Spiky stegosaurus 'mated in missionary position to avoid male being castrated'How did dinosaurs with spiky backs make love? Very carefully, one might imagine.
But scientists have gone one step further than guessing -- with a fascinating computer-tested theory.
It contradicts the belief that all dinosaurs mated with the male mounting the female from behind.
Researchers said that in some species the female's spiky tail and back could have castrated the male.
Instead, they may have used something closer to the missionary position, with the male on top.
Interesting stuff, but I'm a lit
tle disappointed in the Daily Mail
on this occasion: Don't they usually put one word in the title of each of their articles entirely in capital letters? In this case I might have suggested:
"Spiky stegosaurus 'MATED in missionary position to avoid male being castrated'"
"Spiky stegosaurus 'mated in MISSIONARY position to avoid male being castrated'"
or, perhaps most likely,
"Spiky stegosaurus 'mated in missionary position to avoid male being CASTRATED'"
And why the heck does the artist's rendering captioned Dinosaurs may have had sex in the missionary position to prevent them from being castrated, according to a new study.
show some tyrannosaurs getting it on dino-style rather than some stegosaurs getting it on in the missionary position? Criminy, they should have just gone to deviantART; I'm sure that they could have found something.
Anyhow, it's an interesting theory well-suited to perverts like us. Enjoy!Spel
