Birds do it, bees do it. But the bees and their insect brethren definitely do it in a more interesting way. Don’t believe me? Check out Isabella Rosselini’s description of bee sex and the other videos in her educational “Green Porno” series. It’s fascinating stuff. For some light summer reading, I also recommend Olivia Judson’s “Dr. Tatiana’s Sex Advice To All Creation”, a book of “Dear Abby”-style questions and answers about sex problems from the weirder corners of the animal kingdom. The folks at McSweeny’s have taken this one step further from Dear Abby to the raunchier style of Savage Love with Dan Savage’s Wild Kingdom. One question begins: “I’m a 2-hour-old asexual amoeba, and I have kind of a weird problem… like most single-cell folks, I went through a phase in my teens where I was binary-fissionizing myself so often I thought my psuedopods would fall off.” Follow the link below for the answer.
