Scientist makes a super-large sex doll for turtles to test their mating habits

Scientist makes super-large sex doll for TURTLES to test their mating habits – confirming that men are five times more likely to copulate with larger women

  • A Canadian biologist studied the mating habits of the tortoise from the northern map
  • The species is known for an extreme size difference between men and women
  • The researchers used a 3D printer to make sex dolls to test men’s preferences
  • Male turtles preferred the larger sex dolls by a factor of five to one

A biologist studying turtle preferences used a 3D printer to create a set of female sex dolls to seduce members of the opposite.

The experiment focused on turtles on the northern map, which have been listed by the Canadian government as a risk species.

The species is known for a large difference in size between men and women.

Canadian biologist Grégory Bulté used a 3D printer to make a sex doll for turtles (pictured above) to test whether men preferred larger or smaller partners

A typical female can weigh up to 6.5 pounds, while males are considerably smaller, usually no more than 0.7 pounds.

Grégory Bulté, professor of biology at Carleton University in Ottawa, wondered how these large differences in size affected turtle mating practices.

“If a typical male encounters many females of different sizes, which happens because of the unusual wintering habits of this species, and is unable to mate with all pairs, he would prefer the larger pairs,” Bulté wrote in an article summarizing it experiment in Discover.

Bulté and his team used a 3D printer to make two artificial female ‘sex dolls’ to test the reaction of men who were in the mood to mate.

One doll was slightly smaller than average, and the other was near the largest size ever registered for a female turtle.

Bulté placed a larger and smaller version of the sex doll on a support connected to an underwater camera and recorded the activity around them for nine days, and discovered that the larger sex dolls underwent five times more mating attempts

The team waited until fall, when turtles tend to gather in large groups at the bottom of lakes or rivers where they usually stay inert during the winter months.

Turtles usually mate once at the start of this “wintering” period and again at the end of the winter, just before returning on their own.

The team placed the two sex tortoises close to one of these regions and attached them to a common bracket with an underwater camera to track all the activity they pulled.

For nine days they placed the dolls in the water in the morning and then picked them up again in the evening and captured the images of the day.

At the end of the nine days the results were clear, male turtles preferred the larger female sex doll, which they ‘visited’ almost twice as often as the smaller doll.

The larger sex doll was also subjected to five times as many mating attempts as the smaller doll.

Interestingly, the cameras have also recorded a number of unexpected activities that may indicate future research.

“While we were watching videos of our experiments, we witnessed a number of phenomena that we didn’t know were possible, including a female map turtle that seemed to beep at a female decoy and a wage that attacked a male decoy”, he wrote.

“These may be anecdotes for now, but maybe there is more going on. The ubiquity and affordability of action cameras will certainly provide many insightful observations about aquatic animals, including turtles. “

“Some may influence how we think about animal behavior, others may be intriguing facts about a world that is largely unexplored.”
