Masturbating monkeys use stones as sex toys but never climax in sanctuary

Randy monkeys have been spotted using stones as sex toys at a ‘sacred sanctuary’, scientists say.

Both male and female long-tailed macaque monkeys at the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud, central Bali, have found a new use for rocks.

A study led by Camilla Cenni of the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, reports female monkeys are fussier when it comes to picking out the perfect stone to pleasure themselves with.

The article titled “Do monkeys use sex toys? Evidence of stone tool-assisted masturbation in free-ranging long-tailed macaques”, has been published in the latest issue of Ethology: International Journal of Behavioural Biology.

The Abstract reads: “Our data partly supported the “Sex Toy” hypothesis indicating that stone-directed tapping and rubbing onto the genital and inguinal area are sexually motivated behaviours.”
