Yes, monkeys will give up their juice to look at some hot monkey chicks ass. They'll also give up some of their sweet stash for pictures of higher ranking monkeys, even if they've never met them.
A new study found that male monkeys will give up their juice rewards in order to ogle pictures of female monkey's bottoms. The way the experiment was set up, the act is akin to paying for the images, the researchers say.
The rhesus macaque monkeys also splurged on photos of top-dog counterparts, the high-ranking primates. Maybe that's like you or me buying People magazine.
The scientists actually had to pay these guys, in the form of extra juice, to get them to look at images of lower-ranking monkeys.
Curiously, the monkeys in the test hadn't had any direct physical contact with the monkeys in the photos, so they didn't have personal experience with who was hot and who was not.
What's the most humorous about the story is that they plan a study with humans as well. Why don't they just hire some business professionals from the porn industry instead, it'd be cheaper.

Haha! Good question. Maybe they sit around and watch the dominant male monkey and all the women fighting over him, like a soap opera.
