How Porcupines Mate, the Bizarre Sex Habits of Giraffes (and Much, Much More)

Recommended Posts

Haha Yosephlost!

Great show as always, Daven and Simon! I'm glad this is coming back, I really missed the podcast.

I'd imagine the Preying Mantis and other things, like the Dark Fishing spider (Dolomedes Tenebrosus,) ranks up there for worst mating experience as the male dies after mating. The practice is known as sexual cannibalism. Here's a paper on the Dolomedes Tenebrosus, with research being conducted by NIH: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3730621/

I find it interesting they looked at it from a context of monogyny, and, quote: "Unexpectedly, however, we observed that mating results in obligate male death and genital mutilation."
