Weird History Talks About Sex

While sex has obviously been going on in the natural world for far longer than we've been around, "we" meaning humanity itself, it's only been in the last hundred years or so that we've been studying it as a scientific subject. The title of this video at YouTube refers to "strange sex practices," but there is no kink discussed here. The images can be described as suggestive, but that's as far as it goes, considering the stock footage used was mainly designed for advertising. And our favorite narrator, Tom Blank, doesn't even say "penis," which leads to an amusing string of euphemisms. What it contains are things we've learned from scientific research about typical human sex practices, from kissing to having a cigarette afterward. Along with the scientific findings, there are the usual Weird History quips, which are funnier for the fine line they negotiate than for the jokes themselves.

Speaking of sexual vocalization: The female fox is called a vixen in homage to human females because when in sexual heat they make very loud sounds like a woman in the throes of sexual lust. I was a volunteer feeder/cage cleaner at an animal care center and one day while doing my rounds I kept hearing a woman moaning. I tracked the sound down to a female red fox situated in a dog run next to an arctic male fox's run. She kept coming to the fence and rubbing on the chain link while the poor male fox was going crazy trying to 'date' her. He was fixed the next week but he would have had beautiful kits with that lady fox.
