Okay. We officially declare Sex at the Zoo a Valentines Day tradition. Call us old fashioned, but like the old song says, “birds do it, bees do it—even educated fleas do it.” And yeah, when they sing it, they’re talking about falling in love. But there are some other things implicated too, wouldn’t you say? As the folks at the zoo put it: “The conversation is guaranteed to be wild at the annual event that divulges the secrets, scandals and shockingly true facts about animal courtship.” Whether or not your own love life involves that much drama, we’re sure you’ll get a kick (or your kicks) out of all the drama (and passion!) of Sex at the Zoo.
This year’s adults-only evening will include a revealing look at elephant mating—including the rarely discussed world of wildlife matchmaking at Zoo and the behind-the-scenes work that leads to love. Pachyderm Match.com, much? Held on the Zoo’s historic Mansion House porch, the event is both fascinating and fun, and (do we really need to say it?) 100% unique. With admission you and your sweetie get access to an open bar of beer, wine and soft drinks, sumptuous hors d’oeurves, decadent desserts and live music by Jazz Caravan. And of course there will be live appearances and photo ops with some of the zoo’s most popular animals. Is it getting hot in here, or did we just step into the Sahara exhibit?
Sex at the Zoo takes place on Valentines day, and reservations should be made ahead of time. Visit www.marylandzoo.org to book tickets.
