If you're looking for more fun science, check out the Real Scientists Twitter account. #Hump Off was dreamed up by this week's curator, evolutionary biologist Tom Houslay.
Octopuses are notoriously violent partners, and the males usually keep their mates at as far a distance as possible.
But the Larger Pacific striped octopus mates beak to beak -- and the reproductive partners can hole up together for several days without anyone getting hurt. When females prefer mates with certain traits, those traits can quickly become exaggerated in the population.
Sexual preference can drive incredibly fast evolution in a species.
Cleopatra is credited with the invention of the vibrator. French bulldogs cannot reproduce naturally because they are too top heavy. In Aztec culture, avocados were considered sexually powerful and were restricted for virgins. The average erection contains enough blood to keep three gerbils alive.
A woman’s breasts increase in size by up to 25% when she is sexually aroused. If your parents had waited five seconds later, or began five seconds earlier you wouldn’t be here.

It’s illegal in Florida to have sex in any position other than Missionary. Make-up is meant to simulate what a woman’s face looks like mid-orgasm. At the same time, “blow” was slang for ejaculation.

She is said to have taken insects and placed them inside a hollow sphere. Every French bulldog puppy is born of artificial insemination. Amazon River Dolphins are the only species of animal recorded to have engaged in nasal sex.
The insects would become agitated and begin buzzing around, causing the sphere to vibrate.
So when orgasm occurs, roughly 1.5Gb of data is ‘ejaculated’ in about 3 seconds, a data transfer rate 6 orders of magnitude, or a few million times, faster than an average internet connection.
