I suspect it's not really related to the origin of the expression
"fuck like a mink," but I am reminded of this joke:

How do women get minks?

The same way minks get minks.

The joke, I think, was probably never current enough, and perhaps is
not old enough (I have an attestation from the early 1980s or late
1970s), to have played a part in "fuck like a mink." But I could
always be wrong.
