Ive had two male sugar gliders for a year now, one neutered and one still intact. Recently my intact male has been cleaning his private areas a lot when he wakes up. It usually follows shortly after that he tries to mate with his brother so I thought maybe hes just being a male and doing his adult male thing. But its gone on every night like this. He doesnt hiss when he pees or appears to be in any pain, and Ive checked for over grooming or any redness/swollenness in or around his cloaca and it looks totally fine. I do catch his genitalia out though when I check on him after hes just waking up and started to clean it. Is he sick or just really needy?

That sounds totally normal to me, especially since he is asserting dominance.
