Dear Exam: What Other Organ, Besides Our Lady Business, Is Self-Cleaning?

I learned something new on Friday while watching Oprah's second installment of sex therapy with Dr. Berman. While I knew that our lady business is a self-cleaning organ, I learned that there is only one other organ that has that same ability. Do you know what it is? Test your body trivia below!

The eyes tear. This was an easy one. But "self-cleansing" reminds me of a corny poem: A Self-cleansing Dichotomy The angered predicament; From an unfathomed embarrassment To baptismal transformations, And cleansing mitigations, Splitting the body and soul, Into non-intersecting parts of a whole. Inner elements in bipartition, A mutually exclusive reflection… Of me… in tacit dichotomy, soul searching… body, in earnest yearning… of a purifying sabbatical, And a rinsing meditation For the naked truth, To utter silent words to sooth; To achieve an inner peace, And hatred…to cease… I dunno...always liked that poem. :-P

I kind of wanted to answer all of the above, but I figured eyes was what the quiz was looking for. Ears absolutely DO clean themselves and earwax is NOT for protecting your ear from things getting to far in (sorry krae). I always thought the main role of ear wax was to moisturize the tympanic membrane ("ear drum") so it doesn't dry out.. but I definitely know it plays a cleaning & antibiotic role too.

I thought about eyes but how can they be self cleaning if people sometimes get that gunk at the corners? I guess I don't know the definition of "self cleaning."

Ear wax can be bad. I remember when I was little I had to go have a build up of wax removed from one of my ears. It was huge and disgusting and apparently was f-ing up my equilibrium. BTW I guess right with "the eye". ;)

ears don't clean themselves, the wax is to protect things from getting too far into your ear. And I've seen plenty of people in need of q-tips to clean out the extra wax!

yeah, simple. and ear wax isn't the ear cleaning itself, that's the ear preventing other stuff from getting into it, right? that's what i always thought.

I learned this in high school biology. Aside from blinking and tears, eyes have a film of mucous on them that will eventually be washed away and replaced, hence "eye boogers" in the morning. The crusties are your eye's old layer of mucous. This also explains why when you're allergic to something, your eyes water and you have more eye crusties. :]

Totally karlotta, it's like itching a bad scratch or having someone scratch your back, mmmm :P

That's what I thought too, Fallen - but I guess not! (I have been cleaning them anyway, I can't help myself - besides sex, I think a Q-tip in my ear is the most satisfying feeling in the world - LOL)

Yea I guessed ears too lol! Because of ear wax!

Ears clean themselves, thats what ear wax is for. You dont actually need those q-tips, most doctors will advise you against using them anyways!
