Leopard slug sex is indeed hot

Compared to some species, human sex is boring, as Roxy Drew shows in this comic. NSFW, unless you work with kinky giraffes.

There's an entire book on this subject and it's fantastic.

There's another entire book on the subject (the bi and gay bits, mostly) and it's fantastic, too.

1) I actually left out the first step of giraffe courtship– the male smacks the female on the bottom to get her to urinate.

Surely there must have been a way to work this in!

Herbert Wendt's The Sex Life of Animals is a great read, if you can find a used copy.

Oh look – here's an available copy (although the "TOP EDGES ARE STAINED YELLOW")

Yeah, not aroused by drinking piss, or having sex through the hands, having black friends impregnate my wife, or hanging upside down on a slime rope.

You guys must be doing it wrong. All those cartoons were more boring than sex. (really, the split gill fungi just touch each other? bo-ring.)

NSFW, unless you work with kinky giraffes.

I wish, but the link is very SWF, in case anyone is wondering.

They seem like fun guys.

So "Eat a bag of dicks" is one of the nicest things you can say to a leopard slug.

Microcosmos is a pretty cool documentary featuring hot snail action

This week's New Yorker has an article by Jonah Lehrer discussing the puzzle of altruism in nature. He explains that vampire bats must feed almost constantly, as they can starve to death in just 60 hours. Then he says this:

"If a vampire bat fails to find a victim during the night, it will begin licking under the wings and on the lips of a chosen colony member. The animals then lock mouths, and the successful hunter starts vomiting warm blood. If such sharing did not take place, scientists estimate that more than eighty percent of adult vampire bats would die of starvation every year."
