What Do You Feel About Animals Reproductive habits being filmed?
We filmed them all the time and the whole world can see them reproducing and the flamboyant way they do it. When we are filmed doing the same it is atrocious. Isn't that ironic?
What an interesting question. Yes, animals are filmed reproducing which is called the biological process. They do not have intercourse unless it is reproductive. Filming human beings having sex is a whole different animal (no pun intended) it is called pornography even if it is reproductive.
As long as it is not too "personal" I think it is okay. I have watched quite a few and learned much, since I am very interested in studying animals and have many questions about them.
Hmm, too personal. Have we asked the animals if they mind it being shown to humans and all that? I have viewed educational video's of human intercourse and I do not think that is bad, but many do.
I cannot answer whether the animals mind showing, but they might. If I ever learn to speak with them I will ask. Some may not mind watching humans, but some humans do not want to show it. Question is not if it is bad but to some it means more.
I don't like it. Not because I'm a prude but it doesn't show the animals at their most attractive and we all know that animals mate to produce offspring so there is no need to show lions approaching orgasm. Showing an animal killing its prey is different though-each animal has a different style of stalking and killing and these shows often demonstrate the hierarchy of the animals when it comes to the kill, so the hunting aspects are very informative. Not so the mating-we all know how babies are produced and it's no different from animals than from humans. LOL!
Yes, I do find it ironic. The credence I would grant the perceived differences is that for many humans, intercourse is a very private and intimate affair. Of course, we truly do not know what other species are thinking during the mating process, and considering the intelligence of certain mammals, I would not be at all surprised if often it involves more than purely instinctive urges.
And for me, "atrocious" is seeing people commit violent crimes on each other. Human intercourse has bore the stigmas of "disgusting", "sinful" and "shameful" while savagery and murder are still filmed and these films are broadcast worldwide, and very often to audiences that are left drooling for more. Yet while animals and humans share the common habit of intercourse and only humans cry it is indecent to watch, we aren't like to see the day animals are searching the internet for videotaped scenes of brutality.
Excellent question, LG! Why is lovemaking more sinful than random violence???
I like several of the answers and agree with most of them. I will add that it can be embarrassing if you are watching with children. Human reproduction, at least in this country, has always carried a certain stigma to it due to our Puritan and Quaker ancestry. The Europeans and Asians view it more liberally, and that is how it should be. Childbirth was always a "woman's thing" and we have just within the last couple of decades come around to including the father in the delivery room.
Back in the 1960s, I attended an emergency preparedness training class. Included in the class was how to deliver a baby. One couple brought their son, who was about nine years old to the class. Watching his reaction to the birth was very interesting. He was fascinated, but the process was very embarrassing to him. He would watch awhile and then look around at the other adults and grin. I hope that was a sign of the times. I'm sure children today view the mating habits of animals and even human childbirth today in a much more natural way. The fact that I find it embarrassing to watch with children present is a sign of the times when I grew up.

Just a curiosity. Do animal lovers love human beings?

Do you consider the 'life' of an animal to be equivalent to that of a human's? If not then why not..is it because they can't speak, because they still feel pain & suffering just as we do?
