  • the amount of sex some species have boggles the mind.

  • How much sex is too much sex.

  • What animal can mate for 14 hours straight.

  • Which marine creature uses the largest penis in the world to copulate?

  • Let's find out.

  • We're gonna start with dolphins because like humans, we know they have sex just for fun.

  • Sometimes animals who engage in sex for reasons besides reproduction tend to have a lot of it because sex feels good.

  • Dolphins are a prime example of this.

  • They will copulate even if the female cannot get pregnant at the time.

  • What makes the amount of sex dolphins have even more surprising is not just that they do it a lot, but how many times it can occur within a short period when a male wants to mate, he begins posturing in front of a potential partner.

  • If successful, the dolphins will line up stomach to stomach And intercourse will begin.

  • Dolphin sex is rather quick though, as the act is normally over and under a minute.

  • But here's where things get crazy.

  • Dolphins conduct many rounds of intercourse in a very short amount of time.

  • Researchers have recorded two dolphins having sex 15 times in 15 minutes.

  • That number alone is more sex than most animals will have in a year or even in their lifetime.

  • And remember dolphins don't just engage in sex for reproductive purposes, but each one of their short bouts can be a pleasurable experience as well the next animal you've probably never heard of.

  • But unlike dolphins, the sex between these animals can last a long time.

  • We're talking a really, really long time.

  • The brown anti kindness are marsupial mice that live in Australia for the amount of time they live.

  • They have a ton of sex females mate with as many partners as possible, allowing for multiple sexual encounters in a short period of time.

  • However, there's only so much time in a day and since the brown and kindness sex lasts around 14 hours, this is a limiting factor.

  • Males begin mating once a year and go at it for a whole month.

  • During this time, all the male does is have sex and remember each time he engages in the act, It can last for up to 14 hours.

  • The male brown antique iness are so focused on sex that they barely eat, sleep or do anything else for a whole month.

  • Once to brown antique dinosaur done mating, they'll rest for a brief period of time and then go in search of their next partner.

  • Whoever all this long sex takes its toll on the body and the male brown had to kind of literally dies from exhaustion after the sex filled month.

  • This means that at the beginning of the month that the male is a virgin and at the end of the month he is dead from having 14 hour sex dozens of times.

  • You might have to wonder is this such a bad way to go.

  • The brown and kindness is a small mouse, but our next species is a large, aggressive and horny.

  • Actually it would be more apt to say tuskegee, As the next animal on our list of most sexually active species is the walrus.

  • Male walruses can weigh up to £3700 when they're ready to mate, which is frequently.

  • They'll make loud vocal sounds that click, pulse and whistle.

  • The largest and most powerful male walruses have a harem of females that they have sex with.

  • This actually happens underwater probably because it be too dangerous for the massive animals to have sex on land due to the danger of someone being crushed.

  • Female walruses tend to make only once every 2 to 3 years, which means if the male wants to make more frequently, it needs a large harem of females.

  • That being said, the male walrus has the largest penis of any animal in the world.

  • When erect, the walrus penis can reach up to 30 inches, which is used to impregnate as many females as possible during mating season.

  • So when it comes to walruses, it's the male of the species who are doing most of the copulating our next species, often considered to be the king and queen's of the savannah.

  • However, what makes lions especially unique is their mating habits, a pride of lions can be made up of as many as 30 individuals.

  • However, not all of them are able or allowed to mate when a lioness goes into heat, she is only fertile for around four days and you know what that means.

  • If she wants to get pregnant, she needs to have a lot of sex since four days is in a very long time.

  • This means that lions made several times an hour when the females in heat.

  • This is one of the highest frequencies of any species having sex multiple times an hour can be exhausting, but the lions keep added as the window for reproductive success is short.

  • The interesting thing is that after the four hour days of nonstop sex, the lioness may still not be pregnant.

  • In this case, the lioness goes back into heat about two weeks later and the sex starts all over again.

  • This means that every two weeks the lions are going at it like rabbits until the female gets pregnant.

  • And speaking of rabbits, these animals have become synonymous with having massive amounts of sex.

  • Unlike most animals, rabbits are fertile all year round.

  • It could have multiple litters a year.

  • They also don't need to be in heat to reproduce.

  • As the act of sexual intercourse is what causes a female rabbit to ovulate a female rabbit allows male rabbits to have sex with her about 14 out of every 16 days.

