Non-reproductive sexual behavior in animals – Wikipedia

Non-reproductive sexual behavior consists of sexual activities animals participate in that do not lead to the reproduction of the species. Although procreation continues to be the primary explanation for sexual behavior in animals, recent observations on animal behavior have given alternative reasons for the engagement in sexual activities by animals.[1] Animals have been observed to engage in sex for social interaction, demonstration of dominance, aggression relief, exchange for significant materials, and sexual stimulation. Observed non-procreative sexual activities include non-copulatory mounting (without penetration, or by the female), oral sex, genital stimulation, anal stimulation, interspecies mating, and acts of affection.[2] There have also been observations of animals engaging in homosexual behaviors,[3][4] as well as sex with dead animals[5] and sex involving juveniles.[6] Lions are known to engage in sex to create bonds and interact with each other
