All species have sex for pleasure. They do it because it feels good, not because it makes babies. Do you expect me to believe field mice have sex just to make babies? No. They do it because it feels good, and the babies are a side-effect.

^ Person above me is pretty damn ignorant. Lmfao.


Reproducing is a requirement for being an organism. EVERY living species must reproduce in order to keep its species alive.

Get an education please. Haha.

SpeakerBoy said...

If ONLY humans, bonobo monkeys, and dolphins have sex for pleasure, that means ALL other species do it strictly for reproduction. Riddle me this, just what in hell are all those homosexual bats trying to reproduce? You ain't making babies in that hole! You've got to be kidding yourself if you think NO pleasure is involved for the rest of the animal kingdom. Sex is not a chore, if it felt BAD we wouldn't continue to do it, and neither would the animals.

All Sex is Pleasurable for at Least One Participant.
Not All Sex is Re-Productive.
Not All Sex is Recreational.
Not All Recreational Sex is Non-Productive.
Pleasurable sex increases the frequency with which it will be performed. Increased couplings increase the chances of fertilization. Pleasurable sex is therefore a winning strategy for species survival. Individuals who don't find it pleasurable will not engage in it, and therefore leave no offspring.

An education is not some finite thing to hang on a wall, point at, and gloat over. A real education is a never ending process of observation and learning.

a woman cant get pregnant unless they have started their period. girls dont start their period until they are at least 8 years old, so the youngest mother couldn't have been 5 years old.

WRONG

In reply to the person above me, there is even a post on this website about a girl who has started puberty at like the age of 3 or 4 or something.

omg, come on people.... the must have a period to get pregnant thing is a myth. thats like saying you cant get pregnant if you have sex while you're on your period.
ignorance i tell you.

It is indeed possible for a female to produce fertile eggs before the age of eight it is called precocious puberty
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precocious_puberty
that link also documents the child who gave birth at 5 years
it is however very rare indeed

Where do these figures & stats come from ....??

"speaker boy"

What is meant about having sex "for pleasure" is when the animal has sex not in their period of heat. The homosexual bats have sex only while they are in heat, no other times. This makes their sexual pattern not for pleasure but just through pure instinct.


And your last comment... guess that means you have "street smart" ie no collage education?

you cant get pregnant before your first period because your body hasn't started preparing itself for pregnancy you fool you can only get pregnant if eggs are being released into the fallopian tubes and into the womb this starts happening with the first period -.- so no you cant get pregnant untill youve had your first period.

Deva said...

http://www.oddee.com/item_90966.aspx Read it if you don't think a 5 year old can get pregnant, But I see no point in arguing about animals having sex for pleasure. We don't know when they have sex because we aren't watching them everyday all day.

Um...why is everyone focusing on how early females can get pregnant and whether animals feel pleasure when there is a weird fetish involving INSECTS IN GENITALS?!

Maybe not every species has sex for pleasure, but humans are the only species we know for certain have the capacity to decide to have sex with the express intent of reproducing. Animals going off instinct don't know that sex leads to babies. Also, side note: the females of some species of bats lick their partner's penis during sex (yes, during. They're very flexible). This PROLONGS intercourse. Biologically, there is no reason for this. Pleasure-wise, plenty of reason.

Anonymous said...

Just so you know, you do not have to start your period to get pregnant. When you ovulate is when you can get pregnant, and it is easily possible to ovulate at an earlier age than when you start your period (which is called menstruation). Get your facts straight if you are going to post on here please.

ovulation- "The release of an egg cell (ovum) from the ovary in female animals"

Yes you have to have ur first period once in order to get pregnant. It means that you hav successfully produced a fertile egg and since it wasnt used, was expelled by the body in the form of your period. That is why the "you have to have your period to get pregnant" is true

I love how there are a bunch of people arguing over the reason organisms mate. -.-

Yes, it IS true that every organism is REQUIRED to mate through-out life, but that doesn't mean they cannot simply have intercourse for pleasure.

