He’d been with plenty of aliens in his time, and none of them had ever had dicks that changed shape once they reached full hardness—though there had been some that could move in the most amazing ways—and he’s pretty sure he’d remember if he’d heard about this when they went over Vulcan anatomy and reproduction in xenobiology.
50. Is That Even Possible?: 3,166 words. Kirk’s always had a thing for Xeno-sex and has always wanted to sleep with a Vulcan. He’s done the research (aka the Xeno Kama Sutra.) but the problem is that he’s never met a Vulcan until now and Spock hates his guts.
