Keep in mind that the digestive system and the reproductive organs are
the number two and three highest concentrations of nerve cells in the
body, behind the brain. The digestive tract has more nerve cells than
the rest of the body outside the brain, leading to speculation about it
being a 'second brain', which explains 'thinking with one's gut'.
Carrying this over, one must expect that 'thinking with one's prick' is
a lesser but legitimate mode, especially for those with a proven record
of poor use of the number one brain...
