Scientists from Mount Holyoke College in the USA examined female bottle-nosed dolphins and made an unexpected discovery. They were found to have a clitoris that performs the same functions as women. Simply put, this organ is given to them by nature to get pleasure during sex.

The discovery was made by a team of biologists led by Associate Professor of biological Sciences Patricia Brennan. Scientists have studied the genitals of 11 dolphins who died of natural causes. The dolphins' clitoris was carefully examined both externally and at the level of vessels and nerve endings.

During the work, biologists learned that this dolphin organ consists of erectile tissue. This allows it to fill with blood and increase in size. There is a strip of dense connective tissue around the clitoris. This confirms that it is not a rudimentary organ, but an important part of the animal's body.

The dolphin's clitoris penetrates many nerve endings, and the skin on it is thinner than in other places. From all this, Associate Professor Brennan concluded that the organ is most likely involved in the animal receiving pleasure during sexual intercourse. The fact that marine animals of this species have sex not only for the sake of procreation, scientists have established for a long time.

Another unexpected discovery was the location of the clitoris in female dolphins. The head of the clitoris is located right near the entrance to the vagina, when, as in women, it is located above the vagina and urethra. Therefore, it can be said that the genitals of these animals are more adapted for pleasure than human ones.

People have noticed that dolphins mate not only during the mating season, but at any time. They do it for their own pleasure and to establish social connections. Biologists have also noticed that females can rub each other's genitals with their muzzles and flippers.

It may seem that this discovery is nothing more than an interesting fact. But Patricia Brennan is sure that the result of her team's work is very important. It can help to trace the evolution of the development of mammalian genitalia. Perhaps, thanks to the research, humanity will learn something new about sex and how it works in nature.

The group of scientists has extensive plans for the future. They will continue to study the genitals of dolphins, but they are also interested in the genitals of snakes, alpacas and alligators.
