Hmm, reminds me of a joke I heard from some female stand-up comic:

My boyfriend and I went to the zoo, where we saw
an alpha male gorilla being groomed and fussed over
by his harem of females.

"See?" said my boyfriend, "That's nature's way, the
same way it's supposed to be with humans."

So I took him to the black widow exhibit....
