Scientists Find Fossils in Sexual Union

from The Associated Press

LUCKNOW, India - This was no one-night stand. Scientists in India say they have discovered two fossils fused together in sexual union for 65 million years, the first time that sexual copulation had been discovered in a fossil state.

But voyeurs will need a microscope to view the eternal lovers.

The fossils are tiny swarm cells, a stage in the development of the fungus myxomycetes, also known as slime molds.

The cells reproduce by "fusing." Once the cells fuse, long, threadlike appendages known as flagella, are lost. Finding the fossils in a fused position and with their flagella shed is evidence that the two cells were having sex.
