Bonobos and possibly dolphins also pursue sex recreationally, Bekoff said. Al that said, we can never completely know another being's emotional state, Bekoff points out, adding that it can even be hard to judge that of a human. And we can't ask a tomcat how his date went last night. Kent Berridge, a biopsychologist at the University of Michigan, compared the brain activity and facial expressions of animals to that of a more readable creature: human infants. When given something pleasurable to taste, both rats and humans make almost identical mouth shapes and sucking motions. Their brain reactions also mirror one another. If we believe the infant "enjoys" the sweet taste based on her pleasant expression, it follows that the rat likely enjoys it too. Primitive feelings Sweets and sex — as well as drugs, winning the lotto and every other rewarding experience —stimulate the same brain circuit, said Berridge, and this pleasure circuit is common to both human and non-human animals. His experiments suggest a further homology, one of emotional experience. "Our chief anatomical difference from [other animals] is up in the prefrontal cortex," explained Berridge, but the generation of pleasure is happening at "lower" brain structures. The human cortex may interpret pleasurable sensations and assign them special meaning (or not). In this way, a human’s experience of sex may be qualitatively different than an animal’s, but no less (or more) enjoyable. And of course, Nature offers her own proof that sex is pleasurable: plentiful offspring. "There are damn good evolutionary reasons for animals to enjoy sex and have orgasms," said Bekoff. "My null hypothesis is that they do," he said, adding a challenge: "Prove that they don't."
>>how can furries sweat?
There are plenty of animals that are completely covered with fur that sweat all over their bodies. Horses, for example. On a hot day they can become completely wet. It also is what makes them stink so much.
However, MOST mammals sweat only through the pawpads on their FEET. (Bears, Raccoons, etc). Which I guess might turn some of you on if you're into that. But they DO sweat.
>>do animals have orgasms?
Fuck yeah, watch this male polar bear fucking, he gives a bunch of quick thrusts and then coasts along for the ride, over and over and over.
Look at his FACE each time he does that, he's obviously in ecstacy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW2QOrfMAqQ&t
Polar bears are fucking handsome, I wish that was MY hungry ass he was pounding away at and filling up with his polar bear pudding!!
