When it comes to getting down and dirty in the rainforest, it seems hot-blooded female gorillas are the ones for steamy action. Associate Professor Dr Cyril Grueter, a primate expert from the University of Western Australia, is reported to have stumbled on the homosexual behaviour while studying the feeding ecology of the mountain gorillas in Rwanda. Two separate groups were studied and out 22 females, 18 were found to engage in sexual activity with other females, including engaging in genital rubbing. The reason for the behaviour seems to have no other function than sexual arousal, believe academics. Dr Grueter has been working with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and it was while on an month field trip that he began studying what was behind the female homosexual activity. His new research paper — titled Homosexual behavior in female mountain gorillas: reflection of dominance, affiliation, reconciliation or arousal? Speaking today to the Australian media, he explained how during a break in a miserable period of rainy weather he watched female gorillas attempting to court a male who was paying no interest. The behavior was not frequent but something nearly all the females indulged when males were not available. When the male is not available they try to entice another female to mate with them. Another African primate, the bonobo - formerly the pygmy chimpanzee - is known to engage in homosexual acts, behaviour that is believed to enhance social cohesion and reduce tensions among troops.

Tonight, after a season-long dry spell, Masters of Sex well and truly got its freak on, with three separate examples of the erotically off-kilter encounters that used to be its greatest attraction. All it took was a little animal instinct for the show to go bananas once again. Yet what they came up with was pretty interesting, in the end.
Apps At Your Fingertips. I tiptoed into my current relationship with a medical student dating two years, med school is almost overand one of the first things I brought up when he was pursuing me and he pursued me HARD was that I would not be the kind of person that would date a doctor. Early in our relationship, I gave some thought to the question of whether I would ever be willing to marry a non-Mormon. If we truly love someone, we have to make sacrifices. The point is that he should ASK her if this is true for her.
Is the answer really just communication and uninterrupted alone time. This can keep the relationship from getting too exclusive, and spending time with more people can give you a wider variety of things to do. Now I feel like a stepford wife.
