Harassing fertile female chacma baboons appears to give males a better chance of mating with them. Male baboons that harass and assault females are more likely to mate with them, according to a new study, adding evidence that sexual intimidation may be a common mating strategy among promiscuous mammals. To conduct the research, Elise Huchard, a zoologist at the National Center for Scientific Research in Montpellier, France, and colleagues examined a group of chacma baboons Papio ursinus living in Tsaobis Nature Park in Namibia over a 9-year period. These brownish, dog-sized primates live in troops of dozens of males and females. Females will mate with multiple males throughout the year. The male chacma are about twice the size of females and aggressively fight one another and engage in howling competitions to establish dominance.

Are some primates wired for sexual harassment?

Bonobo - Wikipedia

Bonobos have earned a reputation as a "sexy" ape. Sexual activity — in many creative forms — plays a large role in bonobo society. Sexual contacts occur often, in virtually all partner combinations and in a slew of different positions. Bonobo society is also known to be more egalitarian and peaceful, especially compared with their close relatives, chimpanzees. However, conflicts still arise in bonobo groups. I recently asked Zanna about watching bonobos and interpreting the role of sex in making up. Q: How did you get interested in the role of sexual contacts in bonobos to begin with?

Non-reproductive sexual behavior in animals

We evolved from primates. It's easy enough to track and makes sense considering the way most people live d. Echoes from the past in society of the present.
The bonobo is distinguished by relatively long legs, pink lips, dark face, tail-tuft through adulthood, and parted long hair on its head. The species is omnivorous and inhabits primary and secondary forests , including seasonally inundated swamp forests. Because of political instability in the region and the timidity of bonobos, there has been relatively little field work done observing the species in its natural habitat. Along with the common chimpanzee, the bonobo is the closest extant relative to humans. Bonobos live south of the river, and thereby were separated from the ancestors of the common chimpanzee, which live north of the river.
