Friday's Lowdown: Humboldt's Sexiest (For a Good Cause) Event

Q: Which creature found in some of Humboldt County's coastal regions has the longest penis relative to body size in the animal kingdom?

If somehow over time your freaky brain has absorbed answers to questions like the one above (answer below), then the best use of your Friday night might be a drive to Blue Lake. There, knowledge of all things sex-related will be highly coveted by your peers. 

That's because it's once again time for Six Rivers Planned Parenthood's annual SexyTime Trivia Night fundraiser, taking place this year in Blue Lake Casino's Sapphire Palace. Teams will compete in a multi-round, sextacular quiz -- with questions asked by the tantalizing Miss Gina and yours truly -- in the hopes of winning prizes we won't dare reveal on a place as family-friendly as the internet.

More details here, or scroll through other, less sexy Friday night events in your Lowdown below.

(Oh, the answer to the question above is barnacles. Go, barnacles.)
