Snow Monkeys Are Getting Their Groove On With … Deer?

And if you are assuming the males are responsible for this weirdness you're dead wrong.

And if you are assuming the males are responsible for this weirdness you’re dead wrong.

Do the rainbow-flag folks even have a name for weirdness like this? Or are these monkeys ‘cutting edge’ even for that crowd?

It’s common knowledge that Japan has a culture that’s entirely its own.

Buried in that ‘uniqueness’ is a stat that one in 4 men in their 50’s are still single, and culture as a whole has more or less given up on sex.

There’s a fixation on cartoons, robots, and one dude even ‘married’ his cartoon pillow.

Maybe there’s something in the water because there’s a bizarre parallel in the animal world… snow monkeys are getting busy with deer! (The females!)

During the study, the adolescent females were not observed mounting adult male monkeys.

The team recorded 12 successful sexual interactions between monkeys, involving six adolescent females, between November 2012 and January 2013.

And they recorded a total of 13 successful interactions of what appeared to be of a sexual nature between November 2014 and January 2015.

These involved five female snow monkeys.

The team believe the behaviour could be the start of a new trend, saying female snow monkeys could spot others on the backs of deer and try to replace them.

The monkey-deer interactions may be the beginning of a future relationship, they added.

It remains unclear why the snow monkeys engage in sexual interactions with deer, but scientists believe they could be practicing for sex with other monkeys or they could have been rejected by males, leaving them with no sexual partner.

Oh, and about that ‘still single’ stat? Here’s a little more about that.

That’s according to a government survey published last week, claiming that 42% of men and 44.2% of women — almost half of Japan’s millennial singles aged between 18 to 34 — are virgins.
…Japan’s lack of interest in sex is blamed on everything from a stagnant economy to Japanese manga fans favoring fantasy over reality.

Maybe these men should step away from the cartoons a little more often, and discover the real world that awaits them. They just might like it!

Better still, they could walk away from the city entirely, and take up hunting. It might help them develop the self-confidence they’d need to do better with the ladies.

Get Doug Giles’ book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation today!

If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
