DLD 10/30: Fruit Bat Fellatio 38

Fellatio By Fruit Bats Prolongs Copulation Time This is great: Oral sex is widely used in human foreplay, but rarely documented in other animals. Fellatio has been recorded in bonobos Pan paniscus, but even then functions largely as play behaviour among juvenile males. The short-nosed fruit bat Cynopterus sphinx exhibits resource defence polygyny and one ...

You can keep your god-damn baseball cards, College Boy: DLD 102609 86
