If it ain’t x-rated, Gina the chimp doesn’t want it.  In the Seville Zoo in Spain, keepers put a television and remote in the chimpanzees enclosure to see how she would react.

According to an account written by primatologist Pablo Herreros for the Spanish newspaper El Mundo:

“The surprise was when they found that within a few days, Gina was not only using the remote control perfectly well, but that she also used to choose the porn channel for entertainment, as many of us would have done, ” Herreros wrote. “Although a small study estimated that porn films are only watched for about 12 minutes on average, the truth is that human and non-human primates possess an intense sexual life.”
