It turns out that the oldest profession is older than previously thought. Scientists from the German Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology have observed the sexual behavior of chimpanzees living in Ivory Coast for several years and have come to several interesting conclusions:
1. Male chimpanzees who willingly shared meat obtained from hunting with females were much more likely to have sex with them than their more greedy fellow tribesmen. Thus, there is a payment in kind for sexual services.
2. Also, the concept of prepayment is not alien to chimpanzees, that is, a male could treat his lady with meat, and use "access to the body" only after a couple of days.
3. Chimpanzees can share prey and have sexual intercourse with females not only during periods when conception is possible. This means that monkeys are highly developed enough to have sex for pleasure, and not solely for satisfying basic instincts.
4. A male who regularly shares meat with the same female may have constant sexual relations with her - the so-called "regular customers".
Females very rarely hunt, so this symbiosis of males and females is extremely mutually beneficial, because everyone gets what he needs.
Meat is very important in the chimpanzee's diet as it is rich in proteins. Monkey zoos have to buy meat without fail.
