It's not all peace/love/dove in the bonobo community. They are a matriarchal society and the females keep the peace by ganging up and beating the holy daylights out of offending males. Jealous males will also attack other males after they finish up with their little tet ~a~tete.

It all came down to one line: "The females hold the power."

The Chimpanzees are Patriarchal communities
while the Bonobo ones are Matriarchal;

Chimpanzees solve their problems with aggressivity,
while Bonobo solve their problems with Sex...

they are the Hippies of Africa...
