Independent Scientists may have caught two animals from completely different species having consensual sex for the first time. A new paper, titled ‘Interspecies sexual behaviour between a male Japanese macaque and female sika deer’, describes what is thought to be one of the first ever recorded instances of “reproductive interference” between two very different animals. Sex between animals of different kinds has been reported across a wide range of the animal kingdom. But those tend to be seen only between animals that are closely related and look similar, and are understood in the context of their relationship to how they allow the animals’ species to survive. Those reports of very different animals are usually seen between animals that are born and bred in captivity.
A monkey got caught on camera having sex with a deer, and science says that it’s a breakthrough, because it’s apparently the first time that two animals from different species have ever been seen having consensual sex. Hey scientists, I hate to break it to you, but that deer has absolutely no idea what’s going on. The deer has a look on its face like “what the hell is this monkey doing? Maybe if I just let him tire himself out he will leave me alone” like when I have a couple of drinks and my woman lets me hump away even though she’s not into it. I think that this is much less the first documented evidence of inter-species romance, and much more like when your dog humps a pillow, the pillow has no say in the matter and no idea what’s going on. Sorry scientists, this is not a breakthrough, this is just a monkey sexually assaulting a deer.
