Okay folks, while I’m pleased so many are fascinated by Randy’s video, I’m also overwhelmed by the sheer number of science related sex videos flooding my inbox. It’s enough to make a marine scientist blush (and I’m starting to wonder if all this content may be setting off some kind of deviant cyberspace alarm). While I’ve not viewed every link, I assure you that the spectrum of species – and athleticism – is amazing. In any case, what follows is the best of what I’ve received in the mix. Note, this will be the last of such videos for now… although it may be a theme worth revisiting in the future considering the response.
Readers may remember I’m very fascinated in primatology and this ummm… ‘colorful’ video was submitted by Vanessa Woods of the Hominoid Psychology Research Group. She’s sharing the footage with us from all the way out in the Congo where she studies our endangered cousin, the bonobo. Vanessa is yet another great female science blogger at Bonobo Handshake where you can learn more about her research and interests.
Apparently, people think we look alike. You can decide. Interesting, considering I’m an accidental marine biologist who began pursuing primatology and she got her start in marine science. Go figure. A note from Vanessa:
‘Any one who thinks bonobo sexuality is exaggerated compared to chimps, I made this for you.’
