Ant Pornography

Via FailBlog:

The internet may be laughing now, but surely Ant Pornography is a Rule 34.

Brachymyrmex patagonicus, totally doing it
Acropyga epedana root ants have a mealybug fetish
Acromyrmex versicolor prefer a pile-on

I’d also like to note- per the FailBlog screen capture- that the matriarchal nature of ant societies renders the phrase “Feminist Ant Pornography” rather apt.

  1. the matriarchal nature of ant societies renders the phrase “Feminist Ant Pornography” rather apt.

    Well, to be picky about it if they’re starting out matriarchal they wouldn’t have feminists. :V

    (What would gender be like in sapient ants anyway… would it be based on worker/queen/male, or on worker/soldier/breeder, or on work being done in or out of the nest, and in the latter case would they think of it as more of a transient thing rather than our assumption that it’s a part of someone’s inherent nature…)

  2. Matriarchal? All I see is exploitative males using their sperm to force females into underground egg-machine drudgery and slavery in the quest to produce more dwarf males.

  3. The flailing and writhing of segmented appendages in ecstasy, the rugose sculpturing and smooth curvature of bare, gleaming cuticle, the climactic merging of haploid and diploid flesh… ah, the joys of superorganism sex.
