Ents more human than tree-like as mates....

Posted on 2006.08.23 at 07:58
I always wondered how the Ents produced Entings. I even have browsed a thread on a Tolkien message board, where fans were discussing what might be their method of reproduction.

Were they more human-like, with human-like sexual organs? Or did they propagate like dioecious trees, with the pollen from the flowers of the Ents dropping onto the pistils of the flowers of the Entwives?

Yesterday, by chance, a friend of my husband sent him a photo that has decided the issue for me.

Ents reproduced like humans, not day-lilies.

Here is the incontrovertible proof:

P.S. to manippers: do you think this image is real, or manipped? Great job, if it's a manip.

Two thoughts: Hilarious, and "Ow!" !!! :-D

Yes, I was wondering if the Ents produced some sort of lubricant. Like sap, but slippery instead of sticky.... Well, you know me. Always curious about the details. "Where are the toilets in Rivendell? Had the Elves invented commodes, even flush toilets by then? Did Elves need to urinated and defecate at all? Perhaps they used their food and drink with perfect efficiency, producing no waste, since their bodies aren't dying and their cells not being sloughed off the way the bodies of mortals are?"

I'm all for natural Elves. I think they're basically the same as Men, only more elevated in certain ways. So, definitely flush toilets in Rivendell. ;) Certainly indoor plumbling, if the Romans had it. But I don't think they are spirits, or unnatural, just immortal.

Good Heavens! That's BIG!

So and I believed the whole time in this story with the blossoms and the bees ...

Good Heavens! That's BIG!

Well, he's a big Ent. Everything in proportion, everything in proportion. :)

Eeeek! I have to say I had not thought too much on the Ents' method of reproduction, but there is certainly "food for thought" here!

I wonder if your hubby's friend has a photo of an Entwife's girly bits?? :-O
mechtild at 2006-08-23 20:10 (UTC) (Link)
No, he doesn't -- or he didn't send one, anyway. But Jan-u-wine sent me a link to a site with naked female trees. I'm going to post them.
bagendbabe at 2006-08-23 22:03 (UTC) (Link)
Oh thanks - look forward to that!

mechtild at 2006-08-23 22:09 (UTC) (Link)
Just posted. Este's pics and Jan's pics from Michelle Rhea are gems.

Treebeard is shocked and outraged that you would post such a private photo! O_O

What do you mean? He's been flashing since the dawn of the First Age! (Love your icon, Starlit!!!)

Yeah, pretty well-equipped, that tree. No wonder Treebeard let out that roar when Pippin grabbed him. That wasn't his nose, after all.

Ent-draught does work!!!

*thinks may be on e-bay...*

Oh, wait till you see the Ent women! Jan-u-wine sent me some images she found on a nature photographer's web site.

If that's an Ent's, um...end, then I've seen lot's of entwives' bits. In fact a friend has a large oakwife in his backyard that oozed honey for a while; bees had taken up residence! o_0

*headesk* Me. Again.

Hmmm...Bees...Perhaps the equivalent of Entish spanish fly? @_@
mechtild at 2006-08-23 20:07 (UTC) (Link)
Ah, Honey, most interesting!!! It dripped honey, eh? My, my. I have been sent a number of other "erotic tree" images from people who've seen this. I'm going to post them.

That really is incredibly ... impressive.


I'll never see Ents in the same light again!
mechtild at 2006-08-23 20:05 (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, just think of those poor, unsuspecting bucks that come into the woods to rub themselves against a tree and choose that.

So that's where tentpegs come from!
mechtild at 2006-08-23 20:05 (UTC) (Link)
Right! *snort* I got your images of your "hung" birch, Este. I want to post them.

Please do! They should be shared.
