inner dork: animalistic sex

It's awhollotta short factoids today about animals.

Did you know...

Otters can contract herpes and spread it amongst themselves?
(Yet another reason not to have otter sex.)

Hamsters can have sex up to 75 times a day.
(That explains why I had so many hamsters suddenly, seemingly overnight, spring up in the cage when I was a kid)

Some female rabbits and ferrets can experience orgasm.
(No wonder bunnies are so floppy, friendly, and so quickly and happily repopulate.)

A male gypsy moth can smell the virgin female gypsy moth from 1.8 miles away.
(Talk about pheromones!)

Human birth control pills can control birth in gorillas.
(Yeah, but they can't remember to take them.)

Gorilla penises are a third of the size of an average male penis.
(That's why they don't feel the need to remember to take their birth control pills.)

If a male bottlenose dolphin rubs himself on the back of a passing turtle he is more than likely masturbating.
(Masturbating on the back of an unsuspecting turtle? Dirty dolphin. Dirty, dirty.)

last one...

The long, hook-shaped bone of a raccoon's penis has been used as a toothpick.
(To get out pubes?)

Wow. That means I can tell people I'm hung like a gorilla and not be lying. It'll sound impressive though.

Holy crap! I want to comment, but I have to get on a coference call. Son of a ......

puerileuwaite said...

Whew! Thank God that was a short call.

Oh, I have a factoid! Dogs and monkeys are two of the only (if not the only two) animals to have human sexual activities (between TWO people, so for instance, "flogging the dolphin" doesn't count) named after them:

1) Doggie Style
2) Wild Monkey Sex.

I just thought you should know.

No love for the otter sex? I'm so disappointed.

Twisted DNA said...

LOL. Interesting facts to know. I didn't know animals masturbate. I wonder why. If they want sex, all they have to find a mate. It's not like they have to date, buy dinner and talk sweet-crap to get laid :)

Dolphins are known to be the only other animal (other than humans) to engage in sexual activities for fun. The rest of the kingdom is doing the horizontal mambo strictly to procreate. No wonder dolphins masturbate.

Yeah, him. said...

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

ALTHOUGH I once heard porcupines as well... then again, that guy who told me that was kind of odd.

And with that, have a day and a weekend!!

Ph: Exactly. I am here to help and assist in any way that I can.

p: Then there is the fact that he can put his snake into my beaver while we are having wild monkey sex, doggy style.

Joe: Herpes, man, herpes. Herpes from an otter, I mean how would I explain that one?

Twisted: I don't think dolphins are the only animals who masturbate. I think all primates do, but not sure.

GG: masturbating is fun, why wouldn't the dolphins want in on it?..also, no wonder they are so happy and friendly. I wonder if they get off when people 'ride' on them? Hmmmm...

Him: Good Lord! 30 minutes? That is a lot of orgasm. Is it continuous spasms, ejaculation or what?

puerileuwaite said...

Wow PG. If you ever did a nature show, I would be SO there.

It's possible to have sex for PLEASURE? Holy shit! I've been going to the wrong church!

AeroAangel said...

wow...i actually appreciate this knowledge today...normally the inner dorks don't reach me on a personal level. i particularly like knowing that moths can smell a virgin from almost 2 miles away? that's fucking impressive! and the dolphin masturbation makes me laugh...maybe they aren't so different than humans after all.

I can't even get my wife to leave the heels on.

Party Girl said...

P: Cause I'm such an animal?

Aero: Well, I try to make it random enough that everyone, or at the very least someone, can learn something every once in awhile.

Crashtest: Maybe she's into dolphins....just sayin'

Dolphins with heels?
