"When males and females were first introduced, they usually copulated within the first 30 minutes."

Just like at college frat parties, right?

You want flies? With that?

So our counterparts in the insect world suffer like us human males. Of course black widow male spiders are even worse off.

Maybe if the male flies kept their humans zipped once in a while...
