How the Virgin Mary got pregnant

According to ancient Christian tradition, it was through her ear. Details from

In both Eastern and Western art of the Annunciation, we often find that the trajectory of the descent of the Holy Spirit is not to the womb of the Virgin Mary, but to her ear. In complete deference to her virginity, the conception had nothing to do whatever with her female sexual organs, which remained forever intact. She did not conceive through her womb, but through her ear (conceptio per aurem).

Wasn´t Jesus supposed to have a brother named James? And if so how did Marys sexual organs remain forever intact?

@ F.U.D.: Not just one brother, but 4 of them: James, Joseph, Simon and Judas, and also some sisters, according to Matthew 13:55 en 56. It doesn't say how many sisters there were, and what their names were. Matthew apparently thought women were not important.
And he did not write anything about the way which the siblings were born.

According to Gérard Messadié, the "brothers" were sons of Joseph's first wife who was also named Mary. Same with the "sisters". That's how the Virgin Mary remained a virgin. Now, according to the Greeks of this era, the uterus of some women wandered all around their body, which could explain the conception by ear. However, it also made the women weepy and petulant, which gives a whole new idea of the Virgin Mary's attitude.

It'll probably get me banned, but if no one else is going to post it:

Man: Doctor, you have to help my wife. She wants me to have sex with her ear!
Doctor: That sounds serious! Are you really sure?
Man: Positive. Every time I try to put it in her mouth, she turns her head.
