Is it possible that gorillas have sex for pleasure? According to new research, it looks like they may have sex for pleasure and engage in lesbian sexual acts when rejected by male primates. The Australian research team witnessed female mountain gorillas engaging in lesbian sex for the first time, reports Independent. The behavior was documented during a research study in Virunga mountains located in Central Africa.

“Instead of seeing aggression between females over food we saw them engaged in sexual behavior which was quite surprising.”

Gorillas aren’t the only species to engage in homosexual behavior. There have been countless studies that have discovered other animals displaying homosexual behaviors. The research is the first time a gorilla was documented to have sex for pleasure, and not strictly to produce offspring.

It's just part of their natural behaviour.


The research started to “shed light on the origins of homosexuality,” as gorillas have similar DNA to humans. The scientist team expected to see a few lesbian gorilla couples but were blown away when they discovered 44 homosexual sexual encounters over the course of the study.

One big difference between the male and female and lesbian sexual encounters was the lack of aggression in the between the two female gorillas. Australian researcher, Dr. Cyril Grueter from the University of Western Australia told the Daily Mail that he could tell by observing that they were enjoying the encounter.

“They were obviously deriving sexual pleasure from each other. It usually happens that two females get on top of each other, rubbing their bellies and genitals together.”

Dr. Gueter watched the gorillas for two years, from 2008 to 2010, and 18 engaged in sexual activity with another female primate. They engaged in behaviors such as stimulating genitals and rubbing their bellies together. The researchers concluded that it was obvious from observing them that they were receiving great pleasure in the sexual act.

“It usually happens that two females get on top of each other, rubbing their bellies and genitals together, that’s the most frequent expression (of sexual intimacy). Our main conclusion is that it’s purely sexual behavior, they can easily shift from preference.”

Dr. Greuter further explained that it is purely a sexual act and the gorilla can easily switch their sexual preference to heterosexual if needed. He explained that it’s not they prefer the same sex; it’s just a sexual act. In other words, it was just a way to sexually satisfy themselves at the moment.

“It’s not necessarily that they have a same-sex orientation, it’s purely sexual behavior.”

Gorillas Engage In Lesbian Activity, Researcher Uncovers

New evidence of homosexual behavior in female gorillas has just been formally documented for the first time by an Australian researcher.


Researchers noticed that those females who engaged in same-sex relations would seek privacy. Dr. Grueter concluded that it might have been a taboo act, even among the gorillas. It caused the primates to look for privacy for the sexual encounter. Dr. Grueter felt the females looked for privacy to avoid being seen by the males in the group.

“There was also a tendency for such copulations (sexual intercourse) to take place in secluded places with dense vegetation.”

Over 25 percent of the homosexual acts that Dr. Grueter observed in the two-year study noticed that at least one female was involved with a male the day before or after the lesbian encounter. Dr. Grueter noted that females that were closely related did not typically engage in sexual acts. The researchers did see an aunt/niece pairing but deemed it a rare occurrence.

“Given that such homosexual interactions happened in a completely wild setting, the claim that it is an artifact of captivity is not applicable.”

Etymology / Definition of Masturbation The word masturbation is derived from the Greek word mezea ('penises') and the Latin verb masturbare ('to defile by hand or to disturb by hand'). Masturbation can be defined as deliberate self stimulation of ones genitals. As the etymology of the word suggests, hands are generally used to arouse the sexual organs which may result in orgasm. Men may fondle or stroke their penis with their hand or touch other erroneous zones (like the scrotum or anus). Women often rub the vulva, or gently stroke the clitoris and the minor lips (labia minora). Some women simultaneously play with the nipples of their breasts. Instead of using their hands, both males and females may also rub their genitals against some object, such as a pillow. Some females can reach orgasm by riding a bicycle or a horse. Masturbation commonly refers to sexual activities done alone (autoeroticism), but can be a sexual act between people. This is referred to as mutual masturbation, where one person stimulates their own genitals or their partners. Many people find the sight of their partner masturbating highly erotic. visit ifeelmyself.com


