More Weird Mating Habits: [Oct. 9th, 2005|12:30 pm]

The longest-lasting copulation, according to University of Arizona biologist John Alcock (interviewed for an August Knight Ridder story), is that of the lowly "stick insect" (of the phasmida family), which goes on for several months at a time, even though, he said, it is "not clear this is welcome to the female." The male attaches himself to the female's back, which allows her to continue with her daily routine during the mating, while also discouraging competitor males. According to other biologists, some ticks spend up to eight hours on what resembles foreplay, and butterflies, snakes and houseflies can also go on for hours.

Wow...That's pretty sweet. I think I would have a problem with a guy attaching himself to me for that long of a time, though...

And pigs can have hour long orgasms....

Although I have to say, dolphins scare me. Never go into the water if you are on your period and there are dolphins around. They have 3 foot triangular dicks and they will pierce your bathing suit to get at you. One of my friends from High School, before she moved on to Sea World, had her partner get raped by a dolphin because she was on her period.

Weird, huh?
