Just found this on Google

A functional circuit underlying male sexual behaviour in the female mouse brain

In mice, pheromone detection is mediated by the vomeronasal organ and the main olfactory epithelium. Male mice that are deficient for Trpc2, an ion channel specifically expressed in VNO neurons and essential for VNO sensory transduction, are impaired in sex discrimination and male-male aggression. We report here that Trpc2-/- female mice show a reduction in female-specific behaviour, including maternal aggression and lactating behaviour. Strikingly, mutant females display unique characteristics of male sexual and courtship behaviours such as mounting, pelvic thrust, solicitation, anogenital olfactory investigation, and emission of complex ultrasonic vocalizations towards male and female conspecific mice. The same behavioural phenotype is observed after VNO surgical removal in adult animals, and is not accompanied by disruption of the oestrous cycle and sex hormone levels. These findings suggest that VNO-mediated pheromone inputs act in wild-type females to repress male behaviour and activate female behaviours. Moreover, they imply that functional neuronal circuits underlying male-specific behaviours exist in the normal female mouse brain.

A very good book on the subject is Biological Exuberance by Bruce Bagemihl - some people (and animals) are just naturally gay ;)
Lol! I just found this :p wierd topic! I got my first 2 mice on the 20th and just today i caught them both at it!! Wierd though because its always the same one on top :p :eek:
Which one is that then? She is obviously the most dominant and you will find she will do this quite abit to make sure she is still boss although it will calm down after time and then it should only happen at cleaning times or if you ontro a new doe :)
It is the darker one. She is the more dominant and more confident one so that would explaine it!! It's quite funny really :D
