True Sex & Wild Love

Are Bonobos the original Hookup culture with Amy Perish

April 1, 2021

You may know that bonobos are closely related to chimps—and humans. You may know that they are considered “the sexy ape’ because they use sex to dispel tension and create social bonds. But did you know that our closest non-human primate relatives are a female dominant species? And that they especially love girl-on-girl action? We know all this and more thanks to Dr. Amy Parish, a “Darwinian feminist’ and change-maker in the field of biological anthropology.
