LOL jholstein11. I'm getting a visual of you explaining things to your son. Priceless. Thanks for the laugh.

I used my hedgehog to teach my 9 year old boy (who incidently also enjoys boy time ) about the birds and the bees. I found using an animal to explain why we do private things in private and how "breeding" works was SO much less traumatic on us both.

Well the fresh poop smells, this is just a bit of dried stuff. :P And like I said, you don't really see that much so it's probably fine for your daughters. And what's wrong with explaining it? I don't know how old they are but I've always been around animals as a kid and they have sex and it's just normal.

I laughed so hard at what jholstein said...It's true, I guess it's a good thing you have all daughters!
I say get whichever hedgehog seems to be the friendliest. Don't worry about the fact that it is a boy or a girl. Worse case scenario you get to talk to your daughters about the birds and the bees - it might be a good ice breaker!
Good luck whatever you decide,

Re: Mildly disturbed by the issue of "boy time"

To be honest, I never get the people who don't want to buy a male hedgehog because of the boy time. It's totally normal. I think the poop is far worse.
I have a male and yes, he does it. There's dried stuff in his fur every day (and in his cuddle bag). I couldn't care less. I just give him a bath when needed and wash his cuddle bags. And when they are having boy time you don't even really see that much. They just arch their back in a funny way, they are actually still kinda discreet when they're doing it out in the open. He went through his "horny teenager stage" but when he got older he turned it down a bit so he usually only does it in his cage right now.

It is what it is. If you have any boys in your life of any species, they do stuff like that. We still love 'em.

Re: Mildly disturbed by the issue of "boy time"

ROFL That's so funny!

I did talk to the breeder and she said she has never noticed this type of behavior from the father at all. But he gets to mate, so we weren't sure if that's why it's not an issue with him. I think at this point, I'm still leaning toward getting which ever one that has the best personality match with me.

Re: Mildly disturbed by the issue of "boy time"

Maybe I'm a bit weird but... I find the concept that hedgies have boy time fascinating. I think hedgies are so clever to be able to find pleasure. Not all animals can say that.

I was actually joking with my hubby about it last night. I mean, for boy hedgies sex isn't exactly the greatest. He's doing it with a spike ball. If that was my only option, i might stay home and have boy time in my snuggle sack too.

Re: Mildly disturbed by the issue of "boy time"

We have a male hedgehog and have no issues. That is we have never seen him in action so to speak. I have only noticed his snuggle blanket a little crusty one time but that's it. I didn't even know hedgehogs did that or I probably would have thought twice about getting a male. But I'm telling you that it's not big deal and just nature! I love him to pieces!
