This cute little creature must have caught a video or two of mine, because fruit bats apparently enjoy oral sex! Female Chinese fruit bats give their mates blowjobs to prolong sex and apparently aid in conception by improving the sperm flow. Scientists say that they also might be preventing the spread of STI by licking away bacteria. I didn’t know bats could get STIs… I’m imagining little bat free clinics giving away little bat condoms.
Asides from primates, they are the first in the animal kingdom to be documented routinely giving oral sex, but they believe that it’s evolutionary… So maybe the rest of the critters will catch on eventually. I don’t want to see it, but I guess if it’s good for the population of endangered species, it’s a good thing, right?
