For too long now have We observed that when Humans speak of themselves and the animals of Nature it is oftentimes attached to personal judgments which express themselves in vocabulary. Nothing is more evident in this practice through the use of such terms as “Deviancy”. When an actual study of animals within Nature is conducted we discover that all sexual practices that a minority of Humans term as “deviant” is clearly seen within Nature and is therefore in no way “Deviant”. Let us examine some of these studies which have yet to be be banned from the public.
It is generally agreed that the closest animals in intellect to Humans are the Cetaceans and the Apes, it is still not unnatural to observe such practices as masturbation, homosexuality and paedophilia among many other animals. Let us examine the Dolphins.
Here is an amusing video about Dolphins
It is not unnatural to discover masturbation, paedophilia and homosexuality being practiced among the animals in Nature. Sadly it is practically impossible to locate scholarly articles about paedophilia and nature on the internet as it seems to be flooded by the media with hysteria news articles.
Here we will provide an excellent article about this topic below.
Dolphins Do It
by Earl Koenig
THERE IS GOOD evidence for the view that man/boy love is rooted in our earliest social evolution. If true, then no amount of suppressive legislation, beefed-up police powers, or psychological conditioning will ever be able to eradicate it without fundamentally altering and impairing something essential and vital in human nature.
Intergenerational homosexuality has been observed repeatedly in one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet. Dolphins not only engage in homosexuality, but also the cetaceous equivalent of boy-love. In what has come to be regarded as the “classic observations of dolphins at the Marineland of Florida,” marine biologists A.F. McBride and D.O. Hebb published their findings in the Journal of Comparative and Physiological Psychology. Their landmark study revealed that sexual play among young male dolphins was so common it seemed to typify a pre-adult stage. Not as common but nonetheless frequent were sexual encounters between maturing male dolphins and fully adult males. These liaisons were not matters of dominance and submission. Indeed, the younger dolphins often sought out the older males. Force or coercion never appeared in such contacts.
As McBride and Hebb reported, “In the spring of 1940, there were two large males in the tank and two younger males, smaller and subordinate…. The two larger males repeatedly attempted intromission with the younger ones. In the homosexual activity the active (or `male’) male swims upside-down under the passive (or `female’) male.”
The legendary links between human and dolphin may be closer than we ever suspected, especially if Desmond Morris, the popular science writer, is correct in his belief that both humans and dolphins share the same evolutionary path until some common ancestor decided to make its home in the sea, leaving us behind on the shore (see his The Human Zoo). In any case, intergenerational same-sex behavior is commonly displayed among a higher species with which people feel emotionally akin (for whatever reasons), adequately demonstrating that such behavior is by no means “unnatural.”
If American moralists are scandalized by the dolphin’s sex practices, how much more offended might they be by the behavior of their own ancestors, the founders of western civilization, more than 4000 years ago? In his deeply researched investigation of the Indo-European peoples of the third millennium B.C., Rick Fields recreated their ceremonial life: “Very probably they practiced ritual pederasty, like some of the warriors in New Guinea. This custom was known among warrior societies in Sparta and Crete, where young boys were ‘captured’ by older warriors as part of initiation. It was also found among the Celts and Germans.”
While it is generally known to have been accepted among ancient Greeks and Romans, this far older Indo-European behavior demonstrates that boy-love extends back in time thousands of years to the very roots of civilized humankind. It also contradicts the assertion that homosexuality exists only when a civilization becomes over-crowded and declines, giving rise to “unnatural” social practices, since the Indo-European peoples of that period did not build cities and lived very close to nature in scattered population groups. History tells us that the culture-bearers who arose from “ritual pederasty” gave us the Greek, Roman, Celtic, and Germanic civilizations, which the haters of boy-love seem to enjoy, nonetheless.
Obviously, man/boy-love has been part of our human heritage from the beginnings of civilization, if not long before, as parallel behavior among our dolphin cousins indicates. To suddenly condemn such a natural, age-old impulse is to thwart the millennial course of historical development. Who are the real perverts?
