    So I read Bruce Lipton’s “Biology of Belief” book and learned about a little about Bonobos and immediately hit the internet to search for more about Bonobos and I wind up on your page! Not only do I LOVE that you’re trying to help save the Bonobos but I got to find out about squirting which happened for the first time to me several years ago and I had NO IDEA what the hell it was, except I was pretty sure it wasn’t pee and I really, really love it. I can’t thank you enough for your website, Suzy It’s just so awesome and I give it out to people all the time. I am so in love with Ethical Hedonism! And as if all that weren’t enough, when I ran across the Polyamory Article I just almost cried. I’ve been polyamorous for most of my life and I didn’t even know what it was called. The article really touched my heart because it described real life situations and people rather than just a dictionary entry listing details. We’d decided to keep our many year relationship a secret until just a couple of years ago (and still with some) because the area we live in is so very not open minded and people just freak out at the mere mention. That Polyamory Article on your page had been kind of like a canary for me. If and when a discussion comes up and I give it to someone, I know immediately by their reaction whether or not I can share that part of my life with them, not to mention that some people I’ve shared it with were soooo excited to explore the possibilities and grateful to have someone to share discussion about desires they’ve always secretly held. Thank you so much Suzy, You’re an angel and I have so much respect and love for you and what you’re doing. It’s my hope I can do my part to help advance freedom of loving expression as well because I do believe it to truly be the most beautiful, effective, deeply rooted, and certainly the funnest way to change the world. Long live Bonobos and all those who help to lift the limits and shackles on love.Peace,Bobbie


  2. Bonobos have NOTHING to do with AIDS

    I don’t usually comment on blogs, but I have to write in to say that waxwing04 is horribly WRONG is saying that bonobos have AIDS or spread HIV, or that their sexual habits have anything to do with their endangerment. First and foremost, NO BONOBO HAS EVER BEEN FOUND WITH AIDS OR HIV, let alone spreading it. Waxwing is probably thinking of green monkeys, an entirely different species from bonobo chimpanzees, and it’s not even been proven that the green monkeys spread HIV. Second, bonobo sex practices have little to nothing to do with their status as highly endangered species. They are endangered because of human activity: war, bushmeat hunting and the degradation of the rain forest. Thank you, Dr. Block, for your mostly well-informed writings on bonobos, and especially for your work in educating humans. And thank you for providing this forum on your blog for people to exchange ideas about bonobos and the Bonobo Way. But waxwing04’s comment is dangerously ill-informed and utterly WRONG, and I hope that anyone who reads it also reads my factual refutation. Simon

    Hi. I read a while ago that the Bonobo is rare because its sexual habits have given rise to an animal version of AIDS, which is also spreading through other mammal species who have more than one sexual partner. While it is a shame, their way of defusing a volatile situation is to share a sexual encounter is by far the best way. We humans can use various barriers to prevent the spread of diseases and unwanted babies, unlike the Bonobo, Lion and other species who practice (what we humans would call) orgies.

    Hey Rick, Are you stupid or what, go fight your wars, I’ll be at home with the girls, you can jerk off. When MOMMY nature gets tired of your shit she’ll take you down and no army will be strong enough to resist her. Put your hands up and come out of the dark cave you live in. One last thing, the Walruses are not doing so good, the ice caps are melting, our cities are flooding. Or haven’t you heard?Carlo Filangieri

    Rick, your attitude is what is going to get us all killed. Bonobos are endangered mostly due to the behavior of humans (wars and pollution and hunting), not because of anything to do with their lifestyle.

    How could the Bonobo Way be so great if they bonobos are almost extinct? Maybe the Walrus Way of violent male competition and enslaved females to the alpha male is best, since walruses seem to be doing all right for themselves.

    The Bonobo Way is the only way for our species to go, if we are to survive another few hundred millennia
