> “Our study suggests that female dolphins likely experience pleasure when the clitoris is stimulated during sexual intercourse, homosexual. behavior, and masturbation,” Brennan says. The mind bogles. Dolphin masturbation? They have no hands or fingers. I don’t know of any dolphin appendage that can reach the fun bits. Is there a dolphin equivalent of pillow humping? Homosexual? Again, this is a phenomenon that might require extensive research. Snout to tail 69? This article simply raises more questions than it answers. I’ve heard anecdotes of male dolphins molesting female keepers, so we know they are a randy bunch. Edit. Should have read more carefully. > The researchers note female dolphins will often rub each other’s clitorises using their snouts or flippers for sexual stimulation Wow, got it on first guess. Still want to hear about the masturbation though.

> the anatomy of the human clitoris wasn’t fully mapped until 1998. Researchers have a long way to go in understanding a historically ignored sexual organ. Well, that betrays a lot about the gender-biased focus of medical and scientific research and how much society values women. Oof.
