Which reminds me of a story my old man used to tell:

Driving through Dogpatch, Ky in thier old Model T, Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat pulled into a service station when they saw a sign in the window that offered "Kick-a-poo Joy Juice - 6 gals for a dollar". Lonesome Polecat coughed up the buck and they both sat back and drank 3 jugs a piece. Hairless Joe got up, and stumbled over to the attendant and said "Well, that's some mighty fine drink you had there, now bring on the gals".

What comes to mind when you think of two people barehugging each other?

When I think of a "barehug", I think of the fruit the hug will bear.

Is there womb enough for any other interpretation?

Shakespeare's "two backed beast"?

Two beasts back to back are not likely to bear any new beasts, wwh, unless the beast is a lion.

Lions are retromingent so I assume they couple in reverse ... which could be an advantage to a lion keeping his eye out for other game.

For a lion, a bird in hand may not be worth two in the bush.

He is, after all, "the King of the Beasts".

Dear Grapho: Do you need instruction about the birds and
the bees? Ever heard that dancing is a navel engagement
without loss of seamen?

Sorry that it did get more than usually physiologic.
The result of being a bit too eager to compete.

too eager to compete

"Too eager to compete" has been the downfall of a lot of seamen.
