Spider castrates self to boost fertility chances

Check this shit out, this species of spider has been found to rip its own penis off during intercourse to increase the chance of sperm being delivered. Because its penis is still in there giving it socks. Crazy!

The red box shows a broken male organ lodged in the female spider. Tough to explain at parties.

But apparently the females can often eat the males after intercourse, so maybe he’s better off scampering away without his man-bits.

Which brings us to this central dilemma? Would you choose being eaten alive or breaking off your penis, and ensuring your survival and the survival of your species?
