I think it's a bloody good design.

I don't see any spanking. FAIL.

Two rotting bananas do it on a lead.

OK, that makes up for it.

"Bugfuck" is one of my favorite terms that I rarely utter. Needs the "insex" tag.

Yep, that was pretty much as advertised.

A grasshopper laying eggs. A photo I took in Texas in between dead armadillos and a prison museum.

Hey, I'll admit it: I've always envied dragonflies for being able to get it on in the air.

The female has diversified in color and can come in pale green, violet and pink.

So jealous.
(Oh, that's not a typo?) Nevermind.

I love stuff like this. Particularly, the dragonflies and such; so, so weird. I only have one shot myself but it's of some hawt lady on lady action so it's all good.

I enjoyed those, thanks. Bees. Heart shaped dragonfly sex.

Walking back from the stream with buckets of water to my stone and adobe home, I'd stop to catch my breath and watch tiny, iridescent green June bugs mating in the apple orchards where I lived for 4 years. It surprised me what a rush I got from such miniature antics.

Insex, heh.

My favorite insect porn, although actually gastropod mollusks, is the marvelously sensual mating of leopard slugs.

In the sixth picture, that was me.

I had no idea that the whole thing was being photographed. Really.

Maybe I made 100 bucks, total, that night. It seemed fun at the time, but now I just feel cheap and dirty about it.

Needs more Isabella Rossellini.

Doesn't everything?

The Lady Bug or as it is known in the UK, the Ladybird should have a worse reputation than the mosquito as it is a voracious killer and devourer of its prey, the greenfly. However, its primary coloring (although red should signify danger even to us!) has given it a much gentler public image than it deserves.

And because greenfly are a pest, and gardeners want rid of them... I don't unsderstand any of why they wrote that up to make it seem like everyone should hate the ladybird(/bug).

It's like saying cats don't deserve the gentle public image they've been given., because really they kill rats.

I'd swat it.
