    Reproduction: Something about laying eggs in a guy’s sac (as per Futurama). Sounds a bit painful, but if seahorses can do it, I’m sure a merman can.

    Boobs: To ease oral fixations.

    I figured that boobs were to lure unsuspecting sailors to certain doom or something like that, but what you said also makes sense. :P

    I’m sure that if mermaids do exist that they have Vaginas and Mermen have penises and then they have Mer sex lol

    Not necessarily… The female could just lay fish-eggs, and the male would inseminate them externally just like fish do.

    Or perhaps the real Merfolk would be the reverse way (fish head + legs) like on Family Guy.

    In the past it was not uncommon for a mermaid (actually a medieval siren) to be portrayed as having a split tail, with a vagina located (or implied to be) between the two parts.

    The little mermaid is a child friendly version of what the first mermaids were drawn as so the fish part started below where it is and the genitals were exposed on them like humans
