Anti-Caturday post

Seals. Having sex.

Dang. It’s neither cute nor graceful, is it?

    That was roughly as awkward and floppy as I expected.

    The moaning sounds familiar, though.

    Parthenogenesis obviously has its advantages.

    No film crews…

    Love doesn’t really spring to mind.

    Cat sex isn’t really much of an improvement, however, especially in the auditory realm.

    M can help you with that.


    I’m starting to feel like I dodged a bullet there…

    I’m clearly missing a video or picture or something, and I do mean missing: seals screwing sounds hilarious. I don’t have the content error message like @5, just what looks like a post consisting only of:

    I solved my problem: script-blocker blocking explore.org (video container/fetch script) and then ooyala.com (flash player/content script).

    Glen Davidson has it right: cats having sex are neither cute nor graceful. And for the female, it’s evidently painful as the barbs on the male’s penis stimulate her vaginal wall when he withdraws, triggering ovulation.

    Somewhere on the web there’s a photo of two lions, taken just as the male has withdrawn; the female (like all cats, it seems) is turning around and giving him a nasty swat. Unfortunately, a search of Google images for “lions mating” doesn’t turn up this particular photo, but it shows lots of open mouths: one gathers lions, like house cats, make a lot of noise when doin’ the dirty.

    Definitely a situation where sex is anti-romantic.

    I love the way the adult seal next to them seems to be shielding the pup as if to say “Don’t look, don’t look, you’re not old enough!”

    Watch a video of seals having sex.

    Cool. One less item on my bucket list.

    My only thought was: Why the heck are they not doing it in the water..?

    (Actually, from what I’ve previously seen of seal sexuality I can hazard a guess, but I don’t really want the answer to be true -yup, that’s me antropomorpising)

    Ron Jeremy jumps into my mind.

    Beach sand makes a great sexual lubricant…NOT!

    I’m not supposed to be turned on by this, am I? O.o

    I would ask who stole my home sex tapes but I had a trophy wife so it would look more like an elephant seal trying to hook up with a sea otter.

    Why is this video like American beer? It’s fucking close to water.

    Lets not compare this to cats. Cats’ sex is definitely painful, but it looks like the females like it (except for the withdrawal, when they try to kill the male) – after copulation female cats often roll on their backs on the grass (a clear sign that they’re having fun).
    Seals, on the other hand, are rapists. They even rape their young, something I’ve never seen a cat do.

    Checkmate, seal-lovers – this one goes to the cats!

    This would make a much better anti-Caturday post: octopodes rendered in cake:
