Chimp Addicted To Porn At Spanish Zoo

Seville Zoo Chimp

A chimp named Gina became addicted to porn after a television set and a remote control were placed inside her enclosure at a zoo in Spain.

Primatologist Pablo Herreros recently told a Spanish newspaper that he made the discovery years ago while touring different zoos. According to the New York Daily News, the television was placed inside the enclosure to help stimulate the primates both physically and psychologically.

Herreros explained that primates are often given toys, objects, and various stimuli as a kind of “occupational therapy.” In order to keep a chimp named Gina content, zookeepers decided to install a television behind a glass barrier. The chimp was also given a remote control so she should control what she wanted to see.

According to news.co.au, Gina’s handlers were happy that she didn’t immediately try to smash the television. They were even more delighted when they discovered the chimp has learned to use the remote control within a relatively short amount of time.

However, the real shocker arrived when zookeepers discovered that the chimp had become addicted to watching porn. Instead of nature shows, cartoons, or cheesy action flicks, Gina had decided pornography was her entertainment of choice.

Herreros explained to the newspaper:

“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. 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.”

Seville Zoo officials have yet to comment on their chimp’s addiction to televised pornography. It’s also unclear if her handlers decided to let her continue watching what she wanted. If she can figure out how the use the remote, chances are she could bypass parental filters if given the opportunity.

    I'm no freaking scientist, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the chimp would watch the most basic of instincts, reproduction (sex) – how…and why, would anyone expect the chimp to relat to cartoons or action movies?

    I agree with Sunny Tellez..and if she doens;t have a mate that's most likely the other reason :) LOL.

    Viewer discretion I don't mean to be sick BUT this only would be a real "flip out of nature" if she figuired out how to masterbate while watching it.

    Thank you! That is exactly what I was thinking. Porn is probably the only thing she can relate to. Also, perhaps the term "addiction" is a bit strong.

    LMAO just goes to prove we did evolve from chimps but apparently some have come farther than others!

    This is clearly a fake story! Aren't porn channels on cable pay-to-order channels! I suppose the monkey pulled his credit card and ordered, right?
