article imageEnough already! Insects found in Brazil have sex up to 70 hours

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 22, 2014 in Science
Cave insects of the Neotrogla genus recently discovered in Brazil have two things to make them rather unique. First, it's the female who is equipped with a penis, while the male gets the vagina. And secondly they have sex for 40 to 70 hours — straight
It's not the male who gets preggers, mind you, that is still the bailiwick of the female. When she inserts her erect penis into the male's vagina (sounds odd, no?) she does so to "suck out sperm and nutritious seminal fluids." Does that sound like something you'd like to do for 2 1/2 days without a break?
A study of these sexually hardy creatures in Current Biology notes that coitus interruptus is, in essence, not possible. "When the researchers attempted to pull a male and female apart," the study noted. "The male's abdomen was ripped from the thorax without breaking the genital coupling."
Which raises the question — are you that keen on doing it?
