What is Copulation?


Have you ever wondered whether or not you’ve engaged in copulation? If so, you’re not alone. Almost all animals are engaged in this activity, and some species have been protected from it for centuries. In fact, zoologists are now making sure that endangered species continue to have copulation. Cats, for example, are often the result of sexual union, and female dogs may have puppies in the near future if they haven’t been fixed.

Throughout history, people have considered copulation to be a form of sexual intercourse, but what is it? Copulation is when a male reproductive organ (known as a testes) enters a female’s reproductive tract, fertilizes her egg, and gives birth to a new organism. Some animals, such as birds, even lay their eggs externally. But there’s no evidence to suggest that these species are consciously choosing to engage in these activities.

Nevertheless, the process of pleasant copulation is characterized by upticks in pace, which mark a specific stage in the woman’s development towards climax. Once he detects these signals, he will whip himself onward to frenzied strokes. Despite the fact that these movements are not consciously planned, they are nonetheless highly functional for males. The wiliest females enjoyed an hour of mindless copulation in the process, which was promptly forgotten.

The female Barbary macaque, for example, mates with each male in her troop, and makes no effort to hide her activity from the other males. Similarly, most human mate-making takes place at an unsuitable time for conception. As a result, approximately 29 percent of observed copulations turn out to be extra-pair copulations. And, as a result, most of the resulting nestlings are illegitimate.
