Its might be like a mating thing, I wouldn't have male and female together unless you want them to breed or one has been neutered.
Cause Female GP's suffer the most from pregnancy.

Its cool No worries...

They have been close to eachother for over a month now. We let them see eachother quite a bit between cages and stuff. This is the first real alone meeting though I guess you would say... but she doesnt leave him alone lol she is always right up on him

Not very often but I've caught my Sherbet doing that kind of thing to Ebony .... and theyre both females in a group of 5 females.... I wondered if it was a hormonal or dominance type of thing... but generally they get along fine

I think it is dominance but more stay away than I'm the boss as one of my sister's pig's does it everytime one sniff's her but, she is a grumpy pig tho.

thats what we thought, but will that cahnge overtime? She only does it when he sniffs or licks down there.. She licks him everywhere.. she keeps coming back for more even if he does that and she tells him to get away...

An excited boar spraying a sow with testosterone laden pee is marking her as "his" (happens most often during introduction and when the sows comes into season). A sow spraying a pursuing/eager boar means - VERY literally - "P*ss off!"
