I don't know, that seem like a lot for us to chew on.

The insecure male spider has since refuted the scientist's hypothesis about his 'fast sperm transfer' and called it a web of lies.

The spider now claims he's so popular with the ladies that he has trouble keeping his fly up.

There is a lot in common between human mating and spider mating. When some men get married and mate, the female doesn't actually eat the male, but sometimes, after the divorce lawyers are done, it can FEEL like you have been devoured.

Didn't Sperm Transfer open for KISS back in the 70's?