These few facts represent a relative splinter of information from the vast body of evidence supporting the virtue of man/boy-love. Unfortunately, none of it counts for anything among the moral demagogues and their emotionally manipulated followers, because the mob-mentality, deranged by passionate hatred, is oblivious to reason. It may nevertheless be salubrious for us to know that “the love ashamed to speak its own name” was regarded with religious reverence from the golden ages of prehistory and is still freely celebrated by our dolphin friends. In that, perhaps, we may take an extra measure of quiet pride.
It is not surprising to discover that closeness with Humans can at times also result in dolphins desiring recreational sex with Humans. Observed by John Lily and family and other humans in nature which helps to confirm our position of Sex as being a recreational activity and healthy form of exercise for all ages.
These “non-deviant” behaviors are also observed among the Apes. Here is an excellent article that discusses the behavior of Bonobo Apes which are closer to Humans than the Chimpanzees. Another article we will also provide below.
Casual Sex Play Common Among Bonobos
Sex among our closest relatives is a rather open affair. from DISCOVER
By Meredith F. Small|Monday, June 01, 1992
Maiko and Lana are having sex. Maiko is on top, and Lana’s arms and legs are wrapped tightly around his waist. Lina, a friend of Lana’s, approaches from the right and taps Maiko on the back, nudging him to finish. As he moves away, Lina enfolds Lana in her arms, and they roll over so that Lana is now on top. The two females rub their genitals together, grinning and screaming in pleasure.
This is no orgy staged for an X-rated movie. It doesn’t even involve people—or rather, it involves them only as observers. Lana, Maiko, and Lina are bonobos, a rare species of chimplike ape in which frequent couplings and casual sex play characterize every social relationship—between males and females, members of the same sex, closely related animals, and total strangers. Primatologists are beginning to study the bonobos’ unrestrained sexual behavior for tantalizing clues to the origins of our own sexuality.
In reconstructing how early man and woman behaved, researchers have generally looked not to bonobos but to common chimpanzees. Only about 5 million years ago human beings and chimps shared a common ancestor, and we still have much behavior in common: namely, a long period of infant dependency, a reliance on learning what to eat and how to obtain food, social bonds that persist over generations, and the need to deal as a group with many everyday conflicts. The assumption has been that chimp behavior today may be similar to the behavior of human ancestors.
Bonobo behavior, however, offers another window on the past because they, too, shared our 5-million-year-old ancestor, diverging from chimps just 2 million years ago. Bonobos have been less studied than chimps for the simple reason that they are difficult to find. They live only on a small patch of land in Zaire, in central Africa. They were first identified, on the basis of skeletal material, in the 1920s, but it wasn’t until the 1970s that their behavior in the wild was studied, and then only sporadically.
Bonobos, also known as pygmy chimpanzees, are not really pygmies but welterweights. The largest males are as big as chimps, and the females of the two species are the same size. But bonobos are more delicate in build, and their arms and legs are long and slender.
On the ground, moving from fruit tree to fruit tree, bonobos often stand and walk on two legs—behavior that makes them seem more like humans than chimps. In some ways their sexual behavior seems more human as well, suggesting that in the sexual arena, at least, bonobos are the more appropriate ancestral model. Males and females frequently copulate face-to-face, which is an uncommon position in animals other than humans. Males usually mount females from behind, but females seem to prefer sex face-to-face. “Sometimes the female will let a male start to mount from behind,” says Amy Parish, a graduate student at the University of California at Davis who’s been watching female bonobo sexual behavior in several zoo colonies around the world. “And then she’ll stop, and of course he’s really excited, and then she continues face-to-face.” Primatologists assume the female preference is dictated by her anatomy: her enlarged clitoris and sexual swellings are oriented far forward. Females presumably prefer face-to-face contact because it feels better.
Like humans but unlike chimps and most other animals, bonobos separate sex from reproduction. They seem to treat sex as a pleasurable activity, and they rely on it as a sort of social glue, to make or break all sorts of relationships. “Ancestral humans behaved like this,” proposes Frans de Waal, an ethologist at the Yerkes Regional Primate Research Center at Emory University. “Later, when we developed the family system, the use of sex for this sort of purpose became more limited, mainly occurring within families. A lot of the things we see, like pedophilia and homosexuality, may be leftovers that some now consider unacceptable in our particular society.”
