Pin these on your gown


Have you ever been to a bar, watched girls dance together, but don’t have the balls to ask for a dance yourself? Perhaps a flower could help to break the ice. Here’s a conversation non-starter.
Did you know that Orchids got their name from male genitalia? Linaeus described his
first European orchid with the name Orchis Maculata, because it has two bulbs that had for centuries, reminded people of a pair of testicles (and this species was maculate, it had spots), but were actually the current, and previous years growth. Men would eat the bulbs in order cure impotence, which needless to say, didn’t work and only made the old world countryside a less spectacular place. 
Strangely enough the orchid has a different twist on male reproductive organs, it glues them to the head or body of the visiting insect, and thus loses them. I bet that makes it’s voice go up an octave or two. The insect then travels round distributing pollen in exactly the right place, on other orchid flowers. Have balls, will travel! I’m not sure how to categorize the insects’ part in this sexual intercourse, not having sex, but still an active partner, not a voyeur but having someone else’s sexual organs right in front of your face. Are they some kind of surrogate? And the flower, does it have sex with, make love to, or the insect? People think cyber-sex is weird.
The Victorians used the symbolism in the testiculate roots, and the rarity of the different species, to make them a popular gift, given to a lady, when going out on a date. Thus the corsage became the thing to wear, when going to Balls.
And so we come full circle.
