When it comes time for Pandas to mate, scientists turn on the porn. Panda porn, to be exact. And while this sounds strange, it makes sense considering the difficulties of Wild Sex in captivity.

Females in zoos worldwide are either mated with a male from another zoo or artificially inseminated. However, female pandas, like female humans, are more likely to become pregnant with a preferred partner. Some breeding programs have therefore gone to additional extents to encourage the process along. When several males are presented to a female, she can choose which male she likes best. Pandas raised in captivity don’t actually know what copulation with a partner looks like, so scientists have found that watching the process can help once a female finds the right suitor. So some copulation time, the lovebirds are entertained and educated by videos depicting other panda couples engaged in the action. Although it sounds like an exercise in ridiculousness, the fact of the matter is, panda porn can actually work with the right partner, or at least it doesn’t seem to hurt.
