Does Creativity Come From Our Sex Organs? (Of course it does.)

 Lady GaGa, potentially losing her creativity.

Via dlisted, there is an interview from Vanity Fair in which Lady GaGa confesses that she believes the seat of her creativity can be found in her wondrous loins.
Lady Gaga tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Lisa Robinson that she tries to avoid having sex because she is afraid of depleting her creative energy—“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.”
Sex is a creative act in itself, if not procreative. It fans the creative spark; it does not deplete it.

But how does a man take the creativity of a woman through her vagina? Copulation between a man and a woman involves penetrating the woman's orifice with his penis. Does Ms. GaGa's creativity travel into the hole in the tip of the penis, and up into his urethra, from there to his liver and eventually to his brain?

Perhaps she worries that this "sucking" of creativity occurs during the act of cunnilingus, when the male partner is sucking on the vagina, drawing her creativity into his mouth. In that case, perhaps, the creativity can be absorbed into the soft tissue of his tongue. Beautiful singing would naturally ensue.

Then again, Ms. GaGa might be engaging in the act of coitus with other women. During the rubbing of two vaginas together, the creativity would be directly transferred. This would be the most efficient way; but cunnilingus would also be a viable option.

Perhaps there is a strap-on device that women can use to both penetrate the vagina and draw forth from that vagina, via a "sucking" or "vacuum" mechanism, the sweet and juicy creativity within.

The idea that our creativity can be found in our sex organs is certainly nothing new. However, it has been a mostly masculine assertion.
[A]n overwhelming number of male authors have attributed their creative capacity directly to their bodily configuration: the pen ... is a metaphoric penis, and vice-versa. This metaphoric equation between pen and penis is important ... because such metaphors shape how we are able to think about the process of writing, and about creativity in general. By linking writing with having a penis, these authors insist that writing, being creative, is a biological act, one rooted in the body--and specifically in the male body. ...[T]his equation is not an isolated incident, something that just a few jerks thought, but rather is one of the dominant metaphors of creativity in Western culture, for both male and female writers.
The great writer and filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky has asserted that his creativity comes from his testicles.
"Most directors make films with their eyes; I make films with my testicles."
Author and charlatan Aleister Crowley called his penis a magic wand.
What is magick, and why do you spell it with a 'k'?
'K' can also be seen as standing for kteis (vagina - cup), the complement to the peos (penis - wand), which directly relates to the creative power of magick and is symbolic of the Great Work.
You'll note that Crowley saw the vagina as a "cup" into which the creative "magick" of the penis was poured. Perhaps Ms. GaGa should find creative men with whom to sleep, and she might become even more creative?

I would offer up myself as a test subject, if she so wishes. I am, of course, creative enough to have made an animated film about penises (not safe for work):

I wonder if, during certain times of the month, Ms. GaGa's creativity is saltier than usual.
