sandelin of Northwest Natural History:

The rainfall moisture overnight brings out the slugs to mate. In the early morning glimmer a slug lays a scent in its slimy track and another slug picks up the invitation and the slow motion chase is on. The winner follows the leading slug up a shrub or small tree and then they join together and spin and dangle from mucus strings. Overnight the gooey entwined blobs of Leopard slug hang from bushes like odd ornaments, slowly swirling as they pass reproductive material back and forth. Slugs are hermaphrodites, meaning they are both male and female. The male sex organ is barbed and so once inserted it must be chewed off in order for the pair to uncouple. Don’t try this at home.

Boo hoo. slug porn is private.
I was at a dance once and a friend came up to me and said, "I have some dirty pictures to show you." Slugs had mated on her porch beside the door. She had a full set of pictures of them doing the nasty. Quite fun.
A bit more on gnawed off slug penises at Last Word on Nothing.
