We hypothesize that male 1 and male 2 provided parental care to this brood because both attempted to copulate
with the female during her fertile period.
Probably this male behaviour ensures them the paternity, but further studies with microsatellite markers will be necessary to confirm this hypothesis, whereas females often copulate
with male satellites.
In our behavioral trials, the longest males were usually unable to copulate
with the shortest females (Fig.
024) than females that did not copulate
after the third egg sac (see Fig.
During the first two trials the model was placed in the test cage through the side door and the subjects were allowed to copulate
with it for 1 min.
After allowing female dungflies to copulate
for a fixed time with two different males, Ward (1993) found that regardless of copulation order: (1) females stored more sperm from large than small males; (2) sperm from the two males were distributed nonrandomly across the female's three spermathecae; and (3) the larger male fertilized more eggs (see also Otronen et al.
Long-term focal observations of 10 males in the laboratory (each male attempting 4-40 copulations) demonstrate that small as well as large males (mantle length range: 14-27 cm) will attempt to copulate
in both positions within the same day.
Yet it does seem strange to say that neither the medieval belief in the Devil, nor the belief in witches in seventeenth-century Salem, was a mass paranoid delusion; and that if Judge Schreber managed to persuade a large number of people that God really did wish to copulate
with him, then that religious belief would cease to be a psychotic delusion.
Question VI: Concerning Witches who copulate

For instance, the male preying mantis typically sneaks up on a female to mate, gets his head chewed off, and yet continues to Copulate
President Clinton of the USA = to copulate
he finds interns.
The extra time may be used for copulatory courtship, or for the transfer of surplus sperm or other substances to manipulate the female's willingness to copulate
with other males, or to use sperm from them.
In a three-page article about an "upmarket" club and hotel in Leicestershire (surely an oxymoron), couples like Neil and Lianne Armstrong-Nash talked about how liberating it was to have sex with strangers, how wonderful it was to copulate
with like-minded adults in a "controlled, safe environment" while your partner/wife/mistress/ lover watched.
