Crazed Monkey Sex
We like to think of this as a culturally enlightened and scientifically progressive blog. Which is why we're deeply impressed by Susan Block, Ph.D's spectacular article on those tree-swinging swingers of the Congo, the Bonobo. Take it away, Ms Block:
"Just in case you don’t know a bonobo from a bonsai tree, bonobos, classified as Pan paniscus, are also called pygmy chimpanzees in primatology circles. We call them the horniest apes on Earth…Bonobos have some kind of sex almost every day, usually several times a day.
Such loving passion, such sexual dexterity, such clever, horny playfulness is found nowhere else on Earth except among certain humans.
But that’s not all that makes our kissin’ cousins, the bonobos, so worthy of our attention -- worthy enough to be our official mascots at the Dr. Susan Block Institute (we even call our staff the "Bonobo Gang"). It’s not just how they have sex, but how they use sex -- to maintain friendly relationships, to ease stress (e.g., Don’t be nervous, come here and sit on my face), as a form of commercial exchange (e.g., I’ll give you a blow job if you give me a banana), and to reduce violent conflict. That is, they seem to use sex to make peace. And that, in a coconut shell, is why we love bonobos."
Read on at SavvyInsider for all you can take about the insatiable sexual habits of these cuddly fornicators. And, if reading this has got you in the mood, you
are a sick puppy will be pleased to know we've got some Mantric Banana Split Lube in stock especially for the occasion. Go ape!
