Oral sex is a rarity in the animal kingdom with just a handful of species (humans, bonobos) who participate in the act. Well, move over high-functioning primates because there’s a new, high-fellating mammal on the bj circuit, the short-nosed fruit bat. Yeah, we get it, “short-nosed…” We seriously can’t make this stuff up.
Random Fact #265: Due to the terms of his Federal plea bargain, Andrew is actually not allowed to watch this video!
Apparently, according to the paper recently published in PLoS ONE, about 70% of female short-nosed fruit bats engage in oral sex with their partners. Furthermore, “a positive relationship exists between the length of time that the female licked the male’s penis during copulation and the duration of copulation.” This may indicate that females who engage in fellatio may be, in fact, improving the likelihood of fertilization.
Just to recap the findings: All females, of any species, who engage in fellatio increase their genetic fitness. That will be all, thank you.
P.S. NVDH in da house.
