    Porn turns fish on say scientists


    FISH can be turned on by an aquatic equivalent of pornography, according to research revealed today.

    Scientists at a Swiss university have discovered that male sticklebacks can be stimulated by a "soft porn" film showing flirting fish.

    The researchers at the University of Fribourg believe the fish porn simulates conditions in the wild, and that the image sparks off a competitive instinct in sticklebacks.

    Mating is a cut-throat business among sticklebacks. The male builds a nest before beginning an elaborate courtship with his chosen female.

    When sufficiently charmed, the female lays her eggs in his nest. But, often, other frisky males sneak into the nest and try to fertilise the eggs as well.

    The researchers put together two full-colour computer animations showing virtual sticklebacks. According to a report in the New Scientist, the first was the "sexy" film of a male courting a female, while the other showed a male caring for his brood.

    Both films were shown to 17 male sticklebacks After each stickleback had watched one film for a couple of minutes, a female was put in the tank to spawn.

    It was reported that the best results were produced after the fish porn.

    I came home yesterday, after letting my fish surf the internet, and they we're on some fishy porn site. Thanks Matt, they had no clue till you told em there was such a thing. Please don't turn them onto the hard core stuff, that softporn fish stuff is bad enough.
