In my recent post about scorpion mating habits I left things up in the air a little by only describing the opening moves. Subsequent proceedings are also a little unlike what might be expected. The male will in fact have already deposited his sperm on the ground close by shortly before engaging with the female. His object is to push and pull the female into a position above his deposit and then force her to sit down in it.
To my male readers, this is not a technique I would recommend trying. It is unlikely to be well received.
