The amazing sexuality of animals

Reading time: 5 min

Wild and domestic animals have a very different sexuality from humans. You are going to discover which animal species have the most numerous, the fastest, or even the most deadly relationships. Beware of sensitive souls and chaste ears, the animal kingdom is neither romantic nor egalitarian. It is wild.


lion sexualité animaux

The lion has the phenomenal capacity to be able to have up to 50 sexual intercourse per day with the lioness during the mating period which takes place every 3 months in the female. However, despite his imposing mane and devastating 190 kg of muscle, our King of the beasts is rather precocious with very short costs averaging 30 seconds. So once the act is over, the lion goes back to action every 15 minutes to make sure his partner is fertile. You could say that the lion has energy.

Another interesting detail, male felines have thorny protuberances on the penis that create pain during intercourse in females. Lions therefore often bite the neck of their partner in order to immobilize it to prevent it from biting or scratching them.


Venomous and deadly, scorpions have a sexuality in their image. Solitary, male and female scorpions only meet during the breeding season. The scorpions then begin a courtship display, pincers against princes, tail against tail, which can last between 5 min and 1 hour. But if the female is not seduced enough, the male will not hesitate to employ a less chivalrous method of biting her and injecting her with a small dose of venom to drug her and make her more docile.

As it is often said, sex whets the appetite, and this expression takes on its full meaning in female scorpions. Less deceitful but more cruel, these have cannibalistic tendencies and do not hesitate to attack their male partners in an attempt to devour them as soon as the fertilization is complete. Aware of this threat, the males immediately try to flee. However, 40% of females still end up devouring their partner.


sexualité reine des abeilles

In a whole hive, only the Queen bee is destined to have a sex life because she is the only one to be fertile. All other female bees take a vow of abstinence. The Queen is therefore the mother of all bees in her hive, with the exception of some worker bees which may come from other colonies.

6 to 10 days after birth, the queen bee leaves to mate with 12 to 15 males in a single period to fill her spermatheca and lay eggs during her 7 years of life.

To achieve this, the virgin Queen but already libertine will leave the hive, release pheromones, and attract drones. Mating takes place in mid-flight. The male penetrates the Queen, and the Queen contracts her abdomen causing both her suitor’s ejaculation and paralysis. The royal fuck then stops for the lucky ones who, paralyzed, tip back and fall from their Queen’s back. At the time of the fall, the males tear their genitals still stuck in the Queen causing them a fatal injury. These mutilated males sadly end their race on the ground and die a few moments later. As for the other male suitors who were not chosen, they will be banished from the hive and will die of hunger or cold. This is the fate of the losers.


Sexualité oiseau canard

With their beautiful colors and their certain elegance, the ducks seem rather peaceful. But a huge conflict exists between male and female ducks when it comes to copulating. Indeed, the male has an unfortunate tendency to want to reproduce without the consent of his partner. So the cane has developed a biological anti-rape mechanism.

As the male erects, his penis deploys in a spiral shape. And to prevent the female from being penetrated by the first comer, she has evolved biologically over time and transformed her vagina into a spiral but in the opposite direction of the male’s penis. Thus, the female prevents or complicates access to forced penetration of an unwanted individual. Clever the cane.


The sexuality of animals does not respond to any moral or sentimental code related to human beings, and this is completely understandable. In a nature where the entire environment is hostile to animals, their sexuality has only one goal, to transmit genes at all costs in order to sustain the life of the species.
