Spend a little time getting to know the amenities of an ORAL desk!
Desk Scouting is an Action card (a card with a one-shot effect). In the upper right, you can see that it costs 6 Action Points (AP) and 1 Male Gender Point (Male GP). You get 10 AP and 0 GP at the beginning of your turn (your "refill" step).
So how do you get GP? With Haven cards!
Boy Toy's dorm!
So you spend 4 AP to play Moorlands, and it stays in the scene. Then on your next turn, you refill to 10 AP and 1 Male GP, meaning you can play Desk Scouting.
Desk Scouting allows you to get more Havens into the scene to play powerful cards! It lets you look through your deck (your "black book") for a Home Haven (the four Home Haven cards are Moorlands (Male), Forests (Female), Heights (Herm), and Outskirts (Otherkind)), then everyone can put a Home Haven into the scene for free!
You might think, "But wait, that helps my opponents, too! Why would I want to do that?" Well...
* Many players play special Haven cards instead of the regular Home Haven cards to get their GP.
* You can wait to play Desk Scouting until you're certain that your opponent has no Home Havens in his or her hand.
* If you're playing a team game, play Desk Scouting when the time is right for your teammates to benefit from it!
Desk Scouting and more of Boy Toy's naughtiness can be found in the Welcome Freshmen 4-player deckbox!

So this is pretty much "Dicks Everywhere" but all around everywhere.

No, he means Dickscouting--an Action from Tribes of Tanglebrook (costing 5 AP and 1 M GP) that searches your Black Book for a Haven other than a Home Haven and adds it to your hand. Notably, you still have to play the Haven on your own terms. :)

Dicks Everywhere is the inverse card to Dick Scouting. So yes, both exist.

Do you mean 'Dicks Everywhere', or is that yet another dickly-named card? =P

There IS a card called dick scouting, though. Just not in this set.
