China has proof that some ladies do like porn.

When Kelin, a female panda at China’s panda breeding and research center, refused the amorous advances of her male companion Yongyong, researchers took action.

They placed a television in front of her enclosure and played a video of two pandas mating in the wild — otherwise known as panda porn.

After watching the footage “there was no stopping her,” a spokesman was quoted by The Telegraph as saying.

“When the video was over, Kelin seemed to know the drill, and mated successfully with Yongyong,” the China News Service reported.

“An hour later they even tried a second time.”

The China News Service said it was the first time panda porn “was able to affect a female panda.”

Pandas are notoriously poor breeders. The females are fertile for just three days a year and seem to lose interest in sex once they are in captivity, The Telegraph said.

Researchers hope the panda porn will help more females get in the mood for love and – fingers crossed – lead to the “patter of tiny paws” at the breeding center in southwest China, the Daily Mail reported.

Disclaimer: We can't say how much of a resemblance Kelin's video of choice bore to the one below, but we're guessing it was pretty similar. Careful; it's probably NSFW:
