    Interesting to read of instances in species where they have more gay sex than str8 sex. I wasn't previously aware of that but it makes sense.

    "Homosexual mounting between males tends to be more common than heterosexual female-male copulation among American bison, especially because females only mate with the bulls about once a year. During mating season, males engage in same-sex activities several times a day. More than 55 percent of mounting in young males is with the same gender."

    "Males also take to homosexual play but tend to leave their partner soon after, making it what we call in the human world a one night stand."

    Yep. Sounds like humans. icon_cool.gif
    I guess if they fell asleep afterwards, they'd fall out of the tree.icon_wink.gif

    Swans
    Homosexual couples account for up to 20 percent of all pairings annually. Almost a quarter of all families are parented by homosexual couples that remain together for years. At times, male couples use the services of a female by mating with her. Once she lays a clutch of eggs, the wanna-be fathers chase her away and hatch the eggs. Other times, they just drive away heterosexual couples from their nests and adopt their eggs.

    O.O

    I wonder if they gay animals also go out of their way to say they had an amazing time and can't wait to do it again and then ignore all the texts and calls from the animal they said it to.

    I read this article years ago. (This appears to be an updated version.) People who say being gay isn't natural need to be pointed to this.

    Being gay is natural, but the emotional side effects many gay men experience as a consequence of being gay is not something they like to experience.

    If being gay is natural (which it is), then ditching your last fuck (whether you are a top or a bottom) is also natural.

    Explain to me why some of us feel crappy after though? There must be some reason... many of you say "oh, it's all in the head...." as if the person has issues...Ironic ... because it is all in the head - however, the person doesn't have issues - it's just the way the wait for it... HUMAN BRAIN operates.

    Just as some animals are more monogamous than others, whether they engage in homosexual practices or not, so are humans.

    Humans tend to identify more with culture, it's our way of survival. Most human cultures tend to be polyandrous, with some monogamous, and very little polygyny, polygamy tends not to be at all... culturally speaking.

    It has a little to do human nature, but mostly cultural...

    just ... fyi

    So "ditching your last fuck" was judgmentalism?

    Regardless, even if the religious admit to homosexuality being natural in the animal kingdom, they'll continue to argue that humans, not bison were made in God's image. And since everyone knows God is heterosexual, we're right back to square 1.

    I love the Swan!

    Sometimes chase heterosexual couples away from their eggs so they can steal their eggs hahaha

    Gays are even bitchy in other species.

    I agree with theantijock. ^^^ It's nice to know we have correlates among our animal "bros," but the wackos can just turn it around and claim we've reduced ourselves to beasts.

    Some author on Nifty got wind of the gay dolphins some time ago and worked it into one of his stories. It was pretty funny. The dolphin fell in love.

    Actually, it does have to do with human nature - in fact, the whole reason humans have evolved to be a species so heavily dependent on culture for survival is due to the way the human brain functions.

    Humans have primary, secondary and tertiary emotions, while animals have only primary emotions.

    The human emotion jealousy for example, is a secondary emotion that is branched off of dominance - which is the primary emotion.

    Animals don't feel jealousy... they just know when their competitor is dominating them and when to dominate their competitor.

    The idea of culture evolved from the human's need to understand their secondary and tertiary emotions - such as "love" - what is love? Animals don't know what love is.. they just know it's their way of reproducing - to us, it's more complex - it may not even be involved with reproduction - but it branches off the basic human emotion of sexual arousal.

    Culture helps human interact with each other using secondary and tertiary emotions... and in fact, this is all because the human brain is unique when compared to other animals.

    SO, in the end, it is based on human nature.

    It was reported about 100 years ago to the Natural History Museum but they found it too shocking at the time to publish.

    If you'll note, I said little, not none.
    Animals feel plenty - depression, anxiety, jealousy, there are thousands of examples of animal emotion.

    If love had anything to do with the major developments of man kind we would all be hippies. Step out of the western world and you'll see marriages are still arranged, and are often more of a business transaction than of love. This is proven in most cultures throughout history.

    As I said, human's throughout history are often polygynous in nature, meaning one man, many wives. This idea that gay men hump each other and leave each other is a cultural one, specific to the western world and the history of gay suppression in our western culture.

    Any community college will tell you the same.

    I disagree.

    The rationale behind emotions and cultural development is that each group of people handle the communication of these emotions differently - which in turn, makes up what you define as culture.

    Love is handled differently in the middle east than in the western world.

    So, I still hold on to my argument that humans are different from animals in the sense that we have the capability to love one another as gay men - i.e: not just fuck and go - as some of you believe is set in stone.

    Whether you believe that it is due to culture, it doesn't make a difference, because what I'm saying is it is due to emotional connectivity.

    Culture is built upon how to express those connections. So, culture is essentially built upon the expression of emotions.

    If what you're saying is correct, then ALL gay men in the western world would be content with the fuck and go mentality.

    How come it isn't?

    That's because deep down, the human brain searches for something more- tries to find the deep meaning that love can become.

    Oh, and any third year course discussing the "psychology of sexual behaviour" will tell you that.

    Hmm, I gotta disagree... animals DO have culture... and language even... many do so... there are many traditions that certain tribes or "bands" of animals will carry out, and certain calls that only members of certain bands are known to make. Not to mention dialect and language differences in songbirds and whales.

    Also, many animals punish and reward their young for behaviour. That is "child-rearing" or "cultivating" them into the desired group behaviour. Hence, "culture"

    So yes, animals have culture... culture is not specific to humans... as for secondary and tertiary emotions, I know nothing about those, so I will not enter into that subject

    Lol, and Im sorry i had to laugh when you said animals don't know what love is. That to me is ridiculous. It is obvious when looking at the pairings of animals in say, birds, and compare that to human behaviour, that the animals are feeling exactly the same thing.

    Not to mention when you take a human child from its mother, or a baby kitten from its mother cat, the mothers will both be devastated, that too is love.
