Live! With Kelly
Maiko and Lana are having sex. Maiko is on top, and Lana's arms and legs are wrapped tightly around his waist. Lina, a friend of Lana's, approaches from the right and taps Maiko on the back, nudging him to finish. As he moves away, Lina enfolds Lana in her arms, and they roll over so that Lana is now on top. The two females rub their genitals together, grinning and screaming in pleasure. This is no orgy staged for an X-rated movie. It doesn't even involve people—or rather, it involves them only as observers. Primatologists are beginning to study the bonobos' unrestrained sexual behavior for tantalizing clues to the origins of our own sexuality. In reconstructing how early man and woman behaved, researchers have generally looked not to bonobos but to common chimpanzees.
