oddest pronunciation ever?

Okay I promise this isn't a joke, and I have YouTube footage to prove it.

I just heard the strangest pronunciation of the word "coitus" and I'm wondering if anyone else says it that way.

I'm from Alberta, Canada, anglo, and I say COY-tuss.

Check out the pronunciation in this video (not remotely x-rated, unless you consider sex viewed by an MRI to be x-rated, in which case only watch the first 1/3 of the video or so, till you hear her say it)...

for those who can't view it she says COE-i (short vowel like in "film")-tuss. I have honestly never heard anything like it.

Have I been saying it incorrectly this whole time?!
