Turns out humans aren’t the only ones who get down and dirty for sexual pleasure.
A pair of frisky gorillas at the Bronx Zoo proved that when one was filmed performing oral sex on its partner in front of aghast zoo-goers. A clip of the NSFW scene is currently blowing up on social media — but animal experts report that it’s all completely normal.
“I was shocked and had no idea that was a ‘natural’ act,” the videographer, who has opted to remain anonymous, told The Post of the steamy spectacle, which he captured while visiting the iconic NYC zoo with his family.
“I was in the gorilla exhibit with my 4-year-old daughter and niece,” he said. “My wife had to stay out of the exhibit with my sleeping son, so I wanted to capture a lot of video. Then this magic happened.”
The resulting footage shows the giving simian servicing his partner while they’re splayed out on the ground as onlookers guffaw and turn their children away.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time gorillas have been observed going sextracurricular at the boogie-down Bronx venue. Seven years ago, a Redditor posted a raunchy pic that depicted two of the facility’s animals embraced in what is known colloquially as the “69 position” in front of kids.
‘[Primates can be caught] performing every position and variation one can imagine.’

Great ape fellatio may seem unorthodox, but it’s really not. Oral sex is actually fairly common throughout the animal kingdom with sightings of species ranging from cheetahs to bears and bats engaging in the salacious act, the BBC has reported.
In fact, many species engage in sex for pleasure. Bonobos — also known as hippie apes — have infamously kinky sex lives.
