    Be very careful. You can easily injure them trying to vent sex with out having had the proper training. Metzer has a video on how to do it on their web page.

    I don't really recommend doing it yourself unless you absolutely have to. They're so fragile. And people will probably buy them whether you've sexed them or not. But if you do - please be gentle!
