Accounts of unusual sexual activities among penguins, observed a century ago by a member of Captain Scott's polar team, are finally being made public.

Details, including "sexual coercion", recorded by George Murray Levick were considered so shocking that they were removed from official accounts.

...

He was shocked by what he described as the "depraved" sexual acts of "hooligan" males who were mating with dead females. So distressed was he that he recorded the "perverted" activities in Greek in his notebook.

...

"It's just full of accounts of sexual coercion, sexual and physical abuse of chicks, non-procreative sex, and finishes with an account of what he considers homosexual behaviour, and it was fascinating."

I doubt a sequel to "And Tango Makes Three" is planned.

"Kowalski, options?"
"Well, Skipper, she's still warm, so..."
"Say no more. Rico! Condom!"
"Blechhhg!"

Sexual deviancy in penguins? Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't it a pair of "gay" penguins that were a media sensation a few years ago? See a pattern here?

It seems more like the way ducks behave than the way penguins behave.
