Certain boys don’t partner with girls.

Since heterosexual mating among gorillas usually takes place between one male and the multiple females who associate with him, it is not uncommon for there to be sexually mature male gorillas without mates. These males tend to gather in bachelor groups where they may engage in homosexual exchanges.

Sometimes boys have sex with boys.
