Spermatorrhoea means involuntary loss of semen, although the rings were also intended to prevent voluntary discharges from masturbation or Onanism. The ring was placed at the base of the penis and fasted with a screw such that any engorgement of the organ would meet with the teeth of the ring and arrest the process.
Tonight at the club I had no less than three people ask me, "What's with the furries?" These conversations went approximately like: "Why are you asking me?" "You're from the Internet." "Ok, which part confuses you?" "How many parts are there?" And then I referred them to the CSI episode.* It's fairly definitive.
"Uh oh. Semen."
