Nature has given us frogs that practice necrophilia, so there’s that.

Biologists have observed that in certain populations of frogs the males outnumber the females.  This leads to gang-rape on a massive scale and the poor female normally gets crushed to death in the process.  All is not lost, however, as evolution has managed to teach the males how to extract the dead female’s eggs after her expiration, enabling that sweet genetic material to continue the miracle we call ‘life’.
