Monkey sex in the news

The sex lives of monkeys is getting a lot of play in the media these past few days. Have yourself a little primate sex ed by reading the following:

Like humans, monkeys too will pay for sex
A study "has shown that male longtailed macaques exchange grooming for the right to mate with females whose fur they cleaned."

Study reveals why monkeys shout during sex
"New research indicates that females shout during sex to help males ejaculate."

And, my favorite:
Randy monkeys wash hands, feet in urine
"Capuchin monkeys wash their feet and hands in urine to get comfort or sex, research now suggests."

All the more reason not to keep monkeys as pets.
