Seed magazine offers up a comprehensive article on the gay animal kingdom, providing a laundry list of animal sexual habits: “Giraffes have all-male orgies. So do bottlenose dolphins, killer whales, gray whales, and West Indian manatees. Japanese macaques, on the other hand, are ardent lesbians; the females enthusiastically mount each other.

Male bonobos engage in “penis fencing,” which leads, surprisingly enough, to ejaculation. They also give each other genital massages.” Don’t forget about the storks!

There weren’t any problems like that.”
