Octopussy | The Wild and Crazy Sex Lives of the Eight Leggeds

Want to know who doesn’t have a boring sex life? Wild octopuses. Emphasis on the wild. Unlike their tame domestic counterparts, these frisky eight-limbed sea creatures were recently observed off the coasts of Indonesia by a team of perverts, I mean scientists, from the University of California, Berkeley and their findings were published in the journal Marine Biology.

A recent National Geographic article reveals that wild octopuses “engage in ‘jealous murders,’ gender bending, and once-in-a-lifetime sex.” Here are some more juicy details: upon observing the baseball-sized Abdopus aculeatus octopus species, the team witnessed male octopuses jealously guarding their digs. If any competition approached, the males would “occasionally go so far as to use their 8- to 10-inch (20- to 25-centimeter) tentacles to strangle romantic rivals to death.” Says Berkeley biologist Roy Caldwell, who co-authored the new study: “This is not a unique species of octopus, which suggests others behave this way.”

Researchers also observed smaller males hiding their brown stripes, perhaps to give females a false sense of security, before pouncing on them. (Sounds like another species I know.)

And, that’s where the article ends. I know, I know…what about the gender bending of the (out of character) once-in-a-lifetime-sex? You get all worked up in anticipation and then there’s no money shot.

I guess interested parties will have to read the full report in Marine Biology. I wonder if it will be in the sealed section…
