A recent study of fruit bats found cunnilingus to be a major part of their repertoire. While following a colony of 420 bats roosting in a fig tree over the course of 13 months, researchers witnessed 57 incidences of sex — both oral and intercourse. The female bats who received oral sex before intercourse were found to last longer during copulation. Imagine that. Oh, the power of foreplay.
“Initially, males groomed their penises to go erect before approaching females. When they gently touched females with their wings, females typically moved away, and males followed. When the females stopped moving, the males started licking the females’ vaginas,” reports Live Science.
I have to stop because this bat porn is getting way erotic. All those wild roostings in the fig tree are making me blush. Male bats have officially earned their stripes as the most giving dudes in the animal kingdom.

Bonobos are the most sexually open-minded members of the animal kingdom. They’ll try anything once. Because they tend to solve all their problems through sex instead of violence, they spend a whole lot of time having oral sex … and group sex, gay sex, and face-to-face sex. They’ve even been reported to French kiss. We have a lot to learn from the bonobos. [ABC News]