Depending on your morals, watching bonobo sex play may be like watching humans at their most extreme and perverse. Bonobos seem to have sex more often and in more combinations than the average person in any culture, and most of the time bonobo sex has nothing to do with making babies. Males mount females and females sometimes mount them back; females rub against other females just for fun; males stand rump to rump and press their scrotal areas together. Even juveniles participate by rubbing their genital areas against adults, although ethologists don’t think that males actually insert their penises into juvenile females. Very young animals also have sex with each other: little males suck on each other’s penises or French-kiss. When two animals initiate sex, others freely join in by poking their fingers and toes into the moving parts.
One thing sex does for bonobos is decrease tensions caused by potential competition, often competition for food. Japanese primatologists observing bonobos in Zaire were the first to notice that when bonobos come across a large fruiting tree or encounter piles of provisioned sugarcane, the sight of food triggers a binge of sex. The atmosphere of this sexual free-for-all is decidedly friendly, and it eventually calms the group down.”What’s striking is how rapidly the sex drops off,” says Nancy Thompson-Handler of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, who has observed bonobos at a site in Zaire called Lomako. “After ten minutes, sexual behavior decreases by fifty percent.” Soon the group turns from sex to feeding.
But it’s tension rather than food that causes the sexual excitement. “I’m sure the more food you give them, the more sex you’ll get,” says De Waal. “But it’s not really the food, it’s competition that triggers this. You can throw in a cardboard box and you’ll get sexual behavior.” Sex is just the way bonobos deal with competition over limited resources and with the normal tensions caused by living in a group. Anthropologist Frances White of Duke University, a bonobo observer at Lomako since 1983, puts it simply: “Sex is fun. Sex makes them feel good and therefore keeps the group together.”
Sexual behavior also occurs after aggressive encounters, especially among males. After two males fight, one may reconcile with his opponent by presenting his rump and backing up against the other’s testicles. He might grab the penis of the other male and stroke it. It’s the male bonobo’s way of shaking hands and letting everyone know that the conflict has ended amicably.
Researchers also note that female bonobo sexuality, like the sexuality of female humans, isn’t locked into a monthly cycle. In most other animals, including chimps, the female’s interest in sex is tied to her ovulation cycle. Chimp females sport pink swellings on their hind ends for about two weeks, signaling their fertility, and they’re only approachable for sex during that time. That’s not the case with humans, who show no outward signs that they are ovulating, and who can mate at all phases of the cycle. Female bonobos take the reverse tack, but with similar results. Their large swellings are visible for weeks before and after their fertile periods, and there is never any discernibly wrong time to mate. Like humans, they have sex whether or not they are ovulating.
What’s fascinating is that female bonobos use this boundless sexuality in all their relationships. “Females rule the business—sex and food,” says De Waal. “It’s a good species for feminists, I think.” For instance, females regularly use sex to cement relationships with other females. A genital-genital rub, better known as GG-rubbing by observers, is the most frequent behavior used by bonobo females to reinforce social ties or relieve tension. GG-rubbing takes a variety of forms. Often one female rolls on her back and extends her arms and legs. The other female mounts her and they rub their swellings right and left for several seconds, massaging their clitorises against each other. GG-rubbing occurs in the presence of food because food causes tension and excitement, but the intimate contact has the effect of making close friends.
Sometimes females would rather GG-rub with each other than copulate with a male. Parish filmed a 15-minute scene at a bonobo colony at the San Diego Wild Animal Park in which a male, Vernon, repeatedly solicited two females, Lisa and Loretta. Again and again he arched his back and displayed his erect penis—the bonobo request for sex. The females moved away from him, tactfully turning him down until they crept behind a tree and GG-rubbed with each other.
Unlike most primate species, in which males usually take on the dangerous task of leaving home, among bonobos females are the ones who leave the group when they reach sexual maturity, around the age of eight, and work their way into unfamiliar groups. To aid in their assimilation into a new community, the female bonobos make good use of their endless sexual favors. While watching a bonobo group at a feeding tree, White saw a young female systematically have sex with each member before feeding. “An adolescent female, presumably a recent transfer female, came up to the tree, mated with all five males, went into the tree, and solicited GG-rubbing from all the females present,” says White.