Male peacocks are beautiful so that they can attract females. That's because they WANT sex.

Lions mate over fifty times a day? That's because they like - scratch that, LOVE sex.

If you punch a horse and you punch a man, they'll both feel the pain...so why can't they both feel the pleasure when mating?

People seriously need to be a little more open-minded these days.

Well.... Reading this was fun. This has been going on for four years.... C'mon people. Lol and I agree with Voice Of Reason. More of us should be concerned that people like critters on/in their genitals.... That's nasty. Like for real. And the analogy above me is pathetic and uneffective btw.

There should be more of us concerned that some people like bugs crawling on/in their genitals.... That's nasty. And the analogy above me is stupid. If you cut off a humans head and cocroaches head, they both die. But it takes the cocroach 9 days.... None of us know what animals think during sex, therefore wether anyone here is right or wrong.... All of us are just stating opinions.

Bonobos chimps and gorrilas have been documented as having face to face sex. I think the term for pleasure is implying that they have sex out side of there periods of fertility or 'heat'.indicating that theyre doing it for reasons other than reproduction. N yes a five year old gave birth thats fucked but true

After ovulation (and the egg hasn't been fertilized) the lining of the uterus then sheds causing bleeding (mestruation). So unless they got pregnant on the exact ovulation that their period would have started -- you would have to of had your period before getting pregnant. Please go back to basic Health class people. It's not rocket science.

That's impossible you can not get pregnant unless you have commenced menstruation as the egg is fertilized within the fallopian tube. This means you must be getting your period. However different genes as well as life style make the timing of when menstruation starts different for everyone. It is not unheard of that a young girl gets her period before what is considered an average age. You must also take into account that this girl had the baby some time at the begging of the 1900s, 1910 if my random facts are correct people aged differently in earlier years, Romeo and Juliet were approximately 14 years old in real time yet reading the story now we perceive them to be much much older. There have also been skeletons found of a woman who through anthropological studies was discovered to have been alive for something like 7 years but had aged what a modern day human would in 80.

Why would a dog hump a persons leg if it didn't feel good? Why would a pig's orgasm last 30mins if it didn't like it, what a complete waste. The studies don't say that animals don't experience pleasure, the studies show that animals haven't been observed engaging in sex expressly for the pleasure (ie. The sex did not take place when the animal was not in heat). I for one think its a load of bull anyway, we can't see into the minds of an animal so we can only speculate.

I'm pretty sure what it means is that those three species are the only species doing it ONLY for pleasure. All other species do it for reproduction, its a built in instinct, the fact that it feels good is just a bonus. What do you think mating seasons are? They aren't the time of year when the males of the species are feeling particularly horney, its when reproduction is most likely to occur.

Anonymous said...

No

Anonymous said...

Animals don't think of sex the same way we do. They don't consciously think: I'm bored and wanna have fun. Lets have sex! It is all from INSTINCT. Animals don't know what sex is. They feel that sudden sexual urge (get horny) and it all goes from there. Evidence: a human child can masturbate with out knowing how... They get horny and instinctively touch themselves. Also, very small dog puppies can hump things when they don't know what sex is or an objective is, it's instinct that makes them so it. Other animals don't have as developed consious as us it all comes from instinct and their nature. They have sex due to instinct and babies and orgasms are the product that the animal did NOT PLAN TO HAVE BEFORE. The bat sex was accidental. Or to show dominance. You have a point but I'm afraid your argument is incorrect.

Anonymous said...

^ Mister smarty pants here is sort of right. I've read the comments from before and Ive got to say that there were some creative answers. There are ways to tell if an animal is feeling pleasure when having sex by their brain activity when doing it. Not that it is a big deal or anything but that is what some zooligists are working on. That and other things but that is beside the point, my THEORY is that humans and the other animals listed feel pleasure better then other spicies is due to their brain evololution. Idk but that is just what I think.
