Apeldoorn Apenheul zoo Bonobo.jpg

Bonobos are an endangered species of great apes. They are usually caricatured as having lots of sex, and frequently.

Relatively high sexual inequalityEdit

They have higher male reproductive skew than chimpanzees, which is theorized to be due to them being a socially cohesive species. Social cohesion may limit the ability of "sneaker males" to use aquire females without group approval.[1]

Due to their close relation to humans, bonobos could be an interesting case study into whether sexlessness among humans constitutes a Maslow need or ADL that is missing.
