Dino Porn: How Horny Dinosaurs Really Had Sex

Pin it

Today is a good day. Two things I love — sex and dinosaurs — are making headlines.

I’m not sure how much you’ve imagined dinosaur sex, but it’s really quite the mental exercise. How did they do it? With those spikes and bony things? And they’re so BIG! However (hope you’re ready for some fun facts), paleontologists think dinosaurs had a single body opening for urination, defecation, and reproduction — something called a cloaca in modern day birds and reptiles — and that dinos would do it by pressing their cloacas together which is TOTALLY GETTING ME HOT RIGHT NOW JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.

Apparently a penis is not needed to perform this “cloacal kiss”, but male dinos might have some sort of penis-like organ, anyway. And it probably would have been about 12 feet in length for a T. Rex.

Paleontologists think the deed would go down when the male dino would mount the female dino from behind. Beverly Halstead, an Englishman/dino-mating extraordinaire said in 1988 that

“all dinosaurs used the same basic position to mate. Mounting from the rear, he put his forelimbs on her shoulders, lifting one hind limb across her back and twisting his tail under hers to align the cloaca.”

Poor dinos, chained to one position. But experts today agree, and have little to add to Hastead’s theory. Other than this other speculation, from Dr. Gregory M. Erickson, an evolutionary biologist at Florida State University: “It must have been a hell of a thing to see.”
