Brown Bear’s Gay Blowjobs Only Last About Four Minutes, Say Researchers

The report, published this month in the journal Zoo Biology, was conducted by a group of researchers led by Agnieszka Sergiel of the Polish Academy of Sciences Department of Wildlife Conservation. During 116 hours of observation, Sergiel writes that the two male brown bears that were observed pleasured each other orally on 28 different occasions.

io9 notes that this isn’t the first time bears have been recorded performing fellatio, but other instances could be considered a “marker of stress rather than pleasure.” This time, however, is “the first observations of long-term, recurrent fellatio in captive brown bears kept in proper conditions.”

Each performance lasted roughly four minutes. And in case you’re wondering, there is a top (provider) and a bottom (receiver):

All cases appeared to be initiated by the provider, who approached the receiver while he was resting on his side or with part of his abdomen exposed. If the receiver’s genitals were not exposed, the provider would push his head into the pelvic region or use his paws to separate the hind legs. After accessing and initial licking of the penis, the provider would find a more comfortable posture, such as sitting or lying…once actual sucking started, neither bear changed position.

The journal suggests the brown bears developed a habit of performing fellatio because they were weaned too early from their mothers, wondering if it’s “evidence of long-term effects of suckling deprivation.”

Wrong. This is obviously happening because that bear on the bottom is sexy as hell. He’s basically asking for it.
