Rats Like Us

Here is an article in the NY Times about rats and their remarkably sophisticated personalities. And here is the money quote:

When it comes to sex, the analogies between rats and humans are “profound,” said James G. Pfaus of Concordia University in Montreal. “It’s not simply instinctual for them,” he said. “Rats know what good sex is and what bad sex is. And when they have reason to anticipate great sex, they give you every indication they’re looking forward to it.”

OK. Are we talking about going through the Kama Sutra here? What exactly is "good sex" to a rat? Hat tip to Pam on Myspace for the link.
