    How do porcupines mate?

    Well, you guys know the old joke.   How do porcupines mate.....answer: Very Carefully!
    And yet, curiosity still has the best of me and I really want to know how in the world they actually mate. 
    I would find the answer myself but I'm at an airport departure gate with little to no internet bandwidth. 

    And hell why not, let's throw turtles into the mix

    Similar questions would be "how do snakes keep from accidentally envenoming themselves" or "why don't electric eels shock themselves". Animals have developed ways to protect themselves so they also know how to control and avoid that protection.
