Some Insects Have Gay Sex By Accident

By Brandon Voss

A new review of homosexual insect encounters suggests that the acts may not be any fun for those involved.

According to LiveScience, Tel Aviv University and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology biologists examined about 100 studies on male-male interactions and compiled the first comprehensive review of invertebrate homosexuality, recently published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology.

Apparently, most of these gay encounters occurred as accidents when the bugs got busy too hastily. How could they be so careless or dumb? Well, sometimes males smell like the females they just screwed, and sometimes — not to sound racist — they all sorta look alike. Even worse, gay insect rape can damage male sexual organs.

"They have evolved to mate quick and dirty," said study co-author Inon Scharf. "They grab every opportunity to mate that they have because, if they become slow, they may give up an opportunity to mate."

Hey, we're sure similar "accidents" happen to humans all the time in dark alleys and steam rooms. But do insects feel guilty and confused the morning after?