  • This means for every two days of rest, the female rabbit may have had two weeks worth of sex.

  • Male rabbits on the other hand, are good to go whenever, so if the female will allow it, the male rabbits will have sex every day, the short beaked echidna is another animal that has a lot of sex, but it's the ritual that leads up to the way they have sex that makes each round particularly unique.

  • The females of the species of a kid now are actually the ones having the most sex.

  • This is because she will have a line of about nine males following her around for an entire month waiting for her to be ready to mate.

  • There's no sex during this time, but once the female is ready, the kidneys go crazy.

  • This next part is especially weird.

  • So prepare yourself.

  • The female short beaked echidnas have a forked reproductive tract.

  • This would make sex with a single penis very difficult, but luckily for the males of the species, they have a penis with four heads and it gets crazier after one of the heads, ejaculate semen into the female.

  • The male will insert a different penis head that still contains sperm and go again.

  • This means that each time the kidneys made, they're actually having sex four times.

  • And if you do the math.

  • This means that for each time the female has sex with one of the nine males that followed her around for a month, She will have sex with 36 different penis heads.

  • Our next species wants to have a lot of sex, but since during mating season, males outnumber females around 8-1, only a very few get lucky.

  • The Australian giant cuttlefish meat in the same location known as pointy.

  • Lowly every winter to engage in a massive, orgy.

  • the amount of calculating that occurs during this time in the large gathering of sex crazed cuttlefish is astounding.

  • The problem is that the males outnumber females by a lot.

  • This means that sex between cuttlefish can be challenging if you're not the biggest and brightest in the orgy.

  • But even the smaller cuttlefish want to have sex so they'll actually change their coloring to disguise themselves as females and enter the orgy incognito By doing this, they may eventually run into an actual female and get the chance to reproduce.

  • And with so many males swarming around the cuttlefish orgy, it's inevitable that a female will have sex numerous times during that one session.

  • This provides the opportunity to have a lot more sex than any animal in a monogamous relationship during the course of their life, it probably comes as no surprise that primates have a lot of sex.

  • Humans are primates and we definitely have more sex than most animals because we do it for pleasure as well as reproduction.

  • But our distant cousin, the bonobo puts our species to shame bonobos are a species of apes that live in the congo.

  • What makes them particularly unique is they have the most sex out of any other primate species and bonobos aren't picky with who they have sex.

  • They will engage in intercourse with the opposite sex as well as the same sex.

  • They obviously have sex for more reasons than just reproduction.

  • And although some of the union's maybe for pleasure, many scientists believe that bonobos have frequent sex to strengthen bonds within their societies.

  • The copious amounts of copulation happening within a group of bonobos could be to show hierarchy and dominance in the group, relieve tension and conflicts or just to solidify bonds with one another.

  • But the amount of sex itself is not the only fascinating thing about bonobos.

  • They engage in some sexual activities in some pretty creative ways.

  • Researchers have recorded bonobos having sex while swinging and in other acrobatic positions.

  • Sex for bonobos seems to be as creative as it is fun or meaningful.

  • This is so true that a National Geographic biologist named franz Devil even said.

  • Whereas the chimpanzee shows little variation in the sexual act, bonobos behave as if they've read the kama sutra performing every position in variation.

  • One can imagine.

  • It is also interesting to note that there is much less conflict in bonobo societies than in other primate species.

  • And this includes humans.

  • So perhaps we could learn something from the bonobos and practice more love instead of war, or at least more sex instead of fighting so much with one another and this brings us to humans.

  • Where do we stand in the amount of sex our species has compared to others, you may be surprised to learn that humans actually do engage in more sex than most species, not compared to bonobos, but compared to most other animals, we engage in carnal activity more frequently.

  • This is because we really enjoy having sex.

  • It feels good and we live in a society where sex sells and therefore is encouraged.

  • It's unclear whether other species experience orgasms the same way humans do.

  • But for species like dolphins and bonobos that have sex just for fun, it would seem there is some pleasure attached to it.

  • A 2017 study found that humans are estimated to have sex around 54 times a year when sexually active.

  • This is just over once a week.

  • And although other species may have the same or more sex than us, we are unique and that humans don't mind spreading out our populations throughout the year.

  • We also don't normally have so much sex that it kills us, which allows us to have more sex over the course of our lives than some other species.
