Fruit Bats Have Oral Sex Too 17

Posted by samzenpus
from the pics-or-it-didn't-happen dept.
sciencehabit writes "Researchers at Guangdong Entomological Institute in Guangzhou, China, have observed oral sex for the first time in a non-primate. During intercourse, female short-nosed fruit bats lick the genitals of their partner, a possible ploy to increase copulation time. The discovery suggests there may be a biological advantage to fellatio."

    i am no expert in the field, but i have seen my dogs lick each others balls while sniffing them. does that count as oral sex?
  • My two dogs suck each other's cocks all the time, and it's clearly for fun, not hygiene.

    These researchers are wasting out time with their attention whoring. If they want to publish their results, fine. But if they want to get worldwide attention with their bat cock sucking, then they'd better suck my cock too.

      Why, if you already have two dogs to do that for you?

  • Useless pics are useless.

  • How does one put down studies like this on their resume/CV when searching for a job?

      "Documented undiscovered variation upon standard courtship behavior." And I guarantee you that some undergrad lackey in the future will have "Coded courtship behavior" as a line on their resume, because of course they have to document the frequency of fruit bat blowjobs. All the kinky stuff in science gets written up as "courtship behavior." If you see that on a resume, it's code for "Spent hundreds of hours watching animal porn."
