01:52 am - Hot gay animal sex
lediva mentioned a wonderful Salon magazine article about Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity a new book by Bruce Bagemihl. Here's the opening two paragraphs: The scientist gasps and drops the binoculars. A notebook falls from astonished hands. Graduate students mutter in alarm. Nobody wants to be the one to tell the granting agency what they're seeing.

A female ape wraps her legs around another female, "rubbing her own clitoris against her partner's while emitting screams of enjoyment." The researcher explains: It's a form of greeting behavior. Or reconciliation. Possibly food- exchange behavior. It's certainly not sex. Not lesbian sex. Not hot lesbian sex.

The article and the book get extra points for not blindly assuming that this behavior must be genetic (there is no evidence one way or the other for animals) and is well worth reading.