There are many special masturbation aids on the market. The most common of these is the artificial penis, also known as a dildo (from the Italian diletto - "delight"). Dildos can be made of wood, rubber, plastic or glass. Vibrators are also popular sex toys. They are like dildos, but battery powered or electric. Great for masturbation as well as partner sex play. Babeland have a great selection of sex toys. Watching pornography, reading erotica or cultivating sexual fantasies are common aids to masturbate. Humans are not the only animals to masturbate. Many other mammals have been known to masturbate in the wild and in captivity. Female Masturbation Techniques There are many different techniques women may employ to masturbate. Through experimentation, a personal preference may be found which gives that particular woman the most exquisite pleasure. Some common techniques are: *Inserting one or more fingers into the vagina to stroke the frontal wall of the vagina where the g-spot is located. * Stroking the clitoris and / or massaging the breasts. * In the bathtub or shower, using warm running water to stimulate the clitoris. * Lying face down and straddling a pillow (or something similar) and rubbing the vulva and clitoris against it. * Standing up, the corner of an item of furniture, or even a washing machine, can be used to stimulate the genitals. * Some women can orgasm by crossing their legs tightly and clenching the pelvic or leg muscles, which creates pressure and enhances blood flow to the genitals. Techniques, Sexual Response & Multiple Orgasms From the website: 'Women commonly masturbate by rubbing or applying pressure to the clitoris, mons, lips of the vagina, or some combination of these areas. The methods by which they do this varies greatly. Fingers or other devices may be used to rub the shaft of the clitoris in an up-and-down motion on either or both sides, or the shaft may be rubbed in a circular fashion. The vaginal lips may be gently pulled; this movement of the inner lips causes the loose skin covering the clitoris to move back and forth, creating a pleasurable sensation. Because the glans of the clitoris is highly sensitive, prolonged stimulation usually becomes irritating, and thus it is not often used as the focus of masturbation. Relatively few women (some sexologists estimate about 20%) insert anything into their vaginas while masturbating. Those who do usually insert just barely into the opening. However, some women completely insert fingers, dildos, vibrators, and other objects, such as bananas and cucumbers, during masturbation. All these methods may involve the use of various kinds of lubricants, and many women stimulate their breasts while stimulating their genitals. Some women use washcloths, clothing, pillows, furs, silks, or other such devices to aid their stimulation. Most women prefer lying on their backs, but some prefer standing or sitting. While standing or sitting, a woman may rub against certain objects, such as doorknobs, dresser drawer pulls, the edge of chairs, or bedposts. The woman may cross her legs and increase the pressure on her genitals by contracting her lower abdominal, gluteal, and thigh muscles. Water massages may be used. Some women derive sexual stimulation while riding a bicycle or a horse, activities that were at one time forbidden to women for that very reason. Female sexual response to masturbation is about the same as for males. Some women have reported orgasm 30 seconds from the start of self-stimulation, while the usual time is a little less than four minutes. Because of a woman's ability to have multiple orgasms, she may maintain her threshold of orgasm far longer than a man. ... When mutual masturbation is employed during intercourse, it may greatly enhance sexual response; some women report that they receive more intense pleasure from masturbation either by themselves or by their partner than they do from coitus, especially if their partner is a male who has only slight potency. This is because the clitoris receives little direct stimulation during pelvic thrusting in the missionary position.'

Definition of Sexual Fetish
First described by Sigmund Freud in 1887, sexual fetishism is a form of paraphilia where the object of affection is a specific inanimate object. 

A fetish is an object, not a body part. According to psychology or psychiatric terminology there is no such thing as a 'foot fetish'. That is called a partialism. This is when a part of the body is an extremely important part to achieve sexual arousal. A shoe though, could be a fetish.

A fetish is when a person is sexually aroused by a specific object or objects and is generally unable to achieve sexual satisfaction without that object being present.

What makes a fetish 'fetishism' by definition is that it interferes with your life. It's not just something you like to do, but something you have to do. In other words, there is no other way to have an orgasm except with a shoe, bra or panties present, or whatever that person is into.