Once inside the new group, a female bonobo must build a sisterhood from scratch. In groups of humans or chimps, unrelated females construct friendships through the rituals of shopping together or grooming. Bonobos do it sexually. Although pleasure may be the motivation behind a female-female assignation, the function is to form an alliance.
These alliances are serious business, because they determine the pecking order at food sites. Females with powerful friends eat first, and subordinate females may not get any food at all if the resource is small. When times are rough, then, it pays to have close female friends. White describes a scene at Lomako in which an adolescent female, Blanche, benefited from her established friendship with Freda. “I was following Freda and her boyfriend, and they found a tree that they didn’t expect to be there. It was a small tree, heavily in fruit with one of their favorites. Freda went straight up the tree and made a food call to Blanche. Blanche came tearing over—she was quite far away—and went tearing up the tree to join Freda, and they GG-rubbed like crazy.”
Alliances also give females leverage over larger, stronger males who otherwise would push them around. Females have discovered there is strength in numbers. Unlike other species of primates, such as chimpanzees or baboons (or, all too often, humans), where tensions run high between males and females, bonobo females are not afraid of males, and the sexes mingle peacefully. “What is consistently different from chimps,” says Thompson-Handler, “is the composition of parties. The vast majority are mixed, so there are males and females of all different ages.”
Female bonobos cannot be coerced into anything, including sex. Parish recounts an interaction between Lana and a male called Akili at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. “Lana had just been introduced into the group. For a long time she lay on the grass with a huge swelling. Akili would approach her with a big erection and hover over her. It would have been easy for him to do a mount. But he wouldn’t. He just kept trying to catch her eye, hovering around her, and she would scoot around the ground, avoiding him. And then he’d try again. She went around full circle.” Akili was big enough to force himself on her. Yet he refrained.
In another encounter, a male bonobo was carrying a large clump of branches. He moved up to a female and presented his erect penis by spreading his legs and arching his back. She rolled onto her back and they copulated. In the midst of their joint ecstasy, she reached out and grabbed a branch from the male. When he pulled back, finished and satisfied, she moved away, clutching the branch to her chest. There was no tension between them, and she essentially traded copulation for food. But the key here is that the male allowed her to move away with the branch—it didn’t occur to him to threaten her, because their status was virtually equal.
Although the results of sexual liberation are clear among bonobos, no one is sure why sex has been elevated to such a high position in this species and why it is restricted merely to reproduction among chimpanzees. “The puzzle for me,” says De Waal, “is that chimps do all this bonding with kissing and embracing, with body contact. Why do bonobos do it in a sexual manner?” He speculates that the use of sex as a standard way to underscore relationships began between adult males and adult females as an extension of the mating process and later spread to all members of the group. But no one is sure exactly how this happened.
It is also unclear whether bonobo sexuality became exaggerated only after their split from the human lineage or whether the behavior they exhibit today is the modern version of our common ancestor’s sex play. Anthropologist Adrienne Zihlman of the University of California at Santa Cruz, who has used the evidence of fossil bones to argue that our earliest known non-ape ancestors, the australopithecines, had body proportions similar to those of bonobos, says, “The path of human evolution is not a straight line from either species, but what I think is important is that the bonobo information gives us more possibilities for looking at human origins.”
Some anthropologists, however, are reluctant to include the details of bonobo life, such as wide-ranging sexuality and a strong sisterhood, into scenarios of human evolution. “The researchers have all these commitments to male dominance [as in chimpanzees], and yet bonobos have egalitarian relationships,” says De Waal. “They also want to see humans as unique, yet bonobos fit very nicely into many of the scenarios, making humans appear less unique.”
Our divergent, non-ape path has led us away from sex and toward a culture that denies the connection between sex and social cohesion. But bonobos, with their versatile sexuality, are here to remind us that our heritage may very well include a primordial urge to make love, not war.
It is time for the “majority” to stand up and say “Enough!” to those minority of Humans who enjoy using shame, fear and lies to enforce their power over others approach to Human sexuality and expression through such terms as “Deviant”
