The Donkey Got Prettier at Closing Time

Published November 11, 2011

A Zimbabwe man is in legal trouble for having sex with a donkey tied to a tree. But he told the court there’s actually a “simple explanation” for what he did.

He said he met a prostitute in a nightclub and paid $20 to have sex with her. Between then and his arrest, she somehow shape-shifted into a donkey, although he didn’t notice it at the time.

“Your worship, I only came to know that I was being intimate with a donkey when I got arrested,” he told the court. But, he added: “I think I am also a donkey. I do not know what happened when I left the bar, but I am seriously in love with [the] donkey.” He was charged with bestiality, and a psychiatric evaluation was ordered.

Bestiality is illegal in 30 states in the U.S., but one sex therapist said there’s a community in Columbia where adolescent males practice with a donkey before they get married. Presumably, to a woman.
