There are many tactics that species use to insure that they pass on their genes. This chapter makes an overview of those tactics.
Do you think this competition helps them get chicks?
Some males will follow their gals around scaring off any potential other mates.
Other guys will hang out with or on their gal until it is unlikely for her to go find one of his pals for a good time.
The Idaho Ground Squirrel is one guy that follows his gal around to keep his pals away.
Twiggy is the writer of the first letter in Dr. Tatiana’s book. She expresses her concern about her vigorous lovers. However, her lover’s vigor is what ensures that he gets to pass on his genes. For if he were less involved, surely Twiggy would be out with another fellow.
Many animals are equipped with penises covered with bristles, spines, knobs, and other strange things.
Male golden pottos have large spines covering their penises
Lions and other felines have penises with barbed tips.
This damselfly has an inflatable bulb and two horns at the tip of his penis, as well as bristles down the sides.
This one uses his penis to stimulate females to eject other’s sperm.
When a male bee reaches climax he explodes leaving his genitals inside the female.
Unfortunately for females mating with only one male bee could have its problems.
