In my DS edition (hardcover, published in the US by TOR, ISBN 0312868596, with
cover art by Julie Bell of Rob, Nick and a (straight-haired!) Maree heading
down the Babylon road in the hotel room watched by an oddly Elvis-biker-ish
Rupert), the reference to testicles is near the top of page 258:
""She's trying to tell you," I said, "that someone has sewn six rabbit's
testicles to your right breast."
Janine's head jerked upright. She stared at me for a second, obviously wondering
if I had said what she thought she heard. Then she settled for looking puzzled
and distant, turned and stalked gracefully away."

It seems to me that Janine has stolen the Goddess's vague look from LoCC.
