Spiders like the Black Widow and the Praying Mantis are known to eat their mate after copulation. But there are some males who fight back to ensure the continuation of their genes.

- Bachelor biting midges' male genitalia breaks off while mating which blocks future mating sessions & ensures the quality of his sperm
