There is currently a couple of threads discussing whether homosexuality is innate in animals. Well maybe prostitution is also an innate behavior in animals? I found this article on line and it seems to point to this being the case.

"In 1996, Cambridge (England) University researcher Fiona Hunter, who studied penguins' mating habits for five years, reported that some females apparently allow male strangers to mate with them in exchange for a few nest-building stones, thus providing what Hunter believes is the first observed animal prostitution. According to Dr. Hunter, all activity was done behind the backs of the females' regular mates, and in a few instances, after the sex act, johns gave the females additional stones as sort of a tip.

"Penguin slu%&!"

I really do not appreciate the title of this thread...

Think you could think of a little classier title?

Awsome...I've been wondering what to spend my rocks on.

It would appear that there is a form of prostitution that also exists among the Bonobo chimpanzees.

Sexual intercourse plays a major role in Bonobo society, being used as a greeting, a means of conflict resolution and post-conflict reconciliation,and a favor traded by the females in exchange for food Bonobos are the only non-human apes to have been observed engaging in tongue kissing..."
