In the Bronx Zoo in New York, two gorillas performed oral sex in their enclosure, right in front of visitors. While some have looked away from their children, others have enjoyed this unexpected scene to say the least.
In New York, in the Bronx Zoo, it is possible to observe Congo gorillas, which live in an enclosure. While several families came to see them, two gorillas decided to surprise everyone and indulge in an unusual scene: under the astonished eyes of visitors, they began to practice oral sex, right next to the window !
One of the visitors filmed the antics and commented on the scene: “I was shocked, I didn’t know it was a natural act. I was in the gorilla exhibit with my daughter and my 4 year old niece. My wife had to stay out of the exhibit, with my sleeping son. I wanted to take videos, and the scene happened, “said the visitor.
In front of this scene, “Oh my God” or “Oh no, don’t look” escaped the crowd. While some parents immediately covered their children’s eyes, others burst out laughing. The video, which shows the gorilla giving his fellows a fellatio, quickly went viral on social media.
This is not the first time that antics of this kind have taken place between gorillas in this zoo. Seven years ago, a similar scene had already occurred in these monkeys, as oral sex is quite common in the animal kingdom. Indeed, according to researchers, gorillas can have sex only for pleasure, as they do with humans.
“While the chimpanzee shows little variation in intercourse, bonobos behave as if they have read the Kâma sutra, performing every position and variation imaginable,” said Steven D. Pinkerton, professor of psychiatry and behavioral medicine.
In addition, gorillas can have multiple partners during their lifetime and have same-sex relationships. Information that visitors to this zoo were obviously not aware of!
