Hot Monkey Sex ... with Deer - The Wordsmith's Forge

Hot Monkey Sex ... with Deer
In a fascinating turn of events, scientists have documented purposeful sexual activity between Japanese macaques and Sika deer.  The video is particularly hilarious.  I am intrigued for a number of reasons ...

1) Japanese macaques are known to throw super-intellects.  Imo's invention of the sand-free sweet potato and the floating rice trick have been documented.  Scientists gave the monkeys pieces of sweet potato to attract them; Imo thought of washing hers.  It made the process faster, so the scientists switched to rice.  Imo again put hers in water, skimmed off the floating rice, and had a quick snack.  

2) They have different traditions in different places.  This implies that brilliant monkeys occur repeatedly.  This is a big deal.  People tend to overlook how big a deal it is, but Homo ergaster  or African Homo erectus  had one inventor, ever.  They kept his or her brilliantly made hand-axe for about a million years ... and basically never changed it  or added any other tools based on the same principles.

3) Domestication is extremely rare outside of humans.  Social insects do it -- there are ants that farm fungi and others that herd aphids.  But what the Japanese macaques are doing is much more sophisticated.  They're selecting deer with a tolerance for monkey behavior.  Some of those deer are so phlegmatic they put up with being pulled, chewed on, and dry-humped.  Seriously, we have horses that won't put up with that much hassle.  The deer definitely get something out of the exchange: grooming and food scraps.  The monkeys are making very deliberate choices about which deer to approach.  Which means if this sticks, those tamer deer are going to get better health and better food, which boosts their reproduction, which will pass on those traits.  That means monkey sex is influencing deer sex.  You might not see the effects for a while, because this seems to be a new thing, but somewhere out there is a super-intellect who thought a deer would make a dandy fucktoy and paid for it.  Yes, the deer are effectively prostitutes.  They do make a choice -- some will walk away, others will tolerate the riding and humping for the perks.  Judging from the way one monkey was pulling on fur and antlers, it probably won't take long to figure out that you can steer  a mount that way.

Don't forget--there's still another benefit for the deer. A second pair of eyes watching out for predators is always welcome.

Well ...

I imagine that is more true of ordinary monkey-riding-deer scenarios than when the monkey is thoroughly distracted by rubbing her clitoris against the deer. ;)

Re: Well ...

You also have to wonder what's going on MENTALLY as well....seeing that these FEMALE monkeys are choosing MALE deer to mount.

Re: Well ...

Also because the male deer tolerate it more than female deer do. Perhaps there's enough sexual signaling for it to match. Though many of the monkeys seem to be bisexual.

Kinda makes you wonder if maybe the same thing happened with horses and people...

Yes ...


It could be true. Plenty of people have compared a horse to a vibrator. :D And women and horses have a bond as deep as men and dogs.

Moose Riders in the Snow???

And we have no firm idea on how far back domestication truly goes.....
Makes you wonder how many prehistoric ladies made pets of orphaned foals which sometimes went on to be tame enough to be trained to drag a travois. (It might have been a long while before anyone managed to tame more than the occasional freakishly gentle horse to do anything like allow a rider on its back.)
If anything, horses may have been a lot harder to tame than some species of the deer family are proving to be.
Try googling "tame moose".
Rather a pity our world already has motorized vehicles. Judging by what I've read, I doubt it would take much of a breeding program to produce a domesticated moose tame enough to take the place of horses in the far north.
Then couple that with the moose's ability to produce twin calves easily...
