In news that has me more excited to finish construction of my time machine than ever before, a new study suggests that t-rexes may have been sensitive lovers, rubbing their snouts (which scientists believe to be as sensitive as human fingertips) on each other as an act of foreplay. *shivers* Did anybody else just get goosebumps? No? What about a boner? Seriously - nobody? What the hell is wrong with you people?
Writing in the journal Scientific Reports, the US authors describe how the sensitive skin may have proved crucial to the dinosaur's mating success. "In courtship, tyrannosaurids might have rubbed their sensitive faces together as a vital part of pre-copulatory play," they explain.
Okay, so maybe t-rexes have a bit of a sensitive 'pre-copulatory play.' But what about the actual sex? Do you think they nibble each other's necks? Blow in their ears? Role play? I'm only asking because I just want my first time to be perfect.
Thanks to DocTed, who I'm really hoping is a real doctor and can help identify this rash.
