"The Book of Boba Fett" is set on the sandy desert planet of Tatooine, and that means getting to see more of its regular residents, like the Tusken raiders, rancors and their handlers, and the Hutts. The series has also given us a bunch of information on the planet's bright-eyed brown-hooded thieves, the Jawas. After a gang of off-world Jawas gave Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) a tough time on "The Mandalorian," the Tatooine Jawas of "The Book of Boba Fett" robbed Fett of his armor, leaving him on the sand in his space undies. On top of teaching us that Mandalorians (and their offspring) are no match for these silly sand rats, in Chapter 5 of "The Book of Boba Fett," we learn that they totally have sex, sometimes with humanoids.
In the episode, Djarin returns to Mos Eisley and meets back up with his old comrade Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris), who wants to sell him a new spaceship to replace the destroyed Razor Crest. While he's there, Motto explains that she gained some of her knowledge about spaceship mechanics from dating a Jawa, and later gets hit on by another Jawa. That's right, "The Book of Boba Fett" has a Jawa trying to get into someone's pants. The Rule 34 fan artists out there are going to have a field day with this one.
What's Sex With A Jawa Like?
Motto tells Djarin that she once dated a Jawa, and that they were rather furry under their cloaks. Fans have been trying to figure out exactly what Jawas look like for decades, with many believing that they are similar to bipedal rats. Originally creator George Lucas developed them as a rat-like species, but the look was too theatrical and they decided to cover the creature's faces and go for the distinctive glowing eyes instead. In Chuck Wendig's "Aftermath" book, Red Key Raiders gangster Adwin Charu even says that being around them is like smelling a whole horde of wet rats. Jawas communicate partially through scent glands as well, which is a very rat-like thing to do. Rats are notorious for their ability to reproduce quickly and in high numbers, which would explain the sheer number of Jawas wandering the galaxy when other species don't seem quite as successful. Not only do Jawas f***, but they apparently do it fairly successfully.
This brings us to the intergalactic interspecies erotica of it all. There are a lot of different species with all kinds of anatomy in "Star Wars," and that means there is potential for a lot of weird sex. A person could theoretically have nookie with a Wookiee, bone a Bothan, or have a ménage à trois with some Mon Calimari. Donald Glover, who played space playboy Lando Calrissian in "Solo: A Star Wars Story," was on the money when he asked "how can you not be pansexual in space?" An open mind could lead to extraterrestrial ecstasy, after all. Just make sure you practice safe sex, because there's no telling what kinds of STIs you might get from sleeping with these furry little scrap scavengers.
