Non-reproductive sexual behavior consists of sexual activities animals participate in that do not lead to the reproduction of the species. Although procreation continues to be the primary explanation for sexual behavior in animalsrecent observations on animal behavior have given alternative reasons for the engagement in sexual activities by animals. Observed non-procreative sexual activities include non-copulatory mounting without penetration, or by the femaleoral sex, genital stimulation, anal stimulation, interspecies mating, and acts of affection.
The study of animal sexuality and primate sexuality especially is a rapidly developing field. It used to be believed that only humans and a handful of species performed sexual acts other than for procreation, and that animals' sexuality was instinctive and a simple response to the "right" stimulation sight, scent. Current understanding is that many species that were formerly believed monogamous have now been proven to be promiscuous or opportunistic in nature; a wide range of species appear both to masturbate and to use objects as tools to help them do so; in many species animals try to give and get sexual stimulation with others where procreation is not the aim; and homosexual behaviour has now been observed among 1, species and in of those it is well documented.
We get the urge because our ancestors did too, even back to the earliest mammals and reptiles. The diversity of animals that have been caught taking a bit of alone time goes far, far beyond dogs humping legs. It should be no surprise to anyone that our primate cousins are champion masturbators.
There's a lot of Perhaps we were just charmingly naive, but HuffPost Weird News was unaware of just how many turtle masturbating videos there are out there. But this particular example is one of the more intense and disturbing examples of this intriguing phenomenon.
The zoological family Hominidae was once occupied by human beings alone, but the modern classification places all five great apes including usin this same family. Then there are two sub-families, with the most distantly related orangutan alone in the sub-family Ponginae, and the more closely related chimpanzee, bonobo, gorilla and human being in the sub-family Homininae. All five species have evolved separately for millions of years.
Opposite-sex pairs of orangutans were tested for sexual behavior during the intermenstrual period of the female. The male orangutan was the primary initiator of sexual interactions and initiated copulation forcefully on a daily basis, irrespective of female resistance. However, although single copulations occurred daily, copulations beyond the first occurred most frequently during midcycle.
We, humans, tend to put us above everything and to believe that animals have sex just for reproduction. This is not like that, and starting with a point in the evolution, when a certain level of intelligence was achieved by the mammals, the animals were also able to predict events, including some "naughty activities" that deliver them pleasure. Well, I'm gonna retell you an event I witnessed years ago.

Apparently, having exhausted the supply of beauties, geeks, biggest losers, average Joes, bachelors, bachelorettes, drunken college students, and kids, television programmers have now turned to orangutans. The orangutans were deposited on the protected habitat as part of a conservation project, but the potential of this reality-show setup is not lost on the producers. It follows a family of meerkats, dubbed the Whiskers, in the Kalahari Desert as they go about their daily lives of eating millipedes and procreating.
Masturbation, or autoerotic manipulation of the genitalia, is a ubiquitous practice across human cultures, though most empirical research on the subject is heavily biased toward Western sexual behavior. Though masturbation occurs in myriad animals, human masturbation is typically coupled with imagined or observed sexual behavior, which may introduce a unique quality to the human manifestation of this behavior, particularly given the exceptionality of human imagination. Human masturbation is also likely more ubiquitous compared to other species, and may display distinct patterns, though social taboo limits access to extensive data on the subject. Research on masturbatory practice by non-human animals almost exclusively focuses on male masturbation.
