Ladybirds are remarkably promiscuous. As many as a thousand individual ladybirds have been observed aggregating, apparently for the purpose of having sex – and it seems just for the hell of it. During these aggregations the beetles copulate often, but no ovipositing (egg-laying) females or larval ladybird beetles can be observed. Incidentally, ladybirds have the highest prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases of virtually any insect. And London ladybirds are top of the STD league, with more than 90% being affected.Ladybird and STDs! Somehow I can't imagine these two together.

I always thought ladybirds are small, decent, innocent cuties.
Bdelloid rotifer! that amazing ! hmm i realised many spotted creatures r horny.
I love horny animals!
This goes to show you all if you have too many sex partners, you might have STDs just like the ladybirds.
i wish someone do a research on animal sex and std and how it might have led to possible extinction of species.
Shy: the innocent ones are the ones that have the most active sex!
