Here's another interesting fact about baboons. Female baboons ( I call them baboobs!) will moan, groan and cry longer and livelier when having sex with a high ranking male. From New Scientist:
Larger and more dominant males = more stimulation. Hehe. That makes sense.
One possible explanation for the baboon behaviour is that the female is trying to avoid being harassed by other potential suitors while she is mating with a choice male, says lead researcher Stuart Semple of the Institute of Zoology in London.
However, the reason for the spirited shouting may be purely physical. The females could simply be more stimulated by larger, dominant males, says Semple.
For real life baboon sex and masturbation, head down to the Singapore Zoo's Hamadryas Baboons exhibit. I heard it's pretty happening there.
